Not so sure I agree. At my school I often found autistic/Asberger kids to blurt out whatever comes to their minds. They are often lacking a gate that filters out what is or is not appropriate to say or do.

I understand that. The show is just poorly done. I watch anyway because it's a 'feel good'

So true, you gotta love em.....

I was having a Holiday dinner at my home. My cousin's autistic grand-son came along....after we ate, before dessert he says, "I want to get outa here, lets go!" LOL the only way they can be described is like Sheldon, on the Big Bang Theory. They do not have the capability to filter. At my age, I don't any longer either. LOL

LOL...

My nephew, who has autism doesnít speak much, but does have meltdowns/tantrums, and screams a lot. (We love him anyway ) His brothers, who are triplets, donít have autism thankfully. Can you imagine a household with four autistic kids!

Iím still enjoying the show btw, and like the scenes with Shaun and Melendez the most.

The woman was having a heart attack and he was saying increased heart rate is a sign of lying. As are chest pains. That goes way beyond what would be acceptable in a HOSPITAL from a DOCTOR.

Realizing it is just TV, it appears that he should not be allowed to make important decisions without supervision.

yes, Shaun really makes him stop and think doesn't he.
Love the blank stares on Melendez's face....when Shaun calls him up on things

this past week was very heartwarming, when Shaun told his old doctor friend that he wanted to be friends.

yes, it does jencam, but if I may say this one more time....I don't believe this show is for realists...and that is where some get caught up...I'm certain they do if that is their specific career, however, it's a TV show, which is not realistic....

I watch it for so many other reasons and I'm not interested in realism...if it takes me away for an hour, that's what I care about, but, it surely isn't for everyone...

When we were kids and we were watching a show on TV, my brother used to always call out the fantasy in shows, very loud, interrupting and spoiling the show for us, of course at the time, we were younger than him and we didn't care...we just wanted to watch it...and enjoy it. LOL

So, I'm not being harsh, my example was that my brother wanted a realistic adventure, we didn't care....

it kind of tickles me the way he speaks out in front of the patients...but I know it certainly wouldn't happen in real life....

yanno what jencam, I'm going to add something to this

This show also reminds me of the aloof doctor who thinks he's God, and the way doctors should be....up front, honest, and to come down off they're high horse....

Not all doctors are like that, but a lot of them have surly got to come back to earth.

Working as an RN I would say there are 1 out of 100 docs I have worked with over 20 years that has had a bad attitude and it goes across the board with patients and nurses. One thing I learned though is some of the best doctors have the least personality. (IMO) Reminds me of a few of us nurses talking about how much patients loved this one doc because he was so chill with them....he had one of the highest complication rates EVER but his patients loved him even if they had one of the complications.. Dr Dull who never chatted much with the nurses and was all business with his patients and ran us nurses around to insure HIS patients got good care IMO was the one who did the job and was thorough. Life wasn't a popularity contest and sometimes he was offensive in the fact he never sugar coated anything with patients OR nurses somewhat like Shawn but not that extreme. I will take the serious blunt dr over the life of the party one if I need a doc.
