1) Ted Lasso

Ted Lasso is one of my favorite series on Apple TV plus. It is about Ted Lasso, who is basically from America and has zero knowledge about the European Football Association but gets recruited to coach an English Premier League team, AFC Richmond club. The show is full of fun with Ted’s lenience about the game but he earns everyone’s love and trust by being a positive person. He ignores the negative comments, avoids haters, appreciates the underdogs, and focuses on his job. Ted Lasso is an Emmy award-winning comedy show but I’m sure it makes you emotional.
