I've only watched what's on Netflix, but the characters pretty closely mirror my group of friends. Apparently I'm the Ruxin of the group

Here's a story about it. Looks like the taping was a couple of weeks prior to TC starting.

Watched the first two episodes so far - season 1, ep 1 and 2.

So far, it's a mixed reaction.

It's funny, cheeky, and has foot planted firmly in cheek. I also like the actors and the characters are sharply drawn and well written.

What I didn't expect is that a good deal of the hilarity is crass, juvenile, potentially degrading to women, and so overtly sexual in nature.

I know for a fact that both my ex-wife and GF would not find this humorous at all and both would very likely find it insulting.

Definitely enough to keep watching so far - but I hope they dial down the sexual humor a bit and try to find more funny dialogue with the fantasy football stuff, or just daily life stuff. If not, I might lose interest. Potty humor and sexual humor can be funny in small doses, but a little goes a long way for me.

The good news is, I'm a man and some of it is funny - although slightly uncomfortable at times.

My rating so far (based on the number of players on a NFL roster) is 38.

It's pretty heavy on the empty, "gross" humor.

I dunno, I think Jenny is as strong a female character as it gets. But yeah, the humor is often of the high school variety.

The thing that disappoints me most about it is after the first season it's less about Fantasy and that's more of a background plot. I liked the focus in the first season.

I watched about 30 seconds of the first episode because it had J.J. Watt in it. I realized I wasn't going to like the humor and decided to turn it off instead.
