Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Love in the Time of Corona is a romantic comedy-themed fictional miniseries about the lives of different people who are sheltered in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. There's some strong innuendo, including discussions about having babies, and crude sexual references. Racism is discussed, is is the rebuilding of relationships during difficult times. There's some occasional cursing ("a--hole", "s--t") and drinking (wine, beer) is frequent. Apple products and Dell computers are prominently shown.
Is It Any Good?
This four-part romantic comedy, which was produced during the COVID-19 pandemic (under stringent safety guidelines), offers a combination of lighthearted humor and heartfelt moments. The folks living in each household face their own set of unique challenges, all of which requires a renegotiation of the relationships they have with the folks they are sheltered in place with. In doing so, they learn more about who they are living with, and about themselves.
The chemistry between the cast is strong, in part because of the real-live married couples (and one offspring) who star in it. This helps with the show's overall intention, which is to paint a positive picture within a very unsettling time that promises no certain ending. Overall, Love in the Time of Corona is a feel-good miniseries that is bright and entertaining.
Did we miss something on diversity?
