Ted Lasso centers on an idealistic - and clueless - all-American football coach hired to manage an English football club - despite having no soccer coaching experience at all.

8.5/10 @ IMDb!

From a big football fan ehhhhhhhh! Not the best show don't even think this is better than BBC's The first team which was mediocre at best.

How many Ted Lasso episodes did you watch? I guess you can't really compare the shows. The First Team only has 6.1/10 @ IMDb and I don't find the trailer that funny.

Re: Ted Lasso [Comedy, Drama, Sport]

Just watch the 4th episode. I'm only making the comparison as their both football comedy  shows. Like by all means First Team wasn't a great comedy but its made me laugh more then Ted Lasso, but maybe that because I'm British.

EDIT: Just watched the trailer on IMDB, really doesn't give the show the justice to be honest. And the more I think about feel like Ted Lasso is bit of a rip off, but I'll be nice and say its a good pastiche.

Yeah, it felt a little cheesy in parts but the "feel good" part kind of made it easier to get past that stuff.

Re: Ted Lasso [Comedy, Drama, Sport]

Great show, definitely want more.

Jason Sudekis won the Golden Globe for best actor in a comedy for Ted Lasso.  Hard to believe this show even made the radar, let alone, won an award.  Very happy for him though, he's so funny in everything he does.

Re: Ted Lasso [Comedy, Drama, Sport]

So far season 2 of Ted Lasso has been fun but predictable, Roy Kent's frank exchange commentating was hilarious and yelling at the soccer girls, also very funny.  The trailer kinda ruined all the good jokes in the first 2 episodes so I'm looking forward to what's next.

lol

Ted:  Back home, if a team was playing poorly, we don't call them unlucky, what do we call them, coach?
Coach:  New York Jets.
Ted:  That's right.

Not really laugh-out-loud funny but kind of keeping my attention so far.

Sudeikas chipper and upbeat persona clashing with the miserable, hostile, cruel, cynical English race.

A deadset spunk albeit, from certain angles, and under certain lights, in a slightly X vs Y chromosome blurry way.

Not sure if that's tongue in cheek or not, but we are not all like that.  But I am.  smile

2020.  Meh.

Love this show.  Bill Lawrence is hilarious, I instantly miss Scrubs when I say his name.
