I love this show, Ive always wondered how a non-NFL fan would take to it though. It definitely has an IASIP vibe to it, one that gets stronger as the series goes on, some of the things they get up are utterly insane but fantastic all the same. :wub:

I know literally nothing about the NFL and the references fly way over my head, but thankfully the storylines and jokes for the most part don't seem to rely on specific knowledge! The cast could probably carry the banter even without the fantasy football backdrop, I think the main thing is that it gives context to some of their more absurd antics Image

Thats true, the fact theyre all playing a fantasy football league is just the reason they all interact, very few of the jokes are based on your knowledge of the NFL, every now and again they will sneak one in there though.

I really enjoyed the first 3 seasons and I have no interest in NFL at all. Obviously I had no idea who the player cameos were but that didn't affect the humour in the scenes. Season 4 was a bit too hit and miss for me though. Too much craziness.

It did go completely off the wall is S4 but it managed to just about hold it all together. I think the show got crazier so Rafi stands out less now, when he was first introduced he was the source of all the madness, now hes just another lunatic in the asylum.

Great show. Blitzed through season 4 as soon as it was available on Netflix.

FX seem to get stuff on the UK Netflix pretty damn quick, I'll wait for that.

Watched it all over the weekend, not as good as previous seasons but there were some great moments.

The choir at the very end. :lol:

Started watching this last week based on this thread. I'm somewhere in series 2 at the moment. The one where Taco becomes a notary was strawberry floating hilarious. Great show.

Hit the end of season 3 yesterday. I thought Ruxin's stroke was a bit close to the bone. But all in a great season.

Season 6 is up on Netflix, they push it even further into black humour territory. Not the highs of previous seasons but some enjoyable moments none the less. And theres another Rafi and Dirty Randy episode. :D
