Over Christmas, I went on a vacation with some of my family to the UK. We went to Edinburgh, London, and we even went to Loch Ness but the true highlight for me was going to Richmond. I loved Edinburgh for all of the Harry Potter stuff but having the combination of both Ted Lasso and The Sandman filming locations practically 10 ft from each other was amazing.
I love being in filming locations because I can just picture the scenes going on in my head while walking around. Two things that definitely stuck in my head were the relief the pub wasn’t shying away from being the Ted Lasso pub and the Sandman bench. I was relieved because I was afraid that I was going to be that annoying tourist they wanted to ignore but instead it seemed that they were proud of being the pub. I also noticed that they definitely moved the bench for filming the bench scene because we couldn’t get the perfect angle but it was close enough for me.
I was thinking about this recently so I wanted to share some of what I hope will happen and what I think will happen in season 3 of Ted Lasso.
Something explaining what Baz, Jeremy, and Paul do for a living that allows them to always be at the pub in the middle of the day.
An episode showing what Dani, Colin, and Zoreaux do on their days off (maybe even Richard, Bumbercatch, and Jan Maas).
One more scene with Tommy aka Ussie kid.
I know a lot of people want Ted and Rebecca together(which I’m fine with if it does happen) but I’d like it better if they stay just close friends since we have so few non-sexual male/female friendships in media I think it’d be a good example to have.
And the most important is that I need to know what Coach Beard’s first name is and if Beard is really his last name or is it just a nickname because he has a beard?!?!?!?!?!
The most obvious is that Richmond will win it all.
Roy and Keeley will be broken up at the beginning but will get back together by the end of the show. The classic “if you love something set it free and if it was meant to be it will come back” situation.
Nate will have a redemption arc that will include him inevitably failing at being a head coach which will cause him to hit rock bottom and then Ted will help him redeem himself.
If you’re confused you suck and need to watch Ted Lasso right now! I don’t want to spoil any big plot points but it’s super fun to watch! So first I’ll tell you about the basic plot, it’s about Ted Lasso an American football coach who becomes a coach of a British soccer team. Yup it’s as problematic for Ted as you might think but he never lets it get to him. That’s the best part of Ted Lasso is his optimism in all he goes through. Which is surprising when he has to deal with an entire country and his team calling him a wanker for half the season. The best part of this show is the characters!
Obviously Ted Lasso= the optimistic coach
Coach Beard= Ted’s quite friend and co-coach that possesses all of Teds soccer knowledge and much more
Nate the Great= the kit manager who knows more then people think
Roy Kent= the team captain whose dialogue is 80% the word fuck
Rebecca= the team owner whose going thru some stuff
Oh and you can’t forget Keeley= whose famous for being semi-famous
Forget any plot I’d watch this show over and over again just to see these 6 characters going about their lives because they’re so entertaining.
Now I know your probably wondering but where can I watch this show thats super funny and entertaining to watch? Thats the sucky part its an AppleTv+ show so you have to pay for it or find it elsewhere *wink wink* but thats up to you.
