The “Good Doctor,” which first aired on Sept. 25, 2017, is a new show about a young surgeon named Shaun Murphy who is diagnosed with autism. The character is played by Freddie Highmore. His character, Shaun, is a smart person who has difficulty communicating with people, such as the head surgeon Dr. Melendez (played by Nicholas Gonzalez) and fellow surgeons. The director, David Shore, does an astonishing job showing people how a young man with autism is not afraid to try for his dreams.
This show is excellent and the scripts that are written for each episode are so satisfying. My favorite part is when the character Shaun can see what he should do in his mind. I really enjoy watching this show and it definitely keeps me on the edge of my seat.
