"Can watch shrinkage. Shrinking, shrinking, forgetting to something else. So any of the one old guy he says dumb stuff. But yeah, it's so good. And I hope that they can continue and I'm ready to see some of the spin offs. Because I feel it is positively impacted so so many people and that's just rare and TV now. It's a sweet show. It's about people trying to be better people and kinder and nicer to each other even though they're swearing. There are adult situations and there's like conflict in there too, it's such a rare show. But I'll throw another shout out to shrinking Doc because I've been watching that too. That's co created by Brett Goldstein. Who's also on Ted Lasso and also right around Ted Lasso. And also Bill Lawrence, who co created Ted Lasso, and also the creator of scrubs. So if you like the vibes of scrubs, if you like that, another feel good show. Awesome show. Still holds up today if you rewatch it. Shrinking is a show about a therapist who kind of has like an existential crisis is dealing with the grief. Of the death of his wife and it's about him trying to piece his life back together and it's very much like Ted Lasso in that it is kind of a sad story about somebody who's kind of hurt, but it's really about everybody coming together to help them. And then trying to find their purpose in life. So shrinking. Also really good. Shout out Bill Lawrence. Thank you. Thank you for bringing. Thanks. Nicholas, anything you want to shut up? Yeah, there is a local game story here in Tucson that will be having a Game of Thrones trivia night in a few weeks. And I am now watching Game of Thrones more or less for the first time. I feel like I saw some of the episodes when it first came out, but not not really, basically. And so I'm just about to wrap up season one, it helps to have the subtitles on. But it is very good. I'm enjoying it so far. So this is hot new show that I'm watching. Game of Thrones season one. How far are you going to try to get or the trivia night? I think I got two weeks. I feel like I could finish a season what is it? It's been like two or three days. So I don't know, probably at least half I'm shooting for. I mean, it's just about doing well and trivia, to be honest. But yeah, that's what I'm up to. I mean, you're going to power through the good seasons. I think you'll have a good time with that. Well, all right folks, well, thank you so much. Anthony ha from eniac ventures. How are things going in Harlem and New York Anthony? Things are good, you know? I think sometimes you hear things about how New York cities are crazy out in New York is great. And not everything's perfect. I mean, ren is still insane. Don't get me started on that, but another reason. I probably can't live in the city again with a family, but yeah. I don't know. I feel like things, yeah, things just have to get a little bit worse in the movie rent will get better. We'll see. Fingers crossed. All right, we've got Doc rock from YouTube and Hawaii. And then I'm so jealous Doc rock of your life in Hawaii. Thank you so much for joining us. Good for the weather. There are other reasons why I wish I was able to go somewhere closer, 'cause I'm going to NAB and a couple of days. And it's just always a trek in home in the melee. I'm just right there, but here it's like a whole trick, and so yeah, when we were talking about conferences, I'm fixing to go to a conference that is not going to be as fun as E for you, but ready to go. Pretty good. Awesome. And actually, I forgot to ask, but Doc, where can we find you on the Internet these days? I'm Doc rock on just about anything, anything on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram. I do a lot of stuff on ecamm live channel on YouTube and on my own personal channel on YouTube. And I mostly talk about trying to get people who run businesses to understand that creating is probably the best way to really connect with your customers and so if you missed the social media boat or whatever, don't worry about it, I can teach people how to get their creative juices learned to connect with their community and stuff like that because it is just amazing. When you guys do your podcasts and it's live and we all get to watch to me that's the interaction that people are missing and you can tell by the chat. Look at all these lovely people in the chat and hanging out with us today on Easter chat. Thank you. So yeah, bigger to those guys. And Anthony, where can we find you online, by the way? I'm at Anthony ha most places, though not on Gmail because which I'm still bitter about. I also, I guess if you're a founder and interested in talking to me in my eniac capacity, we're just eniac VC and then I have a podcast where we review streaming shows original content. Original content, love it. Nicholas de Leon from consumer reports, how are you doing, you know? And we find you online. Yeah, no.

I do have a personal project, the hour time show, which is a podcast about the watch industry, so like Rolex and seiko. And that type of thing it folks want to check it out.

