So I just started watching this show on Hulu, and this show is up there with Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia so far. I am not really that big into football but the show is written to still be hilarious even if you don't u know football too well. It even has the "Show me you Genitals" guy!
I am with you on this show. I love fantasy football, but after watching the commercials thought to myself "I don't see how they can make a good show that centers around fantasy football". Luckily fantasy football is only one of many elements to the show, and it's mostly confined to some pretty good shit-talking. I love most of the characters and there is a ton of random funny moments. All in all it is a very pleasant suprise in my opinion.
Well leading up to the premiere they promoted it hardcore. But all the commercials were the guys talking fantasy football, and din't make the show look nearly as funny as it really is. I wouldn't worry too much though, FX does a really good job of giving their shows ample time before they make any big decisions. I don't think Always Sunny had that great of viewership the first season, and now are doing great in the ratings because they were given a couple of seasons. I bet FX will do the same with The League, the cast is way too good not to.
Yeah Its Always Sunny Didn't really take off tell after season 2 so I hope the let the league sit. I know it is getting pretty good viewing via hulu. I just wish when FX was promoting it they showed some non football related stuff. I mean some of the best jokes are football related but it definitely is still funny even without the football jokes and I think a lot of people who don't pay much attention to football blew it off.
