| Great story - performance and insight about life
The first chapter got me. The others made me fell in love with the whole characters. Is about this complete family life with a kid whom has autism and how the experience of him in puberty, but the impact it creates on the whole family too.

Is really charming, lovable, sweet, intense and, most of all, deep and inner.

Keir Gilchrist (Sam), has the ability to perform exquisite his character, he is really promising. Plus the writers made an excellent development on the character. He is Autistic but not too much; not social, but neither too much; smart but neither too much. He keeps on the creepy exact balance that make his character unique.

The supportive sister portrait by Brigette Lundy-Paine, whom I haven't seen before on performance, is also great; she is this defensive strong girl whom has the soft spot: Her brother.

The whole family casting is awesome too, long time no see Michael Rappaport on such a good show. He does quite a good performance as a supporting father, he has the soft spot on the family, but also the leading male. Really good.

Is a must watch for every teen who has a friend with spectral autism, or a family or just knows someone in their school. Fully recommend it.
