An Awesome show that I recommend even if you don't like football!
15 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My dad has me hooked on this show. it took about 3 episodes before I absolutely had to watch. It is now a part of my DVR schedule, and if you have Netflix, the show has all seasons minus the 2013 season on it. It appears FxX is repeating a bunch of the 2013, so people should be able to catch up.

While it is based off a group that does fantasy football, they do an extremely great job of explaining things that require no football knowledge at all (even though, you may miss out on all the football player cameos that hit). About the only thing that is not explained well, that adds to the humor of many episodes, is the importance of the "first pick" when you create your team for the first time. Think of it like when you were in high school, and people were picking a team for basketball. If only one kid was 7' tall in senior high, obviously everyone wanted him first on their team.

It reminds me of an adult version of The Guild. When I say adult, there is a lot of drug and sex reference. When I say drug, when they hit the bong they actually hit the bong, and either real fake pot smoke or CGI smoke is seen, unlike some shows that only imply it. Also, you will see, at the least, the ass of a few guys as well as a girl. There are even a few "watching porn" scenes where I can't help but wonder how this show made it to extended cable and not HBO/Max. This show has maintained a TV-MA status that puts South Park to shame! There is also plenty of language. The F bomb is the only thing that gets bleeped, everything else is pretty much fair game. The "other" version of cat, as well as many other references.

Overall, the humor is extremely raunchy. One of the writers of the show did such works as The Dictator, Bruno, EuroTrip, Seinfeld, and even Herman's Head (I miss that show). If you are familiar with the humor of these first two shows, then you can imagine what to expect here. Fans of The Mindy Project will be familiar with one main cast member, as well as a few of the guest stars that show up.

The downside to this show is that to get the best value for your watching is you have to watch every episode. Some people, such as myself, will actually enjoy this aspect, however if you are one who likes to pick and choose, a lot of the in-joke humor will not be as funny as it otherwise could be.

Still, I am extremely pleased with The League, and hope it continues on for many seasons to come. If you cannot get into it by the 3rd episode, then it may not be a show for you. I was beyond hooked by the second episode.
