So there is a show on FX that just started its second season recently
key_art_the_league.jpg

It is about a group of dudes and their fantasy football league! It is also fucking hilarious.

It also let the world know that Chad Ochocinco can sort of act, apparently.

You do not have to actually know anything about football to enjoy this glorious program - it is more about how insane the characters are and how their regular lives interact with The League.

It has some funny people in it, yes it does.
Pete - Mark Duplass

Ruxin - Nick Kroll

Taco - Jon Lajoie

Jenny - Katie Aselton

Yes I deliberately picked a sexy picture of the only girl. Misogyny is alive and well.

And some other people.

If there are too many pics here or there is already a thread for this (I searched but did not find), then let me know and I will change it!

This is a place to talk about how good this show is, and how much worse it would be without Taco.

    I'm inside me!

    And... I haven't seen much of this at all, but what I have seen was pretty enjoyable. I'll catch up, I swears it!

    If it helps anyone else, I'm not into fantasy football nor do I even watch the real thing. The show still seems worth watching, though.

    Taco is the best. The episode where he
    Spoiler:
    might be the best half hour of TV I've ever seen.

    I also love how they've completely stepped up the "shitting on Andre at all times" thing

    And I love Jenny, I want that character to be my wife

    Yes, the fantasy football premise is essentially just an excuse to get these guys together and drinking a lot

    I mean they talk about it all the time obviously but it is funny

    I fucking hate fantasy football, it's incredibly boring to me, but this show is awesome

    I randomly met all of them except for Pete at a bar last weekend.

    It was awesome. Kevin cockpunched my friend and I and Shivablasted at the top of his lungs a whole lot.

    "Sometimes I crap when I puke"

    e Gork that is awesome
    I imagine they all hang out together outside of the show because I just want it to be true
    Were they doing promotion or were they actually just hanging out

    They had just done a stand-up show in the area and Nick Kroll went to Georgetown, so he brought them out to a bar in Georgetown.

    I could tell they were definitely trying to cruise for ladies but dudes (including my group of friends) would not leave them alone. Luckily, my friend's girlfriend is attractive, so we were able to hold their attention for a bit.

    I'm also pretty sure I creeped out Jon Lajoie when I told him I had a boner.

    This television show is going to be on FX in less than 6 minutes.

    More dudes should watch this thing right here.

    Oh my god, the reunion. Everybody walking in just when Ruxin gets to his vinegar strokes might have been the funniest thing I've ever seen on TV. Hyah!
