I remember watching The League for the first time when it aired. The idea of the show was so stupid that I thought it was genius. I had seen commercials for it leading up to the series premiere. It was a bunch of friends who were too obsessed with fantasy football that real-life decisions were somehow tied into their fantasy football decisions. I loved the show from the start. I didn’t think the American public would dig it as much as I did.
As the show continued on, we got to see more silliness to keep the show running. A show solely based on fantasy football was going to be a difficult one so they had to include some weird characteristics to the main cast to keep it interesting. Its popularity allowed them to get celebrities and even actual football players to have cameos. Ultimately, it still made fantasy football its central focal point.
I loved every minute of it. I laughed so hard all the time.
