The secret of happiness? Be more like Ted Lasso
The Guardian says Ted Lasso has changed my life. It’s a comedy series on Apple TV+ about a coach of an American football college team who, improbably, is taken on as manager of a Premier League football team in London. Ted, played brilliantly by Jason Sudeikis, knows nothing about our kind of football. If you can get over the absurdity of the premise, it soon becomes funny and entertaining. But getting deeper into it, I sensed there might be something more profound about the show.
Ted, notwithstanding his cluelessness about the game, apparent naivety about everything and endless stream of corny jokes, somehow gets on. His players and the press start out savaging him, but he manages to win them over. He does so largely through sheer goodness of heart. He’s always smiling, patient and kind, rising to none of the nastiness thrown his way. In its own quiet way, it’s beautiful to watch.
