    My mom mentioned this show to me the other day and yesterday I found it online (link below). Have any of you seen this? What do you think of it?

    I didn't finish it, but I was a little distracted by the face of the [Indian?] woman. (It was more brown than her neck & upper chest...)

    "Do you hate people?" Only about 99% of them. That's why I try to be a decent person, so I don't add to the ever-growing pile of human garbage that's destroying this planet. But being a human myself, I rarely succeed.

    I was confused by @Crossbreed's comment but I found out there is at least one different versions of this show (in Canada).

    I watched one here in Australia yesterday - a family member recorded it for me to watch - and it was really great. Though we are all so different I did feel an affinity with many of those who took part. It was nice, though it described some of the more difficult aspects, too.

    Of course, those on the show were able to speak for themselves (at least most of them, most of the time) and this is not always the case.

    ABC's Aussie version can be seen here if you're in Australia: You Can't Ask That

    On the clip that I viewed, there was an [Indian?] woman whose face had a noticeably different color than her neck & visible chest (probably due to makeup). I found it to be very distracting.

    In my hobby [1:6 figure collecting], I frequently re-body figures with the same unintentional results. That is why it jumped out at me.

    Sorry if I wasn't clear @Crossbreed. I worked out that I had seen a different version (that didn't have the woman with the makeup). :p I totally understand why that would have been distracting, though.
