This just started airing on Apple TV+. Yeah, I know. Yet another streaming service you have to subscribe to in order to get their content. If that's you're vibe, then move away from this post. For others who either have Apple TV+ or are open to subscribing, this series is a gem. Co-created by Bill Lawrence (SPIN CITY, SCRUBS, COUGAR TOWN) it's a fantastic half-hour dramady featuring Jason Sudeikis as an American college football coach hired to coach a British Premiere League Soccer team. You need not know anything about American football nor soccer at all to enjoy it. It's hilarious and has a ton of heart. It's not mean spirited at all. Quite the opposite. Ted Lasso is an eternal optimist that looks to win over even the most skeptical in his orbit.
Warm. Funny. Sentimental in all the right places. It's a gem. Highly recommended.
This series is easily in contention for the very short Good Things of 2020 list. I really hope we get S2...it did end nicely if not, but I want more. Just brilliant...not a single snoozer episode, brilliantly cast, and great character dynamics. I actually can't love this series more. I told the GF if WB/ATV+ were smart, they'd market Richmond Greyhoud gear...I'd buy a kit and a pint glass in a freaking heartbeat.
Seriously, though, from all accounts this is one of Apple TV+ breakout hits. I can't imagine that it doesn't get a second season. And if they're stupid enough to pass on it? It's a WB series, so HBO Max is waiting in the wings.
