The New Entertainment Trend Is Something Old And Comforting

It seems a pandemic isn’t the time to discover new things. Instead, we’re clinging to that which brings us comfort. According to a recent study on entertainment choices amid the COVID-19 outbreak, the current trend in entertainment is actually an old favorite. Nielsen found that more than half of us have rewatched episodes TV shows we’ve seen before and a whopping 87 percent of respondents are sticking with the same music we love normally. The report also notes that 60 percent are spending more time with entertainment, and close to 8 in 10 have signed up for a new streaming service such as Netflix or Hulu.

I for one am diving into anything new. I am just started “The Americans” last night and will probably get around to “Schitt’s Creek”, while I have really been enjoying the adaptation of Philip Roth’s “The Plot Against America” on HBO despite the amount of anxiety that accompanies it. I highly recommend reading the book if you haven’t.
