standing on the shoulders of giants.. and succeeding!
7 February 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The League is a show about 5 high-school buddies facing everyday life concerns while mercilessly ridiculing each other and placing way too much importance on their fantasy football league!

From the outset this show is way funny, making use of the relaxed boundaries cable TV offers. Not at all politically correct and not concerned with hurt feelings. A good comparison is 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' but having more likable characters and relying more on good humour than shock value (for the most part).

The chemistry of the cast is great. The characters play off each other really well, especially after the series finds its feet, and make for some of the more memorable TV comedy figures in recent history.

I was compelled to check this show out after looking for more TV comedy and reading about comparisons to the almighty Seinfeld. I would agree with this assessment in that it has intricate, often intersecting story lines, while having everyday situations with absurd outcomes and definitely prescribing to the 'no-hugging, no learning' ethos of Seinfeld.

Setting it apart is the 'dude' humour, and a level of crassness you can't get away with on network TV.

I was not surprised to find out the creator, directors of 'The League' had written for Seinfeld and directed episodes of another brilliant comedy 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.'

Standing on the shoulders of giants indeed but definitely succeeding in delivering a hugely funny, unpredictable show with brilliant moments of dialogue and a developing world within the show!
