Has anyone watched this hilarous show yet?

It's a half hour comedy that follows 'Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia' on Thursday nights.

 

I can't believe how much shit they get away with in this show through two episodes so far.

Why You Should Watch 'The League'

By Mindy Monez, TWoP | Wednesday, September 15, 2010, 6:04 PM

 

 

Are you watching "The League"?

FX/Jeremy CowartThe second season of "The League" begins September 16, and though it's on a popular cable network (FX) and is by far one of the funniest shows on television, we keep having a hard time finding people who have seen it. Here are the main reasons why it's worth your time. Other than the fact that it's, you know, hilarious.

 

 

 

The Cast

 

 

Everyone in the cast is funny and they all have a genuinely great chemistry with each other. You really believe they're friends, and since the show is only semiscripted, you get great moments of ad-libbing that are funnier than any sitcom's scripted moments.

 

 

 

These Are Your Friends

 

 

It's a time-honored requirement of sitcom characters, but it's in place for a reason — everybody knows at least one of these guys' real-life counterparts. Paul Scheer's character is Andre, the insecure guy who thinks he's become a big shot and wears silly hats he saw on "Entourage." Taco (Jonathan Lajoie) is the weirdo stoner. Nick Kroll's character is a sarcastic jerk with a boring job. Kevin (Stephen Rannazzisi) is the married one whose kid embarrasses him. They're everymen, only funnier.

You Don't Need to Know Anything About Football to Find It Funny

 

 

Yes, there will be a scene that shows the league's draft, and if you don't know anything about football you'll be a little bit in the dark, but scenes like that are always peppered with jokes and asides that have nothing to do with sports, so you'll always have something to laugh at.

 

 

 

But If You Do Know Things About Football, It's Awesome

 

 

There are discussions of Adrian Peterson's beautiful Purple Jesus hammies. There is mockery of a foolish league member who drafted Tiki Barber — in 2009. Cursing of Joseph Addai. Endless Ochocinco jokes. The show's definitely more about this group of comedians hanging out than it is about football, but the football references that are there are very enjoyable, if you're into that.

 

 

 

Taco

 

 

All the Leaguers are very funny, but Taco is the most universally awesome. He participates in the league despite not knowing anything about football or even really knowing what it is, he tries to pay his league fees in poems and homemade hummus, and he's the kind of man who marches up to the manager of a car dealership and says, "My name is Taco, and I wanna work here," and gets hired on the spot.

    • New album 'Life Will Never Be The Same' out March 3 through Mighty Music. Press release: After their previous release “The Sky is the Limit”, Norwegian band STARGAZER entered the radar of connoisseurs of the hard rocking world. The group was loudly hailed as one to watch. They received a lot of great reviews all over the western world and were, back then in late 2019, ready to take on the world for serious touring. But serious touring saw an abrupt end due to Covid-19 for almost every band in 2020-21, with Stargazer being no exception. The nordic five-piece didn’t loose their spirit and, diligently, took the downtime to start penning their next album. Produced by guitar player William Ernstsen and vocalist Tore André Helgemo, “Life Will Never Be The Same” is the result of those dark times with a silver lining ahead. Engineered by William at Jedimasterstudios, Trondheim, and mixed and mastered in Medley Studios, Copenhagen, by Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Electric Guitars, etc), “Life Will Never Be The Same” is exactly the kind of album that you’d expect from a matured Stargazer and then some. The five-piece powerhouse hammers on with Scandinavian vibes that consists of virtuosity and a vintage sound with a modern twist. Firing on all cylinders in combination with the sense of good melodies, great riffs, solos and songwriting handcraft. With one of rock’s best voices and one of the best blues-based hard rock guitar players around today. All this on top of a rock steady hard groove with killer rock songs such as “Live My Dream”, or down to the most tender and heartfelt tunes, as for example the single “Live Today”, with emotions worn on their sleeves. “Live Will Never Be The Same” is the sound of Norwegian classic hard rock flagship, and Stargazer sets sail again with its this third release in their discography. One to change their life – and yours – for good. Tracklisting: 1. Can You Conceive It 2. Live My Dream 3. Rock The Sky 4. Live Today 5. Don’t Kill 6. Will I Come To Heaven 7. Heartbroken 8. Turn Off The Light 9. Beyond The Moon 10. Take Me Home 11. Push Me    
    • Forgot to mention this here, but last month I was officially declared as in remission.
    • Hope he makes a full recovery. If it was me, I would change next years tour name to Operation Heartcrime.
    • Former QUEENSRŸCHE Singer GEOFF TATE Underwent Aortic Valve Replacement December 6, 2022   May contain affiliate links   Former QUEENSRŸCHE singer Geoff Tate has revealed that he underwent an aortic valve replacement this past summer. According to NHS, an aortic valve replacement is a type of open-heart surgery used to treat problems with the heart's aortic valve.   The aortic valve controls the flow of blood out from the heart to the rest of the body. An aortic valve replacement involves removing a faulty or damaged valve and replacing it with a new valve made from synthetic materials or animal tissue.   The 63-year-old musician discussed his health in a new interview with Beneath A Desert Sky. Asked how he is feeling, nearly five months after his operation, Tate said: "I feel really good overall. This might be the first time I'm telling someone in the press what I went to the hospital for. I had a procedure done called an aortic valve replacement in my heart. Long story short, I was feeling very fatigued one day while on tour. It was challenging for me to climb stairs. Anyway, I thought it best to get checked out, and after several tests from my doctor, he indicated that this particular type of surgery needed to be done. I'd say it took around a month [after the surgery] before I started feeling better. Honestly, I could barely walk after it, and I couldn't sing at all. Before this, I'd never been in a hospital in my life."   He added: "I can't say that I'm feeling '100 percent' better, so to speak. However, I'm definitely feeling a lot better now than I was over the summer. Just taking it a day at a time and am grateful to get back on the road." On July 3, Tate took to his Facebook page to share a photo of him with Dr. Sami Kueri from the department of cardiovascular surgery at the Universitäts-Herzzentrum Freiburg-Bad Krozingen (University Heart Center Freiburg) in Bad Krozingen, Germany, and he included the following message: "All my gratitude to the talented Dr. Sami Kueri for giving me a healthy heart!! Feeling so much better each day!" In June, Tate said that he would take a few months off the road as he recovered from a medical procedure.   On June 13, Geoff, who fronted QUEENSRŸCHE for 30 years — from the band's inception through 2012 — took to his social media to write: "I am having a medical procedure and my health professionals want me to recover over the Summer. I will be back and rocking South America in January. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the road." Tate's recent tour celebrated the 30th anniversary of QUEENSRŸCHE's "Empire" and "Rage For Order" albums. In April 2014, Tate and QUEENSRŸCHE announced that a settlement had been reached after a nearly two-year legal battle where the singer sued over the rights to the QUEENSRŸCHE name after being fired in 2012. Fellow original QUEENSRŸCHE members Michael Wilton (guitar),Scott Rockenfield (drums) and Eddie Jackson (bass) responded with a countersuit. The settlement included an agreement that Wilton, Rockenfield and Jackson would continue as QUEENSRŸCHE, while Tate would have the sole right to perform the albums "Operation: Mindcrime" and "Operation: Mindcrime II" in their entirety live.   Tate was replaced in QUEENSRŸCHE by former CRIMSON GLORY singer Todd La Torre. Geoff will embark on a tour in 2023 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of "Operation: Mindcrime".
