This series is so mindblowingly great

avatar

This show is simply brilliant. It's hard to impress me with humor around sensitive topics. I just LOVE everything about this show. Hilariously 'informative' lolol!

avatar

Not a fantastic show, but it's easy to watch. I like it.

This show was a very unexpected pleasure to watch, and it touched me deeply. But maybe I'm not the usual viewer. I have struggled in my life with some (very) mild Asberger's tendencies that while nowhere near severe enough to land me with a clinical diagnosis, have made my life kind of hard at times and left me none the less feeling quite separated from "normal" people. 'Atypical' completely stunned me in a way that I strongly identified with. It brought many smiles to my face as it's quite witty throughout. But it also shows that although different, people with ASD do have hearts, and are very much human and deserve to be understood for who they are. So thanks to the makers of this show. It has had a profound and personal impact on me. I really hope we see another season next year!

I love this show, it features so many aspects, stories and problems not only of the daily life of people living with autism but of everyone in such a rich and lovely way you gotta love it. It is hard to describe this show and all its facets so I will refrain from doing it. It is just a clear recommendation from my side to everyone who hasn't watched it yet.

Swept away! This is a great show! What really sticks out to me is the acting. Of course, the lead actor plays someone with autism, which is probably challenging, but all the supporting roles are also played amazingly well. The story line is easy to follow, and you really get to know the characters. Great show! Easy to watch Main storyline quality: 8/10 Originality: 7/10 Side storylines quality: 8/10 Progression of main story line: 10/10 Story development: 7/10 Characters: 9/10 Consistency: 9/10 Intensity (cliffhangers, edge of seat and the like): - Acting and directing: 9/10 Comedy: 6/10 Drama: 8/10 Romance: 6/10 (Please like comment if helpful, and I'll keep writing them this way)

An incredibly watchable show. Sometimes cheesy, sometimes amazingly unreal, but very, very much inviting. Easy to watch and simply entertaining. Not for the funny moments, just for its upbeatness and a lovable soundtrack. I like how they included non-actors with real disabilities in season two. Kind of makes the whole thing better. And don't even get me started on Brigette Lundy-Paine.

avatar

Just AMAZING. A must watch show that you can easily watch in one go. A show that takes a very serious subject and let's you take a look inside the mind of a autistic teenage boy who wants to get a girlfriend. Beautifully filmed, great cast and very lovable characters with a good and well balanced dose of humor.

This show is vile, but what do you expect when they consulted Autism $peaks about what autism is.

avatar

I didn't expect this show to keep being this good, but the third season was even better. It;s funny, it's sad and it's real life. I also love the fact that they added some characters with real life problems.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
