Have you seen it? It's about 3 autistic flatmates sharing a home with a support aide. All of the autistic characters are played by autistic actors

I just binged the whole season and really loved it. It felt like a real representation in television for the first time, at least for me

Hated it.

You cannot have a show worth watching were autism is the main glue. It hasn't and won't ever work.

The only show that has portrayed autism in a way that wasn't patronizing is sadly Rick and Morty and that's probably because Rick is many things and autism is just one of them.

I just watched that trailer and the portrayals seem far too exaggerated to me, maybe that's just me. Also seems quite written from an NT point of view. Hm.

Actually, the writer and actors are all on the spectrum.
