I'm not going to check back on this, I just need some way to get my word out and hope it reaches people with power. I'm in season 2 of Blacklist and love it more than anything I've watched lately. I also noticed that it seems to take place in the present of each season, and I'm dreading the idea of catching up to 2020 and having to watch people run around in masks and such. I am not coping well with the pandemic and I don't want to have to choose between missing out on a show I love and being triggered with pandemic references. I hope the powers that be will decide to just have it take place in a sort of slightly alternate reality in which the pandemic never happened.
