      Watched 10 episodes. It's about a young, autistic, surgical intern fitting in with the team.

      I liked House and this is a good alternative, nowhere near as dark as House.

      While I am a sucker for any medical drama and I have been enjoying the character development on this program, as an autistic adult I have some issues with the show. I feel like they are focusing too much on his "classic autism" quirks and not enough on him as a fully rounded human. I was impressed with the episode that featured an autistic patient - the actor who played that part is autistic.

      thanks for the insight Heather. I did wonder how the character with autism would relate to someone who is autistic.

      I'm not normally a TV person but watched some episodes at my mom's place. I liked the show but can't speak to how authentic the actor is at portraying someone with autism.

      Hey Shay! Love the show. Freddie Highmore was great in Bates Motel, so we decided to give this a look. Watched the season finale on Hulu last night, and it was pretty incredible and moving. I like that the show is also socially-conscious, but not preachy, with things like autism, cybergaming, transgender, even Tide pods making appearances. Not quite "A Beautiful Mind", but definitely worth watching.
