TED LASSO showcased the hallowed world of foreshadowing with humor, havoc, and hesitance. The witty comebacks were non-stop amid the angst of real emotional highs and lows. Sheer brilliance.
Zava (Maximilian Osinski)has come home to Richmond, but he is pushing everyone around him in ways they can’t understand yet. He is more than a button on a whiteboard. He is the tattooed voice from JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, and he plays the part with panache. Has the entire team lost their “voice” in his presence? Well, not everyone. Whew.
I fear where the writers are taking Ted (Jason Sudeikis). He might need more precious time with Dr. Sharon Fieldstone. “Brevity is nice, but sometimes clarity is the true form of wit.” Just don’t make any future appointments with Dr. Jake. Are we skirting the “pre-Madonna” age?
TED LASSO included gobs of clues for the future in subtle, amazing ways. Green matchbooks, Hugh Jackman riddles, Mrs. Maisel, and making out in alleyways will keep audiences on their toes and returning for more. I know I am solidly in the palm of this phenomenal show. I will have my front-row ticket ready for another win next week. The entire gang has gathered, and I can’t wait.
