Malaysians Can Finally Laugh at the Pandemic Life With TV Drama ‘Covid Oh Covid’

As living with the COVID-19 virus has become quite the norm for most of us, what with experiencing first-hand, the stress, uncertainty and difficulties living in the pandemic can be, it has become almost expected that we will be having TV shows and movies about the pandemic life.

Of course, living in the pandemic is not all bad as it has also given us the opportunity to grow closer as a family and given us ample time in pursuing our hobbies. You would be surprised at the amount of time and money you save by working at home.

With all that in mind, local drama ‘Covid Oh Covid’ seeks to capture the very essence of living in the pandemic with a little added humor. The drama series is set in Tuan Ariffin’s (Tony Eusoff) home where his wife Habsah (Adibah Noor) is extremely worried about contracting the deadly virus and as such she is extremely paranoid about the safety of her family as well as being a stickler for the SOP’s.

Together, the odd husband and wife have 4 adult children, all of which are as quirky as the next. There is; Suhaila (Nora Danish), an influencer who is obsessed about her wedding and also furious that she has to keep postponing it due to the MCO, Safura (Tiz Zaqyah) who is your quintessential goody-two-shoes who spends most of her time helping the needy, Salmiah (Nabila Huda) who appears to have a rather rocky relationship with her mother due to a past incident and Shazrul (Nasiruddin Alaydrus) who is trying to investigate his father’s suspicious behavior.

In addition to the all-star cast, viewers are also treated to the performance of Umie Aida who plays Hasbah’s mum who has Alzheimer’s.

Much like most families with clashing personalities, conflict is bound to happen and when it does, we as viewers are treated to plenty of hilarious and heartwarming moments.

The series first premiered on 2 April and you can catch in on TV3 every Wednesdays to Saturdays at 9pm.
