Ted Lasso’s second season brings more of the aw-shucks charm and positivity that made the show the biggest hit on Apple TV+.
I’ll admit I didn’t find the show’s concept – a cornball U.S. football coach gets hired to lead a U.K. soccer squad – all that intriguing when the show debuted last year.
But Ted Lasso’s relentless optimism won me over. And I’m not alone: The upbeat show definitely struck a chord with pandemic-weary viewers all over the world.
The show might be too sappy for Cult of Mac reviewer Scout Tafoya, who’s apparently not a sports fan. But even he grudgingly admits Ted Lasso is “handsomely produced and well-acted.”
And really, the show isn’t about sports … it’s about life, leadership and the transformative nature of teamwork.
I know what I’ll be streaming this weekend. How about you?
