Wow! So far the best of the season. Freddie Highmore hits another one out of the park. So glad to see it has been picked up for full season.

Great show. few people with extreme autism would be capable of doing this type of job but it is possible. High level autistic people do many types of jobs. This guy though is extremely autistic. Anyways, this is not doogie h as one person stated. This person is around twenty. It's doing very well too.

Great show!! Glad to see "thinking outside the box" and allowing it to be put to good use. I hope this show sticks around.

@Ryan, With viewership numbers just from one episode it will make more than one season. Monday's premiere opened to 11.6 mill viewers and a 2.2.

The pilot was well done. Predictable underdog hero saves the day scenarios but it still felt good.
The problem is: will this be a repetitive, ongoing gimmick (his savant superpower butting heads with doubting authority figures)? That could get tiresome fast.

@rick
6 seasons, not quite. Won't last one season, but nice try.

I didn't want to like this show, but I'll admit I loved the first episode.
