    Re: The League

    watched the 1st episode and thought it was awful. the way the draft went was stupid-nobody would seriously try to draft keyshawn johnson in 2009-especially not somebody in a league where they took it seriously enough to have a trophy made. i realize it's a comedy, but those kind of details annoyed me to the point that i won't watch it again.

    Re: The League

    I laughed pretty hard at the song Taco played at the little girls birthday party. All in all a pretty funny show but I don't think it will be confused with Arrested Development or Reno 911.

    I am about ready to put Sunny in Philly at the same level as Arrested Development. Question for Philly fans, is Dee kind of hot? I have watched that show since the beginning and I still can't decide.

    I'll say she's hot...but maybe a little too skinny. Kinda looks like she's on drugs I guess.

    I will say that The League is pretty funny, especially for those that play FFL. Good show and worth DVRing.

    Re: The League

    I was originally not big on the league.. I find the premise of the show a little ridiculous.. but the more i've seen it (it's on right after sunny so i end up watching it), the more I like it... not coincidently, the more i like also coincides with them doing less and less "fantasy football stuff".

    I think the show could be funny in it's own right without such a heavy reliance on the fantasy football aspect. It seems too forced most of the time.

    Tonight's episode was hillarious. With Taco dressing up as the little girls toy and ending up robbing the house - laughed pretty hard at that. Also, when Andre is caught watching the sex tape... good stuff/

    Not that funny and definitely could have been done much better. I was expecting so much more when I first heard about this.

    Count me in as well with the rest that find it pretty funny. Agree with Hawkeye_t that Taco's song at the kids party was hilarious

    Re: The League

    The League is a good follow up after Sunny. The whole "trade-rape" thing with Plaxico Burress last night kind of annoyed me, because that dude has been dominating their league all season and he doesn't know that Plax is in jail for two years? Come on. That's amateur. They must have let some junior high kids write that into the story.

    The joke was set up every week though... That guy has won,but gets lucky... He always tries to add, draft guys that are retired...
