What’s a Mediasplode? It’s a monthly special edition show in which we talk about what we are enjoying in media outside of the realm of comic books. It’s like our All Media Year End Round-Up but in a shorter, monthly format.

“Theme from Ted Lasso”

  1. I saw the trailer for Ted Lasso and thought I’m not watching that in a million years. But it wore me down and I’m so glad it did. I loved it. The football stuff is appalling, it’s so unconvincing, Footie rarely looks good in drama. But that is the only criticism I could have. It’s so sweet and loveable.

    Like Ron as soon as the end came I felt it had nowhere else to go; with everyone on Ted’s side where’s your conflict. But maybe there’s more to come from Anthony Head.

    Great stuff recommended for all.

  2. The only thing holding me back from watching Ted Lasso is where it is streaming. Hard to justify getting into another serivce when I barely watch everything I want to get to on the services to which I currently subscribe.

    Good Lord Bird is fantastic IMO. I don’t really hear anyone talking about it.
