I’m a cynical asshole and I should hate Ted Lasso.

Why the fuck is this show so good?

After some introspection, I think the show reminded me I'm not a cynic. I'm an optimist who's suffered a relentless and undeserved emotional beating. And it's okay to say "fuck all that! I choose to remain a positive person."

@tewha Another part of it, I think, is that it's not just a positive, optimistic show, but one that understands that sometimes things actually are shit and it's okay to feel that way too.

@shadowfacts I think a huge part of it is "solving conflict as adults," too. Don't see that often enough in the real world, and never at all on TV.