"Yeah, this show, I didn't know what to expect of it exactly, but it's way better than I thought it was even going to be. The headline I'll give you is Jason Segel plays a therapist who is messed up. But Wilde says, I was thinking maybe also the show was going to be a little darker than it is. And I haven't experienced that so much. There are some tough things in it, but it is really fun and lighthearted as well. And it digs into a lot of interesting areas. But what I will say is Apple have done it again. That's awesome. They have made genuinely, it's not done yet, but genuinely one of my favorite comedies I've seen in years. I feel about shrinking, how I felt about watching the first season of Ted Lasso. So that is the recommendation I will give you. This show is delightful. And I'm learning things from it. And every single person in it is they are working at the top of their game. This show is fantastic. We got to move that up the list. Who is it that I just said was in it? Is Bill Lawrence's wife, right? Christa Miller, Krista Miller her husband in the show. Every single line this guy says, I laugh out loud. He is the role they have given him is incredible and he is playing it perfectly. Every single time this guy's on the screen, I'm laughing. It's great. The other one, let me go 100% opposite in tone. Now, see, right now, I'm all in on the shrinking idea, going a 180° in the opposite is not necessarily my cup of tea, but please, I genuinely would like to hear what you have to say. HBO is the last of us. Yes, everyone seems to be interested in this these days. All my God, oh my God. My God. This is golden age television. Like this is as good as HBO television can be. I can not stress to you enough. How incredible the last of us is. It's amazing. Not only is it just an amazing television show, it is one of the best adaptations I have ever seen. Because you played the game games game, one many. I played most of the first game, and I want to play it. It was hard and I was scared of it, and so I stopped, but now they have released a new version and they have, I'm thinking I'm going to try it again at the easiest difficulty, so I can go through the story, but I know the story. I know like the base story and they are deviating from it in interesting ways, but none of the ways I think all of the ways that deviate from it are better. And there is one episode of this, which is just this show, has an episode that is one of the best love stories I've ever seen on television. Wow, like a mini movie because like a 90 minute episode or something and it is just the love between two men and it is beautiful. It's just unbelievable. I guess that's a slight spoiler I've given there, but I'm trying to sell people on this show that it isn't. This show is not The Walking Dead. Like if you're thinking like, oh, no, I don't want to watch The Walking Dead. This is not The Walking Dead. We're not we're catching up. We're back up to episode 6. There have maybe been in the episodes I've seen just a small handful of incidents with the quote unquote infected. I'm going to tell you right now, all right? There are lots of references to pandemics in this show, right? So you just got to go in knowing that, okay? It's unbelievable. Pedro Pascal, that man, he can do no wrong. Yeah. It's Petro season, baby. We're in it. Mandalorians bank? I think Pedro Pascal is just all of our daddies now. He's just like daddy figure, you know? Like he's just daddy for everyone, you know? Because he plays like father figure in this show, right? And everyone is doing incredible. So he plays alongside Bella Ramsey, who is, again, the way that she is taking the role compared to the video game, is different. But in a way that I think is working better for this show. Casey, I know that it's like it can be a hard ask, right? It's dark, but there are. There is love in this show that is amazing. And the performances are incredible. The special effects are amazing. The practical effects are amazing. The world design is incredible. Again, the series is not finished. They have the ability to screw it up, but I see nothing but them sticking the landing on this. Yeah. It is next level TV. Yeah, see, I should probably give it a shot, but I am, I am not personally and currently in the space that I really want a lot of unhappy TV in my life. And maybe this isn't unhappy, but

Listen to Maxie on the mic on the iHeartRadio app, Apple podcasts or wherever you go to get your podcasts. A place coach beard on Ted Lasso, I don't know if Brendan wants to join us now. But Brendan hunt joining us on the program. Come on in, stay a while. Good to talk to you. How are you? I mean gosh, do I got to start my day with talk of filthy crudite? Yeah. How many days? Well, that's a normal day for you. So take me back to when this all started. Sure. I mean, first of all, Brendan hunt 6 foot nothing, one 95. Yeah, we did these commercials for NBC sports. Because they got the coverage of the Premier League back in 2013. The offer was to fly me and Jason Davis and Joe Kelly to London for three whole days. And we were like three days in London. That's the job of a lifetime. So we happily took it. And now we are three years into a TV show, this crazy dumb thing. But when the promos were done, when did the idea of we could make this a show? We did the promos two years in a row because the first one went well and up that ad company won like whatever kind of awards they went for ads. And after the second one, me and Joe and Jason, that means let Jace particularly was like, hey guys, this thing is fun, right? There's something more to this than some of its parts. Let's figure out something more to do with it. We didn't know if it was a movie or a more commercials or a TV show, but we started thinking about a TV show and thinking about it in the model of the UK office of 6 episode 6 episodes and a special, you know, sort of three chunks. We wrote up a pilot. We put together a structure and then nothing happened for about 5 years. Jason and Joe's careers were going very well. I was rotting on a block melody. Very much considering a career return to dinner theater. And then at the last minute, a couple of years ago, Jason was like, oh, I haven't launched with Bill Lawrence tomorrow. We'll see what happens. And this happened. Is it a benefit, an advantage to know more soccer or less soccer? In my shoes, it's a benefit. Because it turns out, even though we have some English people on the writing staff, I'm like the soccer guy. And everyone's in a while, it's a guy just get turned into like, okay, Brandon, what would happen here? And I tell them what really happened for a given situation. And then we generally ignore that. But it's good to know what's supposed to happen before we break the rule of what we decide to actually do. Because you're sort of a savant, but I don't know if people realize you're a soccer savant during the show. Is that fair with your character? Yeah, I mean, I think it's kind of at least comparatively compared to most of the rest of America. Because I didn't get into soccer till I was in my mid 20s. And when I had this job in Amsterdam, doing comedy out there, and then I discovered that soccer didn't suck. And I became a sponge and tried to just soak up every bit of history and trivia and factuality that I possibly could. And it hasn't gone away since I've, since I moved to the states, I'm still now full on soccer nut. The reaction in the United States compared to the reaction in England. How big of a discrepancy disparity between the two? When it first started? Well, when I first started, yeah, no one in England knew who we were at all. And we could walk freely among them. And then shooting the second season was COVID and mostly, so we could still kind of walk around. But now, year three, you know, I decided that if you're three, I was going to live in Richmond. I could sure I could do so quite anonymously. The UK has been watching this show yet. And I wanted the pub from the show to be my local. Well, by year three, the UK has caught up to Ted Lasso, and I can no longer go to that pub. It's like if tourists go to Boston and they go to the cheers bar and suddenly cliff is there. So you actually would go to the bar that you go to, a local pub. Yeah. Yeah. Richmond's awesome. And the Richmond green, you know, that little that little park basically where the pub is in real life on the show is hypnotically quaint. I would spend weeks at a time there if I possibly could, except now I absolutely can't. The timing with COVID, it felt like we needed feel good. A lot of these shows are, let me pick out the guy that is the least detestable and everybody's detestable, like Succession. You know, you watch and you go, well, you don't like any of them, but you do love the show. It was different with Ted Lasso. But I don't know what role COVID played or the pandemic and we're at home and needing feel good stories played. In the success. Yeah, we're not quite sure either. I mean, and obviously, you know, we sure would have preferred the people were watching it of their own volition and despite having plenty of options of how they could do their night. Now, here we were with a captive audience and if you're going to have a captive audience at least, at least make them feel a little better. But certainly the show was written before COVID and edited during COVID and then it finally came out. Yeah, like a real COVID high point about 6 months into it, I guess. And whether that was a multiplier or not from then on, the reaction that we were getting from people, even before a lot of people were watching the show was immediately intense and really like elevated kind of connection for a show that had only just come out and it's been pretty breathtaking to be to be a part of. We're talking to Brendan hunt, the actor writer producer, he's coach beard on Ted Lasso, season three, final season, apparently. On Apple TV plus that will be Wednesday, march 15th. Final final season? We just don't know for sure right now. You know, again, we've always saw this as like a three sweet movement, and here we are. With the conductor waving that baton with a sense of finality and we're definitely ending this story. We started out to tell, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's the, it's the end end. It does mean we're going to finish this up and we're going to take a little break. Because we're very tired of each other's adorable hairy faces. And after about a year and a half or so we'll come back together and see what's up. Give me the episode where you go, I can't believe we're doing this.

