Great run. Solid 3 seasons. Regardless of last episode. Just a show that I will rewatch many times.

Oh my gosh that season ( series?) finale.
This show is just on another level.

Yea. Really.

As much as I'd like to see it continue as Roy Fucking Kent, if that's it then (mostly) great run.

I'm wondering if Rebecca's decision would have changed if she ran into the Amsterdam guy earlier. A fitting end if this was the series finale, even if it does leave some stories open for more.

While the first half of this season was not great, it was a very fitting finale to a very enjoyable series.

Barbara getting up and cheering the guy with the bloody nose, she turned out be a great addition

Great finale.

Only way it should have ended. It was perfect. Had bits of everything that made this show so great. 2nd all time series finales behind Six Feet Under. Just marvelous.

Re: Ted Lasso (Apple TV +) -- S: Jason Sudeikis -- From the creator of Scrubs

Seems like it was a pretty sad ending for Ted. They implied that things between the wife and the new guy were not great with how he was acting during the match but they never solidified if he was still around. So Ted ends up back home to an ex still dating their former couples counselor, coaching a youth soccer team. Rather than being the highest paid English football coach in the league and potentially getting better custody with his son. Even the look he gave in the last shot of the show was not great. He deserved a more directly happy ending rather than implied future happiness.

Loved it. I enjoyed the whole season, and I thought it was a great end to the series.

Re: Ted Lasso (Apple TV +) -- S: Jason Sudeikis -- From the creator of Scrubs

I'm going to have to watch this episode again... a few questions:

Spoiler:
1. who was that blonde woman in the stands? (she was with the guy that got hit in the face with ball). I know she was in a prior season but I can't place my finger on it.
2. during Beard's wedding scene (dream?), who was that guy in the final shot (big guy, pink shirt, and holding the baby?)

1. Was she someone we've seen before? I assumed just a random fan who was with the guy that got hit.

2. We had the same question. IIRC he's the guy who was chasing Beard around in the Beard After Hours episode last season. The BF of the woman in red he met at a club.

I don't know about her but the guy was John, the guy who dated Rebecca back in season 2.

We thought that was the guy who went out on a date with Rebecca and his wife/girlfriend

So now that Schitt's Creek and Ted Lasso are gone, is there another "Feel Good" show to take their places?

So now that the show ended I can learn things like: Rebecca Welton (Hannah Waddingham) was also Septa Unella in Game of Thrones. Shame on me for not knowing that. Also her first professional acting role was as stripper Jenny Turbot in an episode of the BBC comedy series Coupling (think Friends, but funny). This was one of my and my wife's favorite comedies, right up there with Ted Lasso.

Fantastic end to a fantastic run of a fantastic show. We need more positivity in our media and I’m so glad that Ted Lasso struck such a major chord.

Just try to be a good person and ask for help and forgive if you can - no better message than that.

This YouTuber points out quite a few Easter Eggs that I missed.

One connection I haven't heard mentioned is that the symbol of "Total Football" Johan Cruyff was nicknamed The Flying Dutchman. Ted "invented" Total Football (which saved Richmond's season) as Rebecca met what turned out to be her own flying Dutchman.
