Storyline

In the Netflix family comedy series The Healing Powers of Dude, 11-year-old Noah Ferris (Jace Chapman) is struggling with a social anxiety disorder that can make the simplest everyday activities feel like he's drowning in quicksand. But after years of homeschooling, Noah bravely decides that he wants to give middle school a chance and perhaps even make some friends he's not related to. To help him navigate his new environment, his parents (Tom Everett Scott and Larisa Oleynik) get Noah a scruffy, high-energy emotional support dog called Dude (Steve Zahn). While Dude's a novice with a short attention span and a distracting obsession with treats, what he lacks in experience, he makes up for in charm, spunk and wanting the best for Noah. If this unlikely pair can find a way to overcome their differences and work together, they may just survive everything from wisecracking pre-teens to a cat-obsessed school principal and make it through the school year. Created by Sam Littenberg-Weisberg ...

Amazing show
15 January 2020 | by leonorfaustinofSee all my reviews

I loved it! I also have social anxiety, not to the extent the character has but I really related to it. The way they portray this disorder might be exaggerated, but I actually liked that, because anxiety is overwhelming and you can see that through the exaggeration. It made me laugh and it also made me tear up. I really liked how they integrated the dog, how he could understand Noah and see what Noah was imagining. I found it to be a great show! I'm waiting for season two now!!
