It really set things up for a lot of stuff to potentially happen.

It was nice to see a new episode but I think the sparkle has dulled a bit. It's good that it will end (at least in its current form) this season.
I do still loathe Nate.
And I do still want Roy to put Jamie on top of a bench in that locker room and pound him until he begs for mercy.

I can't see them winning the championship, however I could see them beating the rival team in the ranking.
I think the whole message of the show is that Lasso's coaching style doesn't make you a winner, but a better person in general, not obsessed with winning at all costs.

All I want this season is Trent & Danny Rojas to have a chat about their hair care routine.
I wasn’t blown away by episode 1 but ep 2 was back to it’s funny self. I could honestly have less of the Keely storyline. She was a great addition to the club & a funny pairing with Roy. I really don’t need to see her go off & have a career elsewhere. It doesn’t add anything to the show.

R4 you’re correct, she looks way too thin. It’s distracting; all the clothes fit her badly. Plus the bad Botox. She looks like a sunken apple head doll

Thought ep 1 was a disappointment, not especially funny. But I figured it was setting things up for the season. Ep 2 is terrific, funny, buoyant, with plenty of heart. But Keeley (Juno Temple) looks unnaturally skinny to the point where she’s dosappearing, and her hair looks awful. Everyone else looks great.

Am wondering whether there might ever be a more sardonic black Brit style comedy about football made in the wake of this. TL is very likeable but it’s just too sugary and veneered, plus it doesn’t convey the true seedy depths of PL football. There’s so much more of the iceberg we haven’t seen and won’t see in this show.

R27 the wink-nudge shipteasing in this season is cute I suppose, but also a little disheartening and tired, because you just know it's not going anywhere and the tedious share-a-WAG drama will continue (Footballer's Wives from 20 years ago had more saucy gay & lesbian content). I would even gladly settle for Roy & Keeley sharing sub Jamie in a throuple scenario.

R28 R28 the show is called 'Ted Lasso' and Sudeikis was originally the marquee name/money draw, but by this season it's really 'Roy & Jamie'. Maybe 'and Keeley' if you're a straight man who likes waifs. No-one cares about the Ted character, and no wonder, because he's so static (as well as American, which...ugh). You could put a perky affable motivational android in Ted's place, and no-one would notice.

|by Anonymous||reply 33||March 26, 2023 3:51 PM|
I've loved the show but as someone else said, it's so sugary sweet that it's become over-the-top silly. It's more like a cartoon, or something that would air on Nickelodeon. It's as if with all the funny lines and moments and all the attention placed on "inspirational" moments, they haven't allowed one continuity person on the set. The Hannah Waddingham character is supposed to be the owner of this big club and a wealthy and successful woman in her own right, but there's no sense that she's running any business. NOBODY on this show, when shown in an office, has an actual keyboard and monitor. They've just been given a MacBook Air to sit in front of and type into, to pretend they're doing "business lady work". It's very awkward. I'm not even sure they show a computer in Ted's office. They certainly don't show any screens in the locker room. Even when I played football in high school we had a small screening room to review our games and practice plays.
I've also, for whatever reason, become unable to separate Ted from the Ned Flanders character on The Simpsons. Maybe that's who Sudekis is modeling the character after, but it's so silly and over the top, and nothing about him reflects being a coach of an sport. By the way, what is it that the ginger assistant coach is supposed to do, other than be "quirky" and Ted's best friend? Does his character actually DO anything?
Here's a dark plausibility I've come to consider for the end of this show. Jason Sudeikis has been seeming to make it all about "mental health" lately. Yeah. Suddenly, this light hearted show is being marketed to have a core undertone of mental health challenges. So, it's possible that we see a series end where they win the big game. Rebecca finds love, (thanks to Ted of course), Keeley and Roy marry or whatever, everyone ends up loving one another, England adopts Ted Lasso as a national hero, all is well and happy... and the final episode shows Ted having died by suicide. His happy veneer was only masking some great pain. He was all about "bringing joy" to others and once he achieved it, he felt he had nothing to live for. Everyone ends happy, but sad, and having learned an even great lesson from martyred hero Ted Lasso. .... really. I can almost see this being set up. Would be curious to know if anyone else here see this as a plausible conclusion..?

R35, okay I"ll give you "twisted" but I don't "need help" just cause I'm being morose and dark... Probably a bit TOO dark, sure. But I'm serious that I can easily see this being a possible end of the series and I wasn't even trying to be snarky.
The cast was at the White House the other day and it was billed as "Ted Lasso cast at White House to bring awareness to mental health". I never knew that was an important angle they were promoting on this show and I suppose that's cool. Although I also think Jason Sudeikis has likely gotten drunk with fame and unbridled praise, so he's likely going to go all "serious actor" on us very soon, where everything he does must correlate to some deep meaningful crusade or social issue. Who knows. But there have been hints dropped that make a series ending with an unexpected tragedy, even if not a suicide of Lasso, quite plausible.
I'd hate that to be the ending but if it is, you owe me a steak dinner R35! ;-)

The writers bungled the Keely story line.

