Page 3 of Louis Theroux returns to BBC Two with three new films about LA
not as depressing as I thought it would be, but not really very interesting either, don't feel like I learned anything, or gained any insight into the life of an alcoholic that you couldn't get from a soap or daytime tv :(
Don't get me wrong, I'm glad/hopeful that 2 of the ppl looked to be getting things sorted and hope their lives stay on track, and it's a shame the outcome doesn't look great for the others, but I don't know, lacked any real substance :(
Seen this drink problem in real life with quite a number of tradesmen in the building industry as like many a job stress takes it toll, from the head architect running a multi-million pound key project with a bottle of Jim Beam in the desk drawer resulting in killing a kid through drunk driving and getting a five year stretch, to a personnel friend who due to home life problems ended up knocking back three pints in the same time as one of mine, resulting in serious liver problems and having to leave work.
Moral is: It can creep up and get the better of you, so beware
Louis Theroux's return to Britain
Continues with "A Different Brain
Sunday 15th 21:00
Louis spends time with people relearning everyday tasks or suffering complex personailty changes after brain injuries.
As expected, that was interesting and very sad.
Felt really sorry for the couple whose relationship is now very different, after her accident.
Saddened by the situation of the people who need to be kept under supervision, not because of what they may do, but more how other people could take advantage of them :(

they're from a few years ago, interesting stuff though.
