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.
