Trivia

Michael Raparort 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 »

Great story - performance and insight about life
12 August 2017 | by Euric SantiSee all my reviews

The first chapter got me. The others made me fell in love with the whole characters. Is about this complete family life with a kid whom has autism and how the experience of him in puberty, but the impact it creates on the whole family too.

Is really charming, lovable, sweet, intense and, most of all, deep and inner.

Keir Gilchrist (Sam), has the ability to perform exquisite his character, he is really promising. Plus the writers made an excellent development on the character. He is Autistic but not too much; not social, but neither too much; smart but neither too much. He keeps on the creepy exact balance that make his character unique.

The supportive sister portrait by Brigette Lundy-Paine, whom I haven't seen before on performance, is also great; she is this defensive strong girl whom has the soft spot: Her brother.

The whole family casting is awesome too, long time no see Michael Rappaport on such a good show. He does quite a good performance as a supporting father, he has the soft spot on the family, but also the leading male. Really good.

Is a must watch for every teen who has a friend with spectral autism, or a family or just knows someone in their school. Fully recommend it.

Congratulations
