Reviews

All six episodes of the Channel 4 mockumentary comedy drama series based on the format of reality shows such as 'Shipwrecked' and 'Castaway'. In an attempt to boost ratings, two television producers come up with the idea of marooning six people - each with a different disability - on a remote Scottish island. The series takes the form of six faux documentaries following each of the 'cast offs' as they struggle to overcome the challenges presented by living on the island as they build their own homes, grow their own food, fall in love and fight to survive. The series also tells each character's 'back-story' through flashback sequences portraying the year leading up to their arrival on the island.

This TV series is amazing, no longer do people with disabilities have their stories downgraded to "human interest" or feelgood sap pieces. Strong characters with real lives have been a long time coming. Bravo from a wannabe cast off!

Wonderful original programming - humanizing our fellow human beings who we so often fail to see as human beings. Cudo's to all.

No I haven't seen all episodes, as the final one is playing this evening. But I feel it's a must see - delightful and enlightening
