    I do agree that his rage doesn’t make sense as of now, don’t want to spoiler (this site really needs a spoiler thing), but what was the point of the “dumb Americans” thing

    That said it’s pretty obvious that his rage was building up since ever, the Roy Kent incident was probably the breaking point.

    Please! These gays, they're trying to murder me!

    Nate’s downfall was set in motion way early on 💀

    Quite literally from the first episode of season 2 lol.

    Just watched Season 1 and 2 back to back. What a terrific show. Enjoyed both seasons although Season 2 did seem a bit uneven at times and to me the Beard centric episode didn’t work and was boring.

    In terms of Season 1 I would have given nominations to Sudeikis, Waddingham, Temple, Dunster, Swift, Goldstein and Mohammed. Wouldn’t have nominated Hunt and Dunster deserved his place for his very realistic portrayal of Jamie Tartt. Agree with the wins for Sudeikis, Golstein and Waddingham.

    This season I’d give nominations to Sudeikis, Waddingham, Temple, Goldstein,  Golstein, Mohammed and Jimoh. Temple and Goldstein are win worthy and I really hope Temple wins. Not sure Sudeikis will win again as he wasn’t front and centre like he was in Season 1 (and Bill Hader is returning to his category). Swift has a lot less to do this season and I don’t find Hunt that good or his character that interesting.

    Intrigued to see where it heads in Season 3. Many characters have had significant character development already including Rebecca, Ted, Nate and Jamie. I quite liked the Nate villain storyline but feel he may eventually end up back at AFC Richmond.

    I guess I never gave my full season thoughts so I’ll give a short little compilation of my thoughts. I thought that, on the whole, this was a step up from season one, which suffered from having to build the world and set the tone in the early episodes before it really settled into a groove later on. From the first episode, this season felt much more assured, which led to character growth and development that was really welcome to see. This is such a well-balanced ensemble and it felt like everyone got a chance to shine and came to play. Obviously, some players stood out more than others but this show has figured out how to pair up players and squeeze some creative juice out of their collaboration, a sure sign that a comedy is feeling confident. While there were some lowlights, the show also hit some highs in terms of pure comedy and emotional heft. Jason Sudeikis arguably was less prominent than season one thanks to the expanded ensemble, but I thought he was overall stronger in season two thanks to the story allowing Ted to really open up. Hannah Waddingham similarly took a step back with a less obvious character arc, but made it enticing nonetheless and probably had the strongest single episode of any character with “No Weddings and a Funeral.” Brett Goldstein and Juno Temple clearly benefitted from Sudeikis and Waddingham taking a step back. Goldstein was even more assured in his performance this season, balancing the stereotypical elements of Roy that made him a fan favorite in season one while adding layers of insecurity that make him a much more interesting and worthwhile character. Temple was given much more to play with this season outside of the Rebecca-Keeley friendship and even the Roy-Keeley relationship. Brendan Hunt is giving a performance I find good in small doses and he actually does elicit genuine belly laughs from me with just a glance, but “Beard After Hours” ultimately revealed this is a character and an actor I’m not really invested in. Jeremy Swift was given almost nothing to do, but is still a welcome presence and can actually be the heart of the show when the writing is there for him. Phil Dunster arguably had less screentime in season two, but a much bigger impact with a more nuanced and human performance. I do wish we had gotten more Jamie in season two, and I loved his character development, though I wish his end-of-season arc had been more focused on his relationship with his dad versus his feelings toward Keeley, since that was underdeveloped while his “daddy issues” are much more prominent. I hope that’ll be his driving force in season three. Nick Mohammed was definitely given a huge task in creating this villain character, and the writing didn’t always land for me, but Mohammed’s performance did, if that makes sense. He did a 180 from the performance that made Nate a fan-favorite character in season one, but when you got moments of seeing who Nate really is and why he turns by season’s end, there was a much deeper and more heartbreaking performance there than we could’ve guessed would have been the case for Nate. Sarah Niles was a nice addition and she definitely grew on me by season’s end. Her impact was felt even if her performance didn’t necessarily steal the show, but I completely believe that was the whole point. Toheeb Jimoh is the stealth rising star of this season, blossoming into leading man potential before our eyes, even beyond just a romantic storyline with the series’ most prominent female character. Jimoh was a lot more assured and charismatic than I think anyone expected. Also just have to shout out Harriet Walter, who gave a great performance and proved an outstanding sparring partner with Waddingham. The show was a bit flashier this season, certainly in episodes like “Rainbow” or “Beard After Hours” that required those flourishes. The writing did a good job of navigating this “middle” season if you are following the 3-season structure that has apparently been set up here. Overall, I still found this to be a great season of television, weird backlash be damned and I’m excited to see what the set up is for the “final” season. I wouldn’t mind if the show ended with its original ending next year, but selfishly I could spend many more years in this world, a testament to the writers and cast.

    Nate has always been a little bitch, I wasn’t surprised.

    I definitely felt this was a step back from season one. Too many forced attempts at what felt a lot more organic in season one. And the Nate storyline just didn’t work for me. The full heel turn didn’t bother me as much as how quickly and unconvincingly it happened.

    So I’m guessing a mid-September release.

    Have a great day if you see this!

    I think if Apple/Warners can get new episodes dropping during Emmy voting in mid-late August they will, but as Ted Lasso is one of the few comedies that requires visual effects post work, that may not be possible.
