As a former special ed teacher and a mom with a son on the autism spectrum, it drives me absolutely batty that Theo is supposed to be autistic. I cracked up last summer when he was in the park playing realistically with a superhero action figure. I know he's just a child actor, but the writers obviously don't know what they're doing with Theo. Oh, when he knew his mom died... give me a break.

Real life lawyers get annoyed with lawyers on TV. Doctors & nurses get annoyed with medical shows. Parents of special needs children, especially autism because it's so misunderstood, get annoyed with TV portrayal. It's normal. But I FF through Theo scenes now if I'm watching it on DVR.

If you read this whole rant, :blah: God bless you.
