One of my favorite new shows. Freaking hilarious and original.
Hope the third season is going to be as good as or better as the second.

For anyone interested in politics, this is a GEM. For those interested in downright great writing, DITTO, or just hilarious situational comedy DITTO AGAIN. Don't miss it!

The four main characters are 3 dimensional real human beings with some really strange foibles and obnoxious political views at times, but they are consistent in their views except when they are not wanting to be consistent. All the topics are on the table...LGBT, corruption,lobbying and influence peddling just to name a few. The resolutions come with incredibly creative solutions every time, not just your expected endings.

This was just hilarious. Bill Murray is a national treasure! He's in it just enough to leave you wanting more. Why did they cancel it!?!

I wish the characters were more likable on the whole, but in some ways therin lies the charm of this show and also makes it slightly more realistic. You probably wouldn't like every politician you voted for if you actually got to know them. The writing on this show is very good--there's enough humor to balance a politics-based plot. Recommended.

Dunesbury Creator Gary Trudeau strikes again with this slanted look inside Politics , with a House full of Questionable Politicians, as they stumble thru their Terms in office !

A little flat but every now and then flashes of true comedic genius can be seen. John Goodman is great! Will watch a second season

Sad this show only lasted as long as it did. John Goodmin continues to be funny and as far as satirical political comedies go this was one of the best.
