“Why is everything so difficult?” grumbles 26-year-old Michael as his path to true love hits another boulder. As well as the usual dating challenges, Michael has to contend with autism and a mild learning disability: in one date, he dutifully reads questions off his phone that were suggested by his mum in a rehearsal.
This is the return of the match-making series for people
with disabilities that divided opinion – enlightening or exploitative? The intrusion of cameras must make stress-related symptoms worse, but there are touching scenes. As well as Michael, we meet a 21-year-old with Tourette syndrome and a 22-year-old whose stroke left her unable to remember simple words.
Return of the documentary following people with a range of restrictive conditions as they search for romance. Michael, 26, has struggled in relationships due to his autism, but he's hoping a speed-dating evening will help him meet his ideal woman. Brent, 21, has been living with Tourette's syndrome for years, but when he was in love, his tics virtually disappeared and he's looking to recapture that feeling, while Sarah, who suffered a stroke at the age of 18, is going boating with a city worker as she tries to find her ideal man.