"An old apple store is reopening next week. Apple insiders as Apple confluence in the own friends will open again on Friday, the 17th of March. That'll cap a two month closure for renovations during which time Apple renovated the store. Hold things kind of strange. Apple didn't really announce that the store was closing for the Renault, though, the piece as AppleCare plus customers were notified the store's site has been updated with a modernized Apple logo, but no art of what's to come. The site also says update of the store in progress on francais, though it doesn't say what has changed. It's not hard to guess, though. Indications are that the stores look had not changed since it opened in 2012, expect more natural wood, more modern displays and frustration, figuring out where to go for your genius appointment. The Apple TV plus comedy shrinking is getting a second season. The Cupertino streamer issued a press release Thursday saying that the series co created by the show's star Jason Segel and Ted Lasso creatives Bill Lawrence and Brett Goldstein has been renewed for season two. Since its premiere, the release says shrinking has been hailed as one of 2020 threes funniest shows as well as the most charming and life affirming show about grieving ever made. I'd be curious to see what other shows turn up on that list. I called the Siegel, the show's star, though he's not the only one. Not even the biggest. This is the one that puts Harrison Ford and one of his first television roles. Apple's wasting no time locking in another run. The season two announcement hit as season one continues to roll out to viewers, new episodes currently hit on Fridays on the Apple TV plus.

Things that I really enjoyed this week, I am tearing my way through this Apple TV show shrinking. Yeah. Jason segel and Harrison Ford and an amazing cast, same creator, Bill Lawrence, and who did you have scrubs back? That was one of our favorite TV shows. One of my favorite shows. You know what, Brendan Fraser, obviously everyone talk about how great he is in the well. Do you remember his story arc in scrubs? I think his characters are Brendan Fraser was in our I do remember. It's amazing. Anyway, Bill Lawrence, the guy that came up with scrubs, he's come up with shrinking with Jason Segel. It is brilliant. That is the funniest show on TV right now. Love it very, very good. And the other thing that really made me laugh didn't necessarily agree with everything the young man was saying, but my God, what a special fearless. Chris Rock, it was the first time a streaming service and I bet more than do this. I actually did a live, it was amazing. Going on Netflix and it was counting down to something live happening that you could watch anywhere in the world. Chris Rock was performing live stand up recording his special live on stage in Baltimore, and I watched it 2 o'clock in the afternoon. In Sunday and Melbourne, it's an incredible stand up special. He's still one of the best. It's like a preacher at times the way stalks the stage, but there were some amazing stuff in there. It's very, very good. It's called selective outrage. It's on Netflix. Can't recommend that enough, check it out. Jackie boy, what's it for you? Yeah, I got a podcast that Bianca has been listening to and I've been tuning in and now I'm kind of obsessed with it. It's called if books could kill, get it on any podcast app. We were talking in the studio amongst our sales the other day about the book, the game. In the 90s, it was about how to pick up women manual. I think it was branded as that was a pickup artist manual, yeah. I've never read the game, but I listened to the podcast where they rip shreds into the game. It's kind of it's a very bitchy podcast, but they just pick a very popular book from history, and they tell you why it was no good. And the game is the episode that I got into. Cool. What's it called? If books could kill. All right, let's get the headlines next to a Patsy. But Christian O'Connell show podcast. Tell them what you made a bold move then.

But Luna, the dog has been sick this last week and he's got diarrhea. She's scratching on the door. That actually is a cripple irony. You've gained nothing to do those wet puddles. Yeah.

