It's now on season four, but we've not come across the Netflix comedy-drama Atypical @atypicalnetflix before. It follows Sam, a teenager on the autism spectrum, who has decided he is ready for romance. As anyone watched it? What do you think of it?

I couldn't watch it.......too stereotypical. Worse still is "Speechless"! Excruciating!

I quite like it, although it does follow the stereotype

I thought it was great 👍maybe because it's how I see my son but understand alot of ppl wouldn't relate to it as all our beautiful asd kids are different x

I only heard about this series this week and going to give it a watch tomorrow. Hopefully it's a little more realistic than the A Word!

I've seen it, it's reasonably entertaining. If you watch it looking for, and being dissatisfied with, all the clichés, expecting unattainable standards of medico-psychological veracity and über political correctness, you will, of course, be disappointed. If you accept it as a Hollywood take on an autistic person's interaction with the world, then, yes, it is as good as it is likely to be, when it also has to be a commercial success and autistics are a minority.

Its brilliant no 2 people on the spectrum are the same so yeah may be perfectly done to some but not all

I have it’s brilliant 🌈
