Reviews of the League:
In its astonishingly raunchy way, The League is pretty funny whether or not you’re a fantasy geek, assuming you’re a TV-MA kind of person. — The New York Times, Neil Genzlinger
The League comes close to the goal of creating a TV show with “The Hangover”-type appeal. — Variety, Brian Lowry