I started to build a moat around my house yesterday, so that can hold them off for a bit. You're just adding to the fear mongering. Honestly, patty, you've got to have a word of your news colleagues. By 16 year old daughter yesterday said, oh, really worried about this war with China. Australia's not a war with China. First of all, look around the place, you know? What do they want here? Everything shots up about three in the afternoon, restaurants and cafes. The chain rule is getting pushed to the side and that. And China aren't going to impress with the lack of industry here. Honestly, if I for one will come on, you Chinese overlords. This weekend, if that is a countdown weekend, top 20, Chinese marching Anthos. But seriously, it's like in the newspapers. It's on the news now. They can show up pictures of rockets and things. And they just get a guy. They're getting expert on morning TV that says, he's a pundit about Chinese war.

"They learn and they figure things out. It's so cool. There's like no awkward phase for them. Yeah, but sometimes they go too far with things. I mean, it's not easy to adapt, not that they go too far. It's just like, okay, it's a whole new world. We're supposed to learn. But they're also really creative. And I love that we're talking about people as generations. Everybody's so individual. I don't know how that happened. But facts. Okay, that's very probably millennial. I haven't heard that word facts, but I like it. I'm going to use it. I use some of coco's and it doesn't really work for me. Like, I'll say if I say fire or she's like, what are you doing?

What are the children saying? Okay, Courtney. So home court celebrated. It's one year anniversary. Yay. Very happy birthday. Thank you. And you had a pretty epic video for this involving one edge Sheeran, which is kind of crazy. I'm sure you've told this story. How did you even meet Ed Sheeran? Like, I feel like you're just everybody's favorite house to go to. You're just kind of like everyone come over. I'm the hostess. And then everyone comes and is like, she's the best. We're gonna hang out. So how did this even happen? How did you meet him? 'cause it smells so good and yeah. That's right. Okay, so Ed was at a restaurant, not too far from here. And I was on a show called cougar town. And Bill Lawrence's wife, Kristen Miller, who was my costar on the show. She had put one of Ed's songs on the show. And she had said she came up to him. He was at the restaurant and she walked over and said, hey, you know, I put one of your songs on the show. This is a long time ago. This must be this is over ten years ago. I think about 11 years ago now. And she said, my friend Courtney has these gatherings on Sunday. Do you want to come tomorrow? And he's like, sure. And he came over, we became immediate Friends. And he introduced me to my partner, Johnny, mcdade. And I just have known him. He's just the most down to earth, wonderful guy. He always stays here, he's in town. I love his wife, cherry. He's got two amazing kids. And he's just unassuming and kind and the most talented. He's played here a bunch for Friends of mine on these gatherings. We have musicians a lot. Not a lot. But it goes in spurs. I met Brandi carlile on Instagram that she became a friend and I directed her video and she comes over and sings sometimes. And not like it's a concert. It just happens after dinner and then people are just enjoying themselves and got some really good people come over and perform. I mean, it looks like it because from what we see on Instagram. But you also play. You taught yourself how to play piano, right? I did. I have a great teacher, but he moved to Nashville, and I'm really mad at him and upset about it.

"Anyway, somebody that just thinking outside of the box and I think personally this idea of the show was ahead of its time. It didn't turn out to be what I was expecting, but because what we had planned and actually what we pitched, it was much more it was salacious, but not in just the sexual seedy way, it became more of a heady show. It's almost as if I was the editor of Vanity Fair. It was really supposed to be an editor of us magazine or some really just who's going to get the story and we had this character named Don conky, who was played by Ian Hart. And what a great actor he is. But it was supposed to be a little less sophisticated and more just ruthless. And it was, it just was, it was a little elevated in a way that I wasn't expecting. But anyway, yes, I wanted to play a character that was completely different than Friends. I didn't want to be compared. I wanted to push myself and I loved that show and I loved doing it. And I love the fact that it was something that we created and then, but it was really, I think one of the theories is that the writers strike as part of the reason why it was not longer lived. I think so. It was the second season and I, like, the writer strike came right at the beginning. And I remember everything was shut. No one came to work. And yeah, I think that had a big thing to do with it. Well, so that was 2007 to 2008. And then 2009, pretty shortly after your back with cougar town, which just to note co created by Bill Lawrence, who I believe was a writer on the first season of Friends, along with Kevin beagle, this whole one of the interesting things here that kind of came up in a lot of the stuff that I was reading during prep is that the whole cougar angle of it really was supplanted pretty quickly by the idea of turning it into an ensemble comedy about multiple midlife issues. And that was apparently at your urging, whereas a lot of people would have said, no, this is a show that is centered on me and there can be other peripheral characters and whatever. Why for you, did you do the other opposite essentially? And advocate for making it a real ensemble. I don't know how dumb is that. What is this thing I have? And I don't think I would do this anymore. But I must have this real thing being the youngest of four kids and I don't know why I just always think things are better when everybody gets to shine. But I must say I'm really love the pilot of cougar town. I loved playing this character. I had a line where she has sex for the first time with this young boy and I remember the line of something like, oh wow, I can see colors. It had just been so long and I thought it was really funny, but I do think that.

