If TV Shows were set during Self-Isolation
Self-isolation made me do it.
Ah self-isolation… Is it day nine or 900? Who knows?! None of us have worn pants in weeks and who knew going for a walk could feel so rebellious.
These are very strange times with a lot of inconveniences and disappointing panic buys. If you’re going to panic buy at least buy something good like a trampoline or a horse… Toilet roll? Really?
In these desperate times, however, comes desperate photoshop.
“But what if some of my favourite TV shows were made during coronavirus?” I hear you ask.
Fear not, with thanks to Photoshop and my own deteriorating sanity, I have accomplished just that.
The episode would obviously be called The one with Coronavirus.
Joey would be first to get it after eating jam off the floor. Monica would ironically get it next despite being the cleanest of the group and subsequently pass it on to her husband Chandler 'Could I BE any more infected?!' Bing.
Phoebe would believe it’s a government conspiracy and that it doesn’t exist and write a song about it. Rachel would spend thousands on a designer hazmat suit believing it would protect her and inevitably spend the episode walking around like a life-sized johnny. And Ross, well Ross would just bloody get it because he’s Ross wouldn’t he?
This episode would primarily focuses on Ned Flanders trying to “pray the Covid away” and going door to door as a “Cohovid Witness” (you better believe I’m proud of that pun).
Bart would fake having the symptoms to get out of school while Homer tries to plan a way in which he's forced to self-isolate at Moe’s tavern.
Po was the most fitting Teletubbie to remain because well, Povid. Porona Virus. The potential for pun-ography is endless really, which is all that matters in this non-existent TV show.
Social-distancing between Po and The Sun is key here, however and the sun must always remain two kilometres from Po to reduce the risk of passing on the virus as well as reduce the risk of sunburn to Po’s already lobster-burnt skin.
Honestly, I just thought this would look funny having one half of a show’s title removed and it was.
I don’t watch enough Rick and Morty to judge how an episode would go down. But Rick would do some crazy science shit and be unable to undo or reverse it without the help of the ever-naïve Morty. He would subsequently suffer a fatality as a result and the show would end after just one episode. Leading to the shows spin-off Rick and Mortuary.
I think it’s time I go get some fresh air now.
