People Are Praising Australian Netflix Documentary Series About People With Autism Finding Love

People have been raving about an Australian documentary series on Netflix called Love On The Spectrum.

The show explores each person's life, how their autism affects them, and what they're looking for in a potential partner. They get paired up with relationship experts to teach and inform them of what to do on dates.

What results is an extremely warm, funny (never at their expense), and engaging series that will really pull at your heart strings.

People have posted on social media about their love for the show.