"So although I agree with you that it feels Biden me Like Biden. It is also a response to Trump. The show's already won three of the 20 Emmys They had to creative arts Emmys and one was for casting, which I thought was interesting. What's a piece of casting that you've seen that's different. From casting you've seen before. Well, you know, the show. So it is, as I mentioned before it is. It is created by Bill Lawrence. Um, who listeners may know. Um he's sort of most famous other show was Scrubs. He had another show called Cougar Town and He has this pattern Where shows that he's interested in start. They seem like they have a protagonist at the start of like, clearly a man character, and then the point of it By the time you're a couple episodes in is much more of a cast on som ble things. Minor characters tend to they figure out what that minor characters saying is, and then they Suddenly become crucial element. You fall in love with these with these smaller characters, Um And I think that last so you know, has a lot of that. Same um, even in spite of the fact that Ted is more central to the show, then then has been the case in other Bill Lawrence. Shows. There is this way that the casting has Already illuminated these minor characters. I don't think anyone expected a character like, um Keeley from the very first couple episodes. She seems pretty, uh, she is. Costumed to look did seize seems maybe potentially insubstantial, and by the time you're several episodes in, I mean, first of all, Juno Temple is an unbelievable performer. But they have also written to her strength, and then she becomes a real key in the in the in the series, I think to heap Jamal, who plays Sam of a Sonya. That is another example where you can. You can basically see that in that first season, they saw him on screen instead. Wow, what an incredible performer like how great this is going to be when we can give him more screen time. And then in season two, he has this much more crucial role. And so for me, the casting is really They They were able to find these performers who could blend into the background and sort of build out this team. And then the writing is able to identify what makes each of these people so special and then give them platforms. It's really lovely.

"Goldfish. You know why? No, I got a 12th memory. Be a goldfish Sam. The show is a critical hit. It broke a record when it was nominated for 20 Emmys. The first time a freshman comedy has done so. So the way the watch party works as we all watched Ted Lasso, and then we get together on Friday to discuss it on the air. And here's the best part. There's a special guest who will be at the party, one of the creators and stars of the show. Brendan Hunt coach Beard. Our friend, Vulture staff writer Catherine von Ehren. Doc was an early watch for the show. She's watched it rise, watched what some people think is a bit of a stumbling season two and she'll share thoughts and why she thinks it's been come so popular. Hi, Catherine. Hi. So, what did you think? The first time you saw Ted Lasso. So I reviewed Ted Lasso. I watched all of the screeners like They released the full first season and it did not have any of the stuff that it has. Now. It did not have this like huge conversation about it with everyone sort of embracing, and I came to the show with this. Um the sense of a little bit of frustration and like and doubt I was a Doubter in part because Um, it came from its actually developed from a commercial, which television shows developed from ad campaigns don't have the greatest track record and there is something a little bit like Something in your body just goes like Oh, I don't know if I want to watch the TV show based on an ad for you know, showing sports on television. Um, and I felt like there was a little bit of I was frustrated that it was once again a story about a guy who is not qualified for his job. But like just gets to go do it anyhow and like somehow manages to succeed and like that was my very initial impression, particularly of the first couple episodes. And by the time I had gotten all the way through the first season, there was definitely a thing where I was like. Mm, It did get me though it did it. Did I Okay. All right. All right, all right. And it has been really fascinating. Watching the show becomes so widely embraced earlier in the pandemic. I think everyone watched it a binge style. Everyone heard like you have to watch to lasso. It's so so good, like, trust me, Just sit down and watch it. I promise you'll love it. And everyone so many people did, which I think you know. The incredible number of Emmy nominations is testament to that. And it has been equally fascinating watching people now take this. What is really a very personal sort of private experience that everyone got to have for themselves, like, just sit down and watch it all and like have their own responses to each episode and come away. Thinking about the show. As you know. 10 episode first season run, and now everyone is experiencing at one episode at a time because the second season is released. Serially as TV has been for decades, But as we have sort of fallen out of habit of, um and I think a lot of it's been it's just I'm really interested in How people are responding to the characters. I think a little bit differently now and how the show is pushing against what people want it to be. As you mentioned this origin. This series was this commercial. It was an NBC promo spot for the network was going to wear soccer and the spot. It's really interesting. The spot he's edgier Ted Lasso is a bit edgier than the character in the series. The premise is the same American football coach attempts to coach soccer team in UK Let's listen to about a minute of the original promo. How you doing? This is Ted last on the new head Coach of the Tottenham hot spurs, and I'd like to talk to the Queen, Please. My name is Ted Lasso. I'm new Head Coach for Tottenham Spurs been brought over here to, uh, you know, implement my coaching style football is football man, where you playing grass yet? Cleats. Yet Helmets with masks on football in the states is my specialty, but they have a different kind of football over here. Kick it. Circle them up and put on their pads and start playing for real. They're wearing their pads coach. There's a lot of, uh Lot of small similarities. 18 my coach, They're gonna play hard for all four quarters. Okay to solves. What's that too hard? Okay, halves. We won't play hard for two halves, and we're gonna play until there's a winner. There's a loser. What's that? Okay, there's a winner, loser or a tie. You can tie if you tried to end a game in a tie in the United States that might be listed in revelations as the cause for the apocalypse Yet we have any goals this season. Absolutely gonna win a lot of games we're gonna get in the playoffs. There's no playoffs. So that fish out of water Thank can only sustain us for so long. What have they done right to keep it going. Yeah, So you're absolutely right. The pilot episode of this series has some of that same energy, and they do continue to thread like even in some of the most recent episodes in season two, there are moments where he like still doesn't understand the offsides rule. But very early. One of the crucial developments from that ad campaign into the television show was that they turned him into a person who Is curious. He doesn't know anything about the show or about the he doesn't know anything about the sport. But he is curious to learn. It is not. I mean, I think in that ad campaign, it is. We are laughing at him because of how little he knows. And he is so dismissive of all of the assumes all of these things about this sport. Um, and that it's playing into these, um, stupid American kind of Stereotypes. You know, we just barge into other countries and tell them how to play their games. Um, and so the show makes this really really smart decision to Give him that Same Ignorance, innocence and ignorance at the beginning, But to make it very, very clear that he wants to learn is is extremely excited about learning. And that, um The skill that we're going to enjoy that we're going to sort of root for him to be able to develop among all these other players. Is more about the personal relationships and sort of respecting each other as people and so he can. He can develop and work on the flaws of this team in that way. And then have other coaches who actually understand the game work on safe, actual soccer strategy. My guess is Katherine van Erin Dunk We're talking about Ted Lasso. We're having a watch party this week, so I'm curious. You know, I think about the timing of this drop, it almost seems of dropping the series. It feels like it. Maybe could have only happened during the Biden administration because he's kind of like Biden meets Ned Flanders, anyway. Yeah. The Simpsons. Yeah. Yeah, I mean, It is really, really I think a lot of what the show has Spoken to people. A lot of the response to the show has been the way that it acts as this Statue of a certain kind of positive friendly. Goodhearted masculinity, right? And it does feel like it. Is this response to Trump Administration? Um I don't think it is too much of a stretch to say that a show that is about like Americanism abroad. Is political. Although I do that I have seen a lot of people who really resent the being asked to think about this show and political terms. I think one of the one of the Signs of how stressed we all are is how many people have seen. Watch this show and be like I just want to like it. It's a nice happy show. Please do. Please do not make me like freezing up press on all of these stressful issues. Um, I do think, but it was in development for a long time. So even before Biden became president like this, these were ideas that the showrunner Bill Lawrence was already developing..

