Christmas has arrived early with the release of the fourth episode of season 2 of Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso.
Season 2 has already been a strong showing for Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso, presenting new stories but retaining the charm that made many of us fall in love with Richmond FC. Episode 4, however, represents the strongest episode so far in Ted Lasso’s sophomore season.
Fans will instantly cherish this episode within the opening minute once they realise that this is a Christmas themed episode. Ted Lasso and Christmas was always going to be the perfect striking partnership!
Our Christmas themed episode starts off in a downbeat tone as we see the pain that Coach Lasso is feeling from being away from his family during the holidays. Ted Lasso might be the most positive man of TV, but the scourge of loneliness impacts on all of us. Thankfully, Hannah Waddingham’s “Rebecca Welton” is on hand to help take Ted’s mind away from missing his family. The relationship between Rebecca and Ted is one of the strongest parts of the show, and the performance from the two leads once against shows that.
Our merry episode also shines the light on many of the secondary characters, including Jeremy Swift’s “Leslie Higgins”. Higgins, the Director of Football for Richmond FC organises a Christmas Party who those players that would normally have spent the day on themselves. It’s great to see episode 4 committing time to those characters that are not at the forefront every week. This secondary storyline also leads to an unforgettable performance which will hopefully challenge for this year’s Christmas number 1!
Ted Lasso at Christmas was always going to work, and episode 4 does not disappoint. Football fans all over have their favourite players and their favourite ever game. This Christmas episode will equally become a fan favourite of Apple TV’s Ted Lasso.
A new episode of Ted Lasso is released on Apple TV every Friday.
