Heart-warming, but typical Channel 4 attitude.
23 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This show promised so much from the previews - It genuinely looked like a documentary into the struggle those with disabilities have in finding love, more so than us more able bodied people. Unfortunately, due to it being from Channel 4 - they have put their own twist on it.

Firstly, this show isn't in the same league of demeaning, lowest common denominator programming that is typical for Channel 4 (See such wonderful programmes such as: Dogging Tales, Benefits Streets, What Happens In Sunny Beach And Kavos). But that doesn't mean it is completely innocent.

The show features different individuals with different disorders each episode, with 'catch up' episodes at the end of the series (and part way through the 3rd series) so we can see how things are going.

The individuals on the show are genuinely lovely, and get some positive results with securing dates, so the show really does help these people.

However, I find that there is a tone of "these people are not wanted" from the way they are spoken about, which maybe is aimed to tug at the heart strings, or is done to add to the desperation they face.

It does however highlight some of the disabilities that we forget people struggle with, and may help people with these ailments to be better understood in society.
