This journey has made me a stronger and a more confident person, it may not work for everyone with a disability but I felt it worked for me. I think that the show is a credit to someone like myself because it focuses on who the person is rather than how their disability affects them. To anyone with a disability I say this, this show made me confident and wiser, I got to meet someone great and if you think this show could help you to date then I encourage you to apply.

Charlie Gearon | Posted 11.09.2017 | UK Entertainment
Charlie Gearon

As Bojack Horseman moved through its first three seasons, the comedy seemed more and more to take a back seat to its discourse on mental health. This most recent series, like its preceding season, is still full of laugh out loud humour, but continues to confront the audience with challenging scenes and a refreshingly three-dimensional depiction of mental-health issues.

What makes this case so unique, is that five out of the six were said to suffer from Memory Distrust Syndrome. They started to distrust of their own minds and furthermore what was suggested to them during interrogation became more real than their own recollections. Memory Distrust Syndrome can create confusion so extreme that people may confess to crimes they didn't commit - even something as a serious as murder.

Important as seasons like this are, we're committed to reflecting life for the LGBTQ+ community year round, in all its complexity, diversity and variety. My very personal hope is that the films in this season inspire LGBTQ+ people all over the country and, that in 10 years' time, when Britain marks the 60th anniversary that a film about homophobic violence in Britain belongs very firmly in the past.

At the obligatory 'boy loses girl' moment of the film, Boone desperately tries to tell James how much he likes her. Her response? A dry but true: "Of course you do, everyone does. I'm friggin' dope." Yeah, Jessica, you are, and it's time everyone knew.

It will be interesting to see whether the success of Love Island heralds a new era in reality TV, with more structure and less focus on any actual reality and more on escapism and fantasy. Perhaps taking viewers back to a time or a place in their lives when all they had to worry about was who they fancied, what to wear by the pool or how long they were going to sunbathe, will prove increasingly popular.

Whether you love it or hate it, there's no denying that reality television has a firm grasp over modern culture, perhaps more so than any other art form. In fact, it wouldn't be an overstatement to say it has changed the world... surely that makes it legitimate?
