There's no good excuse for not being up on this show. You like football, you're probably in a fantasy league yourself, and there's an 8 out of 10 chance that your crew dynamic resembles that of Pete, Kevin, Ruxin, Taco, and Andre. (Every crew definitely has an Andre, the successful dork who fails spectacularly at trendhumping.) You will love it. Also, NFL players and analysts make frequent cameos.
The semi-improvised comedy found its footing last year with a stellar third season (peaking with a hilarious Thanksgiving episode guest-starring Jeff Goldblum and Sarah Silverman), but we've been sold on it ever since the pilot featured football nuts Kevin and the fantastically droll Ruxin letting league business dictate a plea deal. Add in fan favorite Taco's weekly, often musical, antics and meme-worthy terms like "vaginal hubris" and The League is one breakthrough season away from fully blowing up.