R34 to be fair, the Hannah Whaddingwhatever character just decided to get the football club in the divorce and wreck it because her husband loved it above anything else. There is no indication that she was a successful business woman prior to that, just a rich socialite, IIRC. In fact, her bringing Ted in as a head coach was supposed to show that she A. was woefully inept in managing the club, B. firmly intended to destroy it as a “fuck you” to her ex-husband. It’s just that later in the series they got caught up in the agenda to show that women can do everything just as well or better than men when they get around to it.

R50 lmfao as if there haven't been countless disinterested and incompetent managers & owners of football clubs who are men. Plenty of idiot ol!garchs and bankers and society men have taken a club on financially, only to realise they don't know what they're fucking doing, the stress and drain and cost is insupportable, and/or they don't actually care about it as much as they thought. It's a unique and difficult and often thankless task. Half the clubs in the English Prem have current owners, either individuals or business groups, who clearly couldn't care less and aren't up to the job, and 90% of those owners are male (and foreign, but that's beside the point).
That's why Chelsea F.C. struck gold with Abram0vich, and have suffered so badly from his absence. He was a rare breed; a filthy rich man with proper business savvy and disposable millions, who also adored English football and understood the game very well as a fan/manager, and had no qualms about sinking time and emotion and knowhow as well as money into the club.

They have better chemistry than Roy and Keeley and Jamie and Keeley. Keeley needs to eat a fucking meal. She’s scary eating disorder thin and it’s hard to look at and it makes her face look older and not attractive so it’s hard to fathom all those hot footballers fawning over her. TedBecca is endgame. They’re soulmates and it’s time to just get this shit rolling. There’s no bloody way the lez like therapist is fucking a hot young footballer. Worst scene ever. Beard takes over as coach, he is totally immersed in UK culture and studies the game (the book referenced in season 3 episode 2) Nate is a troll, like as short and fugly as one. He needs to throw himself off the top of the stadium. We’re not caring about him redeeming himself. He betrayed the Wolfpack! Blasphemy!

R78 the explanation I heard was that some viewers took offense to an older white woman engaging in sex with a younger POC man, and possibly leveraging her power against him.
Like you, I wasn't conflating Rebecca's authority with her race--it's still weird and a bit inappropriate in a situation where either Sam is white or Rebecca is POC too. And to be frank, there are young men who genuinely desire older women and court that kind of relationship, young ballers will fuck anything that moves, and in any hetero sexual exchange males still have a certain degree of systemic power over their female partner regardless of a diminished age or social status. So you could go round in circles with moral fingerwagging forever.

Either Phil is brilliant at fanservice & baiting, loves attention for any reason, or he’d actually be well up for playing Roy/Jamie as sexual or romantic. Perhaps it’s a bit of all three.
[quote] Actor Phil Dunster would 100% be up for [making Jamie Tartt a bisexual character]. Whether it’s filming a post-episode interview for AFC Richmond’s social media which was nominally about leading into the “Beard After Hours,” episode but will forever be remembered for the fact that when Jamie mistakes the journalist’s questioning as an implication that he and Beard are hooking up, to which his scornful response is that Beard is not his type because he’s too scratchy — not, you know, that he’s straight — or liking and applauding an Instagram comment on his page from a fan suggesting that The Crown actor Josh O’Connor should play Jamie’s boyfriend in season 3 it’s easy to believe that there is plenty of scope to view the character as something other than straight, and it’s that it’s scope his actor recognises as well. I’ve always suspected the poster of Roy that we know on Jamie’s wall was something of a childhood crush, an idea bolstered, naturally, by Dunster and co-star Brett Goldstein straight up making cracks about Apple censoring the lovemaking scenes between Jamie and Roy — right for the story, apparently, but just too hardcore in the end.
[quote] Dunster is also the only cast member to have mentioned being aware of Roy/Jamie fanfiction and shipping, and while a good handful of people are into it, it’s not an idea that dominates the wider Ted Lasso fandom spaces by any means. In fact, Ted Lasso is not even a show whose audience particularly gears towards transformative works on the whole. (The show, as of October 2022, has around 3300 works on Archive of Our Own and less than 10% of those are Roy/Jamie stories. Those figures, in the grand scheme of both transformative fandoms or shipping culture, and also Lasso’s wider popularity and audience engagement, are not high.) More widely appreciated by the general audience is the relationship between the actors, whose affectionate bromance made a splash at the Emmys last month when Goldstein, who picked up another Best Supporting Actor trophy, brought Dunster, who unfortunately once again missed out on a nomination, as his date, and in media commitments leading up to the awards, Dunster has continued to enthusiastically fawn over Goldstein, which to date has included waxing lyrical about how hunky Goldstein’s body is, attributing their crackling chemistry to how good he smells, and declaring that he is in love with him.
[quote] All very fun, but more importantly, he’s pointed out the fact that the real love story of Ted Lasso, specifically within the intricate under-one-another’s-skin-for-life triangle his character is locked in, is Jamie and Roy. He’s 100% correct, just in the sense of what those characters mean to one another. They belong together, in whatever way you’d like them to be, and they both belong with Keeley too. “It’s setting it up for where you want to keep the journey going with these three characters, because it’s almost never ending. They could be this kind of awesome family that keeps [twirling together motions] for eternity,” Juno Temple says of the connection between the group. Keeley pouring those two coffees the boys brought her into one cup during the season 1 finale is truly the perfect metaphor for the scenario. I’m not putting Roy on this list overall, but by nature I guess he’s included here because Jamie is Jamie, and because it’s Jamie, Roy might go for it even if he’d never gone for it before. It’s very unlikely the show will go there, but it’s a credit to Ted Lasso that I feel as if it’s not absolutely impossible. That they’re forward-thinking enough and subversive to be in the small bracket of shows who just fucking go for it.

