  1. I saw Ted Lasso for the first time with my first free trial at AppleTV and liked it enough to watch it last winter when I scored a second three months, and just remember the Colin character as someone who was essentially shown as a blind follower for Jamie Tart (the actor of whom, at least, got undressed and looked good/athletic while just wondering around a scene in his underwear. I also remember him as one of the characters who were originally blasting on the Nate character when he was the teams glorified water boy/gear guy. Otherwise, he doesn’t stand out, so I went on line to see if I could find and clips on You Tube or elsewhere, particularly the Grindr mention that everyone is falling all over themselves to report on, because it barely nudged my brain cells as a memory – when I found it, I though the same thing I thought then – oh a cis white straight dude knows about Grindr, BFD.

    I also found this pretty hilarious attempt by someone to posit a fan fic type relationship between the tall bearded foreign (Scandinavian?) player and Colin, which just feels like a tri-hard fan cam video. I thought this episode was handled well, down to the last minute seen with the journalist, for that will he or won’t he out him drama that likely won’t really play a role in the story.

    But I don’t really care about this actor or his past roles, not when he’s just – as far as we can see – as gay as Jason, or Brett. I don’t care about their past roles or their acting career either. And aren’t there plenty of gay actors, artists, musicians, politicians, etc. Hell, I’ll even take another story about a fucking drag queen.

    Yes, definitely – report on the plot, it’s a popular show, but make sure you’re reporting on other similar plots. DC comics has revealed a whole slew of beefcake and cheesecake covers for gay pride, and I had to read about those first at reddit!
