So I still have Disney+ solely for The Madalorean.

Ted Lasso is the only feel good soccer show I want and need.

If you have kids -- or even if you don't -- the Australian cartoon "Bluey" is farking epic. Best kids' show I think I've ever seen, including when I was a kid.

It's getting hard to keep my kids from speaking with Aussie accents lately.

I canceled my Disney+ subscription until the next season of The Mandalorian comes out. Gotta save a little money where I can.

I was disappointed that the stunning beautiful actress who starred in Bend It Like Beckham didn't go on to have a bigger career.

When my wife was like "I hear there's a feel good show about soccer on Disney+, we should watch it!" I was not expecting the pure joy that is Ted Lasso. Honestly just a great show.

Indian-Britons have had a hard time scoring major roles for decades, so I'm not surprised.

The other girl? I think a stiff breeze blew her into the sea.

I don't really watch cartoons, never did even as a kid. I'm not trying to sound like some sort of intellectual snob, I just said I only have Disney+ for a show about a CGI miniature Yoda.

I think Ted Lasso might tell you to open yourself to the possibility that your heart has enough room for another show about soccer. Be curious, my friend.

As a chancletero, I love the way the dad on that show interacts with his daughters.  My kids absolutely love that show and it's great to get them to play silly games.

We have adopted the term "bush wee".

Yes. I know he's not CGI and he's not Yoda. I think his name is Groku or something to that effect.

Yes, "bush wee" is now a part of the vernacular.

We have been playing games they learned from the show every day for a week or more -- namely the one (from the pilot episode) where the magic xylophone freezes the dad and the kids put him in embarrassing poses. It's a workout.

It's so refreshing to see a show where the dad is the protagonist parent (at least in the plot) for a change, not just the stereotypical, incompetent dufus parent in the background.

You may be shocked to learn that Disney+ is available outside of the US.

He's going to supply designer handbags to the side so that they can play like they've got them?

/ came out crap.  was intended to reference sides that play "like they're carrying handbags" as they would've said 40-50 years ago

Hey, cool.  A "triggered" snowflake can't take a perfectly apt reference devoid of any political context.  Weakling.
