So they wrote the Christmas episode and the Beard episode as two standalone stories that don't really touch the plot in the other 10 which are considered the main storyline. I personally think the Beard episode was OK as an experiment, but it should have been in the first half of the season like the Christmas one and not Episode 9 of 12 because it just killed the momentum of the plot that was building.
Anyway, my point is, kill off the two standalone episodes and I think the 10 episode main story is still pretty decent this year.
Anyway, a fantastic show. I don’t watch or stream many shows at all (several each year), but Ted Lasso is definitely one worth watching.
Can’t wait for Foundation.
