A High Concept Drama. So far, a mixed bag.
25 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Anyone who thinks Freddie Highmore can't carry this show is woefully unknowledgeable about actors. He most certainly can. Whether he will get the writing that the show needs remains to be seen. So far, it's a mostly a collection of clichés. However, that may be what is necessary to launch the concept. For Freddie, the role is a risk, not because he can't deliver, but because the character can easily become too close to Norman Bates. Comparing this show to House MD is very unfair. While both of the doctors are oddballs, that's where the comparison ends. House was an SOB who didn't suffer fools gladly. Shaun Murphy's autism colors everything; he can't always control it. When House was out of control, it was because he wanted to be. It remains to be seen whether David Shore can deliver the scripts that Freddie will need. Stay tuned.
