Yeah, I'd agree with that. The AS guy's issue wasn't portrayed as the AS, it's that he's a twat.

Despite the name "Beauty and the Beast", I liked the first episode a lot due to how good looking the burns victim was that I thought "Why is this exploitive again?"

It'll be interesting to see how it goes though, since Aspergers isn't a physical disability.

I didnt find him particularly unlikeable (perhaps thats because i might also be a twat) and to be fair he may have had solvent intoxication from deploying an entire aerosol can in an enclosed space!

I can hardly believe that an 'aspie' would ever do such a thing, it just shows how diverse a group this label is. I would run a mile from someone prone to doing something like that. Actually no, your right i can see it now - he is definately a twat.

I watched the first episode, LOLs were had (I am ashamed to say I am your average "sensitive freak show" viewer). I understand the brittle bones girl for wanting someone none-disabled, it must be frustrating to have the fact that you're physically disabled rubbed in your face all the time.
I was surprised the aspie guy turned down the French woman, they seemed to get on well and the woman seemed to enjoy his company.

Got the file prepared now and I'm uploading it (even including adverts for you Ausländers!). Stay tuned!

Having seen the first episode it seems ok so far. I'm not sure quite what Richard did that was so objectionable, mildly irritating at worst maybe (but then so is everyone at times, myself included).

OK, here's the video. It's complete, with a few minutes of the proceeding programme and all original advertisements as aired. This might irritate some natives but foreigners not used to British advertising might enjoy the advert for Bisto, for instance.

So, without further ado:

(Beware the scramble for 1sec at the beginning - everything should run fine from then on.)

In my opinon people who have AS are more dateable then the NT world for the simple fact that we are often smarter and have a better outlook on life :D

UK forumers are going to have to 4OD it, but it says it's blocked on Youtube in this region, maybe some of our non-UK foruming friends can test it?

It's blocked in the UK, Ireland and the Crown Dependencies. Foreigners will still be able to watch it, just not people from the British Isles.

No, because she's currently in the UK. She could watch it if she gets a non-UK IP address though from somewhere.
