Great showing with a very strong pilot. Seems like it will be an interesting show if you like main characters that are different. Reminded me of House... Dr. Murphy (Freddie Highmore) is so incredibly intelligent and sees problems in such unique ways, but then you add the fact that he has high functioning autism and some of the other doctors and surgeons look down on him which he notices and calls out in a very innocent way could add for interesting interpersonal drama down the line, especially between doctors who have taken his side and those who have opposed his hiring.Time will tell but with so many good medical dramas coming to an end it might be prime time for a show like this to catch on, and if all the episodes are as good or better then the first, I think they'll really have something here!

I really liked this pilot. I like the visual they use and the actor that plays Dr. Murphy does a great job. It's a show with heart and also empowers those who are seen as "different". Strong start.

I really enjoyed the debut episode of this show. Freddie Highmore does an incredible job portraying an "autistic" doctor, and I feel like he is really going to continue to grow into the part over the course of the year. On top of that, I really enjoyed the pace the show worked at, and the way in represented medical knowledge to the viewers. I believe the show started off strong, and will continue to grow with time.
