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.

As someone who doesn't watch or follow much football I wasn't sure about this show at first but in reality the fantasy league is just a vessel to follow that interactions of a group of friends that constantly find themselves in increasingly bizarre and hilarious situations. Watching this show is truly a fun ride.
