Alpha House: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Alpha House: Season 1 (2013)




Critic Consensus: A hodgepodge of subtle humor, indifferent characters and an unfocused comedy style, Alpha House contains realistic themes and concrete performances that wrangle sporadic chuckles.

Critic Reviews for Alpha House: Season 1

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (17)

Alpha offers plenty of wit and clever touches, like the sugar bowl on the breakfast table that the roomies keep filled with flag pins.

While I don't love Alpha House, I still like it; mostly because of the easy chemistry between Goodman and his co-stars.

Plenty of partisan shenanigans to satirize, like Veep, but, unlike Veep, nothing addictive about it.

The writing is smart, the characters are amusing, the cameos are entertaining, and the political commentary is as pointed as you might suspect.

Alpha House may be Amazon's first original program, but it doesn't feel all that original.

Ultimately, it's too hard to see if the series is going for satire, farce or character-driven humor. Alpha House could have benefited from some beta testing.
