Ted Lasso Pod Talk!

The Dubfeat Variety Hour

25-09-2023 • 1 hr 5 mins

COHERENCY RETURNED! Jason, Luis, and myself have an eloquent conversation (okay fine, a semi-raunchy but still solid convo) about the great show Ted Lasso. With our combined busy schedule, it took some time for us to sit and break down Lasso, which we were all itching to do after the finale. That being said, everything wasn't as fresh, hence the playback of the the show in the background as we talked. One heavily featured episode playing (and distracting us) in this pod was Season 3 - Episode 11, Mom City, easily a top 5 contender for one of the best episodes of Ted Lasso, in addition to the Coach Beard episode, too.

We attempt to dissect/understand  the writer's strike (which is at 145 days!) toward the end of the pod.  We also put our anticipation for Oppenheimer on the pod, as we were finally in a position where our schedules allowed for a group viewing. Semi-related, I was watching What We Do In The Shadows and caught a Ted Lasso nod in the show. They had a banner that said “BELIEVE” which was on a blackboard. As always, sit back or keeping moving and enjoy us breaking down one of the most feel-good shows of the last two decades.

As usual, we discuss a multitude of other shows/movies among Ted Lasso, which includes (but not limited to):

Freaks and Geeks
Platonic (on Apple TV)
The Boys
Blue Mountain State
Breaking Bad
Better Call Saul
Scrubs
The Dark Knight Rises
The Two Escobars (30 for 30 Documentary)
Manhattan (TV Series)
Judas and the Black Messiah
Black Klansman


Final Note: One of the episodes related fleshing out of Ted Lasso's history was the show establishing that Lasso's father committed suicide.
