Editorial Reviews

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

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

5.0 out of 5 stars "Hilarious whether or not you're an NFL fan..." September 16, 2010
Format:DVD
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.

Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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.

Great TV show! It starts off as a show about Fantasy Football but as the series goes on, the FF is in the background! So many great characters on this show. Watch it!!

I watched the season before buying. I really liked the extra scenes sections or gaffe reals. If you liked the broadcast versions then buy them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious September 26, 2013

Really funny show. Only six episodes in season one though. It might be worth it to watch this on Netflix instead.
