THE GOOD DOCTOR
17 November 2021
Why hasn't anybody told me about The Good Doctor??
Well, it's not like I haven't KNOWN about the show. I have watched most of the big medical shows ever since we got a TV in 1953. This was described as:
When it started, I watched the first episode and decided I didn't want to follow the autism and so stopped watching. I believe two other medical shows started that season too, so I wasn't missing out.
I see people from time to time list The Good Doctor as one of their favorite programs, but I haven't gone back to check it out. I like to watch shows from the beginning and it just seemed like too much work to start at the beginning of a four-season show.
But in an insomnia night the other night, I decided to go to Hulu and try it out and discovered I loved it. So now I'm trying to binge watch to catch up with current episodes. Season 5 started in September.
It's certainly better, at the moment, than my most recent favorite medical show, New Amsterdam
The current season of New Amsterdam is destroying everything I loved about the hospital and its director and I end up angry at the end of each episode.
I can't begin to name the number of doctor shows I've watched over the years. I remember George Clooney, before anybody knew who he was, as minor character on ER. I remember the unrealistic practice of Marcus Welby, who seemed to only do home visits ... does any doctor do home visits any more? Heck, now you do FaceTime visits!
I watched Grey's Anatomy for years until it became more like a soap opera than a medical show. I wonder if there really is that much sex going on in supply closets in hospitals these days. And I watched House for several years until his personality finally got to me and I stopped watching, though experts feel that House is one of the most accurate shows for doctors while Grey's Anatomy is one of the least accurate.
I will be watching The Good Doctor
in the coming weeks to see if I can catch up.
