Something I’ve been thinking about lately: the main reason most new TV shows + movies seem like they’re set in the late 20th century (and much before!) is not so much nostalgia but simply because it’s easier to write interesting plotlines pre-mobile phone, pre-digital ubiquity.

I think it goes deeper than the visual constraints. Watching an episode of Seinfeld and noting how soon the premise falls apart if everyone had cell phones is a funny and illustrative game to play.
