Things just seem too contrived/forced this season. Still good for a few good laughs per episode, and I still enjoy watching, but overall this season has definitely felt like a step down

Yes it was portrayed as a slur, but understanding that something is a slur somewhere else and getting that angry about it just -- not plausible. It doesn't have years of offensive use like it does here, and has a completely separate meaning that everyone England associates with it first. The equivalent offensive word in England would probably be "poofta" or "poof".

If the show were flip-flopped and it was an American fan yelling at an American Football player and called him a "fuckin poof" (and said player knew that is what bigots say in England), do you think he'd get as angry in that situation as if he'd been called a "fuckin fag"?

I think you underestimate the globalism that American bigotry has

Even if that word is the same slur there is no way a pro athlete where that word has probably been uttered tons in practices or games throughout his time coming up. Also Isaac is not gay and I don't think he had accepted Colins status so there is no way he would have snapped.

I agree this season has just been an overall let down but the bar was so high and just like a lot of shows its hard to maintain that level. It still has a few laughs an episode but overall the quality is way down from Season 1.

I don't think I remember who ANY of the featured spectators are; bloody nose couple, Wynona judd, or the older couple at the start.

Guess I'm too old

Yeah, the bloody nose couple looked vaguely familiar, but I have zero recollection of who they were, what they did, or even which season they did it in

Reddit answered most of my questions

Bloody nose was Rebeccas date briefly

Redhead and big guy were from the Beard ep

The older couple I'm least sure about but I think they broke the 4th wall during the rom Com ep. Not sure why all these characters needed callbacks.

They def did not. If this many people had no idea who they were, they clearly didn't have enough of an impact outside of their brief appearances in one episode a year ago.

So... were all of the flashforwards just dreams in Ted's head while he was asleep on the plane or are we to believe that they really happened? The Stonehenge marriage leads me to believe they were all Ted's hopes for the future.

^I thought they must have been dreams. Ted wasn't even at the stonehenge wedding -- seems like he'd most likely be Beard's best man.

From Brendan hunt ama:
Quote :
"There are a few reasons. The first is narrative: Ted just got on a plane and left the UK, it would be anticlimactic and deflating if we suddenly see him back there before we even see his plane lands. The other is that that’s just the kind of friendship Ted and Beard have. Case in point is me and Joe Kelly, co-creator of Ted Lasso and one of the best friends I’ll ever know. A few years ago I get an email from him and his fantastic girlfriend that they are getting married in LESS THAN A MONTH. The email clearly stated “no worries if it’s too short of notice” which was awfully nice of them; I desperately wanted to be there but I couldn’t. They had scheduled to wedding the same day as a show I was doing in another city, if I recall correctly. So I missed the wedding, and guess what: no one cares! Our relationship is the exact same, our families live down the street from each other and we see each other all the time. So personally I think Beard called Ted and told him he could sit this one out, and Ted said thanks, because the ceremony conflicted with a big game for Henry’s soccer team. The history of their relationship IMO is long periods of seeing each other and long periods not. We have entered one of the latter, but the former will come around again at some point. They love each other, they will see each other again. They love each other, they will see each other again. "

If you have to do an AMA to clear up the final sequence then that means you may have missed the mark.

The last 2 episodes really brought it back to the first 2 seasons. Wondering if Brendan Hunt would agree to a spinoff minus Jason Sudekis? There are several directions they could go, though I think it would lose the charm it had and become just another ensemble dramedy.

Yea i feel like the post show press tour was....not great. I think Nate actor was asked why Jade would like Nate and he said something about how insecure he was, like that's a draw.

I just started this show (haven’t had Apple TV for long) and I love it. I kept waiting for there to be some catch for him being so nice. And the catch never came. He’s honestly a good person. I haven’t enjoyed an entire cast of characters like this since Frazier.

I think my daughter would love this show, I wish they didn’t have the language and some of the themes they had, otherwise she’d be watching it.
