12 Shows Like Ted Lasso You'll Definitely Want To Watch

"Believe." That's the core tenet of "Ted Lasso," the instruction that informs both its titular character and the team who writes him into existence. If Ted Lasso believes, so too will his audience. Maybe they'll believe in themselves. Maybe they'll come to believe that football is life (and also death), or that deep grief can be lived with. Belief is what made "Ted Lasso" a word-of-mouth hit, and belief is, ironically, why the discourse turned against it -- because, if you haven't heard, despite...

Everybloody’s End – review

Director: Claudio Lattanzi Release date: 2019 Contains spoilers This Italian movie’s title is somewhat clunky and I think works better with the original title Crucified – however, the Blu-Ray I have uses the clunkier name. The film actually doesn’t reveal its vampire connection openly until towards the end, despite a feed early on, but this is a vampire apocalypse film… it is also a Dracula related piece. below throat The film starts with the setting sun and a woman crossing a field....

You Can Now Get HBO Max For Half Off — Under Some Very Specific Circumstances

Keeping up with the constant slew of apps and streaming services has made cord-cutting feel an awful lot like signing up for cable with extra steps, but the most difficult to manage has been the price.

HBO Max has consistently proven to be one of the most popular streaming apps, and luckily for viewers, they'll be able to continue enjoying the service for half off thanks to some...

Well, the trailer mentions a vampire killer, to be fair, as bodies are drained of blood, but it almost...