Apparently a lot of people really enjoy it. And jason davis is the lead jason sudan. Guest deserves it. I love a today. Guess i found myself finding a lot of surprising little injuries on these lists. 'cause i i guess i'm used to the snobbery or the prestigious -ness of the oscars were scifi and fantasy other than lord of the rings really fights really hard to get the recognition it deserves and just doesn't get it but then here at the emmys outstanding drama series. We have both the boys. The man delorean lovecraft country. Those three are listed among like the crowd and the handmaid's tale which is also consi- fires and this is us. You've got the injuries. I expect to be there. And then all of a sudden like amazon prime. The boys i mean. I think there's definitely a moment right. Now where people are more receptive to your. I guess they are typical scifi and fantasy narratives. But they're more receptive to the setting. I think i think that's becoming a bigger and bigger part of our culture. Yeah i guess the the sentiment from the emmys as well. This cape stuff seems to be sticking around. We might as well like watched some of it and oh turns out.

Because it would have been very easy for that to be not heartfelt like not like we would be very easy for us to believe it because it was ridiculous. It'd be easy to believe it because it didn't really happen but gosh. I think those actress did a beautiful job in that moment and to find their way towards just just enough funnel building with each other to form a little connection to find some grudging support. And then they're done in the ways of boys like that right it's okay we're we're good. We've shown our souls and were done never to repeated you know. I love how you know again. Bill lawrence does this where characters swerve out of the the tropes you expect they swerve out of the the things we assume about them where you know. They get to the end of that scene where he were. Roy has said yeah there was. There was an older player. When i was starting out and Yeah we just we just had figured out and get along and that was that and then finally jamie says so. You still friends with that guy. Is i wish he was dead. I hope he's dead. That was yeah and they end that nice. Little fear out of their lanes by by coming back with a bottle clinking. Here's to your death. Okay right back where we were. Yeah now that was put that was With jamie saying he had where i post when he was boy you know even though they didn't end up being like oh i love you man at the end. It was like he. Those two guys won't forget the what they had. You know exchanged on this night and you know for both of them. It's an a- where as the series progresses you know they're gonna they're gonna be re that repercussions but They'll build upon the character moment for both of them. Vulnerability is Is kryptonite to both of them. Yes and finding out exactly why well we might be more invested in finding out. Why roy is then than jamie. Because it's just just a brash. He's just horrible but But yeah that's a that idea of finding the chinks in the armor just fascinating again. This only episode for what's going on here.

This is a gift for people who have been holding out positivity and optimism in the face of a year that tried to pound the optimism. Right out of you It arrived at just the right time as far as concerned I'm i'm sure we'll reference at but specifically this writing team this collaborative squad of five or six individuals who tend to spearhead most of the writing on this waste in the dialogue. Almost every line has some significance or value or or just sheer entertainment to provide a. I love every minute of the show. Yeah it's one one of the things. That kind of amazed me when i first heard about it because i remember the original commercials that today kaz and brendan hunt. We're doing at. Apparently the characters go back even further than that because they had been fans for so long and when they brought in bill lawrence to help craft it into a sitcom into a show. And you know. He created scrubs. He co created cougar. Town and amid that alone said to me okay. They're they're not just doing a fish out of water the not just doing silly. Oh it's an britain. They're going to go for something a little deeper they're gonna go for humans having grown up relationships and friendships and it's as much as i enjoyed those shows. This might be even better. Well i mean when you talk about it came at the right time i actually did not watch it when it first landed because i thought it's a sports thing not i know it was more than a sports thing but i thought it's for sure dude thing like dudes talking about sports and life like together and one guy i had a little bit of a A worry when..