The “closeted athlete” storyline…. Is anyone incredibly bored by it? Maybe straights still need to see it but as a gay of a certain age I find it boring and personally I’m fucking fed up with the idea that in 2023 ANYONE should feel shame or want to hide who they are.
Being gay is really not a big deal, folks! Yet here it is, a major storyline on a major TV show - yet fucking again. The character isn’t good, he isn’t bad, he’s just gay and that in itself is the scandalous plot line. ENOUGH!!!!!!

Ted and Rebecca are the ones who need to be together not her and her very young employee who is so overly excited about life in general it’s nauseating. He is going to go full on embrace his african roots with his new chef anyhow. Chemistry is there. Keeley is too thin, scary fugly now and her character has REGRESSED. She’s not a “boss bitch” but a dump child who can’t make a proper decision, wants to be everyone’s friend and isn’t smart enough to understand how to run a business. Her friend Shandy (?) needs to get smacked. She’s going to either ruin Keeleys business or she’s going to double cross her. Jealous, Annoying Reality show wannabe and fat. Jamie and Roy have amazing chemistry, I’d love something more but they want Roy/Keeley endgame unfortunately. Beard will be Richmond’s coach when Ted realizes he can’t do it anymore, his lessons have been taught and his sons being raised by the marriage counselor (which BTW FUCK HIS ASSHOLE EX WIFE! That was a shit move to make her date him but shows how she is rude , thoughtless and not really respectful of her sons father) Rebecca doesn’t need to be in UK full time anyhow. She needs to be with Ted and they raise his son (psychics you’ll be a mum speech) Nate is a fugly troll. I don’t want a redemption arc for this weirdo. Only if he goes full on crazy and wipes out his family for the abuse he got and then just loses it on anyone who’s ever made him feel small. Zava: Jamie will figure out his secret…

R97 in general I agree; it’s pandering, trite, and done to death, territory that’s been raked over too much and is now dry as a bone.
Except in this specific context. Because it is still scandalous and secret and sensitive to be gay in the world of top flight global pro football. It shouldn’t be, but sadly it is, and that’s the reality we’re working with. So there is drama to be mined, albeit for the wrong reasons.

R97 has no clue about what it's like to work with, be on a team with, etc., people from countries that are not as accepting of LGBT folks. Even in countries like the U.S., how open gay people can be depends highly on where they live. That's just reality. It's gotten better in some ways than it used to be, but it's seriously still an issue for many people. Having to be careful and private is still necessary for some people.

|by Anonymous||reply 106||March 31, 2023 5:40 PM|
Also, worth noting British/Euro jocks are a rather different breed than American, and non-Western jocks are another breed again. The 'don't ask, don't tell' culture is alive and well in non-American sports, as is the notion of horseplay and 'boys being boys' being comfortably tolerated or even accepted but remaining behind closed doors. In Western Europe, coming out isn't seen as such a necessary or noble thing as it is in the U.S. (probably because there isn't heavy ubiquitous religious/political pressure to be straight), and it's also not seen as such a big deal as in Eastern countries where to claim a gay identity is to ask for the death penalty.
It's this odd middle ground, where to be a gay sports player or a sports player who has same-sex relations is accepted and everyone knows it goes on, but there's still a big reluctance and embarrassment to announce it and make a song and dance Robbie Rogers style. And with teams at this high level often comprised of players from a mix of cultures, some more accepting than others, there's a fine line to walk and everyone has to be careful not to tread on toes.
Perhaps this is finally starting to change in Britain, though, what with Rainbow Laces, and Ted Lasso having a gay player as a character, and brave lads like Jake Daniels coming out publicly on social media. Several EPL players have also told the press that they're happy with gay lads in their team and they'll support any player who does come out.

