    I guess my only qualm with the episode is that it felt like the Covid related production restrictions were quite transparent? Whether it was with the use of more outdoor scenes, the use of extra CGI in the opening sequence or the lack of extras in the scenes at eateries. Although of course these are extenuating circumstances.

    Nah, you’re right. In some ways I actually think some of the shots are a little too clever, a show with less $$$ might not have employed overhead shots for a celebrating team or CGI’d in audience and might have just done closer shots in the eateries.

    (I also noticed there was a tendency to social distance out Jeremy Swift and (I think) Annette Badland (Mae the barmaid) both who are 60+, which I can’t be angry about)

    I can’t fault them too much for it because they were after all filming during a lockdown over here as well but some of the scenes did feel a bit unrealistically quiet for the show’s setting.

    I actually didn’t notice that! Must be why Higgins moved offices lmao (I’m obviously jk hehe).

    The show slipped right back into rhythm and has lots of potential directions it can take. Highlights were the discussion of the yips, Roy’s profane rant about taking the pundit job offer, and Rebecca’s monologue about intimacy being all about leaving yourself open to attack. The whole thing was just very thoughtfully written and perfectly acted by an ensemble that has gelled in a very short amount of time.

    Oh yeah, Rebecca’s monologue about dating was sooooo good, Hannah Waddingham is just doing her thing once again.

    Omg I think “Lavender” was my favourite episode of the entire series so far. So many good jokes I was spluttering, and great performances especially from Juno Temple, Brett Goldstein, Toheeb Jimoh, Phil Dunster and Jeremy Swift. Those three guys down the pub and their publican always crack me up. Bravo, excellent writing.

    Brett Goldstein is winning the season for me so far. He is just so good.

    For a show based in the UK, I wasn’t the immediate onslaught of Fleur East hosting a Love Island-esque show followed by a interview with Phil & Holly.

    Hannah Waddingham was a sneaky criminal this week stealing the episode with Rebecca’s rant about therapy.

    I choked when this happened lmfao.

    “Do the Right-est Thing” was a bit of a let-down after last week’s superb “Lavender”. Was it the writing or the editing? The girl playing Nora was miscast and the character wasn’t needed in the episode. This episode just felt a bit cloying and self consiscious tbh, trying too hard to be an episode of Ted Lasso. Otoh I quite like the issue being set up around sport, activism and sponsorship, even if it’s blatantly clear how it will be resolved.

    Biggest laugh came from the pile on of Jamie, with the Dutch player just shouting “I don’t like you!”, getting straight to the point.

    For me, this episode highlighted how the show “Americanizes” soccer in a bad way.

    I loved the episode, Rebecca’s storyline was off but i liked the activism, is something they weren’t doing and something that needs to be said, especially in the football business, which can bring a toxic environment to everyone related to.

    Sam is so cute and pure, we need to protect him.
