The League, FX's new comedy series set against the backdrop of a fantasy football league, is about friendship, marriage, parenting, and growing up... or refusing to grow up. Every fall an estimated 30-35 million men and women participate in fantasy football leagues. Fantasy football provides an outlet for good-natured competition and camaraderie between friends and colleagues, but that's not always the case. Deception, trickeration, one-upmanship, win-at-all costs mentality are prevalent in the world of fantasy football and it's no different in The League. The emotional tentacles of fantasy football extend to personal relationships, marriages and the workplace, all fertile ground for comedy.
The League is absolutely hilarious. It's stupid but funny stupid, absurd and vulgar but that what makes The League what it is. Great actors doing crazy antics and crazy sexual jokes run rampant as they do what it takes to win the league. Definitely for adults only as there is nowhere else you can watch Eskimo brothers and their vinegar strokes.
The League is a sitcom based around a group of people fighting their way through life all brought together by a Fantasy Football League. The League is a way for the men to get away from their relationships, commitments, wives and responsibilities. The show is witty, the characters are original and well cast plus the show is funny as hell. I recommend this show if you feel like laughing.
As someone who doesn't watch or follow much football I wasn't sure about this show at first but in reality the fantasy league is just a vessel to follow that interactions of a group of friends that constantly find themselves in increasingly bizarre and hilarious situations. Watching this show is truly a fun ride.