"Who is bonnie cycowicz bill. She wrote this episode. Bonnie psych quits is a young comedy writer. married a mike cyclists who i wrote with on friends and she wrote on For gary goldberg for a good period of time. So i'd known her for a while. So how does that work business. That occasionally a writer outside the normal writer's room already script. What's not about back in the old days with shows especially when there'd be twenty two to twenty six episodes you'd sometimes assign a couple of freelance scripts out there ways for writers. That kind of you're still of trying to find their way onto a staff to make some money and Finding in into the guild to health insurance and all that stuff in the old days is not not a thing anymore nowadays. It's it's almost the same price to have a staff writer you know they. They changed the system a little bit. Ed so like when you see a staff writer show. They don't get paid for the scripts even if they write one staff writers. And so i think the the guild was trying to create a situation that it was almost the same price to have a staff writer for six or eight weeks so they get the experience of being on a staff as it was to give someone a freelance script. I never knew that. And i believe this. Is victor nelli first episode. Do you know if that's true or not used to check it out. But he became a regular on this. We ended final for me.

That was a victim. Victor nelli episode. I think houses. I e for those of you. This is four twenty two and our flashing back to the moment were Carlin i kissed in rewatching the kiss. It do see that lips are parted. Lips are deputy it. it's it doesn't look innocent and all. Its bro bro. It does not look innocent at all to get a drink. The pruder tape. You're like okay. Let me look now up doors. You say as an accident and she's giggling and you're supposed to be hammered. Seemed to enjoy it too much as actual actor actress though i mean the real people the real. Ged in the real. Judy enjoyed listen. I gotta say i. We talked about this last week. And i was very upset watching it because i was like i would never. This is victor. i direct so bill bill. You weren't here last week but Donald were very upset watching this kiss because it just felt wrong. Even this many years later but But no as you re watch. It wasn't just a purse lip. Kiss there without there were there. Were open lips. There was no tongue. Lips work webs. Were open but sandwich layers of lip sandwich in soap opera. It's it's it's it's it's a metaphor pride. Feel this where this episode comes in time and when where your podcast is right now. It's just so because it's it's like the halfway point during mean for show and on the one hand we knew we were doing. And there's a lot of funny stuff on the other hand you know. I felt like this is right where the show was teetering a little bit. We could have easily gotten tired. You know what i mean because we had done. I think we had done almost eighty something episodes of the show by now and what hundred exactly but instead. I felt like everybody kind of reinvigorated themselves. That fifth season and wet Absolutely baton. that's crazy so it's a lot of prejudice is a very good one. I i remember te pressure. Don't you guys the pressure on your podcast. Right now in terms of i if you go along go along go along is this is. What's so interesting when used to do shows for nine years. You reach a point that you know how to do it. You're doing it well and people enjoy it but it's very easy to get overly comfortable and complacent right and so then you have to go do either mix it up or do we reinvigorate. Yeah what we're trying to do that in a sense because we also love the four of us love doing it so much and we see. Obviously there's a there's a end to it and we go. That's why we've been folding in some some interviews here because we we all kinda wanna find a way to keep doing. We jokingly say we're gonna watch podcast of another show but we're a realistic podcast of the original pug this and then evaluate each episode strong and we. I don't know i. I think we have fun when we really i mean. I know it's sort of everyone's doing it. But we really do like enjoy interviewing people that are super interesting and And maybe maybe we'll do our own version of that. I don't know to be determined. We also think about it for for four more seasons. I also take into watching. You guys do rewatch podcast of show that neither of you is on. Were on in case you have different opinions and stuff like that. Is i still three. Watch the office. Because there's already been a relaunch fogcast but donald doesn't want to do that. And i wanna do a different world man or something like that such a dry eye and beat up to going to drama. Well i mean i could joke about dramas all day doing now. I think. I think it's the obvious thing is it has to be a show with an overlapping fan base. Scrubs like community or something where it's where it's the the people that listen to this and loved scrubs feel the same way about another show. We then they all stay tuned. That seems logical. We should do short lived show so each season is like we should do like parker lewis. Can't lose lead. we're really good comedies. We grew up with. Like you know eddie murphy. Movies of the eighties. Oh my gosh. I could talk about eddie murphy all day long you that money. Let's keep going. So krista in that how i wrote down i wrote down the words. Lucky man bill are between your bosoms. Ma'am maybe he looks fantastic. I if i could. I think my wife has an amazing body. But i don't know if i would show it off to every you'd be proud of that. Well there was one time. You're all your wife is on life smoke so did your wife is very sexy and And i think you'd be proud to see that one time. I do remember but i was shit faced drunk and one time christa christa. Props she soci- about she's so game for anything man her willingness to poke fun at herself in this thing. It really made me laugh and small but the crazy thing is. She doesn't look old at all. I know she looks hot as balls. That dude that dude's gay. That's why is he. I assume he's supposed to be like the son of the next door neighbor but it looks like he lives there alone for some reason. The college kid. Tom hanks in big. Why does this child live across the hall fund.
"bill lawrence" Discussed on Fake Doctors Real Friends with Zach and Donald
