Needless to say the calipers were rejected, Richard really wanted a wheelchair so I went back to the drawing board.
I like Garrett. I think he's really a good portrayal of a genuine human being who just happens to be disabled, and he isn't an angel - in fact he is quite relatable because even though I have full use of my legs, I tend to have a big ego despite my small name. And he's fair game for being teased or picked on. He even laughs at a tasteless remark early on. It's a shame the series didn't last.
the bad: is not too practical for something that require you to move quickly and agile as the ghost hunt, this talking from an strategist viewpoint.
i feel bad because a character like garret would be considered offensive by the politically correct people today by portray people with dissabilities in a seemingly bad light.
Garrett, by contrast, was an arrogant, sarcastic arse. The show allowed him to be just as flawed and funny as the rest of the cast, which ultimately made him more entertaining and endearing. Wouldn't change him for anything. Those who dismiss him outright because of the wheelchair don't know what they're missing.
Great show. You did good work.
