Ted Lasso was a real surprise for me, I was familiar with the character but I had no idea how they would pull off an entire season of an American coach coming over to the UK to lead a Premier League (Prum-eer?) team.
Turns out they could pull it off and do it really well. As a football fan there were a few things that stuck out but nothing that detracts from the overall storytelling.
It's an Apple TV+ show, so you may struggle to watch it but if you have access I highly recommend it. Ted's positivity is infectious and something that's sorely lacking in the world which I'm sure is one of the reasons it's been received so well. Something that was actually discussed on this week's episode of The Talk Show.
Bill Lawrence had this to say about the feedback he's had:
Thank you all, sincerely. Even those of you that remain “shocked that it doesn’t suck”. That’s always my favorite. Still, I reserve the biggest “thanks” for the people I got to work with - it was such a gift for me. Starting with our leader @jasonsudeikis, @brendanhunting (BEARD)View on twitter
While Bill may be behind one of my favourite shows of all time, I didn't know he was behind this until after I'd seen the first episode and like I said, I had little confidence in this working but I'm so glad it did and it's great to know it was renewed for a second season.
