I personally found this documentary rather uncomfortable to watch. The whole idea of them being 'undateable' already labels the people involved negatively, and watching the programme only a gave a narrow viewpoint of these people. The whole set-up of the programme was awkward, with parts in which you didn't know whether or not to feel sorry for the people involved. Yes, it pinpoints a rather niche subject and brings attention nationally to these people, in an attempt, to show the world that they are just like everyone else, but the show does not portray this well, or in fact, at all. To add, the narrator's tone of voice combined with the whole idea of the show is almost comedic and this is hardly acceptable for such a programme. I'd also like to point out that the narrator, Sally Phillips, is an actress famous for her roles in comedy films/programmes - hardly appropriate for a programme like this. As someone who has experienced autism and other high-severity disorders many times, I find it almost offensive how the people are portrayed. Overall, another poorly-constructed and badly thought-through Channel 4 documentary; Channel 4 at its worst. I strongly do NOT recommend watching this.
