The Good Doctor (ABC)

Created by David Shore (House). It's about a young resident surgeon with autism and Savant syndrome, played by Freddie Highmore (Bates Motel).

Next week there is a break, so if you're behind ABC has the first six episodes available to stream On Demand if you want to play catch-up:

Great show so far, and it seems like every episode is besting the previous one. If the supporting cast isn't doing it for you after the pilot, I suggest you keep giving it a chance. I love the way that an autistic savant is portrayed in this show, which is what keeps me coming back more than anything else.

Re: The Good Doctor (ABC)

I'm a fan too but I thought the episode with his brother lookalike was a little hokey and an unrealistic look at how someone in that position would deal with that diagnosis. I haven't seen the latest episode yet.

I'll give you that one, I liked the episode's themes but it was not necessarily my favorite at the time. I think what I liked about it though was (besides the fact the kid actor is amazing)...

Spoiler


As far as this new episode, I loved it but one thing that I loved most about it was (not a real spoiler at all that has anything to do with the episode itself but oh well)...

Spoiler


One thing I'm not a fan of in this show is that they do the: "Previously on..." thing for it in the beginning. That sounds small and stupid that I don't like it, but one of the main things I don't like about it is they don't show those to catch people up necessarily, but rather to bring up what topics may occur in the episode itself. Kind of takes away the surprise from anything that will happen regarding the plot at that point (or if there is shock value there, I'm now expecting it, like the brother thing).

Holy... here I was sitting on my thumbs just hoping a second season would happen. I had no idea it was the hit show of the fall!