"None of this all bills's humans don't have thought listen. You hit it big would spin city. Then you hit it big again with scrubs and then you've got an even bigger with ted lasso men like this. It doesn't happen like this. For most lightweight. Hit and then everything after is like oh it was good. But it wasn't no were wasn't about his new thing that isn't even announced. You can't talk about off announced here touching on its official window. Because i want the exclusive on this probably in the next week or two and then come on and tell you guys about car. Well we love you bill. And i'm so proud of you. And i guys i really. You're everywhere in all these articles. I don't want to jinx you. But i'm not superstitious. All these articles like lassos gonna sweep the emmys. So i you know it's weird and so you was to have is to promotional stuff for all that you guys both had to do that. A lot before in the show is so the antithesis of that is so. It's really hard because like the whole premise of the show is you don't care about winning and losing it's how you play the game and you know how you treat each other so it all feels disingenuous spot. I promise not zach always gives me shit you guys if i pretend not to care because i'm good at pretending nothing i'm bill. Jeanie said many things but acting is not his best thing and when he acts he doesn't give a fuck about awards it really shows through now. What about merge bill. Because everyone including this little boy want jerseys and stuff when it took me forever but It's like the first place i says. There's there's initial stuff that will come out and be available in the hopefully right in the trailer comes out which is a the official trailer for season two comes out in like three weeks and then And then all the cool like named kits and a like with a special premier league type kits come out in september. I'll club teams all of a sudden start having jerseys and stuff like that that replicate. There's already so much murtaugh. Fc and by the way what happened. I wanted to make this little boy's day. And i went on and i knew that you guys did never merch yet. And i went and like just covered with. But that's non official. So what i did was even his eight. I gave him the sweatshirt that you'd given me. Because i love this little boy so sweet and like and and just wanted to make his day his name he should probably send me fifty bucks. It's not a big deal. I like you said body. I'm joking around. Of course. I'm glad you gave it to him. A super cool. I'll put my shoulders back. Donald around and watch solos okay. I thought that's right. You have other things to do a great team. Think a great thing for this episode of talk to you guys about when you get gone by. I wanted to know how everybody's lives going miss you. it's been it's very good to see all dahlia stakes. Like golf for the first time in eight months yesterday's cow. Congratulations on now. Right me as a golfer. bill. Ted sky everything the donald the at just reopened. Va over in westwood veterans. I think they have young beautiful. Nine hole course. No one goes to in the veterans area there. It was really cool. I went there with a place that all the time with his buddies told pitch. And putt thing. But it's he loves it is beautiful. You graduated to real courses. You're the real deal now. And i see your videos and stuff. Now it's fun. It's a lot of fun with asking about my life. It's like a roller coaster right now. Are you allowed to talk about what happened or no. Yeah absolutely i mean the whole world knows about. It was the craziest thing so the day that shows her announced. I get a call at like ten forty five and it's my agent and he's like yo. Give me a call as soon as you get this. And i'm like oh shit. It didn't get picked up like when when not when your whole team doesn't call you. You know right away. It didn't give up. They only want all be on the call when it's good news right and so i call him. He's like so look. The show didn't get picked up and it's being reworked and immediately i was like oh did i cast. And he was like no. You didn't recast and i was like oh great. Cool great news. There's just so heartless. Well bill you can give them a pep talk. This shit happens all the time all the time. But it's good sign. I mean bill. I mean you know better than me. But isn't an extraordinary sign. That they want to reinvest another like nine thousand shows. Have this success story of getting of re platforming reimagined. They're currently it's already picked up making How i met your father for the second time and this one's going right onto streaming and they made the first game of thrones same. Original game of thrones out there with completely different people in it There's a scrubs out there with by the way with Notice not recommend recommend myhill ryan doing. They went onto good things anyway. Their name 'cause they both saw great careers. I you know. it's it's really interesting now because we put a lot of work into it and it was and genuinely thought that you know the the network would love it and at the end of the day they loved the characters and they love the formula idea. I love the cast. Yeah but something was missing. They said they wanted to and they wanna rework which is better. There's no better when they when you think about it. When you go. Remake game of thrones. You've learned so much from a test audience and from just your own eyes go. Here's what works. Here's what doesn't work now. he can. I mean it's such a rare position to be to go make something with so much new information and so i'm sure they tested your thing and said this doesn't work. This does work. Obviously they loved the cast. Let's keep the cast and you're going to. They're going to go into production with so much new information. I think it's a blessing in disguise. Also remember that. is imperfect business. What if you thought you guys made the first one straight care and all that you don't know that it wasn't great it's just so weird cause no one can tell you know and i don't mean this to be Been dictate or anything. But it's out there to like one of the stories of ted. Laso is jason today. Kherson i went to every streaming site and It wasn't a bidding war. No one bought it except apple demean. I'm not doing it now to go like ha ha you know but it's And people wanted to like it. And they're nice. People and i know people at different companies in still past past past past past It's just kinda hard because you're asking people to roll the dice on guessing. How people are gonna react to something and that's kind of an inexact science you know. There's a reason why breaking bad's on amc because every other place passed so it's part of the game it's the weirdest part is better. We could all watch the original game of thrones and go. This is awesome but all right well we talk. We talk about that. A little bit on The black side When it does come out but we talk about how you know..
