Anywho....Freddie played NORMAN BATES. Anthony Perkins was the original actor in PSYCHO.
I know, it was sort of a joke.

I was disappointed. I really like Freddie and thought he was great in Bates Motel. I really wanted to like this show but I guess I was wanting something a little more gritty like ER. But this show was a bit too sterile and everything seemed forced. I thought the parents reaction to their child nearly dying to be wooden. Watching ER used to bring out so many strong emotions in me from wanting to cry to having a huge smile on my face. This show felt like a chore to watch.

I love Freddie and will keep watching for him but the next episode really needs to grab me if I'm going to keep watching.

But I am glad to hear many of you did like it. Freddie is an incredible actor and I hope this show gets big ratings so it can continue.

The show definitely seems a bit cliched; but I will try a few more episodes. The young man is very good as the autistic savant "Dr. Murphy". I hope that every episode does not feature Dr. Murphy being pushed aside by impatient normal doctor/medical bureaucracy only to be proven right and saving patients' lives despite the ignorance of others...

Oh---I think that will have to be the way of things until Sean saves someone the head surgeon loves---otherwise he is just the suction man, and that sucks...

Read an awful review on "The Good Doctor" this morning after watching it last evening.
Here's my take....

Can’t express in words how much I dislike smug critics, who “think” they have a handle on reviewing shows. For all intensive purposes, please keep in mind, your reading “one” person’s opinion, nothing more, nothing less, and I couldn’t disagree more with this one….that being said….

Freddie Highmore is the reason I set this one up on my DVR. He was awesome as August Rush! He possesses some uncanny ability to capture a clandestine godliness that brings the viewer to a higher plain, so to speak, with much yet to come, as he did in this new series and lived up to my expectations!

This show, for me, becomes a learning experience, even though fantasy, I strongly believe we as a society have just touched base on understanding autism and savant syndrome, which is so totally different, in each and every individual.

However, due to society’s need for perfection, believe that gifted children have more potential than we have ever given them credit for.

Folks, let’s remember, Dr. Shaun Murphy is still unfamiliar to his viewers, and believe the writers have so much more in store. I think the writing of this gift, can almost go anywhere, and I love the idea of pairing, Einstein’s capabilities, to the Good Doctor.

I’m hooked and can't wait to see where we go from here.

actually I believe we can all put ourselves into the head doctors character at one time or another.
society teaches us, if your different, your weird, and to be ignored, and if that were not true, bullies would not be so numerous in schools and on the sports fields...not to mention, how utterly nasty people are on line to each other....I think that is what they're trying to get across to the viewer, that just b/c someone is a tad different, doesn't mean they are incapable, or beneath us as human beings.

I just think the show went out of its way to provide a very illogical first episode
The idea that the president of a hospital is hiring a surgical resident w/o any input from any other board/personnel oversight is wrong
The premise of that resident being at the airport at the scene of a very unusual accident again--totally improbable
That there is NO EMT team on call at the airport
That apparently NONE of the police in the terminal had an inkling what was happening
That someone who is so young was allowed to buy alcohol in a duty free shop???
The list goes on...
And the speech he gives--that he wants to save people like his brother and his bunny so they can have kids and wants to make lot of money to buy a television--give me a break--
If the scripts don't get better, I don't care what the premise or the acting ability might be--
I won't hang around...
