Ted Lasso

Ted Lasso is a show on Apple TV+. It’s quite a good show, but don’t take my word for it. This twitter thread sums it up perfectly:

I’ve been trying to find the words to describe Ted Lasso, but everything that comes to mind sounds almost hyperbolic, or silly.

I keep coming back to the feeling that this show is just special. Actually truly unique.

If you’re gonna watch TV, it might be healthiest thing on it.

In part the show’s version of a “set up to fail” underdog-y story.

But I think it’s mostly a rare & refreshing version of a protagonist, after a slew of antagonistic anti-heros that are hard to root for.

And rarer still, it also never relies on awkwardness to try to be funny.

And I’d go as far as to say that somehow, what hit me the most, is that watching @TedLasso makes me want to be a better person.

It’s a reminder that we can be & behave differently. That we don’t have to get infected by everyone’s cynicism and rivalry.

My highest recommendation!
