Ted Lasso, an American college football coach, is unexpectedly recruited to coach a fictional English Premier League soccer team, AFC Richmond, despite having no experience coaching soccer. The team’s owner, Rebecca Welton, hires Lasso hoping he will fail as a means of exacting revenge on the team’s previous owner, her unfaithful ex-husband. However, Ted’s charm, personality, and humour begin to win over Rebecca, the team, and those who had been sceptical about his appointment.


We got season two, and it follows a similar structure to the first season. The actors and jokes still deliver on the spot as remarked before in the prior season review. But this season is far more serious, and more dramatic, following other supporting characters, dwelling in their psyche and what ticks them. A big storyline that we get to follow, almost more than Ted Lasso and his club, is Brett Goldstein’s Roy Kent. A character that goes from being the best in the club, and the league to retiring, becoming a home husband, expert commentator and reliving soccer for real in the end.

Ted Lasso has a big part to play in all of this, he has some issues around this season. However, Tartt, Kent and Kelly Jones’s triangular drama is another subplot added to the mix. Tartt, the douche and the hotkey player in the soccer club doesn’t know what to do with his life and we get to follow privately his destructive violent relationship with his father. Like the other season much of the series doesn’t take place on the field, it’s more of a character-driven series. A bunch of character, that tries to make Richmond win the season but can’t because of problems with either the players or the crew.

Hannah Waddingham makes an outstanding impression here, a season filled with emotions. Sudeikis’s attempt at being a dramatic character feels odd but adds a new nuance to the character Ted Lasso.  In the end, it feels like a season dedicated to Brett Goldstein and Roy Kent, because he is such a driving force in this season, and his humble effort of being a captain and leading role evolves nicely.

Lasso’s experience of teaching morals and being nice to people is another keystone to the plot, making the unsung and underdogs heard, and filled with positivity.  This has a tremendous effect on his team and emotionally, especially on a certain character – Nathan.
