The music in Britannia, all the 70s rock and (psych) folk, freaks me out. It turns the show into something weirder than it actually is. I wonder if it's the same for UK viewers.

I think a much greater threat to cultural life today than "cancel culture" or "political correctness" is the refusal to invest cash in new ideas and writers, and the anxiery around innovation. Why take a risk on new characters and stories, when you can offer soothing nostalgia?
