  • Yeah? It might be all that they get.

    I see what you did there. Kudos.
  • Since we're still a few days from the next episode thread, I'll add this here...

    I recall someone in last week's thread thinking a piece of product placement in the last episode was distracting. I didn't happen to notice it when I first watched, but picked up on it on a second watch. However, I then saw the below later on twitter.

    Apparently just an inside joke. Thought that was kind of funny.

    That was me... yeah, that's a good inside joke.

    Ha, that's right.  I remember you posting that and thinking it weird I didn't remember what you were talking about.  Then I saw the episode again and thought, "shiat, how did I miss that?"  I even did a quick google of that whiskey brand which came up with nothing.  Then I saw that twitter post.

    A good inside joke is worth it's weight in gold. The all time best is the "sound of music" one where the Mother Superior calls Maria a c*nt face.

    I'm waiting for Nate's heel turn/betrayal. I mean, he's going to sell out the rest of the to the Independent right?

  • Also, they buried the lede:

    "It's called the iMoney truck," Sudeikis quipped in a June interview with EW when asked about the show's future. "But the story that's being told - that three-season arc - is one that I see, know and understood. I'm glad that they are willing to pay for those three seasons. As far as what happens after that, who knows? I don't know."

    I want a Roy Kent and Keeley show.

    I want a prequel show about the many lives and many masters of coach Beard.

    They also made.several mentions that there might be more than three seasons after all- it's all up to Sudeikis and Lawrence. If they've opened up to extending the series and have enough ideas to do so with a cast and crew that clearly love making it, why not?

    Have you watched the last episode?


    (Spoiler incoming)


    Ted is a deeply traumatized man and uses his veneer of positivity as a defense mechanism to avoid dealing with his feelings.  The show is not a paean to a positive mental attitude.  It's about having the courage to face the pain.

  • Ted Lasso can only work as a show in countries where people can't afford to actually go to therapy.

    Nah, he's off to coach City

    Right.  The problem for me is I got into the show for a Schitt's Creek experience, not a Gray's Anatomy experience.  If you like the preaching, go for it, I'd just rather watch something fun.
  • Snapper Carr: Have you watched the last any episode?

    Just like Dr. Pimple Popper. You probably dont see minor dermatological issues become the size of basketballs if you have a good healthcare system.

    Schitt's Creek also got pretty strongly mutually-supportive and relentlessly positive, at least (or more obviously) after Season1. Lasso is, right from the jump, a show that rejects some of the worst parts of (American) masculinity.

    And I am here for it.

  • The show is very woke.
    Higgins represents the white patriarchy and - despite his importance to the football organization - is continually downgraded office-wise at work.
    Relegating a non-white non-male person to a mop closet would certainly provoke outrage.
