Yup, the last few episodes were golden. Stories that center around Taco or Andre never fail to bring the laughs.

One of the best of this season. Rubin in the chair was great, the phone sex with cyber-Ruxin was funny and they even had a testicular hubris callback.

"Hot towel?"

Great episode. However, when they showed the shot of the lineups on the cellphone it had AJ Green in a RB slot.

That was a strong finale to a strong season. I love Lizzy Caplan (Ruxin's sister), and her role further verifies that this show has brilliant casting directors.

I watched the entire series over the last few weeks. I don't know why I wasn't watching this all along. Great show. Has it been announced if there will be a season six?

So, I didn't catch the two part finale. Who won the league and who won the Sacko?

You would think the finale and all the episodes would be rerun constantly on FXX given that it's one of FX's highest rated shows. But no, FXX is just filled with Spin City, Mad About You and The Hughleys.

FXX makes no sense for the viewers. The best shows on the network are rarely on! Totally Biased got cancelled now there is even less original content on the network.

I completely agree. I often wonder what the hell it is that I'm missing with the logic behind FXX. There has to be something that I don't understand, as the people operating it have to be smarter than me about this stuff.

It's just more slots to sell to advertisers. FXX is just full of cheap reruns right now so it doesn't cost that much to fill the schedule.

That and extra carriage fees by cable providers to carry the extra network.

I agree. This is not just a The League on FXX thing as same thing happened on FX. They almost never aired repeats. In fact, for last season's finale, my DVR cut off right before the ending and I could never find it being replayed! Some sort of business decision (DVD sales?) or perhaps contractual obligation (netflix or others have rights?) as it doesn't seem to make sense not airing it more often.

The League is back next week! Season opener is Wednesday, September 03, 2014.

I am a bit disappointed that there isn't any new Sunny episodes though. From what I recall, season 10 will be in January 2015

Man, I can't believe they are going to interrupt The Simpsons Network to show The League! It's weird that they are going to show some original programming. Did someone forget to cancel The League like they've done with almost everything else?

I haven't been impressed with this season so far but tonight was okay. The height supremacy stuff was funny and I thought Adolf Heightner was inspired. The Facetime stuff was okay too but the joke is old now.

I was enjoying TeflonDre but I would have preferred it if they had kept the gag running and the reason for Andre's sudden coolness had been something funnier.

I'm the opposite, I thought all three episodes so far have completely killed it. Many laugh out loud moments.

If anyone hasn't watched this week yet allow me to save you some time. Rafi survived being shot last year.

Now you don't have to watch another spectacularly unfunny waste of an episode about Rafi and Randy.

Since the show got the two season renewal it seems to be a convenient reason for the regulars to take a week off now.

That was quite possibly the worst bit of television that I have seen in a long, long time. It was as if they were deliberately trying to make it the most awful viewing experience possible, but Seth Rogen's involvement in the writing partly explains why it was so terrible.

This week's episode was the funniest of the season so far.

Yeah definitely the best this season. Felt like an old school episode in which all the separate stories collided at the end.

Nadine Valasquez has not been on the show that often recently but she made a great comeback this episode.

That was indeed excellent. Even Rafi made me laugh a little.

As for the incident with Sofia, that is simply the natural response for 9 out of every 10 straight men, regardless of what kind of pants they are wearing.

So I guess Nick Kroll doesn't want to be in the show now? Absent this week, literally phoning it in previous weeks and appears to be missing next episode too.

If the show can't get the main cast together each week they should wrap it up next season.

Maybe he had something going on? He was with the cast at NY Comic Con this week.

Perhaps he was busy doing another awful season of the "Kroll Show."

I think Ruxin and his wisecracks is a great aspect of the show, but character hiatus' like this actually work in my view. It allows key elements of a long-running series to more slowly reach the point of becoming stale.

Good episode. I was wondering when they were going to address the Redskins issue, and it was done in a way that pretty much only a Seinfeld writer could do it. Corbin Bernsen is yet another natural fit for a guest role on this show.