Great show, and great episode three of season three. I am a bit shocked how they introduced a gay storyline so late in the run when it is supposed to end with the third season.
Trent is working for Rupert, either being a spy or writing a hit piece to fuck with Rebecca's team (fucking with their heads like he did with Roy all those years ago).
I think Ted and Rebecca get in a fight over something (Colin being sold off or fired after he gets outed? Would be a total un-Rebecca move from her) which makes him quit the job. Of course, Ted and Rebecca patch things up somehow. But Ted is moving back to the US anyway to stay close to his son. Hence, the show ending.
Rebecca's green matchbook makes me believe that she will have her happy ending after all. Will it be with Roy? There was this moment in season two where they seemed to be getting close.
I thought Colin's boyfriend was cute.

Clearly Zava will at some point leave and play for Rupert and Nate. Which will set up the David vs Goliath end of the show.
I could see Trent and Rebecca somehow becoming intertwined. Either that or Trent comes out. It was implied that Trent was playing a big role in this season.
I really can't see Rebecca with Ted, because it's been such a great friendship and it would be ruined by romance. And I can't see Rebecca with Sam, because of the age difference and power differential....it was fine as a fling and an "amuse bouche" for Rebecca but it's just....no for a long term.
I loathe Keeley's friend and most of Keeley's story this season but it might be a hard luck kind of story that the more successful you get, the more abandoned you are, or feel you are, by the people you once knew.
Ted really only has two options by the end of the season - either he implodes like his father did, or he realizes his son needs him, no matter how messy things are, and he goes home.

I think Keeley’s friend will sell stories to the tabloids about the team (to include about Colin’s sexuality), but Trent will initially be blamed.
Zara will die. Nothing exciting…he’ll just die before doing anything significant. And even though it’s ridiculous, I think Roy will be brought back in some redemption tale…winning a significant game.

I hope the show doesn't do a spin-off. I like it, but it needs to have a definitive ending.
I'm surprised they're introducing a gay story arc with so few episodes left. Also, isn't outing universally understood to be morally unethical these days? Having the journalist discover the guy is gay seems bit on the nose.
I am also unreasonably angry at the counselor dating Ted's ex-wife. It should be considered completely unethical and a basis for losing your license if you date a former patient, just like dating a current one. Transference is a thing in therapy. Also, as a therapist, by definition, you exert undue power in a relationship because you've had access to the inner workings of another person's mind - you've basically been told how to manipulate the person. There is NO way to know whether the therapist didn't sabotage their marriage on purpose, then merely wait a short period of time before swooping in with all the knowledge he gained from the therapy sessions to manipulate her into a relationship.
Strangely, I've never had an issue with a therapist in this manner or known anyone to have this issue, but there's something about it that rubs me the wrong way. It just strikes me as so unethical and manipulative.

Zava will have a Spiritual Awakening , find ‘god’ and reject all things materialistic. He will quit and live on a kabbutz (spelling?) and then Richmond will realize they were winning on his merits only and not on their own so they take their hero worship of one man and channel it into TEAM WORK which is the ultimate Ted Lasso lesson. Ted goes home but Rebecca realizes he’s ‘the one’ so she and him figure out how to make it work (hence the psychic saying she’ll be a ‘mum’, his sons Hoe bag mom is F***ing the Marriage therapist so she’s not as invested in parenting her kid but getting her pussy taken care of) so Coach Beard is the new coach with Roy (but Roy gets one more chance to play, when Zava refuses) so he and Jamie work together to score the winning goal and make Richmond the number one team. Nate is going to be a mass shooter on the top of the BBC screaming with weapons and then he just cries when Ted shows up to talk him down and he ends up in a mental facility where he needs to be Keely is anorexic and maybe they will finally address it. Her friend is a frenemy and will ruin her reputation and PR business. The smart chick will ultimately save it but Keely realizes she’s Ill equipped for that and runs back to just doing PR for Richmond. Trent will be blackmailed into revealing info on the club by Rupert but ultimately confesses in a presser to what happened and why Richmond deserves respect. Black african dude and chef get married, have kids, Rebecca jealous at first but sees she’s too old and his boss so it’s creepy to want to fuck a child who works for her.

