‘The Good Doctor’ Features Actor With Autism for an Insightful Episode That Highlights the Need for More Inclusion

‘The Good Doctor’ Features Actor With Autism for an Insightful Episode That Highlights the Need for More Inclusion
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “The Good Doctor” episode, “22 Steps.”]

The Good Doctor” is a way for viewers who have never met a person with autism to get to know more about the differences in neurology and behaviors that may accompany the disorder. For the show’s central character Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore), a surgical resident with autism and savant syndrome, he hasn’t met anyone with autism either, at least not until Monday’s episode.

When a young man named Liam (Coby Bird) is wheeled in on a gurney, Shaun immediately understands why the boy is struggling with the nurses. Far from needing to be restrained, it turns out he has autism and doesn’t like to be touched. Shaun proves to be instrumental in understanding Liam’s needs and relaying them to the hospital staff. IndieWire spoke with series creator David Shore to get his take on the insightful episode.

Don Mancini Has A Killer Idea For A Child’s Play/Elm Street Crossover

In 2003, Freddy vs. Jason arrived in cinemas, a film that I’d credit for kicking off the versus-style motif of Hollywood crossovers. In the time since, we’ve received other mashups such as Alien vs. Predator, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and, perhaps the biggest movie to be produced within our lifetime, Mega Python vs. Gatoroid.

Like any of us, those seated in prestigious positions can also dream. As it so happens, Don Mancini, director of the upcoming Cult of Chucky and the man responsible for bringing the Child’s Play film franchise back to its roots, has a cool idea for a crossover. And when you really think about it, it kind of makes sense.

Granted, pitting Freddy against Jason was a no-brainer because they’re both titans in the horror genre, but Mancini would like to see something he calls “Child’s Play on Elm Street.” When

Briefs: “Z Nation” Will Be Shambling Our Way, Matt Bomer Inspires, and What is “The Tenth?”

Birthday shoutouts go to Kevin Alejandro (above), who is 38, Russell Crowe is 50, John Oates is 65, and Jackie Chan is 60.

Our thoughts are with the family and generations of fans of screen legend Mickey Rooney, who died today at the age of 93. He’ll always be the one true Fallout Boy to me.

In more sad news, model and ally Peaches Geldof has died at the age of 25.

Supreme Court won’t hear anti-gay photographer case. Nom heads just exploded.

I Was Broken, and Matt Bomer Put Me Back Together. Is there anything he can’t do?

As I’m sure you’ll agree, The Asylum is one of the great production companies in Hollywood. They’re responsible for most of the iconic Syfy Channel movies, including Sharknado, Almighty Thor, Nazis At The Center Of The Earth, American Warships, Atlantic Rim, Titanic II, and of course, Mega Python vs. Gatoroid (to name just a few.

Film Feature: 13 Films That Define 2013

Including films that achieve the correct button-mashing combo to earn fancy kudos and are positively lauded, there are only a select few from the whole bunch that have the significance of “definitive.”

Such happens to a point in which these movies now help outline our exact understanding of an entire year of film itself. These are the films that are created from specific thematic trends from all of our culture, or in some historical cases, became trends themselves.

From the paranormal parody of “A Haunted House” to the controversial “Wolf of Wall Street,” here are 13 films that best define the movie year that was 2013.

'Sharknado' ratings: Lot of wind, little bite

'Sharknado' ratings: Lot of wind, little bite
Everybody talked about it.

But not everybody watched it.

Syfy’s original movie Sharknado delivered 1.4 million viewers Thursday night. That’s lower than many previous Syfy breakout titles, like 2010′s Sharktopus (2.5 million viewers), 2011′s Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid (2.4 million) and last year’s Piranhaconda (1.8 million). It’s even a bit below the far less buzzy Chupacabra vs. the Alamo (1.5 million), which ran earlier this year. Syfy points out that the movie skewed younger than usual (a good thing) and its 18-49 performance was up 29 percent from the channel’s movie average this year.

Still, for a movie that exploded Twitter,

Syfy Already Talking ‘Sharknado’ Sequel

Syfy has been bringing TV auds campy telepic fare for about a decade now, but Thursday’s “Sharknado” far surpassed the NBCUniversal cabler’s expectations when it came to online buzz and audience reaction.

And yes, a “Sharknado” sequel is already being discussed at the Syfy headquarters, though official plans have yet to coalesce. For now, the cabler is planning a rerun of the pic next Thursday at 7 p.m. to serve as a lead-in to Frankie Muniz-starrer “Blast Vegas.”

“We’ve had other movies where the titles would catch some buzz, like ‘Sharktopus’ or ‘Jersey Shore Shark Attack,’” explained Thomas Vitale, Syfy’s exec veep of programming and original movies. “But the level that ‘Sharknado’ reached, that was a surprise. It’s one of those happy accidents.”

Sharknado,” starring Tara Reid and Ian Ziering, is about exactly what the hodgepodge name implies: a shark-filled tornado that wrecks havoc on Los Angeles.

Watch: Tara Reid Shoots Sharks Out of the Sky in the Trailer for the SyFy True Story 'Sharknado'

Watch: Tara Reid Shoots Sharks Out of the Sky in the Trailer for the SyFy True Story 'Sharknado'
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, the water has become a tornado, and that tornado is filled with sharks. Following up fan favorites like "Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus," "Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus," and "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid," low budget film studio The Asylum is bringing you "Sharknado," which is exactly what you think and more than you could hope. Starring Tara Reid and Ian Ziering, the film tells the true story of a deadly tornado powerful enough to suck sharks out of the ocean and hurl them at the innocent civilians of Los Angeles, causing mass hysteria and renegade groups firing shotguns into the air. Wikipedia and my imagination tell me this all took place shortly after the Lakers last won an NBA title.  Directed by Anthony C. Ferrante in his first made-for-tv movie, "Sharknado" debuts tonight at 9pm Edt on the SyFy channel.

HBO Goes “Behind the Candelabra” and “Smash” Ends at the Tonys

News

A&E has cancelled the long-running reality show Intervention. That puts the end to a pretty remarkable run that helped 156 people turn sober and stay sober.

Mrs. Frederic has found a new job, C.C.H. Pounder is taking a role for a multi-episode arc on Sons of Anarchy, according to EW.

In the Flesh doesn’t make its stateside debut for a couple more weeks, but you won’t have to worry about how it ends. BBC Three just ordered a second season (or commissioned a second series to follow the UK TV terms) of the zombie drama.

In the Flesh

At the very least, appalling reality TV gives the chance to give critics a chance to write epic takedowns. This time, NPR’s Linda Holmes goes after Fox’s Does Someone Have to Go?, which turns out to be so much worse than I imagined.

DVD Release: Croczilla

DVD Release Date: Feb. 12, 2013

Price: DVD $24.98

Studio: Screen Media

Croczilla eyes some appealing appetizers.

The 2012 Chinese horror-action-comedy movie Croczilla is one China’s first-ever creature feature films.

A giant foot crocodile named Mao—who measures 36 feet in length and weighs some two tons–goes on the rampage in Beijing after being moved from a peaceful crocodile farm and onto the menu of a local gangster. As if that’s not bad enough, Mao encounters the beautiful model Wen Yan (Barbie Hsu, Future X Cops) and gobbles down her bag, which contains $1 million, not to mention her mobile phone! The beast continues to terrorize innocent people, even as the army hunts it down and the lovely lady tries to recover her lost cash!

Poor Wen Yan! No wonder the movie was called Million Dollar Crocodile when it was released in theaters in its native China in June, 2012.
