I'm stupid (I know - you're not surprised at the admission).

Let's face it, there are multiple reasons why that's a fair accusation - but those relevant to the thread title are as follows:

    1) I found out about the first season LONG after it had finished initial release (which was Aug-Sept 2020) - and that was by watching an episode of Graham Norton where someone mentioned how DIFFERENT the show was . . .
        . . . no real details - just "what we need today" (or words to that effect). It still took me a while to do some digging and then watch. I'm stupid.

    2) With all the nastiness and stress going on in real lives - this will raise plenty of smiles for those who watch it. As such, I've been meaning to start a thread here for MONTHS, but didn't. I'm stupid.

    3) Once I started watching season 1, I couldn't stop - ended up binge-watching all ten 30-minute episodes over 3 days. After every episode I would think "Start a thread on The Clubhouse". I didn't. I'm stupid.

    4) I was well-primed for season 2, waiting excitedly for it to start in July. I thought - "NOW start that thread on The Clubhouse" - I didn't. I'm stupid.

    5) Last Friday saw the release of S02E08 (with 4 more left in the season). After every episode of Season 2 I've thought (* OK - you can see where this is going by now . . . *)

Anyways - by all means do your own research, but trust me, WELL worth tracking down.

I'd hate to overhype it - but truly - it's the most charming, uplifting, encouraging, thoughtful, funny show I think I've EVER seen. It absolutely IS "different".

Don't get put off that it's centered around a UK football (soccer) team - that's NOT the heartbeat of the show. The charm actually comes from the characters, their relationships, and how they make you fall in love with them, and want them to succeed and be happy.

There's also no laugh track - which is certainly a plus!

With the exception of 3 people - Jason Sudeikis, an Amazon that was seen on "Game Of Thrones" seasons 5 & 6, and one of Buffy's old buddies, the actors are likely unknown to most of you. That probably adds to the enjoyment as they REALLY fit well into their roles - like they were BORN for them. Perfect casting on EVERYONE.

Once you get to the end of S01E02, you'll likely be hooked.

This should win EVERY award it is nominated for (and that's a LOT!)

I think you'll love it.

But then what do I know - I'm stupid.
