What I liked

Loved his music and singing. A real high point in the show. And some lovely vulnerable stories and moments. Nice use of some voice over.

What I didn't like

Each transition started the same way: “Wooo!Here I am in ______” Became too pat. Sometimes it’s too overwritten (the ending message for example “Create your OWN satisfaction” among others) was too repetitive and too predictable. Look for more economy and surprise in the story. For example what was GOOD was when the affair with the guy did NOT work out like his obsession with the movies, that was a nice surprise and did not expect that it would not work out. Use the lighting more for effect and time travel. Remember to keep playing the entire room not just front if you have folks on the sides of the house

My overall impression

Interesting and insightful story about having Aspberger’s.
