didnt turn out to be a bad program imo, i got the impression it had been produced in a responsibly way. suprisingly it turned out closer to 'feelgood' than freakshow.
Yeah, I'd agree with that. The AS guy's issue wasn't portrayed as the AS, it's that he's a twat.
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. _________________ The butterfly, the tiger, just another shadow in the stone

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:
