If Stranger Things is considered Netflix’s flagship series, then Ted Lasso holds the same title for Apple TV+. The show, starring Jason Sudeikis as the American football coach for a struggling English soccer team, quickly gained a cult following and critical acclaim after its debut.
In the third season, Lasso faces new challenges as the Richmond soccer club is in dire straits. Despite the addition of a world-class player, they continue to struggle. Meanwhile, the relationship between club owner Rebecca and Keeley grows closer.
Ted Lasso was nominated for 20 Emmys in its first season and 11 in the second. Sudeikis shines as the endlessly optimistic and enthusiastic coach. The show’s mix of humor and seriousness is credited to showrunner Bill Lawrence, who previously found success with Scrubs in the early 2000s.
What sets Ted Lasso apart is its ability to address serious issues while maintaining a lighthearted approach. The show’s third season features episodes ranging from 44-50 minutes, with plenty of gags, goals, and dirty tricks from the changing room.
Overall, Ted Lasso continues to inspire and entertain with its uniquely charming and heartwarming story. The show is suited for ages 12 and up and is a must-watch for fans of comedy-drama series.
