It’s been one of those weeks where I felt like I really needed a hug. Being that I’m a person who fastidiously avoids other humans at any and all costs, that was not in the cards for me. But I did get the next best thing: I got to watch some new episodes of Ted Lasso.
Season 3 of the Emmy-winning Apple TV+ sensation begins Mar. 15, and, if the episodes we’ve screened are an indication, that’s exactly what the show now is: a pop-culture equivalent of a hug. That’s both high praise and, I suppose, fair criticism. Whichever side of the spectrum you might fall on when it comes to your relationship to Ted Lasso, it’s also what makes the new season quite refreshing.
