Viewers say that ‘Love on the Spectrum’ has taught them a lesson:
People who’ve watched the show seem to unanimously love it and some even feel like watching the cast members has taught them a thing about dating.
On a recent Reddit thread, fans discussed what they love about the show. “Just starting and I love this! It feels so pure and raw” One Redditor shared that they love the way the characters handle rejection.
They’re probably referring to the fact that when dates don’t go well, the cast seems to be willing to try again and again until they find true love. We could all certainly learn a thing or two from that kind of never give up attitude.
Fans just love the show and can’t wait for season 2. Many people seem to have watched the first season in one sitting, considering the first season has only 5 episodes. Lucky for all of us, Season 2 is on its way. Here’s to hoping that future seasons have more episodes.
