I just watched the first season of FX's The League. The six episodes that make up the first season are now available for Netflix's instant watch viewing and I highly recommend it, in fact, I watched all six episodes in one sitting. It is that good. The League is from the one of the writers of the Cyrus, Mark Duplass. As I wrote about in an earlier post, I was a big fan of Cyrus, so anything from its writer is welcome addition to TV.
The League is about a group of friends whose relationship is centered around their fantasy football league and how each friends need to win the championship trophy - The Shiva affects their lives. There are great performances from entire cast. In addition, the characters are distinct from each other, have their own interesting personalities and are backed up by strong and funny storyline premises.
Definitely a Netflix Instant Watch Gem everyone should try and see.
**** out of **** stars.
