What I love about Ted Lasso is just how absolutely wholesome it is. Every single character is so well developed. It alone is worth having Apple TV+, even though I also adore Mythic Quest.

It’s usually the same little niche though.
If by same little niche, you mean, “near universal praise from everyone who watched the series, across Twitter, MR forums, Facebook, critics, and social media,” then yes, you are correct.

Ted Lasso is having a national moment right now. And well deserved.

I enjoyed it.

Still think Schitt's Creek was better though.
Life's a little brighter with both Schitt's Creek and Ted Lasso in this world.
