Did You Know?


Throughout the show the group is often watching NFL football on a TV and occasionally clips of games are shown on the full screen, but they are never actually NFL games. Most clips are somewhat nondescript, but appear to be real football games (not staged) at the college level. See more »


Kevin: [whispering] I need you to teach me how to be a liar.
Ruxin: You don't need to whisper. We're at a law firm. Lying is encouraged here. Look, I'm not your guy for this. You need a low-level maintenance liar like Pete. "No, I've never been married before." "Yeah, I definitely own my own home." "No, this isn't a cold sore." I'm the guy who you come to when you're ready to perjure yourself to protect an Australian mining consortium.
Kevin: Ruxin, you are the best worst person I know.

Best New Show of the Fall Season!
22 October 2009 | by Ryan_McLellandSee all my reviews

So FX sent me a disc of the first two shows of 'The League'. I only really recognized Paul Scheer from 30 Rock and the luscious Nadine Velazquez (My Name Is Earl) but that didn't stop me from instantly bonding with these characters.

There people are the people I hang out with .... hell they are me. Some married, some single, and one guy in the middle of a separation. They are all friends with girlfriends ...or spouses...they go out together or they hang at the house for a birthday party. But the one common central they seem to LOVE is fantasy football.

It interacts in their daily lives - and this half-scripted show seems to capture quite well how goes REALLY act with one another. At least the way I act with my friends. But they go a bit more for their fantasy football league. Get caught doing something bad? She won't tell...if you trade Payton Manning.

Mark Duplass is damn good as the central character whose fantasy football really keeps him going. He's the guy who needs his lucky shirt for fantasy draft day and when he can't find it...suspects his wife through it out.

The cast is awesome...and it is a show I'm going to love to watch throughout the football season.
