Ted Lasso — Apple TV+
I’ll be honest…I didn’t think this show would be any good. It looked like a rehashing of the old cliché that Americans think soccer is dumb. This preconceived notion couldn’t be farther from the truth. Jason Sudeikis is a college football coach from Kansas who somehow inherits the position of managing a prestigious soccer team in England. Knowing nothing about the sport, he connects with both his players and the team owner on a personal level. This show is not only funny, but filled with considerable heart. It also is fantastic from the standpoint that it’s exclusively filmed in London. Even if you aren’t a soccer fan, you’ll grow to love Ted Lasso.
