I just finished season 1 of Atypical on Netflix #TV. It's a complete 180 from Ozark which I watched just prior to that, and which I've just giddily learned has been renewed for a second season!! The 8 part series centers around a highly-functioning autistic teen and his family through the various complexities of being a family brings, with the twists that the main character's personality brings.
To learn about the wide spectrum of autism and its inherent quirks was educational and interesting. Yet, sometimes the show felt almost like a sitcom. There was a regular back-and-forth between an exploration of the seriousness of the issue and more pedestrian entertaining which seemed like a cheap tactic to keep a hold on viewers.
Nontheless, it's a fairly quick and easy watch. The ending left me pleasantly wanting more, despite some of the shortcomings, but I'll be surprised if it gets renewed.
If you've seen it, I'd love to hear your thoughts?
