Welcome to our first episode of Now Playing!!! We’re starting with the always delightful Ted Lasso, available on AppleTV.
In the first episode of "Ted Lasso," an American college football coach from Kansas, named Ted Lasso, is hired to coach AFC Richmond, an English soccer team. Despite being ridiculed for his folksy optimism and lack of experience with the sport, he gradually wins people over through his kind and compassionate approach to coaching. The episode introduces the clash of cultures and the challenges Ted Lasso faces as he tries to adapt to a new environment.
Have you watched Ted before? What did you think of this episode?
(Tomorrow: The OA Episode 1.1)
“Do you believe in ghosts, Ted?”
“I do. But more importantly, I think they need to believe in themselves, you know?”
There’s something so delightful about Ted Lasso. I’m already excited to be watching him again.
