'No-one asked for the 'new normal.' I was quite happy with the 'old normal.'

In the first of a new series, 19-year-old Ruthie is feeling the generation gap particularly keenly, reluctantly furloughed from the Universtiy of York and trapped in lockdown with her ma and pa. In this first episode she delves into cinema history, explaining to her dad the 'cool girl' trope in modern movies, and luxuriating in 'comfort TV,' Gilmore Girls and How I Met Your Mother. Meanwhile, as Ruthie and dad swap music suggestions, there's a taste of Bob Dylan, Jeremy Zucker, and Kanye West.
