Amazon's first original series is now available to watch on Prime Instant Video. The first three episodes of Alpha House are available on the service now — the first season will be 11 episodes long — with additional episodes launching every Friday. The political comedy was created by Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau and stars the likes of John Goodman, Wanda Sykes, and Amy Sedaris, and it's the first show to make it to production through Amazon's pilot program. The Amazon Originals series is the company's attempt to compete with Netflix shows like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, though Amazon's efforts haven't been well received so far. We'll be able to tell you whether Alpha House manages to live up to Amazon's lofty goals very soon with our upcoming review.
