College freshman Steve Karp and his fellow dorm-mates embark on one the greatest experiences of their lives...unfortunately for Steve, his lonely and recently divorced father is tagging along for the ride.
The premise of the show is rather mundane, but the execution of the humor is more than satisfactory. This show feels more like an internet series, yet that very same, raw, atmosphere helps develop the characters and the plot.
I find this show to be similar to It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, yet it's slightly less raunchy, but a bit more sexual. I believe this show will thrive off cult followings and it deserves success.
At times the plot may be predictable, but the delivery from each actor and the humor within the plot makes the show nothing less than entertaining. Although it does take a while to become addicted to the show, by the time you reach Season 2, you won't be able to refrain from indulging in a marathon of episodes.
Each season is rather short and the episodes themselves aren't lengthy, but if ever there was a show that got down to the point, it's The League. Shows like Lost, House, and Arrested Development are beyond amazing, but they are lengthy (which is great when you have the time to invest). This show keeps you entertained but without the excessive time commitment other shows tend to require.
If anything, give this series a chance and if you don't enjoy it, then you're too used to the mainstream version of television. Variety is essential to the entertainment industry, so do partake in the rare occasion of a series being both atypical and enjoyable.
