In a world full of heist series, thrillers, mystery, fantasy and the struggle for the throne, good comedies have become a relatively rare currency, which helped Ted Lasso series shine amid fierce competition and prolific drama production from various electronic platforms.
The series revolves around the promising American football coach Ted Lasso , who begins events with his arrival in Britain to coach the Richmond team in the English Football League, to become the object of admiration and ridicule from everyone.
The Ted Lasso series is a comedy series whose first season was released in 2020 with ten episodes, after which it gained great popularity and criticism, which prompted the Apple TV + platform to renew it for two seasons, so the second season was released this year and awaits the third release next year.
The comedy of the series for the first season relied on two main aspects; The first is the entry of an American football coach who does not know anything about football to the strongest league in the world, and the second is the paradoxes between the English and American cultures, in addition to Ted’s unique design, full of vitality and optimism in an often exaggerated way.
The comedy in the series varied between situation comedy, which relied heavily on the general circumstances of the event and the composition of the distinguished characters, and verbal comedy, which relied heavily on Ted himself and his speaking style, in addition to his extensive cinematic library of films, which he continues to borrow similes from in a very successful manner throughout the course of the year. The two seasons.
The comedy of the series is not the kind that always aspires to make the viewer laugh, but the main interest of the series is to keep the smile on the viewers’ face for the longest possible period of the episode, which is what the series achieved with resounding success, except in rare moments in which the drama of the characters emerged in a way that it is difficult to keep the smile and enough To wipe your tears only.
The dramatic side of the series was wonderful and was able to provide the required balance with the comedic side with success, through which we were able to explore the characters and their development with the development of events.
Although the main event of the series is a football-related event, the viewer does not need to know anything about football, as the series revolves around the stories of its characters, not Ted’s path in the English Premier League. All possible emotions whether happy or sad.
