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'

That said, when it does happen, it's kind of a reminder of the seriousness of what's going on for the characters as you can get a bit lulled into thinking it's all going to work out for everyone. *phew* kind of relieved it's over as I can now rest a bit easy. :D

Occasionally you come upon a Youtuber that has so much character and charisma that it's hard to turn off. After reading about how addicted was to Splatoon 2 I did some googling and found this video by 'videogamedunkey' and simply couldn't stop watching. I then found this charming video by the same guy playing Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It's so funny and foul-mouthed, what a pleasant departure from most of what's out there. Who are some of your favorite Youtubers?
