      John Doyle Globe and Mail Atypical is funny, wise, sometimes a bit wobbly in tone but always's a delightful experience. Dec 11, 2018 Full Review Matthew Rozsa Aspects of the autistic experience... are often overlooked in our popular culture, and "Atypical" deserves enormous credit for incorporating them, even if it is still heavily flawed. Rated: 3/4 Sep 23, 2018 Full Review Lorraine Ali Los Angeles Times Atypical is irreverent when it needs to be, insightful when it counts and, above all, empathetic to the pressures of growing up - on or off the spectrum. Sep 13, 2018 Full Review Kayla Cobb Decider Atypical feels like it's finally becoming the empowering, funny, and deeply human show it always wanted to be. Sep 12, 2018 Full Review Matt Roush TV Insider Chances are you'll fall for him, his family and friends. Don't miss it. Sep 12, 2018 Full Review Megan Vick TV Guide While Sam's disorder provides a unique perspective to the world of Atypical, the show is about so much more than that. Season 2 pushes this even further...and finds new ways to enlighten, inspire and surprise by endearing us deeper to its characters. Sep 4, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Bingewatcher Fanatic I just found the show now on Netflix busy binging each season. Loving the second season. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Don't get me wrong: I LOVE this series! But this season (S2) is, in my opinion, the worst season. It's still good, but the way the events of S1 affected the next events, just not the way I imagined it. But as I said, still an awesome series! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Season two of "Atypical" buckles down on the heart, and humor that made the show so invigorating in the first place. It also has great performances to go around for days. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Shows just don't get much better than this. The characters feel like they're really part of your lives. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Well, the music, the ambiance, the characters, the writing, the storyline, and the acting are all so fantastic to watch - now I want more of this. Well done. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member If you can't find a way to laugh and even find yourself invested in this story then you should probably stop watching TV-Series altogether. Great performances throughout and no time wasted for myself. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a review
