Alexander: Rams sent a message to the league Sunday

INGLEWOOD – Rams players and coaches said all week that Sunday’s meeting with (gotta phrase it this way) Tom Brady and the defending champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers wasn’t a measuring stick. You didn’t believe them, did you? Downplaying its significance during the week didn’t stop a loud, vibrant crowd (73,205 tickets distributed) with plenty of star power from showing up at the corner of Century and Prairie, greater L.A.’s newest place to see and be seen. Mike Tyson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Magic John...

Long Before Winning Big at the Emmys, ‘Ted Lasso’ Got Its Start as an NBC Sports Promo

“Ted Lasso” took home seven Emmy awards this year after receiving 20 nominations, more than any comedy has ever received in its first season. But while the series has been critically lauded for its originality (Variety recently praised the risky storytelling of Season 2), the idea of “Ted Lasso” had been percolating for almost two […]

In Defense of ‘Ted Lasso’ Season 2, a Risky Sequel That’s the Good Kind of Messy

For anyone paying close attention, Ted Lasso’s Season 2 breakdown was inevitable. Despite the soccer coach’s aggressively sunny demeanor, the writing was on the wall from his very first press conference in the show’s pilot episode, when he gets so overwhelmed by jet lag and the barrage of sneering attention that a high-pitched ringing creeps […]

Can positive storytelling improve race relations? This LA-based collective thinks so

A transgender, homeless vet who is raising money so other transgender veterans can have access to health care and housing. A former mafia “fix-it” guy for Hollywood A-list celebrities who sought redemption. A former gang member in Compton who now works to get people out of gangs. Their individual stories are like gusts of wind. Harnessed together, however, the group telling these and other stories hopes they may be able to generate significant energy capable of powering meaningful conversations ...

Emmys 2021 Critics Corner: On the Industry’s Narrow Focus on Deserving, But Predictable Wins

Going into the 2021 Emmys, there were a few obvious favorites. By the time Cedric the Entertainer opened the show on Sept. 19, Apple TV Plus’ “Ted Lasso” and Netflix’s “The Crown” had seemed like locks for best comedy and drama for weeks, if not months. The extent they would go on to sweep their […]

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...

Netflix is the most essential streaming service, but HBO Max leads in customer satisfaction

"The Queen's Gambit." Netflix A new survey showed that respondents were most satisfied with HBO Max among streaming services. But Netflix was the service most respondents said they would keep if they could have only one. Library content was more important to respondents than originals, but that could change.

Foundation Featurette Ponders How The Hell You Even Adapt Those Books

When "Foundation" hits Apple TV+ on September 24, it will be the first screen adaptation of Isaac Asimov's Hugo Award-winning book series. Like Frank Herbert's "Dune," which "Foundation" influenced and which is now a major motion picture from Warner Bros., Asimov's novels were once considered unfilmable. A new featurette for "Foundation" has the show's co-creator, David S. Goyer, talking up the books as "the greatest science fiction work of all time" and explaining his approach to adapting them....

15 Shows Like Brooklyn Nine-Nine You Need To See

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" has had a fascinating history. The series stars Andy Samberg as Detective Jake Peralta, a goofy cop who loves "Die Hard" and making sex tape jokes while working a case. The sitcom hails from iconic comedy creators and has had a devoted fanbase throughout its run, but was canceled by Fox after its 5th season. NBC revived it for three more, yet after the Black Lives Matter protests of 2020, many long running police shows reexamined the way they propagated the police states. Wh...

The Biggest Surprises And Shocks From The 2021 Emmy Awards

Last night's ceremony was the least-surprising Emmy Awards in quite some time. Of course "The Crown" swept the drama awards. Of course "Ted Lasso" (mostly) swept the comedy awards. Of course popular, hip genre shows like "The Mandalorian" and "WandaVision" didn't make a dent in the major categories. The running joke among TV fans online was that voters clearly only watched a handful of (the whitest) shows before voting.But that doesn't mean there weren't surprises. And shocks. And disappointment...
