Review: World Of Jenks
I was amazed by the episode where he spent a week with a 20 yr old Autistic boy named Chad. I have a 4 yr old autistic son and i know how difficult it can be now, but after watching Andrew interact with Chad, I now know what i may have to handle as my son ages. Andrew Jenks doesn't judge people, he sincerely wants to know what its like to be these people! This show gives you a new outlook on things and shows you how others are! This episode shows that no matter what the age, there is always programs to help. Chad goes to a special school where he learns things he needs to know on a daily basis, like cleaning, calling 911 and counting money! This episode was super eye opening to me.
Another episode that was pretty good was when Andrew spent a week with someone that is "Houseless". Houseless is what Danielle, a 22 yr old girl who has been living on the streets for 9 years, calls being homeless! When i hear homeless i think these people aren't eating and they have no place to sleep, but Danielle shows Andrew its not like that! Its just that she doesn't have a home to go to every night. She shows him how to panhandle, how to hitchhike and how she lives day to day.
