Like the recent Peacock comedy Intelligence (my review), this new series from Apple features another actor bringing his American sensibilities to England. This time it’s Justin Sudeikis, playing a football coach who transfers to a failing soccer team (a sport he knows nothing about). This show relies largely on Sudeikis, who delivers a lovable, somewhat clueless but always optimistic charmer. There are the inevitable fish out of water moments, but the assortment of supporting characters adds to the fun. Interestingly, Nick Mohammed, who created Intelligence, also plays an enjoyable comic role in this. The series does sometimes fall into sitcom safety (it was co-created by Bill Lawrence, best known for Scrubs), but the earnest heart and sweet individuals make the show appealing. (Total 10 episodes with new ones being released every Friday)

 

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)