This happened with a real EPL footballer years ago iirc. He was doing ok in a top league, quit to join a monastery or something because he said that he was bored/unfulfilled by the lifestyle, and that the profligate sex-addicted ways of footballers disgusted him. The weirdest part is that he wasn’t already religious or from a religious conservative family, just a normal secular working-class Anglo lad.

The article in R184 acts like the show is over and they never mentioned Colin being gay again! There’s still six episodes left, chill author. They’re for sure going to address it.
And I think it’ll be Trent talking to Colin, not as a nosy former reporter who wants to out Colin as an inside scoop, but as a fellow gay ready to offer an ear or some advice. I can’t see Trent having nefarious goals with this. He already feels bad for writing about Teds panic attacks, no way he’ll out some kid.

Keeley has the body of a 11 yr old girl and the teeth are very British. Her lack of awareness on how to run a business is infuriating. She thinks lunching is all she’s required to do. Now she has the other reality show hoe as her assistants but it’s evident she’s going to fuck Keeley over with going into business for herself. I loathe that whole storyline. James needs to fire that dumb fuck and teach keely how a real woman runs a business also they are going to 100% eat each others boxes. Jamie and Roy have more chemistry anyhow. Ted and Rebecca should have always been endgame in this. If they fuck it up and give Ted and his whore wife a second change. I’ll hate this show and never want to see more of it. Sam and his chef are going to be the new African power couple. Nate is a troll who needs to go on a murderous rampage of his family who fucked him up then attempt suicide.

Jamie and Keeley get back together. Keely fires Shandy (Shandy betrays her) and learns the hard way on being successful.
Jamie surpasses Zava in being a top player (with Roy’s coaching).

The show seems to be set mid season and Richmond were playing Rupert's team West Ham (not Manchester) to go top.
So failure is not an option for Ted, Rebecca, Richmond or any of the players.
They've previously been relegated so playing in Europe will be a huge victory and being huge financial rewards and new players.
A Leicester like victory would not be unbelievable.

Jamie & Keeley coupling up again just seems like such a dead end.
As others get and elsewhere have rightly pointed out, the different couple pairs of the Roy/Jamie/Keeley throuple don’t work as well when separated from one of the members.
Jamie has more to learn and grow from with Roy than with Keeley, if he can’t have both in his life as would be optimal for them all. Keeley can be somewhat dominant like Roy which is good for Jamie, but she’s also too indulgent of Jamie and not as cognisant of the football-mad part of him that governs his decision.
Keeley for her part seems to want a *man* in her life as well as a spiceboy, someone masc and stoical and capable, and pretty pouty peabrained Jamie’s never going to change enough to be that for her. Roy can be Keeley’s rock and defender and right-hand, as well as her cheerleader and advocate and dumb muscle.

Colin’s bare but was disappointing. He’s supposed to be a bloody jock and he has a pancake flabby ass! Also the chink twink he’s dating is just yuck. As if anyone thinks he’s a wingman to anyone for any gender. Casting fails on both of them. Trent Crimm is gay right? Maybe he won’t out Colin but someone else might’ve seen them and they will but everyone assumes it’s reporter Crimm and he’s blacklisted from following the team for his book. Nate will have an epic meltdown and attempt suicide, it’s TED not his father (or Rupert) who visits him to show he truly cares for Nate as a person and feels he has redemption. Shanty is a skank but she will show how in over her head Keely is with her “I’m a boss bitch” persona. She’s a reality show dimwit.

Since this is the last season they probably want to end it on a positive note. Season two was a downer, so this one has to end on an up. I don’t think they’ll have a suicide attempt. But Nate should definitely start therapy. Ted needs to go home. That’s what’s best for his mental health. Or somehow get Henry to move to England if Ted renews his contract.

I really loved the first season, but I hate that it's gone from being a half hour comedy to an hour long dramedy. It's also suffering from the same thing that all Bill Lawrence shows suffer from where it feels a little too in love with itself and self-conscious about trying to pay service to whatever fans are responding to. I also absolutely cannot stand the Nate character. And not because he's become the bad guy, but because his shy, stuttering, cutesy schtick that he does whenever he's not being the villain is cloying beyond belief.

The Fortune Teller told Rebecca that she'd be a mom. Doesn't mean that she's pregnant (especially since she was drinking ALOT at Sam's restaurant opening) I think, if she's with anyone, it would be Ted. I'm not hoping this as I think hooking the two us is a little too easy, and I honestly don't think Ted, with his problems, would be a good match. But, it this is the case, Ted could stay and get custody of his son, making Rebecca a step-Mom.
So, is anyone else confused about why there is no indication(or discussion) on whether Sam and Rebecca are still a couple? The woman in the restaurant who was cooking for Sam could easily be a relative. They never kissed, so there's that.

