The gang visit Las Vegas for Andre's (Paul Sheer) wedding as Season 5 kicks off. Meanwhile, Ruxin (Nick Kroll) refuses his Sacko punishments. Later, Kevin (Stephen Rannazzisi) and Jenny (Katie Aselton) run into Jay and Kristin Cutler at their preschool, Taco (Jon Lajoie) opens a unique petting zoo, and Rafi (Jason Mantzoukas) avenges the death of a murdered friend. Snoop Dogg and J.J. Watt also make appearances in the fifth season, while Mark Duplass returns as Pete.

Now in its fifth season, I'm not sure that FXX's The League can surprise me any more in terms of plot, but the witty one-liners have always been where this series is at, anyway.
It's a hit among the obsessive sports/fantasy league fans and a hit to the opposite crowd: people like me who have fallen asleep during football games and picked a fantasy team based on how attractive the players are.
The best part of the premiere is that Ruxin, who earned the Sacko last year for finishing last, does not want to go along with the Sacko punishments, so he temporarily joins Rafi's Domination League.
It's still a very funny show at times and the premiere tonight produced one of my biggest laughs of the year but the extreme nature of the joke writing starts to wear thin after awhile.
Plenty of jokes do land... and the cool guest stars should keep fans entertained. It's just not as rude as I remember.
