The show has a very clear vision and goal, with a tight script when it comes to building a deeper understanding of autism, and nicely developed characters; however, some situations are a bit heavy handed and come off as forced, soap opera style. It gets better over the course of the season. Keir Gilchrist was quite effective, but Brigette Lundy-Paine was the standout, she is just inherently likable.
Great show. One of the best comedy drama's I've seen. One those rare shows which one minute you feel sadness and the next second laughter - a nice blend of comedy drama and a lot lighter than shows like Baskets, etc - straddles the line between cheese but never really crosses it. Excited for series 2.