There were some pap shots a few months ago of filming of Colin and Trent walking and talking, so this might be the episode Colin comes out, or at least discusses it with Trent. (Who I think is gay, that rainbow mug he had in ep 5 was for sure his). Colin will probably make out with Michael in public again but some of his teammates see. I want them to be supportive!

[quote] Human sexuality is not that fluid. Keeley was a massive cock hound with two hot men. Now, we’re suppose to believe she wants to eat pussy.
Sexuality really does work differently for women, though.
There are countless instances of Straight' (repressed bi) women suddenly having awakenings or gaining a strong unforeseen attraction to women, especially those in peri/pre/menopause, or those with higher libidos. It's practically a meme in the w/w community. So it's not beyond reason.
Anyway, in Keeley's case it's not even sudden. As someone said upthread, it was established years/seasons ago via a few throwaway lines of dialogue ("the minute [Rebecca] locked eyes with me, I started sweating"/"if I'm gonna dip my toe back into the Lady pool") that Keeley can and does see women in a sexual light. So to be surprise-pikachu'd by JacKeeley is an odd reaction...

The problem the show has now is that all the characters are dues paying member of Ted Lasso “how to be best friends forever and occasionally play team sports together” program, which has essentially neutered any intra-main cast conflict and has also rendered Ted himself sort of superfluous.

That was the exciting thing about Nate (if such a thing exists) that he could crack away from the Ted Is A God business and explore the other side but....that has been nonexistent. After a big buildup in the finale Nate was barely in the first few episodes.

R309 At first that revenge fantasy from Roy struck me as too sadistic and sociopathic, in a cartoonish way.
Then I remembered Roy Keane's history of terrorising people both physically and emotionally, and appreciated the parallel. Keano on a bad day literally used to make strong fit cocky grown men tremble and go white and mute with fear.

The Shandy storyline didn’t make any sense.
Keely hired Shandy because even though she was a party girl, she had brilliant ideas but was never given a proper chance. But then she’s hired and…. Proves herself to be a useless partygirl.
What was the point of Shandy? What did she add to the show?

She wasn't a pop singer - all of Andrew Lloyd Webber's showers would have a single released from the soundtrack.
Dina Carroll had a huge hit with The Perfect Year from Sunset Boulevard, Boyzone recorded No Matter What from Whistle Down The Wind. Hannah was appearing In The Beautiful Game which the song came from.
If you want to see Hannah in action watch the Regents Park Open Air theatre production of Into The Woods. She played the Witch and was outstanding.

Season 1? Terrific. S2: Largely a mess with some bright spots (it's shocking how much they get wrong about Premier League soccer, considering it's filmed in London). S3: It's... fine? The episodes are far too long, and there are too many secondary characters (Keeley was fine as Rebecca's bestie and Roy/Jamie's sidepiece, but I can't work up much interest in her running a PR firm; Shandy belonged on a different show and they don't know what to do with the usually hilarious Katy Wix as CFO Barbara, and now there's Jack?). The show still largely shines when it sticks to the soccer team and its management. (Although, to me, Ted+Rebecca is a massive NO. And Zava couldn't be gone soon enough.) I wish the showrunners would go back and rewatch the original promo spots for Premier League on NBC that introduced Ted. They're still smart and funny and what the show should be. (Sidebar: I also wish the hair and makeup department would fix Sudeikis's terrible dye job and glued-on-looking moustache.)

This is the reason I haven't been able to watch full episodes or a full season. If you're British and you follow the game, it's too enraging and cringeworthy to sit through all the inconsistencies, mistakes, bad takes and missed potential. Every scene something is slightly wrong or something is glossed over or something is weirdly phrased, except in the two-hander Roy/Jamie scenes (for which I presume the directors learned to just let the camera run and the dialogue flow).
TL was clearly written and directed by people whose only exposure to football and football culture is at one remove, watching highlights on NBC with American commentary--which is fine, when you aren't trying to write a slice-of-life dramedy about the sport for global audiences.
And it's a pity, because there's so much natural comedy & drama in the actual sport to be mined. It could have so easily been better, or at least consistently good and less awkward.

No Nate, no Keeley and Jack except for a mention, Jamie is being fucking adorable, Rebecca’s Dutch guy is cute, Colin and Trent so far so good (Trent has a sexy voice, I don’t think I noticed before, but when the Prik bartender mentioned Thunderdong and Trent said, ‘Sounds fun, I’m in’ daaammn.) I like Will and Higgins hanging out, could take or leave the team stuff, but it’s not bad.
I don’t know what Ted is going to do to get his mojo back, but something. Probably go to that American restaurant he wanted to go to and drink Beard’s drug tea.

