The Pop TV series' "final moment struck me harder than I expected it to," says Constance Grady. "But it turns out that there is something very poignant, to those of us sheltering in place, confined to a world that is abruptly much smaller than the one we lived in just weeks ago, about watching a family who went from a mansion to a motel suite finish up their time in that suite. The coronavirus pandemic is much deadlier and much more consequential than anything that sweet Schitt’s Creek would ever address, and those of us who are sheltering in place rather than out on the front lines as essential workers are the lucky ones. But part of what art can do is pick up unexpected resonances as times shift. Schitt’s Creek is a fantasy about a family who moved from a vast, open, luxurious world to a tiny and difficult one, and the fantasy is that in this second world they find fulfillment and warmth and love. And now, as it comes to a close, that fantasy feels much closer and more urgent than it used to. Perhaps we can take it with us, even as the Rose family’s time in the town of Schitt’s Creek comes to an end."
