Trivia

Micah Fowler explained on Twitter that his character, JJ Dimeo, has a more severe form of cerebral palsy than he does in real life. Micah uses a wheelchair most of the time but can walk short distances with a walker. He can talk clearly enough for most people to understand him as well. His character, JJ, however, uses a power wheelchair for independence and is nonverbal. See more »

The representation was amazing!
21 September 2016 | by rako-27616See all my reviews

I honestly can't remember the last time I saw a show where the main character was a wheelchair user played by an actor who actually uses a wheelchair. This alone makes the show a must-see. Admittedly there are the typical ABC-sitcom tropes: the corniness, the less-than-ideal acting, etc. But it's all worth it to see the way they tackle disabilities with an actor who experiences everything first-hand. As a viewer in a wheelchair, it was genuinely incredible. I cannot wait to see where the show goes in the future. I hope that this is one that sticks. If you don't care about it, chances are that you have never been disabled or affected by someone with a disability. (Which is disappointing as the messages in the show are aimed at you.) And if you are disabled, I would definitely recommend checking it out.
