The Good Doctor

I never intended to review this show. I wasn't watching it for the Autism portrayal, I could tell from the trailer it would be a fairly run-of-the-mill medical drama about a weird-but-genius-doctor vs the establishment. But the main actor is cute. Within about ten minutes I saw things that I found insulting, and they continued to mount over the next few episodes.

Atypical Part One

So Netflix has a new show, which the main protagonist having Autism. I thought I'd do a review with it as I watched it. I've got high hopes for the show, as it's going to be a fine line between "laughing at the situations autism creates" and "laughing at the autistic person". The problem being, there aren't many (any?) autistic role models in pop culture.
