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.

It was a great pandemic show when we all needed more positivity in our lives but frankly it's become tedious. It no longer is a show for the times.

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.

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.

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.

In other news, Office Space was way ahead of its time.

I don't know, having a massively unqualified white guy in his 40s fail upward seems anti-woke to me.

who wants to watch someone go through therapy? It's a similar issue to shows where the main character is in AA. I'd rather watch someone make bad decisions and mistakes.
