I never intended to review this show. I wasn't watching it for the Autism portrayal, I could tell from the trailer it would be a fairly run-of-the-mill medical drama about a weird-but-genius-doctor vs the establishment. But the main actor is cute. Within about ten minutes I saw things that I found insulting, and they continued to mount over the next few episodes.
I wrote a piece recently about Grey's Anatomy portrayal of an Autistic character but now I wanted to share a headcanon I have about another character on the show: Cristina Yang.
So me and my other half are rewatching Grey's Anatomy, and we've reached the point in season five where Dr Dixon, an autistic surgeon, makes an appearance...
I reblogged a post recently asking what book you would like to live in. As I said then, I always pick "Voyage from Yesteryear" by James P. Hogan. The book portrays the two things I believe a society needs to move to a working cashless society.
An episode-by-episode review of Netflix's new show, Atypical.
So Netflix has a new show, which the main protagonist having Autism. I thought I'd do a review with it as I watched it. I've got high hopes for the show, as it's going to be a fine line between "laughing at the situations autism creates" and "laughing at the autistic person". The problem being, there aren't many (any?) autistic role models in pop culture.
It seems to be a popular fan theory that Newt Scamander might have Asperger's/Autism.
