big fan of the fat lad with black hair and glasses. wish we saw more of him.
Enjoyed it, the nicky kid reminded me so much of my brother. Felt a bit like crying at the end, not sure why.
I was hoping it was going to be more about the process of classification of autism or the scientific side of it, although I guess that wouldn't be very Louis Theroux. Enjoyed the bit where Nicky was reading Louis Theroux's wikipedia page.
I felt sorry for him but ultimately, he is a "normal" adult in a a situation he can walk away from, and in it was a little bit like bringing a thimble of water to put out a fire.
When he said "hello" and was totally ignored. I felt sorry for him then.
Was interesting to see how so many of the parents seemed to have so much faith in God despite the challenges of raising a child with severe autism. If that didn't test their faith I don't know what would.
tbf at least one of them thought they were given an autistic child by god as a punishment
it was a bit awkward when louis questioned the woman with the two kids and she was brutally honest about how hard she had had it
They could have done a whole programme on him to be honest.
down to the bits where people were killing themselves.
Sensitive and informed
The way he demolished that taco was incredible.
in Autism Awareness Month
Will have to look it up.
were bopping to the Mexican music in the back of the car was good. And the bit where Nicky was googling him.
Thanks for the heads up. Theroux is pretty fabulous at this kind of thing.
i think they do.
Nicky was ace
but went out for dinner and forgot to sky plus it. does anyone know if it will be repeated?
But yeah I really want to see this, it's an issue quite close to home
were delightfully camp?
and then can we have 130+ replies about campophobic stereotyping?
in the backround "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!"
p sure tonight with him meeting old people with dementia will be the saddest, bleakest hour of television ever
