295. Don’t Go to Movie Theatres. Wear A Mask. This Isn’t Hard.

June 21st, 2020 · Comments

Cinema chains in the UK and the US are planning to start opening up again next month, even though Coronavirus cases still remain high in both countries, and in some areas are spiking to dangerous new highs. Emily and Ed go over the economic and moral quandary that theatres find themselves in, particulary AMC and its (quickly reversed) decision to not force customers to wear face masks because they didn't want to get caught in a "political controversy." They also talk about the Watchmen TV series and how it became even more resonant mere months after it finished airing, the unexpected new Daria spinoff Jodie, and the passing of Ian Holm.
