I can't get enough of Taco's ridiculous business ideas. At least this time he has plenty of inventory.

He also played the kinda douchy caveman on Cavemen

Ha.

Good episode last night.

Lots of hilarious moments. Andre as "The Transporter," Taco irresponsibly showing how to use a handgun, and the auto-correct spelling were all great.

The way the show weaves multiple story elements together can sometimes be on par with the skill level in how Seinfeld masterfully handled the process.

In case anyone missed the news, unsurprisingly The League got renewed for another season.

Based on the good ratings and number of big guest stars they had this year that's not really a surprise, but it's good to know.

The League continues to be one of our most successful comedy series both creatively and from a ratings standpoint, FX exec vp original programming Nick Grad said in a statement announcing the renewal. Jackie and Jeff Schaffer, along with our terrific cast, are doing wonderful work each week to make one of the funniest shows on television and we're excited to order another season.

Just watched pretty much the entire season on my DVR over the past week. LOVED IT. I want to subscribe to Neckflicks. I love how they insult each other's kids. Nothing is sacred.

It's one of the best comedies on tv. I think Season 2 was the best season so far. Season 3 was a little weak for me because they got away from football and the league for many of the episodes.

New 13-ep season begins Thursday October 11!

I can't wait to see how Taco's business is doing, what fresh new threads Andre will be sporting, and which corrupt companies Ruxin will be legally representing without shame.

I ignored this show partly because there's just too many half hour shows to keep up with, and mostly because a show about guys in a FFL is one I'll just wave at as it passes by. My mistake - after reading a review posted by dad, I recorded a few and couldn't stop laughing. I couldn't believe they actually ate the guinea pig, or that the sex stuff was beyond Episodes (and what a perfect guest shot for Sarah Silverman.)

How does this thread manage to be 3 pages in 3 years? This is a great show.

For the same reason you are only just getting to it.

I came to the show late too, because it received almost no publicity from FX when it first started, is ignored by the vast majority of the media and the premise is also antagonistic to those with no interest in FF and they don't know that it's actually closer to Sunny in Philadelphia and Entourage than it is a sports comedy.

Friendly reminder, tonight is the Season 4 premier! Should be nice to have both of them back-to-back. Can't wait to see Jenny played by Katie Aselton. She's smokin'

Even an "unfriendly" reminder would be appreciated. I'd hate to miss this show.

Yes yes yes yes. Time for Taco Thursdays again.

Great show and very excited it's back on. Should keep me laughing for the night

They overdid it with the guest stars this episode to the detriment of the funny (not enough Andre), but the ending was good. I guess they wanted to make a big celebrity splash in the opener.

An OK episode. Nice to see everybody back.
post #85 of 195
Enjoyed it. Didn't love it until the slapping-the-bean scene. Classic Jenny. And may god bless Chalupa Batman.
post #86 of 195
mostly just penis jokes -1
still very funny +2

Much better than last week. I really enjoyed Andre's hoodies, Pete's system and Ruxin as life commissioner.

"guys we need to remove the photo of Shiva."
"No way. Not without a council vote and we vote no."
"sorry Shiva I tried my hardest."

There's also a good deleted scene of Pete calling Jenny a fat mountain on the League Facebook page. I wish they would put them on YouTube.
post #87 of 195
This episode made me realize how low I would score on the dating test, -2.

A hiatus for Rafi, +1.

The super hot Shiva got a good amount of screen time, +2.
post #88 of 195
Lots of Shiva +1
Reminiscing about Jenny's bean +1
Half an Andre +1
Half a Chalupa -1
The pox on the league +5
Boring Pete getting bested by Taco +10

A couple of good jokes this week but in general I thought there were too many stories happening and all were fighting for attention. Might have been better if they had either concentrated on the paintball or the sushi. Although the paintball focus would have been compared to Community.

I did like the paintknife Willhelm scream and the callback to Taco's MyFace.
