Definitely the most enjoyable medical drama’s I’ve ever watched!
Shaun Murphy, a young autistic surgeon who has savant syndrome, relocates from a quiet country life to join the surgical unit at the prestigious San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital — a move strongly supported by his mentor, Dr. Aaron Glassman. Having survived a troubled childhood, Shaun is alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, but he finds his niche using his extraordinary medical skill and intuition to save lives and challenge the skepticism of his colleagues.
The first episode of ‘The Good Doctor’ S1 was premiered on September 25, 2017.
36 Episodes includes in the ‘Good Doctor’ archive list uptill now.
One of the best of the current crop of medical dramas. Freddie Highmore (“Bates Motel”) trades in his knife for a scalpel as Dr. Shaun Murphy, an autistic, baby-faced young surgical resident at a major California hospital. What Murphy lacks in the social graces, he more than makes up for with his diagnostic skills. Sure, his supporting cast (fine actors, all) is almost too attractive for words, the medical jargon can get awfully confusing at times, the storylines are as disease-of-the-week-dependent as you would expect them to be, leading to episodes that are insanely manipulative…but Highmore plays his part with an endearing awkwardness, the writers are savvy enough not to let EVERY patient survive, and it’s always fun to watch Murphy, in one of his delightful little “Eureka!” moments, out-guess one of his associates and save another life. With the superb Richard Schiff (“The West Wing”) as Murphy’s friend and mentor, Dr. Glassman.
This season may have been even better than the first. Pay this show a visit–it might be just what “The Good Doctor” ordered.
