    True or not that is the most un-Ted Lasso way to start a comment section. Both grammatically as well as in it’s general lack of positive energy.

    It is, however, the proper Led Tasso method...

    Probably. It takes a while to appreciate quality over quantity

    Season 1 was absolutely brilliant and charming. Season 2 falls into the "not bad" but "fails relative to expectations" category. Too bad, since I thought that this was a rare show that could pull an S2 > S1. 

    Ah, the law of averages...

    It's a cute show, but way overpraised.

    Who forced William to write an article on Ted Lasso?  What kind of duress was he put under for this to happen?  The horrors of workplace coercion.  Next thing you know there’ll be an #AppleInsiderToo movement!  😏
