Very cliché
28 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

I watched the first episode and it was very underwhelming. On a side, I'm wondering why people are only interested in aspects of autism, if the autistic person has savant syndrome. You don't hear about shows that's main focus is on high functioning and lower functioning autism that isn't the stereotypical "rain man" savant syndrome. Honestly, I enjoyed the flashbacks more than the present day, that would have been a great plot for the show. His journey with his brother and becoming a doctor. I feel there was more depth and unique storytelling in those flashbacks than another House, M.D 2.0. Because the directors and producers created House, it's really hard to not compare the two in terms of plot patterns and diagnostic imagery. Overall, I'm disappointed that it wasn't a unique plot, but I think Freddie Highmore is a great actor, so he'll definitely carry the show.
