Portrayals of people with mental illness unfortunate
26 December 2018 | by donmorgan-50413See all my reviews

I love Brokenwood and this episode is much like the others. But it should not have been made.for at least two reasons. First -- it makes fun of the mentally ill. Stigma is a problem for these persons. Those who don't understand too often look down on or make jokes about them, Dark Angel just adds to the problem. The second issue is that the portrayal plays to stereotypes of the mentally ill. I've met many people with mental illness and none are anything like the characters in the episode.
