Snippet: A Stupid Show ☇

Shared on February 12, 2021

Bob Lefsetz:

And I can’t give “Ted Lasso” a ringing endorsement, I can’t say it’s a must-see, but I will tell you once you watch about an episode and a half, you’ll finish it. Because you’ll like the mood, you’ll like the respite from the real world, and ultimately…things don’t always play out the way you expect them to, which is a relief.

So Apple TV+ has a hit. It’s a sleeper, it’s taken time to grow, but that’s how almost everything is these days, a work of art must percolate in the marketplace before it gets traction. As for marketing? If marketing were truly king, most movies released would be a success, when this is patently untrue.

There were so many thoughts to pull from this post and this feels like a bit of a spoiler, but it’s well worth a read. It covers not just Ted Lasso, but Apple TV+, streaming expectations, and the change in the way we consume media.
