'The League: The Complete First Season'
(Katie Aselton, Mark Duplass, Nick Kroll, Stephen Rannazzisi, Paul Scheer, et al / 2-Disc DVD / NR / 2010 / 20th Century Fox)

Overview: Set against the backdrop of a fantasy football league, the hysterical new show provides a unique and heightened look at male-female relationships layered with beer drinking, biting put-downs, sexual innuendos and the occasional reference to Peyton Manning.

DVD Verdict: 'The League' is a semi-scripted comedy created by Jackie and Jeff Schaffer about a fantasy football league. This installment shows the first six episodes and it has been renewed for 13 episodes in the second season. It follows around men and their wives obsessed with football and how it interferes with their daily lives. One example of this is in the pilot, two lawyers are negotiating a plea bargain that involves some fantasy football trades in exchange for a shorter sentence for the criminal. Wow.

Even without knowing much about football (though I bet it helps quite a bit), this is a comedy that can be enjoyed just poking fun at what losers they all are. Vulgar guy humor plus one of the most popular testosterone-driven sports in existence equals a guy show. Usually I like guy shows, this isn't one of them. It's funny but actually gets pretty gross beyond my taste level which surprised me.

There is situational humor with a couple trying to have a baby, a couple trying to get intimate after having a baby, the torture of wives who want you to sit at the dinner table when the game is on, the shame of your wife picking your team for you, trying to ensnare a child prophet to help you, and the challenge of trying to be on two leagues at the same time. I totally recommend this for guys who like vulgar humor and football. Everyone else can safely steer clear!!
