What do you think of the channel 4 series The Undateables?

I absolutely love the show but know that many share different views.

    I haven't seen it, but I never see anything except C4 news nowadays, I know that TV is a lifeline for many people but we have friends who watch it from getting up to going to bed when they are capable of doing much more, what a waste of two lives. (rant over)
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    Is everything ok? Correct me if I'm wrong but it sounds like you are having a bad day from some of your previous replies on other topics.

    @woodbine I hope things get better soon  <3

    @RacheleLeahSilvera Great topic.  Overall I like the programme.  The people on it are real characters and it's heart warming to see the dates and relationships begin to develop.  

    However, I think it can attract some viewers who delight in mocking those taking part, with negative comments aimed at their impairments.  This makes me uneasy and, I believe, reflects the notion that non-disabled people are somehow superior and can pass judgement.  No, just no!  Impairments aren't entertainment and disabled people are your equal  :s

    I've applied to go on it 3 times... Meh, I live too far North IMO, most of the dates were centred round the South East coast, Brighton etc, although they did have one over in Lincolnshire.
