65INSIGHT: TED LASSO EXPECTATIONS

This week Catherine and I finish our walk & talk with a conversation about Ted Lasso, and how it is good for your characters (and your audiences) to subvert expectations.

Catherine and I are committed to walking 65 miles in six weeks as part of the 65 Roses 65 Mile Challenge. We are raising money for Cystic Fibrosis research in honor of our niece, Harper.

Each week we are also committing to posting an insight into movies, TV, theater or other aspects of our industry just as we finish our walks. Or if we need a break, during our walks. Mostly because as a couch potato, my favorite workouts involve marathoning with a remote.

Arm Badge of Courage

Ongoing guessing game: Where’s this prop from? This patch for costuming hangs on the walls at Asbury University in part because the TV show was shot, in part, in Kentucky.

That should be plenty of clues. What TV show was this used in?

Dialogue as Choreography

A tidbit on approaching dialogue from a production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.

Beauty Part Three – Coach

We’ve been looking at the concept of beauty. Part one and part two.

The big lesson seems to be trying to see each other as God sees us, rather than how the world tells us to see.

Want to know what that would look like? Here is a scene from Cheers that gives us a glimpse. The scene is with Coach (one of the bartenders) and his daughter. She is engaged to be married to a man that mistreats her. Coach has decided it is time to confront his daughter.

Notice that Coach is not very bright.

And incredibly wise.

May you all have a Coach in your life; and may you see yourself as he sees you.

jmt,

Sean
