Ted Talk 2.0

Posted on Friday, July 23rd, 2021

Dave!The best show of last year... or any year ever... is Ted Lasso.

As shitty as 2020 was, the fact that it provided the ray of sunshine that is Ted means that I'll never be able to write it off completely. I fell in love with the show within minutes of watching, and have rewatched it many, many times. And to think I was going to give it a pass because I thought it was going to be a sports show!

Naturally, I was a bit nervous as to whether the second season would live up to the impossible heights set by the first. Much to my relief, the first epiode dropped today and is just as good as one could have hoped.

Part of that is due to a new character which could provide an interesting dynamic to the show... a sports psychologist named Dr. Fieldstone...

But the biggest part?

My favorite character in the show is Roy Kent. His character was pretty one-note though... until it wasn't. By the end of the first season he had lost what was most important to him but ended up with something that had potential to mean everything. The worry was that Roy would be relegated to abackground accessory for the show but, lucky for us, that wasn't the case at all. He's just as critical to the show as he's always been, and living his best life post-football...

But the best part? He's actually happy...

Can't ask for more than a happy Roy Kent!

One episode down. Eleven to go...

    Roy was immediately a favorite character for me when we started watching it a month or so ago. Something about his gruffness. I really hope he continues to be an important plotline. And I can’t wait to see where it goes with what was making him smile at the end. So much fun could be had there.

    Apparently, Brett Goldstein — the actor who portrays Roy Kent — was a writer for the show who ended up being asked to audition at the last minute and nailed the part.

    • Dave2 says:

      He was hired as a writer and, as they were working their way through the scripts, it suddenly dawned on him that he would love to play Roy. So he sent an audition tape to Sudeikis and said “If you don’t think I’m any good, then please forget you ever saw this tape and we’ll never speak of it again.” That apparently turned out well, and Roy Kent is easily one of the best characters to ever appear on television. I honestly don’t know if that would be true if somebody else was playing him.
