I’m interested. I’d do it for free tbh. Obsessed with tv and films. Love this site, also I’m from the UK, not sure if that’s an issue.November 15, 2020 at 6:06 pm #1203839752
Since Roy Keane was clearly a real inspiration for Roy Kent. Where there any historical figures who served as inspiration for other characters on the show?
For example, is Richard Beard a stand-in for Peter Taylor? Brian Clugh;s loyal right-hand man and assistant coach, or is there a current/former footballer who was a specific inspiration for Jamie Kent.
Would be great to see if there are real life inspirations for characters like Higgins and Nathan.
Also, we got to see the chant for Roy Kent in the season finale, next season, will we get to see chants for more AFC Richmond players?
and finally, if Rebecca Welton were given the opportunity to accept a billion pound financial takeover, like Newcastle United. Would she accept it, or would she now be loyal to the club?November 4, 2020 at 12:30 pm #1203819069
As a Brit who loves football, this show was perfect for me and I absolutely loved it. I even forgave the show suggesting Crystal Palace could win a game 6-0 (Although the conclusion more than made up for it).
I have to ask, since the show is presumably set in the 2019-20 Premier League season, and of course there are 20 teams in a the league, which real-life premier league team did AFC Richmond replace?
Also has there been any consideration in producing an AFC Richmond kit? I would absolutely love to get one.
And finally, which current premier league managers would Ted Lasso get along with/form a rivalry with? I imagine him and Jurgen Klopp would click instantly and become good friends whereas Jose Mourinho would initially hate Ted and would have to grow to respect him.October 30, 2020 at 12:15 pm #1203811755
Americans is still great, but I recently started Ted Lasso and it’s really hooking me. The first episode is very good, but there’s a noticeable improvement in the second. It’s the best I’ve ever seen Jason Sudeikis, whose performance is so effortlessly likable, and he gets to show some truly good dramatic talents as well. The supporting cast is great as well, with the absolute standout being Hannah Waddingham. I can definitely see this being a solid contender, as buzz is growing and we know that Apple pushes hard based on last time. Also I had recently watched (and in the case of a few rewatched) the prime Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episodes (2-10), which are simply marvelous. The best segment being their The Shining parody. The early years of that show were just so damn good.
I just watched Ted Lasso too. Binged the whole thing, loved it. Fully on the Sudeikis Train now. Waddingham and Temple are so great too. It’s just such an effortlessly likeable show and that ending just leaves me hungry for Season 2. Thrilled that Apple have already renewed the show for 2 more seasons.October 30, 2020 at 7:27 am #1203811114
I hadn’t even heard of this show until last night, I saw the premise and was immediately hooked. As a Brit who loves football (it’s not called Soccer btw). I’m over halfway through the show and I absolutely love this. This is officially my favourite AppleTV show. I feel the same way that I felt when I first watched Barry, not that they’re particularly similar shows but that they were shows that felt like they written just for me.
Sudeikis is amazing as is Juno Temple and Hannah Waddingham. There’s a lot of references and inside jokes I understand as i’m both a TV and football lover. I’m all in on this show. It’s so wholesome and likeable and just a great watch all round. Love the cast, i’m absolutely rooting for this comes awards season.October 29, 2020 at 3:04 pm #1203809934
Really great two-parter, as a UK fan of the show, i’m thrilled that we’re getting this season weekly this time around. I usually end up waiting for the season to finish then binge it when it comes out on Amazon Prime.
I briefly saw a comment above mentioning the ending, so before the episode started I was expecting something but the show kept me so engaged I forgot about it and then when the ending hits… Damn. This show gets me every time.
Like other people have mentioned, love how they’ve handled the protests and quarantine. Really can’t wait to see how this season goes and I wish we had more Pamela Adlon in everything but if this is the final appearance of her character, i’m glad they gave her some kind of ending as opposed to just having Randall find another therapist off-screen.October 14, 2020 at 1:51 pm #1203778837
Honestly, Season 8 is such a rough ending, and them bringing back one of the show’s original head writers. I say bring it on. If they manage to pull it off and give Dexter a satisfying send-off. That’s sound by me, and if they fail, who cares? The show’s legacy had already been somewhat tainted. I don’t have an issue with them bringing back that shows that had a disappointing ending.October 13, 2020 at 10:46 pm #1203776987

The Sopranos was second in so many categories. This was very tough.October 7, 2020 at 8:56 am #1203765167
It’s tough. Based on this season, Linney. But the overall show, i’d go with Garner. But since it’s just for the latest season, i’ll go with Linney. She blew me away in those last few episodes.October 7, 2020 at 7:42 am #1203765015
I’m currently halfway through season 2 on my re-watch after 10-14 years. I would have been like 10-12 when I last watched this show, it’s much harder to get access to in the UK. Dewey is such a scene stealer, in the episode with the attractive babysitter, he had me in stitches.
The only shame with Malcolm in the Middle is how so many great supporting characters come and go. But I guess the idea is that it’s life and people just pop i and out of your lives. In Francis’ storylines, I miss Stanley. He was great in Season 1. Also, the kids are so well cast in this show, they make casting child actors look easy. Even the classmates like the Krelboynes are great.October 5, 2020 at 6:43 am #1203760696
Interesting timing this thread being revived, just started bingeing Malcolm in the Middle again last night, almost finished Season 1. Haven’t seen it since I was like 10 and man do I miss this show. It’s just as great as I remember, it’s similar to the Simpsons in the sense that the whole family could watch it, didn’t matter if you were 8 or 38, everyone in my family loved it.
Kaczmarek and Cranston are even better in this than I remembered. How they never won an Emmy for their roles here, i’ll never understand. At least Cranston got his due with Breaking Bad.October 5, 2020 at 6:35 am #1203760687

I loved Season 3, I thought the balance between comedy and drama was much stronger and I really grew to love the characters, especially Joel, who has come a long way since Season 1.
The drama elements of the show never truly clicked with me in seasons 1 and 2 but this time round, I was gripped and I still find myself thinking about that season 3 finale.September 23, 2020 at 3:49 am #1203729343
So glad to see this is coming back. Hopefully it can make an awards bounce back given the fact that a lot of major emmy shows will likely be skipping a year. But also, I just really enjoy the show, have grown to love the characters and can’t wait to see them back on my tv screen.September 20, 2020 at 5:35 pm #1203721627
I was really rooting for The Good Place or What We Do in the Shadows there but admittedly I still haven’t seen Schitt’s Creek. Man that looks like a mistake. I really didn’t think we’d see a sweep like this coming
