    33 “International Break” (S3E10)

    An hour-long episode of “Ted Lasso” generates an hour-long discussion, of course. We break down all the many storylines, including Sam fact-checking a pep talk, Dani Rojas taking all the friendly out of an international friendly, Nate dodging the paparazzi, Rebecca seeing a little girl and many little boys, Keely buying a souvenir, and Roy being a microscopic cog in his niece Phoebe’s catastrophic plan.

    32 “La Locker Room Aux Folles” (S3E9)

    “Ted Lasso” finally narrows its focus from sixty kajillion characters and storylines to about three. It’s Colin’s time to shine, Roy’s time to face himself, and the writers’ time to try to make your panel care about Nate. The panel is animatedly divided on the latter!

    Open up your awnings, tie a string on your ding-dong, and get ready for a lovebombing. We’re here to step in four buckets while discussing “The Strings that Bind Us,” in which Trent Crimm decodes The Lasso Way while Jamie Tartt learns an important lesson—but not number four, definitely not that.

    29 “Sunflowers” (S3E6)

    And so our scene moves to Amsterdam, where a desultory friendly against Ajax leads AFC Richmond and all our characters to moments of transition, revelation, or understanding. The phones are in the canal, the windmills are big, Australians understand Kansas City BBQ, and sometimes all you need to solve your problems are some jazz music and a pillow fight.
