“Ted Lasso”: Film Review Podcast

Posted: May 18th, 2021 | Filed under: Film Reviews Podcast, TV | No Comments »

So, I’ve been wanting to watch this heralded Apple TV comedy series for awhile.

But, you know, how many streaming services does a guy need to subscribe to? Enough has always been more than enough.

But I needed a new phone, and the purchase of yet another Apple product — as if I didn’t have more than too many already — gave me a free year of their TV foray.

Now I know why all the fuss over “Ted Lasso,” the coulda/ woulda/ oughta been cloying and overbearing tale of an American football coach from the Heartland, transplanted to Merrie Ol’ to coach an EPL soccer outfit, facing relegation.

It’s just darned charming.

Not a sports fan? Don’t be deterred. The setting is but a vehicle for the storylines.

This is television for the times, when folks are craving something optimistic and sweet and empowering. And funny.
