“Love has no boundaries.” Certainly, the reality show has proved it. People who are autistic tend to disassociate themselves from the outside world and are mostly asocial. And repeatedly, awareness programs are done, and we are often reminded that “Autism isn’t a Disease, neither it’s to be treated in the category of abnormalities.” It’s just that Autistic People’s brain development is such that it tends to affect their communication and socialization with others.
But things apart, as it is said that “Love doesn’t discriminate between an autistic and a fit human being and has no boundaries,” so Love on the Spectrum is the first reality show to embrace Autism and gives a ray of hope to the Autistic Individuals to look for love and quench their thirst of finding love by getting into this show.
Created and Directed by Cian O’Clery, the Australian Dating Reality Show “Love on the Spectrum” is one of the ways to break a lot of taboos and shatter the stereotypes that people have for people with Autism Spectrum. The Show is romantic, awkward, fun which would make you show the quirky side of love and encourage the Spectrum community to live their life to the fullest.
Letting you know about the show’s unique concept, which is itself excellently executed by the whole team. The Concept is all about Seven Individuals of the Autism Spectrum paving their path to dive into the dating ocean and experience the world of dating, love, romance in a fun and quirky way. The Seven Individuals are Michael, Kelvin, Mark, Olivia, Chloe, Maddi, and Andrew. The Show has an IMDB rating of 8.5/10 and has received 100% of Rotten Tomatoes.
Let’s talk about the thoughtfulness of our Creator-Director, Cian O’Clery. In an interview, Cian spoke about how he consulted various psychologists, doctors who specialized in Autism before starting the show and whether Cameras and Shooting would affect our seven individuals’ spectrum. The psychologists said that using a Camera might improve the confidence and enhance the communication ability of the Individuals.
Should you Stream it or Skip it?
The Show starts with a question to all our seven leads: “What do you think Love is?”, which is pretty clear that the answer would vary because love isn’t the same for all. It won’t serve justice if I say that the show is the same, just like any other dating show on Netflix. It is definitely different, and unlike any other dating show, which is mainly scripted (just an opinion), it stays true to its roots and engages the true and accurate life of the contestants.
The awkwardness during the dating scenario, the burst of laughter, the deep conversations, the quirky, strange moments. Everything would change your perception of dating and other reality shows. And in my opinion, this is what Dating and Love mean, romantic with the gist of awkwardness and fun segments. Love on the Spectrum was initially released on 19th November 2019, and it’s undoubtedly one of the best dating reality shows with a social message and awareness.
The Star of the show would remain Michael and why not he be awarded as the best. After all the charm in his words, his romantic eyes, his quotations, his deep thinking about love, everything makes him the Superstar. Let’s hope that Love on the Spectrum Season 2 will also be the blockbuster hit. It is to be released on September 21, 2021.
Our Final Call
A-One Hundred Percent STREAM IT from our side because it would be worth streaming, and it would enhance and broaden your sphere of understanding and empathetic feeling towards the Autism Spectrum and add value to the precious.
