Definitely worth a go. It’s not crease-your-sides funny but definitely has its moments.
My girlfriend's been rabidly against watching it for this very reason. She loves things like Peep Show, Always Sunny and The Thick Of It...and absolutely hates shows like The Good Place and Brooklyn 99 for the forced 'wholesome' aspect.
So yeah, I don't think she'll ever watch it with me now. It's definitely not as sickeningly twee as The Good Place (which I know had a rabid fanbase) - but it is a bit emblematic of the recent era of 'smile, don't laugh' comedies.Everyone Ted Lasso has personally rained sunshine down on adores him.
There has been a deliberate movement towards wholesome comedy in recent years. [Ted Lasso is] not quite a finger in the face – too confrontational! – but at least a sternly worded letter addressed to Seinfeld’s famous “No Hugging, No Learning" mantra. Yes hugging. Yes learning. And then: hugging again.
The series scored a Peabody Award “for offering the perfect counter to the enduring prevalence of toxic masculinity … in a moment when the nation needs inspiring models of kindness."
It's Jason Sudeikis. He can carry this show on his own. Add a solid supporting cast and that's why it's a winner. Brendan Hunt, Nick Mohammed, Jeremy Swift and Brett Goldstein all brilliant.
Micah Richards, Roy Keane and Roy Kent travel to Wembley please.The 2nd episode was absolute class.
I really hope they can somehow get a small cameo of Micah Richards on the show (Lineker has a cameo later this season ICYMI), and that would take the show to a whole new level
Me too, taking all my will power. I binged season 1 in a day last week to tide me over. I’m not sure I’ll ever not tear up at ep 5.Was wondering why I saw this getting bumped so often. Glad to see s02 is out, but a no go until Oct when the last episode drops. Cannot watch in 1 episode a week.
I like the show, but the writing can be weak at times. That was a straight rip out of Joga Bonito commercial with Henry and Cantona.Yesterday's episode was so good. Think this show will go down as one of those shows that people will watch over and over again
I meant because the show is quite relaxing and just so positive, people will watch the show over again. Of course they go on some weird hyperboles and like yesterday where they did a Joga bonito, or in earlier instances like the set piece routine vs City and so onI like the show, but the writing can be weak at times. That was a straight rip out of Joga Bonito commercial with Henry and Cantona.
100% wrexham make appearance it the show.