Ted will right the ship, pass the team off to Roy and Beard, and then get back to Kansas. They’ve telegraphed his unhappiness from space. And this episode with the sunflowers (state flower of Kansas) and going to the Burger Barn for some American food (where got his groove back) we know he’s missing home badly.
Part of this show is about bad dads (Jamie’s, Rupert, Nate’s to some extent, Ted’s) so he has to go back home and be there for Henry and be a Good Dad.
I just hope they don’t reunite him with his ex wife. That’d be some total Jason S. wish fulfillment- getting the family back together for a happy ending. Blah.

TIL there's actually a real existing Richmond F.C. (though they're technically 'Hampton & Richmond Borough).
They're 6th tier in the football 'pyramid' (order of leagues), which is considered 'non-league' i.e. semi-pro or part-time local level. It's the same flyshit Conference as my hometown team (Hereford), albeit the South side not the North.
Richmond currently hover in 16th place in the relegation danger zone. If they drop another league down, they risk falling off the map and dissolving into ether. They did win their last game 2-nil vs. Hungerford, though, to be fair. And their main ground/club HQ is called Beaver Close.

But if they're making some kind of narrative point, it's taking FOREVER for them to get there. It feels more like a lot of really nice moments between characters without a story.
Nate vs Everyone was the promise at the end of last year, with Rupert calling the shots behind him, and.....that story has been absolutely muffled, muted, like a fart in an empty hallway. (Not sure if this was part of what changed from the original projections for the season...?)
The last few episodes have been better since we are seeing people we know - vs big chunks of the action being dedicated to Zava and Shandy, which wasted the first few eps.

I heard a theory the reason Jason Sudekis wanted to write and direct nearly each episode of the last season of Ted Lasso is because he wants to replicate what Bill Hader is doing with Barry. The only problem is, while each episode of the last season of Barry has been perfect, Ted Lasso has become nearly unwatchable. I hope Jason doesn’t begin sobbing historically when Barry wins every Emmy for the categories in which they compete against each other.

I hope Ted Lasso doesn’t still have a hold on the Emmy voters like last year. It was ridiculous Brett Goldstein won best supporting actor over Anthony Carrigan or Henry Winkler from Barry. They were amazing, Brett was fine.
Bill Hader needs an Emmy for Barry. Writing, directing, acting, it doesn’t matter.
Do you think the show Beef is going comedy series? That could mess up Barry’s chances if it does. If it goes drama, it’ll probably lose to Succession.

Beef fucked up in multiple ways. In addition to airing on Netflix, where every episode was dumped well before Ted Lasso and Barry began their final seasons (airing on a weekly basis), the cast and showrunner defended a the co-star who bragged about sexual assault a few years ago.
At least Ali Wong will win a consolation prize—getting fucked by Emmy winner Bill Hader.

[quote]Have they mentioned anything about Ted staying or leaving the team after the season ends?
Managers are usually signed on a multi year contract, so if Richmond are coming to the end of their 3rd season with him as manager there'd be discussion about him extending his contract, even if he's spent this season as a promoted team who were one win from going top of the league and falling into a relegation battle.
Just looked at Wiki to see if this was mentioned and saw the next episode is co-written by Keeley Hazell, the former Page 3 stunna who got plenty of football dick from Joe Cole, Keiran Richardson and Anton Ferdinand.

There's always something slightly 'off' about the programme. It's like a cute, American idea of the UK. In the last episode they ordered Full English Breakfasts in the pub. No pub serves breakfasts apart from Wetherspoons. Normal pubs don't open till 11am at least. No-one goes to the pub to watch football wearing a football scarf. Also Richmond isn't some quaint village. On match days it'd be like a war zone.

R436, to your point, I’d also add that the rose-tinted treatment of the footballers and their storylines definitely feels like it was written by a committee of straight theatre boys. Keeley’s recent lesbian relationship which seems like it was basically drinking rosé in loungewear and squealing about shopping felt like it was written by a committee of straight theatre girls.

The Beatles song was really ridiculous. Maybe suitably silly for Henry but.....they were really filling time.

In fact almost everything Keeley does seems very fake. Did Juno have a falling out with the cast?

The makeup artist for the show needs to calm down on the lip gloss application. It’s gross and distracting when we get a close up of Keely or Rebecca talking and there’s always sticky strings of gloss stretching between their lips.

