Derek
25 June 2012 | by (N.Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is amazing viewing folks. I have to say that i am a fan of Ricky, Karl and Stephen's stuff but not blindly and I would be quick to say that this is not a comedy but does have some very funny bits in it... i have an autistic son and Ricky has captured some of his conditions perfectly in this. For me the show really concentrates on how people with these problems are often 'more human' than us normals!!

I will watch this again and again i'm sure, however i kinda hope that he doesn't make a series out of it, it will gain a better status as a one of. This is such a difficult topic to make a show about and get it right but Ricky has managed just that.
