Ted Lasso

Watchers of the Plus 3: Piles of Bits Smothered in Content

There has been a bit of news this week, so we’ve plowed into it. Was “Godzilla vs. Kong” high art? Can a six-part show like “Falcon and Winter Solider” have time to create a sag in the middle of the season? All this and more covered on this week’s episode.

Football is life! But even if you don’t care about sports, you should still watch “Ted Lasso” on Apple TV+. It’s a very funny show that’s also full of empathy and respect for its characters, which never goes for the cheap joke, and takes the tropes of every sports movie you’ve seen and uses them in ways you’re not expecting. And we’ve left plenty of space before the Spoiler Horn for our cross-Atlantic panel to explain why you should watch it and why we love this fusion of American and English sensibilities. We believe in Ted Lasso, and you will too.
