the league
25 November 2009 | by bruntrdSee all my reviews

when i first heard about this show being about fantasy football i was interested. but after seeing this show it is 80% comedy and 20% fantasy football. so you don't have to be a fantasy football player to enjoy it. obviously if you do like fantasy football you'll get all the jokes. but it also offers straight up guy comedy, and its really good guy comedy. the show is too funny, and its on cable. easily the funniest show fx has come out with. since always sunny started on hbo and doesn't really count, "the league" is their show. all i know is that i want to know what happens throughout the season. and if this series succeeds like it should, how can it end. because fantasy football is going to be around for a while. watch the show, its funny.
