Takin’ on a challenge is a lot like riding a horse. If you’re comfortable while you’re doin’ it, you’re probably doin’ it wrong.

Ted Lasso cleaned up as I predicted. Let the naysayers talk now! Lol. Ted Lasso will sweep the categories its nominated in. I predict Brett wins his category for supporting actor.

I’m just very disappointed that Emily in Paris and Cobra Kai got nominated over the outstanding Mythic Quest.
I don't know how Cobra Kai got nominated for anything. That show took a deep dive in quality after season one (which was just alright). I can't even watch it anymore.

That's it. Since I have a Apple TV+ account, I will binge-watch Ted Lasso over the next week or so.

I watched the first episode and didn’t find it funny. Is it just not for me or did I give up too soon?
After being in a similar situation - see my comment above - I think you gave up too soon. The show becomes quite powerful in my opinion.
