Seems like an interesting show, though I don't live in Australia so I can't watch it. I'll find a torrent as soon as I get home and then update once I watch a few episodes. Until then, which character is it? I might be able to pull up some information.

EDIT: Just watched the episode, and I have to say that Alex is adorable and a pretty good representation of an ABDL. He really made me reflect on why I'm a caretaker.

Wikipedia says:

"Jizz" December 12, 2007 Matt Ford Paul Moloney 03 1x03 Heather and her partner Ally want to have a baby, using Ally's good friend Gary. But when Gary's new partner Eadie's troublesome attitude comes to light and legal contracts get waved around, Heather and Ally angrily end the arrangement. Heather devises an unusual solution which sends Ally into a tailspin.

Guessing it's 'Gary'?

I'd love to watch this show! TV here in the states has taken a downturn since several good shows have ended or been canceled.

And, of course it doesn't air in The US. Fail.

My Mac hates streaming, downloading, etc. but I'll figure out a way to watch it.

Anyone know a way to watch this show over the internet? I live in the US, so can't get it on TV.

Just look for torrents of it, I'm sure if you just look for "Satisfaction" under t.v in some torrent sites you'll find it.

what is the scene like? Is it worth downloading ten episodes just to see one scene? What happens in the scene? and how does it positively portray us?

I thought it was adorable. I just saw it.

Here's a summary, don't click if you want to watch it yourself.
edit: forgot to mention there is quite a bit of sex and nudity in the episode, and some cursing. Watch it in private, lol.
Basically from what I saw, there's a lesbian couple. One of them works for like, a prostitution chain, and from what I can tell the AB was a "client", but instead of wanting sex he wanted a "mommy". The girl actually treats him like a mommy would, not as a client, which is nice to see.

Some part near the middle they're walking around, presumably town, and she asks him if he's always been an AB. he explains how he used to have a job but they found out, gossip spread and he can't get a job now (he worked for schools). she asks him if he's ever thought about getting help, and this is their actual convo:

"You never thought maybe you should try and...
"get help?"
"well, yeah."
"Am I hurting somebody? Am I a threat?"
"No. I dunno, I guess some people might get...worried, y'know. grown man, little kids"
"I don't go for little kids. I dont go for anybody, I dont have sexual feelings. All I want is a clean nappy and the right to suck my thumb. That's not so terrible in this world, is it?"
"Just seems like a lot of hard work is all."

Overall I definitely agree it's portrayed positively, and I'm going to look for the rest of the show on torrents now because I quite like it, and I'm curious as to what happens to the girl on the next episode. x3

I caught this episode (managed to download just the one episode, which I justify by it being the only way to see it outside of Australia) and quite liked it. Sila's description is pretty good, but I agree that it can be pretty cringeworthy... especially the introduction of the character where he
hides behind the bed, squealing with delight when the "Mommy" character finds him and rehiding
it's well done, but still hard to watch!

I didn't really find that cringe worthy, I found it cute. lol Only thing that coulda been cringe worthy was

because he's practically naked, minus the diaper.

Ah well, i liked it ^^

Hmmm... it would be completely impossible to watch this with someone else in the room who wasn't AB/DL aware! As an aside, I think television is "smart" that way and very vindictive towards young men. I am certain that TV is designed to show boobs the moment a parent walks into the room, for example... :)

Well, in my opinion, it is very, uhm... disturbing that media shows AB/DLism, even in a "positive" way... Uninitiated and biased people will always be an obstacle to acceptance. The more we are hidden, the safer I feel.

I wonder if Netflix would carry it?

didn't see it on there. x3;

I feel the opposite honestly. I'm glad that the media is trying to explain it a bit in a short but positive light. The more that the world is exposed to, the less of a blow it is when someone they love comes out of the closet, so to speak. It also puts a word to those who may feel the same, but they don't have access to the internet or don't even know how to being searching for it.

@ Dogboy: Even if Netflix did carry it, you would need an international DVD player to play the DVD - or, you'd need a DVD player that would play Region 4 DVDs (AU and South America).
@ Sila: I'll be quoting part of that conversation from the episode in my sig. 8D

It was alittlebit Gringeworthy wasnt it? I mean it had a nice message and all but that doesnt change that it was gringewortjy.

Error404, screw msn, takes so long time to transfer music & movies, used torrents. It will take less than 3 minutes if you have a got torrent to find season 1! :)
