Hank the dog…

…that attacked Ted when he was little who he ended up taking care of from in S2E1 after the Danny/Earl Greyhound incident… just realized Hank is a nickname for Henry. Ted’s son obviously named Henry for whom he obviously now takes care of. Just another (possible) Easter egg I noticed on another watch through…

This show…

I just finished the 2nd to last episode (s3 e11 “Mom City”)

I felt an actual full-on tear roll down my cheek, and it hit me this is the first time I’ve properly cried in close to a decade

Fuuuuuck

Rebecca is in The Fall Guy and is incredible as always

https://youtu.be/j7jPnwVGdZ8?feature=shared

She has a major role as a movie producer and general fixer and is great in the role. I know Emily Blunt is listed as the female lead but based on screentime you could argue that's actually Hannah Waddingham. More importantly, the movie is f-ing incredible.

Inspirations real life characters or situations

I recently watched the Beckham documentary and wonder if Beckham's relationship was the inspiration for Jamie and his father.

I recently saw a news article about the soccer team from the Democratic Republic of Congo protest for awareness, before a game like the team did with Sam. I thought it might have inspired the story line but that event happened this February.

Are there any other life imitating art situations or vice versa? I'm not well versed in the world of football but after watching Ted Lasso and Beckham, I'm very curious.

How Exactly Was Dr. Fieldstone Being Rude?

I mean, at first she was a little cold but to be fair, a bunch of grown men being all uppity and superstitious about "the yips" is weird. So she isn't immediately in love with Ted's personality. Big whoop. Was she insulting people? Was she being like really passive aggressive? Just because she wasn't being downright cheery and gleefully matching Ted's energy doesn't make her rude. She grew on me quite quickly, actually, and I was prepared after seeing so much negativity about her on this subreddit. She mellows Ted out, rightfully so. His head sometimes is a little too in the clouds and it is such a testament to how much she ended up grounding him that he forced himself out of his mistrust of therapists to go to her office after that panic attack and to go so far as to call her just to drop that truth bomb about his dad. And hey, we saw her side of things, too. She admitted to having her own defense mechanisms, same as Ted. Idk, I just don't see her as being this cold, rude woman that some of you saw.

Make Rebecca great again.

I'm on my umpteenth rewatch and have just noticed that Ted's panic attack in the karaoke bar is mirrored by Rebecca singing Let It Go.. it starts as she's singing, "be the good girl you always have to be.. conceal, reveal, don't let it show.. but now they know"... and then he runs as she hits "Let it go"..

A rather beautiful mirror of his internal "storm inside" xx

Plus I love that Roy is singing along! X

Is there a feel-good and funny show or movie like this?

I have seen Schitt's Creek, which is on my list of shows like this. Chef is a great movie in this sense, as well. Do you have any suggestions?

What is your overall funniest moment in the entire show?

Whether it be a subtle reference or a great punchline, what is your (pick a few if you want) favourite, funniest moment in the entire show.

I'm onto my 5th rewatch now and for me Nate breaking the window is so deadpan-ly amusing to me.

Also i apologise if this kind of question is spammed

Something from the pilot episode

Starting my umpteenth rewatch and finally I remembered to get on this sub to ask!

When Ted and Beard land in London and meet Ollie the limo driver …

Ollie takes them to see Tower Bridge [and other tourist spots it seems to be implied], Ollie is still holding his whiteboard saying “Ted Lasso” after they’ve left the airport and are looking at Tower Bridge.

Nothing in this show is ever unintentional. What’s the reference or joke I’m missing here??

Question about a short exchange in Diamond Dogs (0108, re: Ted & Rebecca

During the first ever meeting of the Diamond Dogs, when they're talking about Ted's one-night-stand with Sassy, Ted says, "Should I tell Rebecca?" They all shout "No!!!" and he says, "oh come on now, why not? I mean, it'd break my heart if I found out she was hiding something from me!"

I don't understand this. At this point, Rebecca and Ted weren't all that close, and there hadn't been any romantic tension between them or anything like that.

Why would Ted even wonder if he should tell her?

Why would everybody be adamant that he not tell her?

Why would it break his heart if he found out she was hiding something similar from him? Is not mentioning to your boss that you slept with someone (even if it was your boss's friend) really "hiding something"?

The first time I saw it I actually got confused and thought he was asking if he should tell Michelle, because that would make so much more sense to me (as would their responses).

Things you catch yourself thinking in Lasso-speak

Whenever I am now offered something I’d like, I find myself absurdly thinking “YES Pleee-ease” drawn out like Phoebe when Roy asks about the Podiatrist.

Runner up is seeing Jamie Tartt’s name in print and instantly thinking “more like Jamie Fartt” followed by the rest of the lads rant 😆

Help in converting more people

My boss and I are big Ted Lasso fans (I worked VERY hard to convince her and now she has watched it twice). We were talking about Ted Lasso at lunch to some junior staff and we decided to watch the first episode during a lunch break. They are all hooked now, but one lives with her boyfriend and wants to watch with him, but she cannot convince him.

His argument is that he loves football and he thinks the idea of an American football coach coaching “soccer” is too unrealistic and he just won’t be able to get past that and get into it.

Are there football fans in this sub who can present convincing arguments as to why he should at least just give it a go?

Unethical Behavior

So I'm sure this has been addressed before so forgive me. But this is my 4th rewatch of the series, and still to this day I seeth with hatred for Ted and Michelle's former couples councilor dating Michelle. I mean how unethical, and the fact they they didn't hold to that story. Like recap to season 2 where he tells the sports therapist that he felt ganged up on at his couples counseling sessions... you know what. Cause that unethical piece of dog turd wanted to bang your bloody wife!!! Oh I'm so mad...

Hear me out: Spin-Off idea

A miniseries "AFC Richmond" about the club after Ted leaves. Roy Kent manages them through a season of winning both premier league and champions league. Through cameo appearances and props such as newspapers, the Ted Lasso universe is expanded for possible future spin-offs, potentially hinting that Ted manages a soccer team in the US.

A few months after the miniseries, a Ted Lasso movie could have Jamie Tartt transferring to the US, playing in an MLS club under Ted, and alongside Ted‘s son, preparing to lead a US team to the club World Cup, and then getting completely stomped by a European team.

More wordplay and such.

So, I'm perusing the Internet and come across BGT. and think.. Kent, Kent... and context first... I had just binged Ted Lasso from S1E1 til mid S3, over a days time and it was fresh in my mind.. Roy KENT, from Southern England...

I had to Google to make sure... yup. Genius writing?? Intentional?... I'd wager to say Aye...

Season 3 rewatch

Does anyone else absolutely love that Jamie is visibly disappointed that his switch-eroo card doesn’t have a switcheroo? That they’d thought he’d want to keep “playing striker and scoring goals”?

He wants to be a leader in the best sense of the word. And he’s bummed to be pigeon-holed. That they don’t want him to expand. Or even worse: that they think he can’t.

Your most re-watched episode?

Is there one episode you’ve watched more than the rest? Mine’s Rainbow. I could watch that one on repeat forever and (probably) not get sick of it.

I have a job interview today and I’m taking a page out of Rebecca’s book.

I figure it can’t hurt to make myself big as someone who often feels small. Wish me luck!

A lovely deep dive with Coach Beard...

Fans of Coach Beard! Check out this very intimate interview with Brendan Hunt-- all about his comedy origin story, the creation of Lasso, and some funny tales from his time spent in Amsterdam. Well worth the listen.
