The show has sought to soften the blatant grossness of the trophy over the seasons—by reintroducing Shiva, now a sexy, successful doctor; by briefly changing the name of the trophy to “the Andre”—but it’s never backed down from it.
Shiva the person, played engagingly by Janina Gavankar, under-reacted when she found out that the trophy bore her image in Season 1; she’s returned periodically since then so that the show can absolve itself of wrongdoing by reminding us that she hasn’t been scarred at all by the leagues’ stalkerish bullying.
Particularly excellent are Nick Kroll as Ruxin, the amoral corporate litigator whose occasional childlike grins and impromptu song-and-dance numbers warm the heart; Paul Scheer as Andre, a sweet, dorky, fad-following plastic surgeon who’s the perpetual butt of the group’s jokes; and the wonderfully rubber-faced Stephen Rannazzisi as Kevin, the husband and father who’s the heart of the show, mostly because he is the only member of the league with any semblance of a moral compass.
The congeniality of the cast leads to frequent moments of cognitive dissonance when you step back and realize how horrible their characters are.
When I was first dating my current lady, I threw on some Flight of the Conchords and was all, “Isn’t this hilarious??
Hahaha, let’s make out.” It worked and I’m forever grateful.
So it’s not like I’m some uptight snob that doesn’t enjoy a hilarious, immature song.

Jon Lajoie here, you may recognize me as Taco from The League, from my youtube videos (youtube.com/jonlajoie) or thanks to my Kickstarter (jonlajoie.com/kickstarter), as one of the wealthiest people on the planet.
, I still understand only very vaguely how fantasy football works, but I have learned that wealthy, straight, white men really like football, sex, beer, and avoiding taking responsibility for their actions. ) is (mostly) redeemed by the fact that its boorish, despicable main characters are played by exceedingly appealing, very funny actors.The comedy team Garfunkel and Oates is composed of two actresses (Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhorne) who have taken to writing comedic songs. Some call them “The female Flight of the Conchords.” Really? These two aren’t CLOSE to being as funny and original as Jemaine and Bret.The two have been garnering tons of buzz, gathering a legion of fans, and recently scored their own HBO show. The love they are getting is totally baffling to me. I grew up wearing out my parents’ old Tom Lehrer LPs and listening to Monty Python songs on cassette tape.I know you’re all curious about my speed dating results. I was hoping for a 20/20 score and hot girls calling me in the middle of the night and yelling “Take me now! ” accompanied by an endless stream of sexts on my mobile phone. So I thought about the only thing I could do in this situation. Last week I ran four personal best times (5K, 6.5K, 8K and 10K runs). I kept telling myself “run like you mean it”, “run with purpose” and “I can, I can, I can”. Well, I made 4 matches out of 20 but it’s not as good as it sounds because they were all “friendship” matches. I decided to take the advice of a self-made self-help guru who’s transformed the lives of millions of people.
