It was funny
23 April 2013 | by dodgson1832See all my reviews

I am looking for more episodes to come out, the first one was funny. I really thought that John Goodman was great as a lazy senator who isn't all that concerned with his job and I really liked the house dynamic. It will be interesting to see where they head from this point but I felt the interpersonal dynamics of the show felt a bit like Boston Legal. I know that Gary Trudeau wrote this but it did really feel like he took some pointers from some other popular shows. There is certainly nothing groundbreaking or insanely funny in the show, but it was still very good overall. If you have 30 minutes or so to kill give it a chance.
