Love on the Spectrum
IMDb rating: 8.5/10
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 100%
This reality show follows seven young people, all on the autism spectrum, embarking on their first journey in the world of dating. With help from their families and experts, they gradually grow in confidence as they search for love.
The five-episode series has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with critics praising its wholesomeness and feel-good factor.
“Dating shows can be curiously lacking in love, sometimes; the pursuit of love does not always equal the winning of it. But Love on the Spectrum is packed with love, not just of the romantic kind, but from family, friends and community,” wrote The Guardian.
CNN.com says, “More than anything, Love on the Spectrum exhibits empathy toward the featured players without condescending toward them, and quickly bridges any cultural barriers in a broadly universal manner.”
They’re not wrong – Love on the Spectrum is that rare creature, a dating reality show that’s actually about love, pure and simple.
