Rain-man Doctor: Another show with a brilliant doctor who is ..."special".
29 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is another gimmicky medical drama where the protagonist is brilliant, yet ..."special".

David Shore, the creator of House, went this time for the "Autistic surgeon".

I am amazed by the fact that Shore didn't go even further and create the "Blind surgeon" or even the "Surgeon with no hands", tightening knots with his feet and cutting sutures with his teeth.

Anyway, this is a ludicrous pseudomedical melodrama, which tries to manipulate the audience with its superficial emotions and its omnipresent orchestral music.

Very conveniently for the young savant doctor, on his way for the interview for his residency, he has the chance to show to the world (and the TV audience, of course) his great skills, using McGuyver-ish techniques and means to save a young kid. That was some luck indeed, otherwise no one in the hospital would accepted him, and this would be the shortest medical drama in TV's history.

Overall the show annoys me. The whole production actually. Its so manipulative, so unnecessary melodramatic that, for me, it accomplishes the opposite result of what the producers were hoping for. Every time the "brilliant" doctor thinks, you see a bunch of medical sketches and illustrations and the explanation of medical terms, designed to think that something "magical" happens. And the music is constantly trying to enforce you how to feel, in a similar way the canned laughs are trying to point you where the joke is, in a family sitcom.

Personally I won't check the 2nd episode. The intentions of the creators are obvious and I don't like them.
