DVD Review - The League Complete Season 2
Fantasy football provides an outlet for good-natured competition and camaraderie between friends and colleagues, but that’s not always the case. Deception, one-upmanship, and win-at-all-costs mentality rule the day on the virtual gridiron and then extend into personal relationships, marriages and the workplace, in THE LEAGUE: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON, arriving October 4 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
Discover all 13 episodes and never-before-seen exclusive extras on THE LEAGUE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON Blu-ray and DVD including unrated extended episodes, deleted scenes, a gag reel, special featurettes, and more. The ARP for Blu-ray is $24.99 and DVD is $19.99 respectively.
THE LEAGUE features an ensemble cast of rising actors and comedians. Mark Duplass (Humpday) plays PETE, the perennial league champ who is struggling to become an adult. Stephen Rannazzisi (Paul Blart: Mall Cop) is KEVIN, a happily married father and commissioner of the league. Nick Kroll (Get Him to the Greek) plays RUXIN, who believes he is the smartest of the group but can't figure out why he can't seem to win the league championship. ANDRE, played by Paul Scheer (Human Giant), has continued to be the punching bag of the group since their high school days – a fact that hasn’t changed despite the fact he is now a successful plastic surgeon. Jon Lajoie is TACO, Kevin’s little brother, a part-time musician and full-time stoner with little interest in fantasy other than hanging with his buddies (whom he struggles to remember). Katie Aselton (The Freebie) plays JENNY, Kevin’s wife and also his not-so-secret better half in the fantasy league. Nadine Velazquez (My Name Is Earl) plays Ruxin’s wife SOFIA, whom he is completely infatuated with ... and afraid of.
THE LEAGUE was created by the husband-and-wife team of Jeff Schaffer (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld) and Jackie Marcus Schaffer (Disturbia, Eurotrip) who serve as executive producers and directors. The series is produced by FX Productions.
My Take on the DVD
This is the type of series that will make you laugh! Whether it is the true belly laugh that you just love to experience or the chuckles from inane antics of the characters in the show, every episode will have you coming back for more in the end. What I like about the show itself is that each episode can stand alone, you are not to have been required to have watched all of season one to understand what is happening in season two or even to watch season three at this point, you can simply pick up this DVD and watch all and just enjoy! For me, it is the characters that make this show memorable and this season's episodes were just amazing! You will think so two when you get the chance to watch this too!
