I've got Jewbs!
I loved Roy Kent with the Dawg Pound.. "It hurt my...feeling.."
Nate's explanation were words from someone too damaged for a Ted Lasso induced recovery. Feel good just isn't going to cut it.Nate's explanation seemed pretty weak. I guess Nate expected Ted to dote on him every day? Lame. I am guessing there will be redemption at some point next season unless they decide to continue beyond season 3 so they can have more storylines. Otherwise, I really enjoyed the episode/season.
That was due to the classic network butting in when they should leave well enough alone. Apple insisted on two additional episodes, so they created the Christmas and "Beard After Hours" standalone episodes. Although I admit, I did like the Christmas episode, but I'm a sucker for holiday shows lolI really enjoyed this season with the exception of the coach Beard(?) episode.
I agree... said that the day or two after it aired.... I'm about the most "Bah Humbug" type of guy around and I loved that episode. I also found the Coach Beard episode fun, for what it is. Obviously they did not fall in the story arcs, and once I heard the explanation for their being, it was all fine with me.I risked seeing spoilers (I am only about half way through the season), but I HAD to comment on the Christmas episode. I'm not even Christian and I LOVED that episode. Maybe the best Christmas episode I've ever seen on TV. My wife doesn't usually watch this with me and she loved it as well. EVERY story thread was great. This along with "Christmas in Canada" South Park episode will have to become a yearly watch during the holiday season. Loved all the rom-com references. Also, is Secret Santa not a thing in the UK? Some of them seemed surprised by the tradition.
Still, no way any journalist, especially Trent Crimm, The Independent, would burn a source, under any circumstance and no matter what the story is about. But they fixed it. The only possible way is that if Trent Crimm, The Independent, decided he wanted to blow up his career and never be a journalist again. There were other issues there that they showed the written, typeset, published story to Ted before getting a comment from him. But that I can say "that's TV".Also, it's an anxiety attack by a football coach, not the Pentagon Papers
I respectfully disagree. Like you said, the trend is comedy is the write shows that are dark and not really funny. Ted Lasso managed to have some really dark moments, yet maintain it's quirky funniness. Sure there were a couple of episodes where it was MUCH more dark than funny (the Coach Beard episode), but overall, this show, to me, still had an interesting mix of being really funny, and yet, do deep dives into these complex characters. A show where Ted Lasso is overly optimistic every episode and Roy curses constantly, would get very boring, very quickly. And there were plenty of feel good moments which kept up with the spirit of the show. But that's just me. And I'm one who generally hates this dark turn we've gone through with everything on TV, comedies AND dramas. Give me more Ted please!I am disapponted in this season.
What made Ted Lasso great was it was a feel good comedy that didn't bog us down with drama. Why all the dark personal arcs and network like personal relationships now?
Ted Lasso was a comedy about an team coming together in an unconventional way. What is it now? I know current trends are comedys that aren't really funny, but does this remotely seem like an "outstanding comedy series" anymore?
It's like they changed a hugely successful series after one season. It's not the same show. I know there are fans in the thread that would love the show just hearing Ted saying anything, but humor has become thin.
And why is Higgins who is the best background character on the show, seem to be the only one without an expanded role?
Soccer Saturday - WikipediaOne thing I wanted to ask about but was waiting for the season to be over. The panel show that they show every week (the one that Roy was on for a bit) is called something like "Soccer Today". Do they call it "soccer" at all in Britain? I thought it was strictly "football".
