Favorite Ted quote this week: “I love meeting people’s moms. It’s like reading an instruction manual as to why they’re nuts.”

After two of the best-themed TV episodes ever created, TED LASSO quickly returns to moving the plot forward. Gone are the “rom-communism” and Christmas references as we get back onto the field to watch the most soccer this series has shown yet.

While I’ve loved season two of LASSO, I’ve questioned what story the series wants to tell. Every single character is likable, making it difficult to have a clear villain. After this week’s cliffhanger, I believe audiences will now know where it’s headed, but since this is a SpoilerFreeReview 🤐.

I continue to enjoy TED LASSO weekly and get kicked in the feels watching this hit series, but I keep questioning – why? It doesn’t necessarily do anything that audiences haven’t seen before. Instead, I’ve realized two things:
We all should be more like Ted. No, we don’t have to have terrific puns and obscure references, but that overall instinct to do good and inspire others (even your enemy) is a universal theme we can all learn.
We get by with a little help from our friends. From Rebecca’s mom visiting drama (anyone else catch that her mom took the tea that had more in it 😤), Diamond Dogs dismounting, Higgins hugging Beard (“You’re a great man, does Jane make you greater?), and more – this show is about friendship. In a world that’s even more divided than ever (thank you politics and COVID), there’s one thing we all can agree on – the power of friendship is forever.
The latest episode is available to brighten your day on Apple TV+.
