Just A Cough

Panel 1 - Ed: What happened to people coughing in films? Remember when someone coughing meant they were gonna die from terminal plot convenience? Panel 2 - Sam: I guess writers and directors stopped doing it after everyone caught on... Panel 3 - Sam: I mean god bless the internet for making everyone more connected... Panel 4 - Sam: But I guess the downside is the “old ways” are gonna die out a lot faster... Panel 5 - Sam: I think audiences are just too savvy for the whole “this character is coughing so you know something is wrong” trope... Panel 6 - Sam: ... Now characters get nose bleeds when something’s up.
