Ted Lasso’s darkest moments are its most relatable

Critics of the show Ted Lasso have long complained that its cloyingly sweet characters and never-fail protagonist are, to put it nicely, unwatchable TV. 

Admittedly, if you only watch Ted Lasso for a few minutes each week and catch Ted giving an upbeat pep-talk to one of his players or peers, you might begin to suspect that the show is all fluff. Or rather, that Ted Lasso as a character is so saccharine in the way he methodically wins people over that he becomes unbearable instead of endearing. 

To appreciate Ted Lasso you don’t have to relate to the eponymous lead character’s successes, try instead to relate to his failures.
