It cringes me every time I see somebody more or less in their right mind in bed with shoes. How this become so common on TV (e.g. Buffy, Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, whatever).
I understand that shooting socks may look lame and you need to allow some time to deboot between bursting in tears and splashing on bed, but do you know of other reasons for TV guys to stay in bed with shoes?
One ideal answer would be: "In this interview producer Whois said she grew tired of looking dirty socks on screen so decided to just allow people with shoes in bed". Even better if producer Whois is able to share this experience directly here.
Alternatively, one may just say that laying in bed with shoes on is considered completely normal in US and everybody does it.
