The "Ted Lasso" Finale Set Up Season 3 Perfectly And We Can't Wait For It
“Who among us doesn't have that thing in their history…where they go, ‘I think I've dealt with that. I think I'm kind of past it.’ And then along comes a therapist who says, ‘Are you sure about that?’”
On today's episode of BuzzFeed Daily, we broke down the top pop culture headlines AND discussed the Ted Lasso finale. You can listen below or scroll down to read more about the interview!
So let's dive right into it! Recently we talked to Elamin Abdelmahmoud about Season 2 of Ted Lasso. Here's some of what we learned:
BuzzFeed Daily: Before we start talking about the finale, I want to know what do you think now about that initial backlash that the second season got in the beginning, where it was like, "Ted Lasso is too positive and that makes it negative," and stuff like that? I mean, what was that about? Do you think it died down? How do you feel about that?
BuzzFeed Daily: It is, and I knew that was going to happen. I think that's what bothers me, too. I knew from the second episode, since the therapist showed up, that we were going to deal with Ted eventually going into therapy and dealing with his trauma. I'm like, "Let's give this show a chance! That's clearly where they're going in a minute."
EM: Again, that's when you only make a certain number of episodes available. It's the only thing that critics can review, and I get it. But also, I think it was sort of trying to hang too much on what was available for people, because by the end of everything else, by the end of having watched everything, I think you come away with a different reaction.
