Ted Lasso (Apple+)

Recommended Posts

It’s basically the plot of major league but with soccer, based off a parody commercial, and though it shouldn’t work it’s a brilliant show. Highly recommended if anybody else shells out for apple+

Loved the long-form commercials they did a few years ago and Sudeikis is pretty funny. I have free Apple TV for a bit with new iPhong purchase. Will check it out.

Not too bad so far. Although, I don't know if it's worth keeping Apple TV for. I thought all the episodes had already dropped so I signed up for a free Apple trial last night. I watched the first three episodes, but I'm going to end my subscription at the end of the trial. Maybe I'll pick it back up after all the episodes have posted.

Also, the Apple TV site is shit. Maybe there's an app that makes the interface better, but it was awful trying to watch it on my PC through Chrome.

 Of all the ways to watch Apple TV+, I'm pretty sure on a PC through Chrome is the one Apple is least concerned with.

The septa from Game of Thrones is the club owner. I get a kick out of that.

Watched Sudekis on Seth Meyers last night. It was just supposed to be a one time thing, but NBC asked him to do more. Sudekis said he couldn't believe how popular the character was until foreign celebrities started coming up to him saying how much they loved it.

This show and Teenage Bounty Hunters both have ridiculous premises that shouldn’t work. It’s hard to pull off.  Both kill it. 
 

Sudeikis is so awesome as the earnest salt-of-earth semi-hip coach. It’s a really well written character.

This has been well worth watching. Sudeikis and Hunt have really balanced each other out at this point. However, this one episode a week crap is a pain. I’m too used to watching everything on my schedule.

I saw the ad for this and was surprised they were able to create a show around the concept. I was going to get an apple TV trial for dickinson so maybe I can kill 2 birds with one stone. Does anyone watch on an android? Is it just a mess or what?

We watched the first 4 episodes last night. Holy shit, that was funny. And just a well done show.  The GF is not a soccer fan and was skeptical, but even she was into it. The soccer part is very secondary.

We were all pissed that we have to wait a week for the next episode. 

Watching with captions helped. Some low talkers with thick British accents.

This is what I heard on The Kickaround on The Ticket. They loved the show and said soccer is not the reason to watch.

Best bet is to get an Apple TV, Rocku, or FireTV.

Soccer plays virtually no direct part in the show other than it is the sport they used to be able to have a team/coach concept. It’s definitely not meant for soccer fans specifically.

Taster’s Choice douche as the asshole former owner 😂 

(Yes, I know he had a good run on Buffy and several Brit shows, but he’ll always be the horny, shitty instant coffee drinker to me.)

Just watched the first 3 episodes and it's fantastic.  I am surprised at how much I like all of the characters especially the older soccer player that is a jerk but yet a good guy at the same time.  I also needed subtitles to help out but I am finding that helps on quite a few shows I am trying to watch from England (Luther being another one).

I just looked her up and apparently she's 45 years old. That's a rough looking 45.

I was going to offer a counter opinion, but yeah, I guess she does look more like a fifty-something than 45. A bit too toothy for my tastes (hey, she’s British) but she is in hella good shape. Seems like she could pick you up and throw you around a bit.

At first, I thought that woman is very attractive for a chick in her mid to late 50s. Then I googled and found out she's 45!

Made my wife start this with me.

Loved the original commercials and to this day still call Liverpool and ManU the Cowboys and also the Cowboys with my premiere league LFC fan buddy.

Told my wife when we started this, it’s gonna suck cause I don’t know how they are gonna turn 3 commercials into a series.

We both really like it and are pleasantly surprised with the whole show and cast

Yep. When he ran across the field (sorry, the pitch) to see his family had me rolling.

Love this show.  Some character parallels with Scrubs but maybe that’s just too much on my mind when watching.

Predicted season cliffhanger (I have zero knowledge of what happens, but shows need dramatic tension, so here goes, spoilered in case I’m right):

Spoiler

We all know Ted has worked hard to win over grumpy Roy, and he’s done so. There’s been increasing sexual tension/flirting between Roy and Keely. There’s also an odd, hint of “will Ted maybe fuck his toothy owner? That couldn’t happen, could it?” So everyone is getting sloshed, there’s Ted Lasso, the Owner, Keely and Roy, maybe it’s an end of season event where everyone has too much to drink. Cut to the next morning, sunlight penetrating thru the blinds, and there’s Ol’ Ted Lasso, hung over in bed with a female arm slung on top of him. Holy hell, he’s done it, he banged the boss! But the woman rolls over, and it’s... Keely! Ted has a “WTF?” look on his face, roll credits.

Was pretty shocked at this weeks ender with dual Aces.

Also the AI reference had me in tears almost immediately, to the point that when it ended I had to stop and show the wife the original. She loved AI even though she barely cared about the NBA so she thought it was greatness.

I’m hooked on this show and honestly the weekly drop feed format is killing me, especially when they post nexts weeks episode with “drops on 9/11”

Damn it. I was watching on Couchtuner and accidentally watched E6 first. I thought there was a lot of unexplained background for a pilot. Starting E1 now.

Just binged. Oklahoma. I love this show.

Still pretty amazed at how good the writers and cast have balanced the feels, humor, and the sappy moments. Also whoever is scoring the show is doing a fantastic job as well.

You got pretty close there.
