Ted Lasso


It was February. Nothing much was on TV. And I was kind of feeling miserable (female troubles). This is when I stumbled across Ted Lasso

I found a couple Twitter threads praising it. And I needed something to watch. So, I tried it...

There are many TV shows that I enjoy. I watch them, I talk about them, and I recommend them. But I wouldn't rewatch them. I will rewatch Ted Lasso

It's a simple premise. (If you remember the movie Major League, you've already gotten the idea.) Divorcee gets sports team in divorce. To hurt the ex, she decides to tank the team. 

But, she makes one major mistake. While Ted Lasso knows nothing about soccer, he is an excellent coach. 

The thing about the show, though, is it's very, very nice. Ted Lasso is just a nice guy. Kind. Caring. Basically the antithesis of what you'd expect a pro coach to be. And he plays to the nice even while those around him aren't so nice. 

It's a great show. Now, I know no one has Apple +. This is the show you subscribe for. (Wait until July, though. Season 2 comes out near the end of July.)

Here's the trailer for season 1: 

And I can barely contain myself waiting for season 2:

  1. Wow, that actually sounds like a sports show I'd watch. Too bad it's on Apple+ though. Maybe they'll eventually put it on Amazon or something.

  2. No Apple+ here either, but knowing me I'd never get around to watching anyway.

  3. I don't subscribe to additional services as I already don't take advantage of what I have (i.e. free Peacock and Amazon Prime). Alas, there is such a wealth of TV out there; no one would have enough hours in the day. (And then I'd have no time to blog.)

    1. There is. Too many services, so little time.

  6. Not one I've heard of. No Apple+. Glad you found something to watch. I was watching an old show on Hulu, and partially through the series they cut me off and wanted some extra money subscription! No way! I feel like they gave me just enough to get me hooked and thought I'd pay more. I didn't like it that much!

    1. Boo! That sucks. There are few shows that I would continue on for that. I wonder how often that works with other people, though.

  7. I just finished Mythic Quest. Ted Lasso is next up on my watchlist. I'm really looking forward to it.

    1. I think you'd enjoy it. But yeah, Apple + is the stumbling block for many.

  9. I am not one for sports shows but I would like to see this one. I remember see the advertisement for this and now seeing your trailers here, I really wish I could see it.

  10. Sounds like I'll like this. But I doubt if it's available in this part of the globe.
