    Just binged all 8 episodes. I thought it was very well done.

    Basic premise is it's a dark comedy where the focus revolves around the main character being on the Autism Spectrum, while at a fairly high functioning level, and the impact it has on the rest of the family.

    Some of the subplots were predictable, but I really enjoyed the writing overall.

    I think I enjoyed Season 2 even more than the first.

    Season 2 is more enjoyable because it follows that dumb fucking doctor show where the autistic doctor is the worst actor in history. The kid in atypical is very believable and seems to have actually prepped for the show by watching real autistic people instead robots.
