Post Ted Lasso (Season 2)
An American football coach gets hired to manage an English futbol club.

The first three episodes have so far matched the very high quality of the first season. The most recent one was especially emotional. Sam is definitely the breakout character of S2 thus far.

Apple really struck gold with this one didn't they? It's the poster boy their streaming service needed to seperate itself from the mob.

I'm digging the second season so far. Season 1 was lovely.

Doing a Christmas episode in the middle of August was an odd choice. Not terrible, but I wouldn’t have expected this show to do a filler episode like this. A big time jump, but no real plot advancement outside of their new win-loss record.

I enjoyed the Christmas episode but it did feel out of place.

I fast forwarded through the ninth episode. Couldn't care less about any of the other coaches other than Roy and Ted, and I'm getting sick of these dramedy series always doing these bottle episodes that never move the plot forward in a particular way - it doesn't work more often than it does. In particular I despise Nathan this season, and Beard bores me.

The latest episode was actually fantastic. Loved it - it was probably the best episode of the series and I cried. Showcased the actors tremendously. Jason Sudeikis and Hannah Waddingham in particular, just wow.

Caught up on last 3. Episode 8 was fantastic, a nice bounceback from the mehish 7. I thought pairing Rebecca and Sam was gonna be a disaster, but they’re actually pretty adorable. 9 and 10 were a bit too arty/melodramatic for this show, but still quite good. Hoping for a very funny finale.

Uh, fuck Nate. Not sure why the show wanted us to hate him but they did a very good job of it lol.

Overall, I'd give this season like an 8. The Christmas episode and one other (ep 7 i think? where Nate is getting aroused by his twitter feed) were the low points of the show thus far. I also didn't love how they basically turned the show into a drama during the second half of the season with these 45+ minute episodes. Still, the writing and acting on the show were top of the line, and I'm very eager to see where season 3 goes now that they are back in the premiere league. It's one of the funniest shows on tv even if the episode lengths don't suggest it. :funny:

I liked this season. It's great in terms of writing and acting but the series lost they energy that made Season 1 great. It's still a very good season just not something that I would instantly recommend (like I did for season 1).

I really don't like how they basically made this an hourlong series. Every single episode feels overlong and has made this season drag.

Also I despise Nate. I hope he doesn't come back.

I do wonder if Nate, now part of the villain squad, will turn up every episode next year. With 45 minute episodes they could speed through his redemption angle in a few weeks. :funny:

I mean Ted instantly forgave Rebecca for Major Leaguing him. No way he stays mad at Nate. Beard might hold a grudge though.
