Plot:
This is a coming of age story about autistic spectrum teen Sam (Keir Gilchrist). His search for love and independence upends his family as they struggle with their own life changes. All of them wonder what it means to be normal.
Jennifer Jason Leigh (Hateful Eight) is his mother Elsa, and Michael Rapaport is his father Doug.

Review:
Rating: [Watch it] / It depends / Skip it
  • A really neat series that does a bit of compare and contrast as it breaks down societal norms. Sam doesn't get society's unspoken rules, to him it's just odd. While it dissects society, that alone isn't enough and this show delivers many fully realized characters. They all have their issues with failures and triumphs meshing in each episode. Great writing for the character manages to make even small moments something special.
Read my Season 1 full review.
