    Has anyone seen this series? What did you think of it?

    Sometimes I like it, and sometimes, the humor just seems like it's "too much." I think the Alex-Nicholas pairing is very awkward appearance-wise and it's meant to be that way. Alex (Adam Faison) is particularly very attractive. Also, Matilda's crush, Luke, played by Mason Gooding (son of Cuba Gooding Jr.) is particularly attractive and seems "out of Matilda's league" sadly.

    I try to seek out any TV show or film that's autism related. I wish there was a 24/7 autism related channel because that's probably what I'd want to watch mostly.

    I tried to watch this show and couldn't take the voices. The Matilda character sounds like she's on helium and same for the Nicholas character. I have issues with sound in general and related to that certain types of voices can be really hard for me to take.

    @Magna have you seen the UK Comedy the IT Crowd? Maurice Moss is definitely on the spectrum. Also Ahbed in Community.

    I think Moss is one of the greatest characters on TV and I think the IT Crowd is one of the best shows. I only wish it had a longer duration.

    I'd recommend shows with Alan Partridge on too

    Knowing Me, Knowing You
    I'm Alan Partridge
    Mid Morning Matters
    This Time With Alan Partridge
    Alpha Papa (movie)

    One of my favorite shows ever!! I relate a lot to the characters and I really like the style. It was canceled way too early in my opinion if you are still in the first season in the first couple episodes (or even before ep 7) you might not like it if you are not somebody who tends to like shows like this one but truly their is so much good character development and good comedy yes it's awkward but so is being autistic in the world we live in. The show might also be more relatable to those more familiar with being in special ed or being autistic in ways that get in the way a bit more at times. Matilda was extremely relatable to me personally.
