I liked Keeley better in the first season, but I feels the same way about most of the non-Ted characters that were promoted to main characters this season.

It feels like the writers have a spreadsheet where they need to write 7 minutes for each character a week, so we get endless stories about Royís niece and whatever boring thing Keeley is doing this week.
The show just feels watered down now compared to the first season.l, itís still good but I find myself skipping through it more.

The changes in season 2 feels like they are planning for the show to run for a long time, so that they can do Ted Lasso without the main character.

I liked the first two episodes of Foundation, but it barely has anything to do with the book, given how much new content they have added to make it more interesting to the casual viewer.

This was definitely the best episode of Ted Lasso season 2 for me.

I want Roy to hook up with the teacher mostly because his relationship with Keeley is so utterly dull, both characters have suffered from the show being watered down this season.

Ted Lasso has a Glee level downturn.

I liked the finale. Overall I think Ted's storyline has been really good, and Nate's turn to the dark side was also well done.

But I wish the writers realized that not every character needs to be forced into every episode if you don't have anything for them to do. Higgings is just there to throw out badly written dialogue, when I wish they would just use him when they had something good.

Overall I was disappointed in this season, but I hope the next one gets back on track.

Iíve only watched the first episode and Iíd say no, unless you really want to see him cosplay a god fearing cop.

Doesn't he get killed in the first episode? I never watched beyond that but I got the impression that someone just handed him a bag of money to make a small apperance.

Foundation is moving at a snails pace, I really wish they didn't feel the need to drag out the story so much.

I don't mean to keep harping on about Foundation because I actually enjoyed this episode, and Lee Pace did his best work of the series. But it has really strayed far away from the plot of the books that it's almost unrelated.
It just seems like such a risk to think that you will get around to dealing with the book plot in season 2 or 3 or 4.

I got the distinct impression that Sam Neil was only there to lure in viewers, and he probably got a nice payday to work a few days on a schlocky tv show.

It doesn't looks particularly interesting, but the fact that Darren Aronofsky is involved makes me want to check it out.

Both The Dropout and WeCrashed are just too long, there isn't enough story there to drag them out over 8 episodes.

Of the three grifter dramedy miniseries that have come out this year (WeCrashed, Inventing Anna, The Dropout), I actually think I liked WeCrashed the most. It was the least sympathetic portrayal of the central figure in all of those, while also highlighting the true absurdity of every aspect of these scams.

Adam in WeCrashed was pretty sympathetic I think. He was wasting a ton of money, but he wasn't actively trying to harm anyone. Elizabeth Holmes in The Dropout was pretty darn evil.

Season two of Ted Lasso felt like it was being turned into a generic comedy, so they could just keep it going for seven seasons without any effort.
Hopefully this last season will be more like the first one.

I lost interest during the second season, but the concept is fun and I think the show is underrated overall.

Season 2 was a big mess, so any change sounds positive at this point.

The problem was partly that there seemed to be a trend of showrunners treating the first season of a tv show, like a place where they could just gently warm up, and then start telling an actually story in the later seasons.

I donít have any special love for the books, they are merely fine. But why would you spend so much money on adapting what is essentially just the first chapter?
It just seems like such an arrogant move to constantly half-rear end these adaptations.
