Jason Sudekis is great
Love him in SNL and his appearance in Sitcom Last man on Earth

AM up to date with this series and it's nice having a new episode to watch each week just the good old days of telly

It's a British-set series about football on Apple TV+.

Apple TV+ are offering a week's free access. You might only get one episode of Ted Lasso but it would be worth it. I cannot express how much I enjoyed this series.

So many subscription channels these days.
At least you have the choice whether to subscribe or not - unlike the BBC.

Try not paying that. I didn't pay mine for a month because their emails went into the spam folder.
No letter through the door, just emails.
I finally read them. The first one telling my license was due for renewal.
The second one telling me again.
The third one had a sarky title 'did you forget something?'
They progressed right up to threats of court and a £1000 fine.
Then finally, and what made me aware it was due was an actual letter telling me that I would be visited shortly by inspectors and if I didn't let them in they would get a court warrant to enter my premises.
If they find a TV or a computer or a tablet or anything able to receive or stream broadcasts from any station, I would be summonsed to court.
Surely this is against the law to assume emails have been read and move straight to court proceedings.

I've heard very good things about it, although curiously the football fans I know are less keen because they don't see it as a realistic depiction of football.

The whole ground chanting "Wanker, wanker, wanker..." at new (American) manager Ted, was pretty realistic in my opinion.

I've watched the first 3 episodes. Truly hooked.
Laugh out loud moments and great story arc.
Can't wait to watch the next one.

I'm glad you liked it - That's you, me and Mr Sunshine at least. I think it is rare to watch something and feel you are in such safe hands. If they set somthing up you know you will get a satisfying payoff. I get so pissed off with comedies and dramas where somthing happens or is mentioned, then is never reffered to again!
