Product Description

Get drafted into the hilarious first season of The League, a full-contact look at the hyper-competitive, hysterically unrestrained world of fantasy football! The League's members are a tight crew of long-time buddies, but that doesn't stop an all-out blitz of trash-talking, deceit and ruthless extortion. Watch as their obsession with winning the highly coveted, yet utterly absurd championship trophy impacts their careers, sex lives, families and above all--their dignity.

Episodes on disc one:

  • The Draft
  • The Bounce Test
  • Sunday at Ruxin's
Episodes on disc two:
  • Mr. McGibblets
  • The Usual Bet
  • The Shiva Bowl

Amazon.com

Is it surprising that a comedy about a fantasy football league is secretly about marriage and male discontent? Pete (Mark Duplass, Humpday) splits with his long-term girlfriend in the first episode, Kevin (Stephen Rannazzisi) feels controlled by his wife Jenny (Katie Aselton, The Freebie), and Ruxin (Nick Kroll, A Good Old-Fashioned Orgy) is frustrated by his wife withholding sex; meanwhile Andre (Paul Scheer of comedy group Human Giant) and Taco (YouTube celebrity Jonathan Lajoie) are more or less opposite poles of singledom--a financially successful schmuck and a slacker ladies' man, respectively. This quintet of friends compete through fantasy football, but also by mocking and taking advantage of each other whenever possible. Much of the comedy comes from sex and bodily functions: Taco sings luridly inappropriate songs at children's birthday parties, the only pornography Ruxin can get away with are bra-testing videos, Kevin and Jenny's daughter excitedly handles her own poop. The semi-improvised nature of the script feeds into this, as the actors contend with crassness. What rescues The League is a frankness about the compromises of adulthood and marriage. There's just enough grit of real life in everyone's behavior to make the show feel honest--and that honesty makes the humor, more often than not, succeed. The Complete Season One features an abundance of entertaining extras beyond the obligatory blooper reel. --Bret Fetzer

Not for those easily offended by profanity or sexual innuendo, The League is the most entertaining, refreshingly witty show I've enjoyed since Arrested Development. The humor is simultaneously blatant and subtle, which may be due to the show's semi-scripted nature and the timing and the delivery of the actors, which are very well cast.

You don't need to understand football, or be a fan of the NFL to enjoy The League, although it helps if you are familiar with the teams and the names of the players, if for nothing else to understand why the characters get so excited about the draft order and picks. If you have ever worked in, gone to school with, or been in a situation with a group of friends involved in any ongoing competitive event like a Fantasy Football League you will understand and enjoy this show, provided you have a broad sense of humor.

Tonight was the second season series premiere, and in true FX style it's aired practically every hour. I've watched it twice and my abdominal muscles are sore from laughing. Watch the first season "marathon" style before viewing the new episodes if you have the opportunity.

When I first saw the commercials for this show on FX I thought it could be funny. From the first scene I was hooked, this show has to be one of the funniest shows I have seen on television. Bravo to FX for releasing shows like this. If you like Its Always Sunny you may not find it funny after watching the league. The humor is straight in the gutter and although this is an FX show it still has a fair amount of language. Its mostly guy humor, tons of sex jokes, songs about genitalia, drug references, and a deal one couple makes so porn can be watched in the house.

With that in mind, and if you are still reading then you must be into some rotten humor like I am. If so, give this series a shot.

My favorite NEW show..

Recently I've tried a few new comedy shows to get into. (Party Down, Parks & Recreation, Louie and The League of Shiva) Yeah, all of them were funny, but its The League that has truly won my heart though. I gotta say when this show first was released on FX I was in no way trying to get into it or even give it the time of day. The sixth season of Sunny was going on at the time and this show came on afterwards. Never watched longer than 5 minutes. Boy, do I not sure feel like I've missed something. This show is on point with it's humor. I laugh out loud each and every episode; can watch the same episode multiple times and it does not get old also. Each and every character offers something different to the show making each one of them a riot!
My personal favorite character is Kevin's wife. She is just perfect as the woman who is into the fantasy league just as much as her husband, if not more (picks his players, tells him who to use) yet plays it off like she isn't, it's great. The other characters include:
Taco, the over-sexed stoner who makes his own deodorant to save 4 dollars and knows hot girls drive Jettas.
Pete, the 3 time Shiva-bowl champ who is going through a divorce and who doesn't like surprise reach-arounds =)
Ruxin, or Rodney haha who is my second favorite and who is just such a douche I laugh at everything he says espeically the bounce test.
Kevin, whose fixated on winning, lets his wife choose his team and perform the usual bet.
and last but not least Andre, who is not the favorite by the league yet they all tolerate him to make fun of him. He is the typical goof-ball thats is easily influenced by his "friends".

Well the football season just started and with my boyfriend in current action with his fantasy football team, I thought this would be the perfect show. We both watch it and we love it. Its sexually humorous and great comedy. Worth the watch.

Stumbled across the League on Netflix and became hooked. Whether you love fantasy football, or can't stand it, this show will have you cracking up constantly. Extremely original content.

The League is one of my favorite shows currently on Television, making my Thursday evenings one of the most anticipated non-sports viewing times during the Fall. Season One was great and is even better on Blu-Ray. There are extended versions of each episode which don't add a lot of content but do remove any bleeping (for better or worse). There are not as many extra features as I would have liked (the only reason this is 4 stars and not 5) but they do have the full length music videos for Taco's songs as well as a few other solid items.

All-in-all, if you like the league this is probably worth purchasing for lifelong enjoyment and satisfaction. You'll be glad you pulled the trigger.

Edit: After viewing Season Two, I feel that the show really found its groove--developing the characters further and making the outrageousness absolutely integral to the plot with a big payoff in each episode. So while Season One was a bit hit or miss, for me, it really evolves into a 5 star winner!

In an effort to capitalize on the audience from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," the FX network has tried a number of promising shows. "Sunny," to me, has always been a completely inspired bit of lunacy that defies everything about the age of political correctness in which we find ourselves. It is so wrong--but that's what makes it so right. Unapologetically demented and offensive, the show has moments of brilliance. "The League" does work as a companion piece, albeit with a bit more unevenness and with mixed results. In some ways, the show tries too hard to push boundaries, to be as edgy as "Sunny." Instead of relying on its genuinely funny cast and an effective premise, the show strains for shock value. Still, I enjoyed Season One of "The League," but I don't feel as if it has reached its true potential.

Part scripted, part improvisation, "The League" revolves around a group of friends and the mania that accompanies their yearly fantasy football league. The easy camaraderie and the edge of competitiveness are present in equal measure--but let's face it, the show is about guys behaving badly. In brutal and funny sequences, the guys goad and insult one another in the ultimate game of one-ups-manship. The cast of semi-familiar faces features a great performances by comedian Paul Scheer as one of the more aggressively in-your-face competitors and newcomer Jonathan Lajoie as the most clueless and unaffected of the group.
