    Anyone else watching this?

    Stars Jason Sudakis and is created and written by Sudakis and some co-writers including Bill Lawrence of Scrubs / Drew Carey Show fame.

    It's essentially Major League for soccer. Lasso is brought in by a vindictive ex-wife of the previous team owner of a Premier League team to drive the team into the ground. Lasso is a college American Football coach who has no experience with the game. He brings along an assistant coach who's familiar with the sport from his old college Wichita State.

    I've seem two episodes so far and it's pretty good. It's a bit cliche in the story line, but it's done well.

    Also Sudakis sounds a lot like Jim Brockmire, so I guess he's trying to use a Kansas accent (which I didn't think there was such a thing :) )

    Just saw Sudakis on Conan plugging it. I’ve has a free 1yr Apple+ subscription since my last hardware purchase 10 months ago, and this is the first Apple+ show that’s caught my interest (I do almost all my streaming on Hulu with a Roku)

    I'm in the same situation. Daughter bought an iPad so we got the free year. I watched The Morning Show which was decent, if not great. And I watched the Beastie Boys documentary which was really good (and I'm not a fan of them). I saw this advertised somewhere, and I thought it looked funny, so gave it a go. Half hour episodes, so they go quick.

    I really like it. And the ex-wife is played by the high sparrow nun who yelled "SHAME" at Cersei on GoT!

    Haven't gotten that far yet, but that should be interesting.

    DOH! I don't think that's a spoiler. Anyone?

    Fine with me. That's just an actress who's playing the character, and the character had been introduced (via phone) in E2.

    No, the actress being referenced is the co-lead with Jason Sudeikis. The woman who now owns the team because she got it in her divorce.

    We JUST binged this last week and loved it so much. To the point that we might consider holding onto our subscription after the trial ends, unless of course they keep extending the trial. We could always cancel, wait until it's back and then sign up again to binge too.

    Season 2 filming is underway, and has been extended by 2 episodes to a total of 12.
    Best guess is an August 2021 release date.

    That story adds a sad tidbit that TL will likely end with S03.

    Of course. Who didn't already know it's going to premier right after their free preview ends?

    It's better to go out on top than overstay your welcome like a lot of shows do.

    As long as it was planned that way ahead of time. It wouldn’t be so great if that was decided 2.5 seasons in or, worse, after the 3rd was done.

    My free year will be up by then. Guess I'll even have to pony up for a month or just let it go.

    This was known and was mentioned in the actual Ted Lasso show thread. :)

    Three is all Jason Sudeikis wants to do since he has to be away from his family, and it's also the story arc he had in mind.
