Intense First Look at Ted Lasso Season 3

Ted Lasso quickly earned praise and acclaim, with season one becoming the most Emmy-nominated freshman comedy series in history, landing top honors and awards.

In addition to its Emmy accolades, the series has been recognized with an esteemed Peabody Award, a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series Award for Sudeikis.

It has also landed three Critics Choice Awards, including Best Comedy Series, Best Actor in a Comedy Series for Sudeikis, and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Hannah Waddingham, sweeping all categories in which the series was nominated.

Additionally, The Writers Guild of America crowned Ted Lasso with honors for both Best Comedy and Best New Series.  

"Ted Lasso" stars Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso, an American football coach hired to manage a British soccer team—despite having no experience.

But what he lacks in knowledge, he makes up for with optimism, underdog determination...and biscuits.

Ted Lasso Quotes

Sharon: So, how did the drop-off go?
Ted: For me or for him? 'Cause I think those are two very different answers. But no, I'm fine, I think. I don't know. I just feel kinda guilty about the little guy flying all by himself again, you know?
Sharon: I understand, Ted. But children are resilient. And a sense of autonomy at Henry's age is good for him.
Ted: No, I know. That's true. I remember being left at school when I was Henry's age. I ended up helping our custodian, Mr. Maher, clean half the school until my dad remembered to come pick me up. He gave Mr. Maher cash for babysitting me. I showed up to school the next day and Mr. Maher gave me the money as payment for the work I'd done. So then I used that money to buy him a thank-you gift, but never got the chance to give it to him, 'cause, well, he ended up getting hit by a train.
Sharon: Oh, wow. I didn't see that coming.
Ted: Yeah, well, neither did Mr. Maher.

I understand. I just don't think Ms. Welton will have a whole lot to say about the unfair advantage of being a female owner in sports. Thank you. f--k you, Joe Rogan.
