How COVID is Affecting My Perception of TV

Set in the Present

This was me for the past 4 months or so, but instead of me being confused by movies/TV shows set in modern times, I’ll be like “hey, they’re not physical distancing” to movies/TV shows set in the past, future, in space, etc.

(In One Piece—a series written well before COVID, set in an alternate world, there’s several episodes with scenes showing a bunch of doctors geared up in surgical gowns, eye coverings, masks, gloves, etc and I thought “cool”. Then when they removed their eye coverings and masks, I was like “NO DON’T TAKE OFF THE MASKS”. Then “oh wait”)
