Yeah. there was Mickey, like 2002 or 2003 no exactly sure, but I remember he was there throughout the whole Angie era because of that incident in class Mickey was a great character. And so is Brendan. I've been seriously looking forward to his entrance, the show in my mind is on low speed and it needed something to give it that boost. I think Kain is doing a great job portraying a character like that, but IMO he's overplaying the character just by that little bit. Like, when Mickey was on the show, from memory he wasn't that "in your face" as Brendan seems to be, but however, all disabled people act differently.
He's a great addition to the show at the moment. Looking forward to more appearances from him!
