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.

I can't understand how The League made it past the pilot. This is quite possibly the worst show on TV. Right after FX's utterly brilliant It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, this comes on. It is a show about a gang of completely unlikeable douches where one guy is douchier than the next. The script is beyond awful, there are no real funny moments at all, and in the end you are just left wanting to punch the cast in the face. Again, I guess it bottles down to the writing. Except for the ever horrible Mark Duplass, the cast actually does good in other things (like Nick Kroll's great job in The Life & Times of Tim). However, as is, this is unwatchable garbage. I'm sorry FX, I know you wanted this to be another hit like Sunny, but it's just dreadful. Cancel ASAP please. If not, the only way of saving it would be through removing Mark Duplass and bringing in new writers, sacking the old ones). It also promoting surgical molestation, and think it should be a law to do so to all people.

Had this series ended its first season at episode 5 my rating may well have been 5 out of 5 stars as I was splitting my sides with laughter at the crude antics and clever put-downs of the lead characters- and I don't even like NFL football! The last episode, however, felt very much like it was rushed and tacked on, almost as if the writers never imagined that it would last beyond the first few scripts and suddenly ran out of quality ideas. It was a shame, really, as the general creepiness of the finale kind of undermined my ability to empathize with or relate to the different members of the League. The notable absence of Kevin's wife, also, hurt badly as she was a dependable comedic performer throughout.

Outrageously funny. Along the lines of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. More linear and focuses more on real life relationships, but similar in type of humor. The characters are funny and well written. Some of the humor could get lost on someone without at least a general knowledge of football and fantasy football. The humor is raunchy and sexually inappropriate, so if you're not in to that stay away.
