The League "The Von Nowzick Wedding" S5E2 - 9/11/13

I thought this episode was MUCH better. I knew that there was no way that wedding was going to happen. I loved how they raided the wrong room and how Ruxin set them up. Taco's little hankie was funny and you just knew that Andre was going to get caught.

Jenny in a bikini was a nice surprise

Taco is starting to make sense. Something must be wrong with me!

The only problem with this show is the seasons are too short.

About Taco...I agree!!! My mind must be getting fried or something.

I have a feeling nobody is going to bother starting a seperate thread every week, especially if they are all as bad as Ep3 was! yikes!

Well, I'm not much of a thread starter, but I disagree about #3. I thought it was great.

I'm with you. I thought Ep #3 was about the worst half hour of TV I've seen in a long time, and I LOVE The League. They should stick with the core group for this series. I know a lot of you find Raffi funny, but I find him obnoxious and dumb. Not funny at all. And Dirty Randy might have been even stupider. Is this just a cheap stunt to have Seth Rogen involved in the show? It reminded me of the few episodes of South Park where they veer away from the core characters and have a whole episode based on something else. Usually they aren't funny.

Is the actor who plays Ruxin busy and can't be in all episodes? Seems he hasn't been too involved this year.

I noticed that episode was written by Seth Rogen (what a surprise).

I like some of Seth's stuff, but this was just stupid. Raffi is a complete tool and extremely cringe worthy. I used to think that about Taco at the beginning, but they've made his character better. Not so with Raffi.

Just to clarify, the episode about Rafi and Dirty Randy was the 4th episode of the season. The 3rd one was with Jay Cutler and his wife.

And I agree that the Rafi one sucked.

But it was worth it now that he's dead, I think.

I liked Rafi but he can't carry a show. He was great in small doses but I disliked him trying to carry the whole episode. It didn't work for me at all.

Ruxin might be busy filming season 2 of Kroll show. I love Rafi, I'm surprised by all the hate.

I don't hate him, but I agree, the character works better as a quick hit support role, extended scenes make his schtick annoying.

I guess I'll put it in spoilers since this technically isn't the thread for it. But the reason I thought it was great was...

Spoiler:
Pocket hot dogs
The whole Batman documentary discussion
Take care of the car - "I hope that's not what you did to my cat when I asked you to take care of it"
The arguing and just shooting the guns to accentuate their point
The total disconnects on "Are you thinking what I'm thinking"
Giving up the idea of avenging their friends death in about 10 seconds
The duel going down the stairs an neither waiting for the 10 count


And there's probably a lot more that I can't even remember. Really it was little more than a bunch of small Rafi bits all strung together in one episode.

Oh well, worked for me.
