Americans Are More Nostalgic Than Ever During The Pandemic


Studies are now showing that Americans are more nostalgic than they have been in a long time. The reason? Quarantine. A survey showed that many people are rewatching some of their old favorite television shows and movies.

They also found that some of the top nostalgic shows and movies were Seinfeld, Jurassic Park, and Indiana Jones. Many shows and movies had to stop filming during the pandemic, so it also may have drawn people to watch old shows again.

It is no surprise. Rewatching shows that you already watched and love can bring a sense of comfort in trying times. Many people have also been reminiscing about better times. The most common things people are reminiscing about is traveling, seeing family, and big events like weddings.
