2. Freddie Highmore Freaking Kills It

The most obvious reason to check out The Good Doctor is its star, Freddie Highmore, who plays autistic savant Shaun Murphy. By all accounts (even negative critical reviews of the show), Highmore is pitch perfect. Not only is his portrayal of an autistic savant being hailed by those who personally know the affliction, his performance is being hailed by critics who are calling it the best part of the show, hands down. You can’t get a much better foundation for a drama than a great lead, and on that front, The Good Doctor is well covered.
