My Autistic Opinion of Netflix’s ‘Atypical’ | The Mighty

There has been a lot of buzz lately about Netflix’s new show “Atypical,” which revolves around how one fictional family experiences autism. Being “atypical” myself, I was waiting patiently to watch and review “Atypical.” Before the show even aired, there was controversy in the autism community about how Keir Gilchrist, the actor who plays an autistic high school senior named Sam, is not autistic himself. Autistic actors such as Mickey Rowe, who plays an autistic character on Broadway, commented on the controversy when he reviewed the first episode. Further, no autistic people were consulted for the show. How could I not want to watch it?

Alternate Atypical: Reimagining Netflix’s Atypical if it were Written by Actually Autistic People | crippledscholar

I have now completed watching all eight episodes of the first season (it ended on a cliff hanger so they’re clearly angling for a second) of the Netflix series Atypical.It goes without saying that this post will include spoilers and quite frankly you’re welcome. Now you don’t have to watch it.The show is in a word terrible. The autistic character Sam has no perceivable personality and is largely just a collection of autism diagnostic criteria and stereotypes. His only driving factor is to get a girlfriend.Pretty much all of the characters are irredeemably awful.

The more Atypical tries to get autism “right,” the more things go wrong

Atypical desperately wants to be the show that gets autism. You can see this right in the promotional poster for the show, which tells us that “normal is overrated,” which is the type of quick-fix sentiment that seeks to heal, but is only capable of pandering.

This show wants to be to autism what You’re The Worst is to depression, or perhaps even what Transparent is to being transgender.

Unfortunately, it trips over its feet at just about every turn, and the fact that the show so clearly thinks it’s handling the topic the right way just makes it more irritating whenever it gets things wrong.
