This Netflix Original Series follows Sam and 18-year-old autistic boy and his journey through high school. Sam makes the decision to venture into dating and hopes to have a "normal" experience.
Sam seeks advice from his younger sister, runs into roadblocks at every turn with his overprotective mother and struggles with his relationship to his father all while learning about the opposite sex.
Autism is something not often discussed or understood and when society doesn't understand something they tend to fear it. Atypical does an excellent job of shedding light on an important topic while also keeping it light-hearted by adding the element of teen dating into the mix. One disappointment is that producers did not cast an actor on the spectrum as the lead role.
Atypical's season 2 will be available for binging on September 7 with 10 new episodes!
