Ted Lasso season 3 did not quite cut it for many, and it’s unimaginable that such a hit show would relegate itself to a poor review. As die-hard fans of the award-winning comedy-drama, it will be against the code not to point out the loopholes. After all, fans are often the best critics. So far, this latest season has shown that Ted Lasso‘s co-creator and lead character Jason Sudeikis did not task himself expected. With about three episodes to the end of season 3, it is barely giving the suspense-filled moment and hit-show content. Instead, fans are saddled with an amateur-like plot struggling to combine the characters for a wholesome story. There are confusing roles and the desperation to force this mumbo jumbo on viewers. Let’s glide through a handful of reviews.
Can’t Deal With Plot Overhaul on Ted Lasso Season 3— It’s a Lazy Job
It’s high time Ted Lasso‘s co-creator, Jason Sudeikis, called an emergency meeting to address the plot. It feels like a piece of jargon a wannabe writer put together. Season 3 is mostly branded by unending and boring episodes, thereby watering down the storyline. Also, there is the most visible of it all— bad plotting. Stringing closely is the lack of putting together a wholesome story. There are scenes and stories flying around without making real sense. This is heartbreaking, especially since fans were gifted with an unmatched drama in its first and second seasons.
Recall that watching the series about an American coach who moved to coach a UK soccer team in its first two seasons was euphoric. It hinged its story on a very realistic and important societal phenomenon. It’s hard to forget the cultural phenomenon and representation of mental health which gained unparalleled empathy.
Before Ted Lasso acquired a poor review, it blessed us with an immeasurable moment of delight rooted in effortless wit. Indeed, it scored the best goals of the most talented strikers— gaining a Fandom full of loyalists and, of course, being recognized by the industry. Ted Lasso has gone on to win an Emmy Award. But what does the future hold for this one-time hit comedy show? Well, from the fans’ point of view, it’s dreading what storyline they will infuse next to highlight how much they are underperforming on the field and even failing to score goals—with us.
Review on Ted Lasso Season 3 Gets ThumbsDown For Trying To Level Up
“Don’t try too hard, you just might flop,” is what the showrunner needs to hear at this point. It is almost impossible to believe that under the watch of Ted Lasso co-creator Jason Sudeikis, there are no original storylines. The show is merely trying so hard to recreate past scenes in a different way and by changing the cast. Their craze for wanting to have another Liverpool-set episode from the season is almost over the edge! This time, it was renamed Rebecca Great Again. Ironically, there was nothing great about the punchline except that the senses were exceptionally long.
A great review for that episode would point at the fairytale-like plot. It follows Rebecca, played by Hannah Waddington, meeting her knight in shining armor Roy—Brett Goldstein. Ted Lasso gives the appropriate soccer setting, but in the end, it becomes overwhelming. It cuts across as a fictional tale rather than a story and representation of our world. Despite the love in the air, there is a selfish agenda by writers to make the characters fulfilled rather than relay a perfect story.
Spilling of Players on the Field
There are too many of them in Ted Lasso season 3, so don’t blame this honest review! It’s not strange to see a handful of the skilled and funny cast who know their onions when it comes to role-playing in Ted Lasso. But what was questionable was the transition of guest stars to the everyday faces. At first, it was Trent Crimm (James Lance), a sports journalist.
This worked magic for most viewers, but it soon turned sour. In the case of Juno Temple’s Keeley, who is with a PR firm, Anthony Head’s Rupert, and Maximilian Osinski’s Zava. There were also tons of footballers on the field, girlfriends, and PR agents. These characters have overstayed their welcome, and it even makes it more difficult to navigate the focus on them because they are a handful. This is only setting up Ted Lasso season 3 for an unfinished plot which is unlike previous seasons.
Kind Of Exonerating a Villain
All along, there has been this beautifully crafted story of Nick Mohammed’s Nate being the bad guy. Last season he made public news out of Ted’s mental health struggles. He also berated the players while claiming Ted was bad at parenting.
However, the kit-man who metamorphosed into a coach and has been the villain of the story is now getting a pass. Ted Lasso‘s season 3 did not tell the viewers why they should love Nate. All that was given was his new life, including a new nondescript girlfriend. Jade, who doesn’t have a personality, was suddenly attached to Nate. But this was simply to detach him from the other cast.
With such a season 3 review, we would not blame Ted Lasso‘s Jason Sudeikis for saying, “This isn’t the way any of them want to go out” about the characters. The co-creator is not sure if there will be a fourth season. All he is doing is hoping Ted’s team has a fourth year. But we will see if that happens.
