Ted Lasso

0 min read
I’ve mentioned before that I’m not usually into sit-coms. Most of them are carbon copies of each other, with nothing new or fresh to say, rehashing jokes that have been around since the 50’s. There are exceptions. I’ve already done an entire blog post about The Good Place, I fell in love with Brooklyn 99 just a year ago and I’ve just recently found a new sitcom that I adore, Ted Lasso. Much like The Good Place, Ted Lasso defies an easy description. Yes, it’s a comedy, but there are times that it will kick you right in the feels. There’s a sports angle, but it doesn’t dominate the story line. And, oddly enough, especially for a show I like, if I had to sum it up in one word, that word would be wholesome. Okay, so the show itself is about an American football coach, the eponymous Ted Lasso (played by Jason Sudeikis of Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock), who is hired to coach an English football team. That premise, if you know anything about both sports, is funny in and of itself.

Grimm

This delightful little show ran for 6 seasons, from 2011 until 2017. This is another title that I will classify as a Child of the Slayer. I first mentioned this concept back in my post about the television show Reaper, but given that I don’t think anyone reads these posts, I’ll talk about it again. The term is a reference to the wildly popular series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and how that popularity spawned several children, television shows that mimic many aspects of the original. I’ll point out the similarities that make Grimm one of these children, but first, let me tell you about the show. This is not a bad show. I certainly wouldn’t call it a great show, I’m not going to tell anyone that they HAVE to track down this show and watch it, but it will always hold a place near and dear to my heart because of its star – the city of Portland. The show itself is billed as a horror police procedural and follows the main character Detective Nick Burkhardt (played by David Giuntoli of

Z Nation

I never really got into The Walking Dead (TWD). Which is odd, because I’m into most things zombie-ish. Don’t get me wrong; I loved the comicbook, TWD, written by Robert Kirkman, but the television show was never that interesting to me. The bleak flavor of storytelling that made the comic so compelling, just came off as grim and joyless on the screen. And while this production of TWD was completely devoid of fun, how the heck else would a show about a post-apocalyptic, zombie-filled wasteland be? Then, back in 2014, the Syfy network aired a little show called Z Nation. I don’t expect there are many fellow fans of this show. It was NOT the most watched show, on a niche network and most fans of the zombie genre prefer their shows with a bit more horror. A good chunk of Z Nation was pure silliness. If you’ve ever watched any zombie show, you know the basics. The dead now walk the Earth, hungry for human flesh, an apocalypse of the undead, destroying civilization and reducing nations to

I like your style!

Thank you greatly, kind sir!

Reality is so boring. Ignoring it to create art is how I live my life. And I can see you do something similar, haha! I like it, I really do.

Pretty imaginative stuff~

Great gallery! I like how colorful everything is. Don't be reluctant about your art, if that's meant as a bad thing... I don't really know what you mean by that. That caught my eye. Anyways your art is great!

What it means by that is if I could possibly not be an artist, I would, but, regardless of all the other paths I've gone down, I can't stop doing art. It's like a compulsion and it affects every other aspect of my life. At times, it feels like an addiction, something I go through withdrawal from if I go to long without. I've finally given in and accepted my fate, but, still, it would be nice to do something that was more respected in society and actually brought in decent money.


Thank you for appreciating my art. I really like my own work and I can tell that I am still improving. I just wish I could take a break from the life style sometimes.

I am all about your style!
