This show won my heart immediately! I happened upon it while searching for a new series to watch when I got ready in the morning and I'm so glad I took a chance on it. I ended up watching it in the morning, on lunch break, and at night - whenever I had the chance!
The show follows a teenage boy, Sam, who is on the Autism spectrum, and his family. It presents a very honest reflection of the joys and challenges that come with having a child with Autism, along with other complications that exist within families. I felt the storylines were very well done, complex, and the ending of each episode left me anxious for the next one.
"Charming" is the word I'd use to describe this show. The actor that plays Sam does a great job, as do the actors that play his family members. Autism is a sensitive topic, but they managed to navigate it respectfully and in a way that provided a form of education about this condition. I did not know much about Autism before watching this show, so appreciated gaining insight on what it is and its affects.
This series is a Netflix original and is available for watching now. Binge away!
