I finally got to watch it from Canada. I found it very interesting! Still, it doesn’t represent all of the situations and the point of view is focused on the reactions you have when you are 17 years old. My idea of donor conception changed a lot during my 20s, and now that I just turned 30, I face a new existencial crisis…

Also, it seemed very easy for them to find their bio-dad. People conceived earlier don’t have that much information about the donors. I was conceived in the early 80s, and there were no donor profile or anything that could help me in my search. DNA testing is almost the only option I have, and it doesn’t help that much.

Maybe the show over-simplifies the issues associated to donor conception, but at least, it draws attention to donor conception. And I think that’s a good point!
