    hilarious new comedy... It features a great cast and characters that are taken to the extreme, yet never come across as caricatures... Tune in

    some incredibly well observed quirks and 'misjokes' of the American political system kept it fresh and on-target.
    Three episodes in and you’ll be well and truly hooked
