Really, I think season 2 is not that great.

The whole focus and feel of the series has been changed from Comedy about an American coach training a UK soccerclub to “Comedy”-drama trying to give deeper meaning to side characters while a soccer-club being the workplace/background - but it could easily have been anything else than a UK soccerclub. While I have seen and enjoyed every episode until now, I stoppede halfway during the last episode and don’t think I will return to the show. For me the magic of what was Ted Lasso has kind of worn off.

But, we are all different, happy that you like it. Hope you keep enjoying the show ?
So I just want to say in case you and anyone else didn't hear: Lots of people think the Christmas episode and the last one with Beard were a bit off the mark. But that is because the writers originally created a 10 episode arc like in Season 1. But then Apple gave them 2 more episodes because the show is so popular, but the writers didn't want to mess up the arc they had already completed.

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.

I’m liking Season 2, but is lacking a bit. Season 1 had “villains” that made the show more interesting than Season 2, where the villains are inner demons.

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.
