Re: The Good Doctor - ABC Monday

Wondering if this will be good, as it has the same creator as House which I liked.

Re: The Good Doctor - ABC Monday

Having watched Freddie Highmore totally kill it as Norman Bates on Bates Motel, I have this one already set to record on my DVD. I expect it to be really good, because I think Freddie will pull it off. I just hope viewers tune in. He's a great actor.

I watched the 1st-season of Bates Motel as well, and Freddie Highmore was excellent. Reminded me so much of the original Norman Bates, Tony Perkins.

ZoW and Lawboy, I'm expecting this one to be high on everyone's "watch" list.

Hope so, I miss House and Chance is coming out way too slowly

Re: The Good Doctor - ABC Monday

I enjoyed the first episode. I thought the drama they built of whether to hire or not hire, so just ok, but the rest was good. I expected them to talk more about credentials, med school, experience working while in med school, but they didn't.

Anyway, I expect it to get better now. They introduced the characters, their biases, and now they can just do the show and see if it is good or not going forward.

And I thought his backstory via flashbacks was captivating.

I knew from watching the rapport between he and his brother, the brother wasn't long for the series. But, that doesn't mean we won't see a lot more of the brother. It's obvious he was Shaun's biggest supporter while they were young.

I'm also curious to know more about the friendship between Shaun and Dr. Aaron Glassman. He was the the President of the hospital that offered Shaun the job.

One more thing...It's hard watching Hill Harper as a "bad guy". Although, he's definitely not the only one. He along with the would-be "teacher" are going to be difficult to watch.

Okay, two more things...Dr. Claire Brown. Curious whether TPTB are going to promote her as a love interest. How is that going to work with an Autistic person? We've seen, showing emotion isn't one of his strong suits.

Re: The Good Doctor - ABC Monday

Was kinda on the fence to watching this. Was much better than I thought.
Will say this, tho. I absolutely hated, no despised the romance/grey's anatomy stuff.
