Review of The Good Doctor

Mondays, 10:00 PM ET on ABC

60 minutes

The Good Doctor centers on Shaun Murphy (Highmore), a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome who relocates from a quiet country life to join a prestigious hospital’s surgical unit. Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, Shaun uses his extraordinary medical gifts to save lives and challenge the skepticism of his colleagues.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I love Freddie Highmore as Shaun. His backstory was introduced at perfect moments throughout and all were deeply affecting. There's nothing (imo) that can be faulted in this Pilot. His acting is superb and he has a great character to work with. Kudos to the writers' as all of the characters we've met so far were introduced in differing ways, with not too much exposition, plus they all appear to have interesting backstories. I am desperate to find out more about Freddie's friendship with his mentor. I wasn't looking for another medical drama to watch but this, again imo, is a must-see.
