Thread: I'm going to be on a Canadian TV series

  1. #21
    great first ep! i'm glad the AB woman is not some naive person with no prior experience or association with disability.

    I'm curious why you went home to do your care program. was it mainly privacy issue and they couldn't arrange that without camera/people intrusion or was it just your personal preference?

    The bathrooms weren't wheelchair accessible. I could roll in, but not far enough to get to the shower/over the toilet.

    They should have used that on the show - would have been a great opportunity and learning experience! Often living spaces may have "accessible" entrances and other areas can be modified for wc user and accommodate differing functions (like the door handle you showed and kitchen area etc.) but bathrooms can be tricky and more difficult and expensive to modify.

    Misleading on the "accessible" apartment!!

    Seriously tho, it is a shame they neglected or intentionally chose (in which case it's curious why) to hide that fact.

    It gets mentioned throughout the show. There's ten episodes! I can see both sides though... the production didn't have the budget to adapt an apartment they were renting for only four months, and it was fine for the other 7 housemates. I could have had my care done in bed but... no.

    Ok, Ok! I'll be patient

    I understand budget issues....and yea, I wouldn't want to do the bed thing either, in that situation.

    I'm caught up with ep2. You do a great job describing and explaining things as you go!



    btw. it was cool we got to see Amy - "I love you" awwww

    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Yes - eppy 3. I'm surprised/not that they didn't bleep that out ... surprised because of the nature of that channel, but not surprised because it's Canada and not against any broadcasting laws.

    Sandro is a tall drink of water at ... I think he said ... 6'7" 250lbs! It's too bad the stroke took away the inflection in his voice, but he speaks very well and very clearly! The woman who happens to be blind blows me away too.
