The League

I think the show will have enough gags non-fantasy related (such as Taco's song at the birthday party and the pubic hair joint) to keep those people amused.

Good debut episode though.

I taped it, but the DVR ended way too early, I think. It was pretty much right after the whole Adrian Peterson traded for a 5 year sentence thing. I started taping right after It's Always Sunny (which went about 2 minutes long). But what you guys are talking about (they showed the draft???) seems like it was way more than 2 minutes of the show lost.

I was also curious what they were doing with 6 guys in a league.

They said a couple of the guys were on 'auto-pilot'.

Some guys were on auto draft and some were on the phone but they never made a actual appearance.

Anyone wondering how that winner of the league who is this chubby mediocre looking guy gets that hot a** blond? I couldn't help but to wonder throughout the whole show.

I'm pretty sure that was the first full-on, graphic rape scene in network TV history.

It was really uncomfortable.

It's cable (FX) and rated MA so I figure that plays into it...but yes, I was wondering the same thing. She can stick her finger in my a** anytime. Heck, I'd even pay. :)

Seriously. I would. B)

Clips are on Hulu so i don't know why they wouldn't eventually put the full episode up.

From TV Guide: They'll re-air the pilot at 12:30AM on Nov 5.

On FX tomorrow at 10:30 PM.

It's also listed on On Demand of some cable providers.

I'll get around to watching it but from all that I have read about it I don't think I'll be too impressed. I was really disappointed with HBO's Eastbound and Down earlier this year in spite of the creative element involved and I'm getting the same sort of vibe from this.

It's not bad. I think the acting is sub-par and they try too hard with some of the jokes but I don't mind watching it.

But how many guys are in this league? Like 6? haha

This thread is stirring up images of a My Boys episode from a while back.

Six close friends get together for the annual fantasy baseball draft at a bar. All of the things you would make a joke about were there:

- the guy who insists on using a laptop that doesn't work

- the guy who tries drafting by phone, and alternately picks out of turn and tries taking selected players ("Is Pujols available?")

- someone take a favorite player of another owner, so she responds by taking his favorite player

Yahoo actually set up a league for them and you could view their teams. Unfortunately, someone forgot to keep up with it, so their lineups never changed, and many pitchers never started for them.

But I give them credit for trying.....

Last night's episode was a step down from the premier IMO...It was more a "Always Sunny" for married guys. It still has promise to have some very episodes though.

Plus, that Latin chick from My Name is Earl is on it, and she's worth the price of admission.

I hadn't even heard of the show until I saw it show up on my DVR list. Come to find out, my wife started recording the series for me becuase she knew I would love it.....and she was dead on. The show is absolutely hilarious.

During the show I couldn't help but tell her how the exact same scenarios came up during the various drafts I attend....and by the end of the night (two back-to-back episodes) she thought I was such a fantasy nerd she was ready to draw up the divorce papers.

Pretty cool of your wife to do something like that...
