The thing is that you can see Park's concern acutely. It just doesn't match up with the actual words he says; it must be so frustrating for him. Part of me yearns to have DEK just let him ramble off in Korean with subtitles so he can give voice to his frustration. FWIW, my son is diagnosed Asperger's and my husband is undiagnosed. So yeah, this stuff - I don't believe it's "curable." And anyway, I think doing so, if it were even possible, would change the essence of the persons themselves, a lot of which is positive. So yeah, I'm all about making sure people who communicate differently are accommodated. And if that means extra brainwork to find new and creative ways via the whole staff around Park, I'd love to see more of that. We'll see how creative DEK will be re teamwork. He was pretty good with Jerry on BL; that was a very poignant, albeit sometimes unintentionally hilarious character. But yeah, I do hope they don't make him into a caricature because he's non-White.
Re Ty's story arc, I think it will take a few more eps to figure out the rhythm of the show and how they tackle each character's conflicts (inner and outer). Park's conflict (that was only touched on in the pilot) is put to the fore in the 2nd epi. Maybe they're meting out Ty's over the next few. They've introduced a lot of heavy guilt; since there's the daddy issues, too. I think the reason why I make the BSG comparisons is because they're coming out the gate with Whump!Ty almost immediately and it just reminds me of the apocalyptic nature of BSG (at least on a small, character-centric scale; no other character is this personally flayed open for us during the pilot).
Oi. This show is making me nutso already lol.
