The League:The Funniest Show I Never Watched
The following is a repost of my review of The League which just started Season 4 on FX Network. Check it out on Thursdays at 9:30/10:30pm.
My wonderful friends, The McDougalls, told me about a great show on FX Network called The League. Amazingly, I had never heard of this show even though it comes on right after one of my favorites, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. So I checked it out on Netflix Instant Streaming. If you don't know about this show, you need to watch it. It's absolutely hilarious and so well-written. The cast has such a great chemistry together. It's as if they really are five guys who went to high school together. The League refers to the Fantasy Football League that the guys have called the Shiva League (after their homely high school valedictorian). Each year they compete mercilessly with one another for the coveted Shiva, the trophy which has her picture on it. These guys get together regularly at Gibson's, a Chicago steakouse, to discuss the League and trash-talk. They also send video chats to one another with the most vile, disgusting insults you can imagine. And it is so funny, you won't be able to catch your breath.
Here's a line-up of the cast (pun intended):
Pete (Mark Duplass)- newly divorced and in a job he hates.
Ruxin (Nick Kroll)- jewish guy married to a latina girl, has a baby, germaphobe, lawyer
Kevin (Stephen Rannazzisi)- married to Jenny (Katie Aselton) who is also a league enthusiast, has never won the Shiva.
Andre (Paul Scheer)- plastic surgeon, socially awkward, metrosexual
Taco (Jon Lajoie)-Kevin's brother, essentially homeless, borderline mentally disabled, gorgeous and the ladies love him
After watching all 3 seasons, I would now like to list some of the goodies you can look forward to in this show. If you have already watched this show, please enjoy this walk down memory lane:
