Cast Offs

Recommended Posts

Anyone watching?

Six disabled people are left alone on an island with a pile of cameras to see how their disabilities affect their ability to survive. Each episode follows one of the characters on the island, and gives some background as to their life before arriving on the island. The characters are frequently rude, sexual and provocative, poking fun at one another and exploiting each other's disabilities.

It's on channel four and you can get the first two episodes now online:

Cast Offs - Channel 4

In my opinion it's good to see channel four putting out some reasonable drama that explores uncharted territory and even parodies the unchecked flow of turgid reality shows this channel has been responsible for over the past decade. It's a funny programme, which deals with disability seriously yet without the po-faced sentimentalism of other representations. Recommended.
