The Good Doctor cast 

Review of "The Good Doctor" 9/28/17 by Eva Diaz
airs Mondays, 10/9c on ABC.

I wanted to watch this show because it seemed interesting... Freddie Highmore ("Bates Motel") does an amazing job playing Shaun Murphy, a doctor who has autisim but is a young genuis in the area of medicine. The show makes people aware of autism and is incredibly touching and heartwearming. It's so much so that you may want to have a box of tissues nearby.

Shaun struggles to prove to everyone, including himself, that he is a good doctor. If you like medical shows, you will enjoy this show. It also concentrates more on Shaun's struggles in his life, not just on the hospital situations. The show uses medicine as a way to get the viewer rooting for Shaun as he learns to deal with his co-workers, and they learn to deal with him, and realize that he has a gift for saving people's lives. Richard Schiff is outstanding as Shaun's mentor, Dr. Glassman, who brings him in to the hospital as an intern. Nicholas Gonzalez ("Pretty Little Liars") and Hill Harper ("Homeland") are two other doctors who aren't thrilled with the idea of working with Shaun.

I give this show 5 out of 5 stars. I think it will be a big hit with viewers this season because people will identify with Shuan's struggles, since everyone has obstacles to overcome in life.
