Review of Mysterious Creatures



After much deliberation of whether I watched this or not I decided to. I think that it was eye opening but very distressing to watch.


For those of you who didn’t see it. The programme was on at 9pm on 29th October 2006. It was based on a true story about the Ainscow family. They consisted of a couple who had a daughter who has Aspergers Syndrome at the age of 32.


The way it was done wasn’t very balanced out. To tell a proper story I think they needed both sides. Lisa’s side and the parent’s side would be a much better way to present it. Then the audience that were watching it could have made up their minds what they felt about it knowing both sides.


I can see why the girl has her obsession with spending money on shoes etc. In my opinion she was trying to buy something that she couldn't find in life, she was trying to fill the hole by spending money on things.


It was very confusing to follow and the story line seemed all over the place. But it seemed a rather sad story and I feel sorry for the family. I felt like offering help to them but knew I couldn’t because I have nothing that could help them.


All in all it proves the struggle there is for people who have Aspergers Syndrome to get the help that they need before it’s to late. It highlights the need for services to improve for us or their will be more stories like that happening.


It was a good insight into the problems that could happen if things are left without the help being available that is needed to correct the problem that is destroying people’s lives.
