Critic Reviews for Ted Lasso Season 1

All Critics (65) | Top Critics (26)

Ted Lasso is breezy and fun and full of heart, but its easy escapisms are also uneasy ones. They are mordant, but they are mournful too.

Dec 3, 2020 | Full Review…

You can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs and as Jason Sudeikis' Ted Lasso rounds into its final two episodes, doubters such as myself end up with more and more yolk on their face.

Oct 6, 2020 | Full Review…

On Ted Lasso, American innocence, humility, and heroism are all alive and well-and you don't have to consciously notice any of that for it to bring you comfort.

Sep 30, 2020 | Full Review…

Ted Lasso is a pleasure, which took me by surprise... Turns out, it's a sweetly cheerful comedy, and the Ted Lasso character, a dumb-American buffoon in the ads, has been made into a big-hearted, optimistic, even charming guy.

Aug 19, 2020 | Full Review…

"Ted Lasso" could benefit from a bit more from Keeley and from trimming a few minutes from most episodes, but Lawrence crafts such a welcoming space it's hard to complain too much about overfilling it.

Aug 17, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The story's gooey nature is fair game, but it's nearly maddening by how unfunny it is, specifically being based around someone the world could use more of.

Aug 14, 2020 | Full Review…

The series is serendipitous, the kind of surprisingly sweet, abruptly funny show that could easily be added to one's happy place rewatch rotation.

Apr 18, 2021 | Full Review…

The first season is simply fabulous. [Full review in Spanish]

Mar 2, 2021 | Full Review…

On screen as Ted, Sudeikis is wholly enjoyable, despite the character being folksy to what could be the point of annoyance.

Feb 21, 2021 | Full Review…

The most important part of Ted Lasso is its heart.

Feb 8, 2021 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

It will make you laugh and even though not everything works out perfectly and some people are still disappointed, ultimately Ted Lasso is uplifting.

Dec 3, 2020 | Full Review…

It isn't exactly a family show, but its wonderful first season makes for the kind of easygoing, big-hearted watch that constitutes ideal viewing among adults seeking something to watch with their parents, especially around the holidays.

    Ted Lasso is an awesome series with great humor, lovable characters, and a feel-good underdog element to it.
  • May 07, 2021
    Clever humor and heartwarming moments in the perfect balance.
  • May 05, 2021
    Great show. strongly recommend
  • May 04, 2021
    Brilliant easy comedy. Covers accurately the disdain of the English for Americans, as well as the can do, irrepressible American spirit that doesn't let anything get it down. Comedy in every other line and all the actors are ideally cast and give flawless performances.
  • Apr 26, 2021
    Lovely. Heart-warming.
  • Apr 26, 2021
    So wonderful to have a show that is so "nice". The comedy is all built around the premise of a coach who is getting people to see the best in themselves and others. Very uplifting.
  • Apr 12, 2021
    Surprising show much better than pretty much anyone would have thought. great writing - characters that actually have a story arc . Just watch it, it will make you smile.
  • Apr 09, 2021
    Truly, a tv show for the most simple of the simpletons. Naive, tear-jerking soap-opera-like emotion fest. So Full of kindness and cathartic moments that it beggars belief that any critic in the right mind would consider this anything but a phony chicken soup for the souls. It's not complete rubbish, but it's like the soccer club it portrays, mediocre. Stale, cliche humour or what is used in its stead. Why would a football coach in the right mind go overseas to train a team in a sport he does know squat about? And it had to be a texan - otherwise the cultural contrast would not have been so profound. The premise is idiotic but it is the ending (not hope) that kills the show. I guess producers and writers are having a harder and harder time to come up with decent ideas.

    This show is perfection. The humor is witty and the drama is sincere. Vulnerable and down right hilarious from the stars to the side characters. Outlandish and grounded. Jason Sudeikis is refreshing and optimistic and just outright incredible as the former Division1 football coach turn Premier League Manager Ted Lasso.

    I can't get enough of this show. These characters have my heart! What a fantastic story and acting. I savor each episode and finish feeling content, but looking forward to the next one. It is well written and well-acted! This show alone is worth the apple subscription.
