Storyline

Atypical is a coming of age story that follows Sam, an 18-year-old on the autistic spectrum as he searches for love and independence. While Sam is on his funny yet emotional journey of self-discovery, the rest of his family must grapple with change in their own lives as they all struggle with the central theme: what does it really mean to be normal?

Trivia

Michael Rapaport was in an episode of The Big Bang Theory (2007) where he has a very literal and pedantic conversation with Lenard and Sheldon. There are lots of theories of Sheldon Cooper being on the spectrum although this has never been confirmed. In fact Mayim Bialik (Amy and real life neurobiologist) stated that it wasn't important to add the label of autism because it wouldn't change who he is as a person. In this series Doug struggles to come to terms but still treats Sam as if he would any other person neuro-typical or neuro-diverse. See more »

Goofs

For the first seven episodes in season 2, Doug's EMT patch is upside-down. It turned right side up in episode 8. See more »

User Reviews

 
It is what it is
16 September 2018 | by scottollquistSee all my reviews

For a 30 min show on Netflix, Atypical is up there with the better shows of the last couple of years. It is a smart, warm dram-edy that is well written and the characters are likeable without being over the top. It's second season was a touch underwhelming and this viewer is sceptical about how the writers adopt the S3 script. I'm still looking forward to finding out though...

PS, I agree with some reviews regarding the last 5 mins of S2. Just not necessary.
