The League cast

"The League" review by Suzanne 9/10/15
Airs Wednesdays 10pm on FX

I didn't like this show when I first saw it, but it's definitely gotten funnier. The characters are silly, but they've got a good rapport, and very funny things happen. I don't like football, but you really don't have to like football to enjoy the show.

I'm not saying it's the funniest show ever, but it's not bad. I would say that you should watch it and see if you like it or not. Even though it's about a bunch of guys that play fantasy football, it's really not about that. It's just about these funny guys and how they joke around with each other.

Check it out!

MORE INFORMATION:

To be a fan of The League, you don't need to know much about fantasy football, or sports at all. You just need to have friends that you hate. The ensemble comedy follows a group of old friends in a fantasy football league who care very deeply... about beating each other for bragging rights.

The League was created by the husband-and-wife team of Jeff Schaffer (Curb Your EnthusiasmSeinfeld) and Jackie Marcus Schaffer (Disturbia, Eurotrip) who serve as executive producers and directors. The series is produced by FX Productions.

The League features an ensemble cast of rising actors/comedians.  Stephen Rannazzisi (Paul Blart: Mall Cop) is “Kevin,” a happily married father and commissioner of the league.  Katie Aselton (Black Rock) plays “Jenny,” Kevin’s wife and his better half - especially when it comes to Fantasy Football. Mark Duplass (Tammy) plays “Pete,” the perennial league champ who is struggling to become an adult. Jon Lajoie is “Taco,” Kevin’s little brother, a part-time musician and full-time stoner with little interest in fantasy other than hanging with his buddies (whom he struggles to remember). Nick Kroll (Kroll Show) plays “Ruxin,” who believes he is the smartest of the group but can't figure out how exactly the other guys are screwing him over. “Andre,” played by Paul Scheer (NTSF:SD:SUV), has continued to be the punching bag of the group since their high school days – a fact that hasn’t changed despite the fact he is now a successful plastic surgeon.
