Mrs Lothor and I have noticed that the Olympics coverage on the TV has been less overblown and, well, obnoxious than in previous years. The TV has been on in the background, and there seems to be less obsessing with gold, and I don't think I've yet seen a medals table (even though Japan are currently top), a slow-motion medley of athletes having their moments of glory with stirring music in the background, or a huge room of people shrieking "Nippon! Nippon!". There is still virtually no coverage of big stories that don't involve Japanese people (Simone Biles' withdrawal from the gymnastic event) but the coverage seems to be less hysterical and more factual this time.
