Wait, did Rebecca really say "Freddie Mercury's best talent was flipping straights?"
Am I missing the context/joke?

If the show had guts, they’d go with a Jaime/Keely/Roy endgame. They won’t go Jaime/Roy, but stick Keely in there and it could happen!

I knew I recognized that hot guy at the OP from somewhere. I finally remembered he was on Derek, the UK comedy series staring Ricky Gervais. Damn, I never knew when I was watching Derek he had such a beautifully furry body.

Roy is indeed hot, but I’d be more interested in getting my cock up Jamie’s fat arse. Damn, THAT’S a nice butt.

R15 is he a main character on that show? Is it worth watching even if he’s not?
|by Anonymous||reply 17||May 24, 2023 11:16 PM|
No R17, he's not a main character, but he's very present in the series. And yes, it is very worth watching. One of my favorite series ever. Ricky Gervais is stellar as intellectually challenged Derek (and he directed the series). You'll laugh your ass off, and cry like a baby watching that series.
If you really want to laugh, go to YouTube and search for Derek outtakes. They will make you lose your breath from laughing so hard.
Here's one of my favorites. The big guy in the maroon top is David Earl who is one of the funniest humans on earth IMO.

I still liked Season 3 but....I just don't understand ANY of what they wrote for Keeley this year.
The only thing I could figure is that Juno Temple and the guy that plays Nate were both unavailable for the first half of the season, which is why they were either not in much of the earlier episodes (Nate) or were in some kind of story where they didn't have a lot of scenes with the rest of the group (Keeley).

Is that a gray wig on the Nate actor? I see he is in a new movie with Jon Hamm. Juno is in a couple things.
|by Anonymous||reply 21||May 26, 2023 12:50 AM|
In case it wasn't obvious, the episode's title could have been "There's No Place Like Home". All The Wizard Of Oz mentions, the Moms, Brandi Carlyle sining "Home" from "The Wiz" over the end credits. And he's from fucking Kansas! I cried my eyes out through the entire thing. Sudeikis is the glue that holds it all together.

If there *was* a spinoff, and Ted was either not in it at all or only seldom seen.....
Who would be the must haves for the spinoff to continue?
Juno Temple is probably busy for the next several years and may not be available. I'm sure most of the others don't want to play the same characters forever, and also those Brits love to do their thing for 3 years and then GTFO and do something else.
I'd be all about another season....if it had a purpose. This last season was kinda like the last season-ish of Downtown Abbey, where a whole bunch of horseshit clogged up the first part to tread water for the inevitably more fun/dramatic stuff at the end.

Rebecca, Roy, and Jamie are musts for me. Trent Crimm has been underused.

No point for another season. Let it die.
But, yes rebecca, Roy, Jamie, Higgins are musts. Brett G. seems like he’s got other shit going, so I wouldn’t count on him being a major role. I imagine all the players would come back, why not it seems like an easy gig. I would want Trent but what would be his role? maybe be PR guy for the team. He should get a hot, younger soccer player bf. Would beard stay? Would he want to live in England without his bff? I’m done with Nate and if he’s head coach he’d be ‘the new Ted?’ no thanks.

This is what I liked about some old British comedies. They'd stop making episodes and then 2, 3 or 5 years later if they had another idea they'd make another season or two.
Not just making something to make it.

Does anyone else find this season awful? I remember when this show was actually kind of funny. Now it’s just another maudlin, huggy slog where lessons are learned. Why do so many comedies end up going in this direction? That final scene between Ted and his mother was poorly written and acted. I hope the Emmys will bestow their attention elsewhere this year.
|by Anonymous||reply 29||May 26, 2023 11:19 PM|
It definitely should’ve stuck to 30-35 minute episodes. Maybe one 1 hour long ep per season. Most of the filler is lame.

Agreed, R31. Watching "You've Got Mail" and crying? The first few times they tried the "players are unexpectedly sentimental and wholesome" thing it was funny, but they've taken it too far.
|by Anonymous||reply 32||May 27, 2023 4:53 AM|
I’m convinced the show is using Jamie as gay bait at this point. I’m not even exaggerating—this past episode had several lingering shots of his perfectly round ass, and a moment where Roy and Jamie lean in and touch their heads…almost as if they’re about to kiss. I also got the impression Roy, Jamie and Keely might end up in a throuple.
Episode 11 was one of the better ones.
|by Anonymous||reply 33||May 27, 2023 6:20 AM|
Yeah this season has been dire. It's not funny any more. Everyone seems distracted like they're bored with it now and wish they were anywhere else.
The hour-long episode format has made it dreary and preachy.

As lackluster as this season has been, I did like the “thank you…fuck you” scene. I also liked the revelation Coach Beard was a former felon/methhead.

No woman would have let her son deliver that entire “thank you…fuck you” monologue without interrupting him to, at the very least, saying that he will not speak to her like that. It felt so inauthentic.

I think Sudeikis/Hunt et al haven't been as involved with the writing. The two of them and Brett Goldstein have had a hand in some of the better episodes, but there's also a lot of writers on the team who are writing SJW fantasies about what they wish soccer players were like.
(I say that as someone who lives in a SJW bubble, so it's not mean.....but yeah, it's not terribly realistic either.)

Why wouldn’t you get your ex-wife and Don to move to England? If she was against it and made you move back to be with your son then she’s a bitch and a horrible person.
|by Anonymous||reply 53||May 31, 2023 11:48 AM|
Maybe because they didn’t want to uproot their whole lives and move to England? Is that fair to ask of them? It doesn’t make her a bitch for not wanting to do that. And when I was 10, I wouldn’t want to move to a different country, either. Ted should’ve been the one to move back.

For those who watched- how did it end with Roy and Jamie? Did either get back with Keely?
What about Trent?
Ted went back to the US, yes?
Rebecca get her Dutch guy?

A solid ending. No surprises, but enjoyable nonetheless.
If you've been watching it, it was very satisfying. While they clearly had it setup for another show, it didn't leave any loose ends.

As much as I enjoyed the show, I feel like the characters have had their stories told.
A new series would simply be a retread or worse, a backward step.

Open to interpretation. They never make it clear one way or another.
They never show them break up. However, during the final game, you can see that she sees he's a complete douche. On the flip side, when Ted returns to America, he goes to her house directly from the airport, ostensibly to see his son. It's never made clear whether he had arranged a place to live before returning. Finally, you see Ted coaching his son's soccer game and the wife is in the bleachers with no sign of the therapist.

This season was weird, so many big events were offscreen like like Ted telling the team he was going home; Nate leaving West Ham, I kept thinking I missed an episode. Seems like a lot got left on the cutting room floor.
When Rebecca was teeing up a possible future with Henry joining him in London; great schools, connections for Michelle to come too, so they could co-parent successfully, it sounded awesome. What a great opportunity for Henry that would have been.

There were things I hated about this season but still, I loved this show.
I'll take a slightly frustrating show of people being human to each other any day over the absolute dystopia and relentless darkness of the various crime shows and procedurals. If I want relentless hopelessness and dystopia I'll watch Fox News.

So Beard's first name = Willis.
They did the whole let's swap identities thing on the team and Beard is Will and Will is Beard.
Will is Beard.