The long episodes do them no favors - there was a whole weird and almost pointless story about players playing for what is essentially an All Star game, for international teams, and the African billionaire who previously tried to lure Sam to his team plays a role in this episode that went on a bit too long.
But there are a few moments where things happen that are very definitely worth cheering for. I won't spoil the specifics.
Warning: it's also a Nate heavy episode. (I don't mind the character, and though he got a lot of shitty writing at the beginning of this season, but warning for those who despise him.)
I have to assume that if Ted the character is wrapping up his time in London, then something happens in this next episode to start that catalyst, and then the end is....well, the end, at least for a while.

I hope it’s not Michelle telling him that she broke up with dr. Jacob and she’s willing to try again with Ted. Vomit.
He should go back because that’s where Henry is. I can’t imagine Ted being away from him for another three years or so.
What’s the synopsis for episode 11?
|by Anonymous||reply 537||May 17, 2023 3:02 PM|
I definitely do NOT want Ted to go back with his ex-wife. No matter how they slice it, it is such a backward step for the character. However, the description for the next episode is "an unexpected guest has Ted on edge" - sounds like ex-wife.
You know they're going to send Nate back to Richmond although that doesn't make any sense. Roy would either have to work for the former towel boy as an assistant, or Nate would have to become an assistant after being head coach. Although if Ted leaves, the other coach would also be leaving, so there's actually two openings.
I want Keeley's business to become screaming success and have the venture capital company fire Jack for yet another screw up. She's essentially Rebecca's ex-husband who can't keep it in her pants.

R543, I cannot tell if you are being serious or not. Very, very nice episode. Rebecca's speech was great. And, as mentioned above, Nathan going from "my boss invited me to drink with whores" to "I quit" really does not make much sense. And it should be a greater scandal, they treat it as if no big deal, but it should be. And Nathan's room....are we to believe that he never moved apartments? his room (before he breaks into his parents' house) makes no sense.

I enjoyed this past episode…it reminded me of something we’d see in Season 1 or 2, and I especially loved the Nigerian billionaire.
However, I wonder if it’s intentional that Ted is now a peripher character. I’m beginning to wonder if he’ll even appear or be mentioned in the final episode.
Also, Keely’s storyline isn’t the feminist triumph the show likes to pretend. She officially hasn’t spent an episode single.
|by Anonymous||reply 548||May 18, 2023 11:58 AM|
They’re phasing Ted out so he can go back to Kansas, but maybe keep the show going with the other characters? Idk if they would do a team spinoff, Brett Goldstein seems busy, as does Juno Temple, but the other characters might want to do a Richmond show.
But I think it’s clear Ted is on his way out. He’ll definitely be in the finale, but he won’t be staying.
I hope ep 12 is the end of it all.

I thought the latest ep was best if the season so far. It captured old love well - the times you remember the best if the person you’re no longer with. Sweet. Great tribute to the essence of sports. Rebecca has come to love the game. Jamie’s continued growth & redemption. Wonderful scene w May. Nate’s parents finally becoming more than a stereotype. Everyone healing. The Ted influence. He will likely leave at the end of the season & all will be better for knowing him. Guessing they’ll carry on into season four.

Absolutely not, R499. The Kansas "accent" is closest to what most people consider the un-accented middle-American accent used on the national news. In other words, you wouldn't consider them to have an accent at all.

Yeah, I'm not psyched in Nate's "redemption" since it isn't based on contrition or personal growth so much as guilt or regret.
Also, the towel boy becomes head coach? Roy would be okay with taking orders from the towel boy?
I don't find Nate to be a compelling character. He's certainly not sympathetic. Good villains are sympathetic.
|by Anonymous||reply 584||May 24, 2023 1:34 PM|
I hope Nate doesn't become head coach.
I'd be good with Roy as HC and Nate as some kind of assistant coach.
Or Beard stays and is HC.
Nate jumping back into Richmond and becoming HC would be a lot to ask of those characters in one episode.

The end scene should be a time jump of a few months with Ted back in Kansas and he gets a package from England and it’s a copy of Trent Crimm’s book- The Lasso Way. Ted smiles and Henry is there and everyone is happy.

Season 3 has been a mixed bag and there have been some good things through the season.
But Nate and Keeley both had shitty storylines. They were both "islanded" from the rest of the show. We should have seen Nate have some sort of showdown with Ted, or Rupert, or someone.....and as for Keeley I have no idea who she is now.

Ah, I think you're right. I just rewatched it and used the google machine.
The woman Rupert was whispering with was his assistant at the time. After her warning, Rupert shows up at the owner's meeting later with the frumpy assistant.
The assistant he was whispering with is obviously just bitter at being dumped and fired, so went running to Bex. She knew she was messing with a married man, but did it anyway. No sympathy for the trash getting taken out. Actually, wasn't Rupert screwing the Bex which led to the divorce with Rebecca or was there another woman before Bex. If she was the woman he was banging while married to Rebecca, why would Rebecca care what happens to her?
