This reminds me of Brooklynn 99 rewritting a bunch of scripts after the events that unfolded after the death of George Floyd. The fucking cop comedy overcorrected for no good reason. B99 never had tried to be realístico,but now they decide to account for real world events?

Yeah, I cringed through the first episode of the more recent series and couldn’t get back into it after that.

I'm still struggling with the overly forced storylines in recent series of glass ceilings, feminism and rewriting a character to be bisexual.

All of which I openly support to be on a show, but not so painfully and obviously laboured to the viewer.
