LOL! Good one!

Hapa1-"there wouldn't be a story to tell"

Exactly what I was thinking but didn't type in my first post Like Ghost Whisperer and Medium were so real, lol.


I agree and that is why I watched it and enjoyed the first one. I may have had to suspend my disbelief a few times but that is why it is fiction. I would still rather watch that then some reality with all the phony crap, lol. I abhor silly drama.

me to, have watched it numerous times.....and cried right along side you.

Granted this show isn't real...and is definitely "NOT" for realists....especially those in the profession....keeping in mind, this is simply put, A TV show, which I believe, (and may be wrong) is sending a message of hope for those families who have been stricken with Autism. (who cares if it's realistic, if in fact it brings a tad of hope)

And yeah, he wanted to buy a TV...b/c that's the way some kids with Autism, think... even little kids feel like that...oh the complete innocence of a child's mind. And yeah, he wants to help people....what, you expected some great prepared speech of verbal intellect? Won't happen.

My cousin's grand child is autistic, and there is truly something very unique and special inside this child...he knows he's different, he's been bullied enough by kids who learned that different, means open game to bully. Kids learn to bully....it is in fact a learned behavior....and from what I've seen online, is it any wonder?

Again, we humans, seem to believe that b/c they are different, they are beneath us, and they are not, and a handful of them, do possess special talents that cannot be explained...well scientifically they can...but I like the show b/c the Autistic child turned into a man that has something to add to society, like they all do...in some way.

I worked with handicapped children years ago, some very badly and they were all very special children...the light in their faces and eyes, were incredible....and no one will tell me different.

That to me, is what this show is about...in fantasy form...so if your looking for authentic procedures, I suggest you move on.

I'm sticking with it....even though it isn't yet the best...but for what it may become.

So right. It will be a good message for people to have a peak at Autism and autistic people.

I looked like a predictable mix of Monk and Doogie Howser, ... however, the cast, acting and (surprise!) the writing all seemed to come together and I liked it quite a bit more than expected.
Good back-story, and I liked his responses to being questioned, by the board, and by the surgeon. Excellent writing that.

I'm not saying, it doesn't need improvement, from any stretch of the imagination....but I truly believe it's not about the reality of procedures, much more, about the reality of how people look at others, or should I say, look down on others, which came across loud and clear and is so totally true in our culture...

It's all about pretty and trends....

Hog Wash! I never was trendy, and never will be, what impresses me about people is how they treat me.

and yes, when he answered those questions, it was an awwwwww moment.

It's the first show I've looked forward to in years. Most shows, I just watch to kill time. I don't really care if I miss them. I hope the ABC suits keep their hands off of The Good Doctor.

It's me, not the show.

My heart is too sensitive to see his little face anymore and his sweet little brother...
the injustice...had enough in
in the first 15 min.

I know, I know last night he probably showed everyone he was right and lives were saved.
He is slowly wowing the staff..but in the mean time it breaks my heart...
But hey, I've never seen Titanic or The Horse Whisperer, either.

Good show, tho.
