We never have gotten to see the league members in their unnatural environment: their jobs. Sure, in Season 1, we saw Kevin and Ruxin negotiate a plea bargain and a trade of the No. 1 overall pick, but we never saw them in court. Pete’s been in an office, but we’ve never seen him working.…… Continue reading The League S02E09: Never Use Your Friend as an “Expert Witness”
You get no love for being a league commissioner. It’s a thankless job, but the good ones have the respect of their league even when they aren’t in agreement. And the very best ones have dirt on every member of the league. That comes in handy when there’s drama, when league members turn into assholes…or…… Continue reading The League S02E08: “The Tie” is No Way to Retire as League Commissioner

Get excited. This episode…… Continue reading The League S02E07: Watch out for the “Ghost Monkey” this Halloween!
Ruxin seems to be a glutton for punishment this season, and this episode continued that trend as Taco tortured Ruxin by tricking him into throwing an anniversary party for his wife. But is Taco really that evil and smart? There’s no way to tell if he is just a completely oblivious of his actions or…… Continue reading The League S02E06: Old Dude Causes a #Hardfall at “The Anniversary Party”
NOTARIZER! This fifth episode of Season 2 was one of the funniest yet. Pete’s back to plotting against Andre as Andre vainly tries to prove his superiority to the league, Kevin’s having issues at home with Jenny, Ruxin’s taking on “charity terrorism” like only the most sinister office dweller could, and Taco’s off on a…… Continue reading The League S02E05: This ain’t no sprint. It’s “The Marathon”
Rafi’s back and so is the hate! Oh, sweet, intolerant hate! I know I said I liked Rafi. I know I said we could use some more of him, but I swear that it was a moment of weakness. This week, he proved why we should all dislike him…and cherish him, just for one last…… Continue reading The League S02E04: “The Kluneberg” cannot be unseen
Episode 3 gets back to the heart of Ruxin’s dark heart and the trash-talk that makes this league tick. They even threw in a little love interest to remind us of the Shiva competition from last season. Who’s balls will she touch first? Let’s dive right in. Episode 3 opens with Pete and Ruxin watching…… Continue reading The League S02E03: What a Beautiful Package for “The White Knuckler”
What goes up must come down. That’s a law of marriage. In this week’s episode of “The League,” titled “Bro-Lo El Cuñado,” the married gents try to score points with the wives while Rafi begins to run amok throughout the league’s inner circle. Lots of vomit in this one so let’s get started with two…… Continue reading The League S02E02: Rafi Vom. That’s a shot, right, “Bro-Lo El Cuñado”?

This recap for Episode 1 ran a bit behind because…… Continue reading The League S02E01: What Happens in “Vegas Draft”
