It has been a great week so far with a bunch of new trailers being released. I just posted about Shang-Chi yesterday, around the same time as Leos Carax’s musical ANNETTE that I’ll talk about in another week.
Well, thanks to my hubby who brought his laptop down for lunch as he wanted to watch Apple’s ‘Spring Loaded’ live event, Tim Cook also announced Ted Lasso‘s season 2 teaser, wahoo!!
If there’s one show I’m absolutely in love with this year, it’d be THIS ONE. I’m surprised by that myself as I’m not even into soccer or even sports-type movies/shows. I mean, I have seen a few I enjoy but I’m as clueless about sports as coach Ted is about soccer (or football for UK folks)! 😀
The series follows US American Football coach Ted Lasso heading to the UK to manage a struggling London football team in the top flight of English football.
Though it’s obviously centered around a sport, Ted Lasso is SO much more than just about football. It’s a series that celebrates goodness and wholesomeness. In fact, its tagline says ‘Kindness is making a comeback’ which is so spot on!! It’s sooo refreshing to see a series in 2021 that is so positive and not about being ‘accomplished’ or being at the top of the game. In fact, Ted takes something that’s inherently negative (being hired solely because he does NOT know anything about English football) and turn it around into something positive for everyone because he cares more about people than about winning.
I also adore the fact that it celebrates the underdog as well, not just the team but the people that get overlooked, i.e. Nate whom Ted notice as being quite the team expert that’s key in turning the team around.
I love every single cast member, but of course Jason Sudekis is the star and he’s absolutely wonderful in this role. I’ve only seen him in comedies but none really made a mark for me until this series. He fits the role so well and so believable as a glass-half-full kind of guy. There are also some dramatic moments on the show and Sudekis proved himself to be a versatile actor to tackle those believably as well.
The supporting cast are superb as well… hard to pick a favorite among them: Hannah Waddingham, Juno Temple, Jeremy Swift, Brett Goldstein, Phil Dunster, Toheeb Jimoh and of course James Lance as journalist Trent Crimm.
Ok so now you’ve got some time to catch up on this series before JULY 23 when season 2 premieres!!
Let’s celebrate with some of my favorite Ted Lasso gifs:
I couldn’t find the gif but this ‘be curious, not judgmental’ quote is definitely my favorite… lots of great life lessons from this show!

OK, now I need to watch the first season to catch up. This is something my dad would’ve loved since he is a fan of futbol. I can’t help but be soaked by the optimism of this show. Now I have to watch this first season.
Yayayayayay!!! Sorry I’d been so swamped all day to reply but your comment makes me happy!! 😀 Hope you enjoy this Steven, though I wish you could’ve watched this with your dad who’s a football fan. It’s good to be soaked in optimism and goodness any day, but especially during a pandemic and social unrest.
So excited for this. I don’t have Appte – but I was kitty sitting at a friends and thought sure why not.. Let’s just say I rarely watch more than 2 max 3 eps of a show at a time – I watched all 9 eps. in a row..I couldn’t stop. I didn’t want it to end so I saved the 10th eps. till the night before I was leaving.. hahahahahha I loved it so so much.
Hey there Peggy! Glad you took the opportunity to watch this while kitty sitting. I could totally see you binging ALL episodes in one sitting, I mean it’s only like a half hour long and it’s SO MUCH FUN!! I even enjoy the more dramatic moments, like when Ted broke down in that night club. You just feel so bad for him, and it finally melted Rebecca’s heart too!
I love this show! I’m so excited to have a release date for the second season.
I know!! I was jumping for joy when I saw the trailer during lunch, apparently Apple CEO Tim Cook is a huge fan of the show too!
Words can’t even express how much I love Ted Lasso. THIS is the show we all need during the pandemic. It brings so much positivity and joy and I just can’t wait to see where Season 2 takes the club. Never did I ever think I would love a show about football so much!
So happy to hear you’re a fan of Ted Lasso too! I think people find the positivity so refreshing as most shows relish on being so dark and violent these days. I’m really hoping they’d stick w/ this formula for season 2 + beyond!
I have yet to watch this show, hopefully I’ll get to it this summer. The only other original show I watch on Apple + is SEE and I haven’t finished it yet. The show kind of stumble halfway through the season and I kind of loss interest in it. But sounds like Ted Lasso is a real winner!
More Ted Lasso?? Yay!! 🙂
High five!! This show brings me so much joy and always improves my mood 🙂
