Review: Ted – The TV Series

Ted is a hilarious throwback that will have you rolling with laughter from start to finish. Embracing its juvenile and puerile humor with gusto, this series perfectly captures the essence of the iconic talking teddy bear and his mischievous antics.

Set in the glorious era of the 90s, “Ted TV” channels the vibe of classic sitcoms with a modern twist, reminiscent of the likes of “Alf” but with an abundance of swearing that adds an extra layer of immaturity to prceedings. It’s a nostalgic trip down memory lane for those who grew up in the era, and a riotous ride for newcomers with plenty of nods of things to come in the Ted movies i.e. plenty of Flash Gordon references.

Giorga Whigham’s portrayal of Blaire, John’s cousin, is an absolute show-stealer. Her comedic timing and infectious energy light up the screen in every scene she graces. Whigham’s performance is simply fantastic, injecting the series with a refreshing dose of wit and charm. Max Burkholder as the younger John is great too, he manages to pull off a near flawless impression of Mark Wahlberg throughout the series.

Each episode is packed with absurd situations, witty one-liners, and plenty of irreverent humor that keeps you hooked from beginning to end. Whether it’s John getting into trouble or Ted wreaking havoc with his outrageous actions, there’s never a dull moment in “Ted TV.”

Overall, “Ted” is a must-watch for fans of the original films and anyone in need of a good laugh. With its blend of nostalgia, crude humor, and standout performances, this series is a comedic gem that will leave you eagerly awaiting the next episode.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
