Gray & amp; apos; s Anatomy, The Good Doctor … Are the series right to integrate the coronavirus into their plots?


The new episodes of our favorite series have arrived and with them, the intrigues around the coronavirus. Good or bad idea?

After months of waiting and considerable delays on the sets of our favorite series, the new episodes have finally arrived. From This Is Us to Grey's Anatomy through The Good Doctor, many series have chosen to integrate the Coronovirus pandemic into their plots , this event that paralyzes the planet for many months and transforms the daily lives of millions of people. Confinement, masks, social distancing, family reunions by zoom, our favorite characters also live it on the screen . But is it really a good idea? If we understand the desire to deal with this so important upheaval in series that want to be “close” to reality, we are not necessarily for.

Indeed, while we have been living this situation for months already, when the lives of millions of people are turned upside down, we feel more than ever the need to escape through films, books and obviously series . So, when we sit down for a few hours, the time to immerse ourselves in our favorite shows, we don't necessarily want to see the characters live the same thing as us and above all, we prefer that fiction remain fiction. See the doctors of Gray Sloan Memorial the fight against the pandemic does not distract us, while we already see this all day long in the news s. Above all, the medical series, usually, often allow themselves to take liberties on the realism of their intrigues (shooting, ferry accident, plane crash, incurable disease finally cured, impossible diagnoses), why this sudden need for '' be so grounded in reality?

Without forgetting that, on the length, this intrigue cannot last. You know, every medical series likes to brag about having real geniuses in their hospital. How quickly could they then find the cure for Covid 17 ? 3 episodes, 4? Choosing to deal with the pandemic can dangerously slow down plots when some series are already running out of steam. In the end, we would prefer that the writers ignore this event which has already controlled our lives for more than 8 months, and invent for us other intrigues which are indeed fiction. At this rate, we would almost expect the Avengers to arrive, with their masks, to save us all … If you too want to escape reality, we recommend the Dash & Lily series on Netflix, love, the Christmas spirit and no coronavirus!
