Another solid episode of The League last night; we even got a guest appearance by Kristin Cavallari and her little “cutlet”. They weren’t in the episode for very long, but long enough for Kevin to try and get her to have Jay Cutler call him, and long enough for Jenny to steal Kristin’s breast milk. Why steal breast milk you ask? Well, when your mother-in-law is in town (played by Julia Duffy) and is constantly making you take “breastalyzer” tests to make sure you’re not feeding your baby alchohol, the only way to get clean breast milk and still drink is to steal someone else’s.

Not much going on with Pete or Andre this week. They were both in the episode, but the storylines mainly focused on Jenny and Kevin, Taco and George, and Ruxin and Rafi. Taco realizes that he’s in a relationship when he explains to everyone that his roommate George (which is a girl) and him live together and have sex. This storyline was just ‘ok’ for me, but I did like when Kevin/Taco’s mom was trying to explain to Jenny how Taco turned out alright, as he can’t figure out how to unlock the front door to leave the house, at which point he drops his sandwich on the ground. It was a bit slapstick-ish at times, but still funny to watch Taco struggle with everyday nuances like opening doors.

The Ruxin/Rafi segments were probably my favorite this week, but Rafi always adds to any scene he’s in. Ruxin doesn’t want to take baby Jeffrey to swim class on Sundays because there are football games on, so instead, he sends Rafi in his place. Things take a weird turn when Rafi starts sleeping with the swimming instructor and subsequently brings her to Taco’s couples party, where Ruxin and his wife are also at. My favorite part of that storyline was when Rafi finds Jenny’s breast pump in the bedroom and thinks it’s a fancy jerk-off machine and has sex with it. He then leaves his jar of semen on the table which Kevin/Taco’s mom picks up and tastes. It was a little low-brow, but I’m not watching The League for high-brow humor. I loved every minute of this weeks episode and it still continues to be my favorite comedy on TV.

    I really enjoyed this episode; the appearance of Kristen
    Cavallari was great! But I agree the swimming lessons portion was the
    highlight. It was obviously a bad idea to send Ravi
    in the first place, but he made the scenes hilarious. I am so glad that my
    coworker at DISH recommended this show to me a couple months ago. The episodes
    are always amazing, and I have been watching this season with the help of my
    Hopper from DISH. With my busy schedule, I have been putting the 2,000 hours of
    recording space to use with all of my shows. I love spending my weekends as a
    couch potato, catching up with everything I missed. This show works so well
    because it has a great ensemble, I can’t wait to see what situations they get
    into this week.
