Quotes

Kevin: [whispering] I need you to teach me how to be a liar.
Ruxin: You don't need to whisper. We're at a law firm. Lying is encouraged here. Look, I'm not your guy for this. You need a low-level maintenance liar like Pete. "No, I've never been married before." "Yeah, I definitely own my own home." "No, this isn't a cold sore." I'm the guy who you come to when you're ready to perjure yourself to protect an Australian mining consortium.
Kevin: Ruxin, you are the best worst person I know.

Best Series on Television
9 January 2011 | by johncammiesSee all my reviews

The League is incredible, whereas most series's take a while to get into this is completely the opposite. This series has you laughing right from the start, you have an incredible cast of (to me anyway) unknown actors/comedians, the only member I was familiar with was Jon Lajoie. The show has so many great moments, it features a lot of clever musical comedy throughout both series' and it is full of shocking and hilarious antics as the main characters all battle, far too seriously, for their fantasy football league trophy. One of the best things about the show, for me, is that about half of it is completely improvised, this is something I really respect and it makes it much more original than the predictable 'Gary Unmarried's of this word. I also recently discovered the cast and the director all actually play in a fantasy football league of their own; just a little fun fact. Anyway, to summarise; The League is the funniest sitcom around at the moment and if you haven't watched it yet, you're missing out 10/10, a must see!
