People liked that episode?

By far the worst episode of all time.

Agree. There were some funny parts but it would have made more sense if it was the Rafi and Dirty Randy show and not an episode of The League.

A show's not allowed to go off the rails and do something completely different for one episode?

You guys are no fun.

Thought it was Ok. I'm a big Seth Rogen fan though. Some of the dialogue was hilarious.

I would have preferred them going back and forth between the guys and them though instead of just a whole episode devoted to them.

The League is serious business.

I'm still tuning in every week but this season has lacked involvement in the day to day of the fantasy football league.

It should have ended after Season 3. Raffi being awesome aside, Season 4 was ok, Season 5 so far is possibly the worst thing I have seen in a while.

If this show gets picked up for a 6th, the people at FX/FXX really are real life Taco's.

The best part about the show was that it was about a bunch of guys, mid 30's that were in a football fantasy league and took it way too serious. Now it's about farts, broads, and aids...well this season 5 anyway. Somewhere in between you have solid cameos of NFL players and a tiny bit of fantasy football talk and tomfoolery.

There aren't the pranks, bets, or bad trades with videos posted and reactions. Season 1 is gold. Season is somewhat acceptable and fun, Season 3 is when you start to notice that the show got away from itself.

The Andre stuff is just too obvious now, it's like constantly picking on that one friend to the point where you feel sad doing it and it makes you feel depressed about it, it's not funny anymore and that was something that was funny every now and then. Taco is by far the most annoying character on the show and now his brother has joined him.

In the end if you no longer find it funny, no need to keep watching or concern yourself with whether it gets picked up for another season. The people who continue to enjoy it will be happy if it gets another season and it'll be no skin off your nose if that happens.

The League was renewed for a 6th season before the 5th even aired. Sorry to ruin your days.

I actually thought that last episode was good. The gang has gotten lame and jokes are stale so this was a nice change.


Kevin has really annoyed me more than Andre this season....his face is so punchable.

I don't really disagree. It's not the same show it was even in Season 3.

I especially agree that they've turned Andre into a sad joke. And I don't really like that either.

But at the same time....honestly, you can only do so much "pranks, bets, bad trades with videos posted" before it starts to get repetitive. I think Season 5's been better than Season 4.

So many quotable lines...

"If you need two dicks and three balls"...

"The Accused is like Sleepless in Seattle meets The Proposal meets non-consensual sex"

"Are you thinking a Pretty Woman dress-up montage?"

"The only people you can blow at this party are other eleven year olds"

"We have not been on the same page this trip, AT ALL"

That said, I love Raffi, Kevin Nealon and most irreverent improv comedy, and understand why people wouldn't like that episode...

Also, David Krumholtz got FAT...

Fascinating night in The League, and I don't mean Ruxin's. If you whined I didn't tweet your team, you'll get over it. It's not NHL A to Z.

Definitely. It just wasn't funny, so...

Agree with those saying the show is not nearly as good as it used to be, but I still enjoy tuning in for a laugh.

That episode was HILARIOUS from start to finish. Best one in probably 2 seasons.

Can we discuss how hilarious Ruxin is whenever he is doing "legal" stuff? I would probably pay Nick Kroll to represent me in real life at this point.

Last night with Andre was hilarious. This season has been great - how many shows can say that they have been sufficiently solid for five seasons?
