This episode will focus on the nuance and emotion of the Apple TV+ show Ted Lasso. I love this new show and highly recommend you check it out, and I go in to detail as to why.

I also mention the following episode of a YouTube series called Pop Culture Detective about Fantastic Beats and Where To Find Them which is very relevant, in my opinion: The Fantastic Masculinity of Newt Scamander. I highly recommend you check this video out as well.

Edit (Sept 15): Here is the original set of NBC promos for EPL soccer where Ted Lasso is from:

I should note that the character from these promos is actually quite different from how he’s portrayed in the show, and I like the show’s character a LOT more.
