Atypical is one of my favorite shows that not only spreads awareness of autism, but the characters are written very well, and each of them always has a flaw, especially the mother who is too protective of Sam Gardner. He’s a high school student that overcomes his struggles as an autistic person, and despite the many appalling reactions towards him, there are few that treat him like any normal human being.
I especially love this one character named Zahid; Sam’s best friend. He’s a little….eccentric when it comes to his sexual tendencies towards girls, but what makes me love him is that he treats Sam as normal, and willingly stands up to people for discriminating Gardner’s autism.
He’s the kind of friend who will be there at the perfect time, and I hope people aspire to be like Zahid.
