Thursday, September 16, 2010: The League

Thursday, September 16, 2010: <i>The League</i>

Warning: this episode of The League is very heavy on the football references. I mean, the show is usually pretty sports-heavy, since it's ostensibly about a fantasy football league, but seeing as the season premiere has the entire League going to Las Vegas to hang out with Chad Ochocinco and make their draft picks for the season, it's a lot more key to know something about football for this episode. (Or at least to be able to tolerate discussion of it for longer than usual.) It's kind of like The Guild in that sense, but for a completely different subsection of geek. Does that make Chad Ochocinco the Wil Wheaton of sports?

The good news is that new champion Andre continues to be the butt of everyone's jokes, and even gets a new derogatory nickname in this episode after he makes some major changes to the Shiva Trophy. And Kevin's wife Jenny wants out of their partnership so she can get her own spot in the league, without Kevin screwing up her advice all the time. Plus, there's a new method of determining who gets first draft pick that tries but ultimately fails to top the first season, in which they let it all ride on a kids' sack race. Still, there will be 15 episodes this season, instead of six, so they have more time to bring the funny this time around.

The League Season Two premieres tonight at 10:30 on FX, after the season premiere of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
