This show hit me right in the feels! The cast is wonderful, especially Freddie Highmore as the young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, and the story is gripping. A brilliant medical drama.

We need more representation of people with all kinds of abilities/ disabilities. This series is excellent, in my opinion, with celebrating humanity. I loved the story.

Okay, I gave it only 3 1/2 stars, BUT that doesn't mean I was meh about it. In fact, this was a series chosen by a foreign airline to add to their "binge watch" collection on International travel, and that's where I found it and got hooked. The main character with his exceptional medical knowledge and problem-solving skills is balanced with his autistic challenges, mostly his blindness to "reading" people and having normal communication. He is very likable, and you want him to persist and grow to overcome his hurtles and become a well-respected, dependable doctor. On the critical side, I feel a little sad when there are too many "Oh, wait, we didn't try THIS to cure late stage pancreatic cancer/medical complications/impossible damage! Of course! It works!" moments. And while it was addictive, I can't say it was filled with complicated characters and genre-bending moments.
