I think that some people find themselves unable to relate on the level they might relate to someone portraying say, Adrian Mole, Mr Pooter or Frank Spencer, even with Alan Partridge you may feel something approaching empathy. In the trailers I found Derek an alienating persona, but I will watch and hope to change my mind.
I don't entirely understand your response. But my point was more that shows like Big Bang Theory and Community use Aspeger's for laughs but nobody complains. Whether that's because people aren't aware of Asperger's or they simply don't care or maybe even it's just an anti-Gervais campaign I don't know, I just think if you complain about one you should complain about them all. (I watch and enjoy both Community and BBT, even though I have Asperger's)...
