Ted Lasso

I'll confess, I was late to the Ted Lasso hype but all things happen for a reason and I'm so grateful that Ted Lasso came into my life when it did. This show is truly the sitcom equivalent of a warm hug. Ted Lasso is known for its relentless optimism and positive outlook on life with the title character embodying these qualities, and both his and the show's unwavering positivity is contagious. In a world filled with darker and more cynical shows, Ted Lasso provides a refreshing dose of positivity. The show doesn't shy away from exploring complex issues with every character having their own struggles which allows the show to champion themes of empathy, kindness, and understanding. These stories have a natural ability to tug at your heartstrings. It's not afraid to dive into emotional moments that leave a lasting impact on viewers and create conversations. I have never before seen a show address mental health issues, including anxiety and depression, in a such sensitive and respectful manner that makes the stories being told resonate so strongly. While we might not yet know what the future holds for Ted Lasso beyond its third season, Ted Lasso has succeeded in doing what it set out to do from the beginning: bringing people together, promoting positivity, and bringing a whole lot of joy and love into the world.
