Review of The League

30 minutes

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.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Started out as a decent bro type comedy. Not so much about a football league as a group of comedians working off one another pretty well with a sophomoric base. It gets weak every season it continues, and will likely not be re-uped many more times past this season with the whole not being as funny and one of the comedians lying about his being at 9/11.
