Anybody else watching this? This is the funniest show I've seen in a while.

This is that show that's on after "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", right? I haven't given it a chance, but I heard it's pretty OK.

Yeah that's the one. It's about fantasy football of all things haha. Give it a shot if you ever get the chance, it's hilarious. As funny as It's Always Sunny is, I think I prefer the League. More my style, you know?

I just started watching this show and I'd say it's pretty hilarious. I never thought I'd like a show about fantasy football, especially since I don't keep up with sports.

Yeah I love football, but never really been much into fantasy. My brother's a big fantasy football fanatic so it's funny seeing their excitement and anger and how easy I can relate to it just from listening to him during one of his matches.

I like it, mainly because of Jon Lajoie but the show really is hilarious. I also play fantasy football so that element helps alot.

Most people I know who watch it seem to like Jon Lajoie the most and I can understand that, but I couldn't really name a favorite. Maybe Pete or Kevin because I relate the most to them, but Andre's funny as shit too. Ruxin's main comedy appeal for me comes from his serious trash-talk.

I think Ruxin might be my favorite main character, but Rafi is my favorite character overall (if the avatar didn't give it away).

I started watching this in LA. My friend kept babbling about how cool it is since it's semi scripted, and since Mark Duplass is in it, I figured it might have some interesting mumblecore touches. I'm actually curious as to what "semi" means to them, since the show still moves rather traditionally. I'm assuming they have a topic/set piece where they make up dialogue on the spot, then nitpick out any mundanity that comes in the dialogue. If that's the case, the big idea of the show is overrated. But I do enjoy it and find it compulsively watchable and the format gives it a real casual backyard-on-gameday feel.

This show really sort of went downhill, it's occasionally hilarious and the improv stuff with raffi is especially funny, but for the most part it become a show about insufferable upper class white guys who shit all over each other with hastily strewn in celebrity appearances. I feel like it's a show that never really found it's sweet spot and just keeps treading water.

It's pretty bad most of the time, but I'll still watch it whenevs. The episode where Andre has to give the expert testimony kills me every time though.
