Dr. Marcus Andrews: A surgeon needs to communicate. Not just information, but sympathy, empathy. Can Dr. Murphy do that? He can't even reliably show up for a job interview. Are you gonna sit here and tell us that there were no equally qualified young surgeons, surgeons without this one's... issues?
Dr. Aaron Glassman: No. Which is why - exactly why - we should hire Shaun. We should hire him because he is qualified and because he is different. How long ago was it that we wouldn't hire black doctors in this hospital? How m... how long ...

Made me proud to be autistic
15 November 2017 | by maxglenSee all my reviews

Growing up as a high functioning autistic boy I got a lot of people saying not so nice things about me just because I had this label attached to me. Literally people I had never met before would judge me because I wasn't like other kids. I saw that in this and it really struck home. First off I want to commend Freddie Highmore on his stellar performance of a high functioning yet severely autistic man. As someone who as I've already stated was diagnosed with autism at a young age and has spent over 10 years of my life with other people on both ends of the spectrum I think I'm more than qualified to give him a little praise. I also loved how they had those visual prompts kind of like Sherlock's mind palace. Every time I realised he was trying to solve a problem I'd audibly show my excitement. Other than a few irritating characters which are supposed to be irritating so good job! I really enjoyed this on a personal level and as a lover of television and film. I'm gonna give this a 9 for now as I don't know what's to come next but I'm excited I'll tell you that much.
