Twelve weeks after its first episode, the second season of ‘Ted Lasso’ has ended. And how. The series has kept its essence, but adding a deeper touch to its plot and revealing intimacies of several of its characters. The final colophon confirms that the series is still one of the best that Apple TV + has in its catalog.
Elements of “soap opera”, but well applied
From here I can mention spoilers from the first two seasons of ‘Ted Lasso’, so read this article at your own risk.
The first season focused on showing the quirky character of good old Ted, and the second season adds that personal touch by getting into some personal lives. When I had four or five chapters I thought “careful: this series cannot sin of becoming a soap opera more. “And it is that sometimes humor is no longer present to address personal and sentimental situations.
However, I think ‘Ted Lasso’ hasn’t screwed up doing this. There may be certain episodes in which it is wrong to stray too much the essence of the series, but that has allowed episodes like Beard’s Little Great Night Odyssey after a disastrous match. A parenthesis that is a gem. We must also mention situations such as Rebecca, who ends up questioning a relationship with Sam after the Bantr application joined them on a date.
And what about the final chapter, in which we discover that Nate is not as good a person as some imagined. It is precisely what begins to lay the foundation for season three, already confirmed: the rival team has been acquired by Rebecca’s ex-husband, and Nate becomes her coach and future rival of Ted. The war is served.
The second season of Ted Lasso changes from the first, but it manages to maintain its quality even getting into the feelings of the main characters. That may make it a little less original, but there are its episodes to show that it is still the best series on Apple TV + and one of the best on the current scene. We will wait impatiently for the third season.
