Atypical (Netflix) S: Keir Gilchrist, Jennifer Jason Leigh -- premieres 8/11/17





Quote:
Jennifer Jason Leigh and Keir Gilchrist are mother and son in Netflix's new heartfelt comedy series, Atypical, a coming-of-age story from the point-of-view of Sam (played by Gilchrist), an 18-year-old on the autism spectrum. Atypical premieres on Netflix Friday, August 11 and today, Netflix debuts this first look clip from the premiere episode -- parents of teenagers will relate. Sam decides it is time to go on a date, find a girlfriend and hopefully love, a journey that sets Sam's mother, Elsa (played by Jason Leigh), on her own life-changing path as her son seeks more independence. Sam's entire family must adjust to change, all while exploring the question: what does it really mean to be "normal"? Michael Rapaport plays Sam's father, Doug, who wants to better connect with and understand his son. Brigette Lundy-Paine plays Sam's scrappy sister, Casey, and Amy Okuda plays his therapist, Julia

Can't wait to see this. Pushing the envelope a bit, and that's good. This show looks like it has everything.

Agree this looks like it has potential - strong cast too. I like the lead, Gilchrist, from Showtime's United States of Tara from a few years back.

I hate JJL's plastic surgery so much. She looks like a completely different person now.

Finished this up today. I thought it was really, really good. I very much would tune in for another season, hopefully a little longer than 8 episodes.

Re: Atypical (Netflix) S: Keir Gilchrist, Jennifer Jason Leigh -- premieres 8/11/17

Wow, I am really enjoying this show. 15 minutes to go and sad episode 8 is the last one. Having said that I do appreciate that each episode is no longer than 36/37 minutes which with commercials would be a nearly hour long episode anyway. These streaming shows that go past 50 minutes and up to an hour and 5 minutes are a real grind to get through regardless of their quality. It is especially bad if you have 13 episodes to get through as even 10 episodes can also be a genuine grind.

This show is very easy to binge so hopefully a lot of folks give it a try and we get another season.

Very well done. Only a little into this, but really gelling. Kid is great. Good ensemble. Good writing and acting...

Finished last night. Just great. Never did that with a series before (finish in 2 consecutive nights). Of course, it's only 8 30 or so minute eps, but I loved it. Too short and could have been so much more. The only thing that was a minor distraction was JJL's plastic surgery. You can tell. Still great all around.
