The Season Review

Love on the Spectrum Season 2 took everything good about the first season to deliver another heartwarming experience. Building on the relationships seen in the first season helped elevate the show. Watching Dani become a bit more flexible in the type of guy she wants was beautiful. Seeing James and Steve continue their search showcased their confidence and resilience.

A major highlight of the show is each person’s relationship with their family. There’s such a consistent outpouring of love and support from everyone, and watching families face these challenges together inspires near-endless hope. It’s more than that, though. The parents (particularly the mothers) also talk about things that would be hard for anyone to admit in front of a camera. Being honest about the ways they struggled or have fallen short is a reminder that nobody is perfect, and caring for a child with autism doesn’t come with some complete guide.

Meeting Connor was a major highlight. The way he wears his struggles on his sleeve is admirable for its own sake. More than that though, his actions are an incredible glimpse into how autistic minds often work. The way he dealt with his struggles are almost like a masterclass. Therefore, Love on the Spectrum is elevated from wholesome entertainment to a genuine opportunity to learn about autism and flex your empathy muscles.

The date ideas and locations this season were another improvement, and that’s not even including David and Abbey’s trip to Kenya! From gorgeous castle tours to walking dogs with Star Wars names, the locations were nearly always beautiful. They also felt true and unique to each person. Connor’s fascination with England made his tea date all the better.


The final verdict

There’s a fair share of difficult and awkward moments, but getting through them feels like tackling a challenge yourself. The show delivers so many laughs, that it makes it feel okay to laugh through some of the awkward moments. This ultimately lowers our guards, and when the emotional moments hit, they explode. Love on the Spectrum has little difficulty eliciting genuine smiles as well as real tears. The moments of joy as well as the feelings of anxiety and heartbreak are felt as if we were there with them. It puts us both in their shoes as well as the shoes of their family. Their triumphs feel like ours, and the catharsis absolutely overflows.

If you love shows about blind dates or finding love, but feel as though they can get toxic or feel fake, Love on the Spectrum will be a pleasant change of pace.
