E34 - [TV] Special - Season 2 (2021) (Part I)


Today we watched disabled writer Ryan O'Connell continue to navigate the romantic and professional hurdles of daily life with cerebral palsy in the first half of Special Season 2. Again the show proves to be the most authentic, funny, and unflinching look at disabled life - so much so that it often feels too real, and provokes many of Jamie's personal demons. Throughout the episode, we discuss the wheelie temptation to downplay our limitations, the tendency to settle for unhealthy boundaries in romantic relationships, whether its ever okay to fetishize unflattering elements of disability, and the ongoing struggle of discussing disability with our parents.
