Is It Any Good?

Offered with sensitivity and humor, the U.S. version of the Australian series reveals the ups and downs that neurodiverse individuals experience when trying to find a partner. It highlights how each cast member, all of whom have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), has their own set of different behaviors, aptitudes, and challenges that can make it difficult to navigate the dating scene. And, of course, it follows each of them as they meet new people, go out on dates, have awkward moments, flirt, and even kiss. But Love on the Spectrum U.S. is also about clearing up the many misconceptions surrounding what it means to be neurodiverse, including (but not limited to) the preconceived notions that many neurotypical people have about the desire and ability of people with ASD to date, get married, have children, and live full lives. Overall, it's sweet and honest and follows each person's story with kindness and respect.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
