Who is “Ted Lasso?”

Ted Lasso is about an American football coach that is hired to coach a soccer team in England, despite having a total lack of experience with the sport. While there, Ted begins to gain deep connection with his team’s players, his boss, his assistant coaches and even himself. 


Why Isn’t Everyone Watching It?

Most people probably have no idea what someone is talking about when they reference the tv series “Ted Lasso.” One reason is that it is an original on Apple TV. It is not on more popular streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, or HBO Max. Another reason is that it doesn’t seem like the kind of show people would be interested in. Another reason is that these days, most people want to watch movies like “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” and tv shows like “Squid Game” because of the action and thrilling moments. “Ted Lasso” is a show where you have to pay attention to the dialogue and story in order to understand the gist of the series. 


Why It’s Worth Watching:

“Ted Lasso” is worth watching because it is a beautifully put together show with a heartfelt story, top-notch acting and razor sharp writing. The premise is basically a romantic comedy in the confines of a soccer tv show and in a lot of ways does the same thing “Jerry Maguire” did with football. If you’re a big fan of soccer or romantic comedies, this will probably be your type of show. It may not be as exciting or action-packed as everything from Marvel or DC, but it’s still a show worth watching and your experience will be guaranteed to be enjoyable.
