Happy Halloween! Okay, not anymore, but this episode aired on Halloween, and it shall also be noted that none other than Daniel Dae Kim directed this one. Overall I daresay a pretty solid episode, and definitely lots of character development and interesting aspects to explore. I definitely liked this one.Continue reading
I have mixed feelings about this one, although overall I came away with a positive impression after the first viewing. Lots of stuff was covered, new things were learned, and it seems the direction of some important aspects just got a serious course adjustment. There’s certainly many things to ponder, so let’s get to it.Continue reading

Let me start by saying that it’s been a very long time that The Good Doctor has been offering us a storyline as nuanced, compelling and captivating as this one we’re currently seeing unfold in season 6.
I really think that the writers’ room is taking it to a whole new level this year, and I’m very grateful for that, because they’re making me feel an unprecedented level of anticipation about upcoming episodes. Which makes it even more bewildering that the general mood of the fandom is so out of whack.Continue reading
This episode made me as conflicted as I think the viewers were supposed to feel about the whole situation with Shaun and Lim. Because when I watched it, I was still so mad about the mess of last week’s episode. I think I really would have enjoyed it more if last week hadn’t left me so aggravated. But overall, I’ll give this one a tentative thumbs up.Continue reading
Oh man. This feels like Crazytown all over again. I really don’t have many positive things to say about this episode. It’s one of those where I wanna write the recap purely through sarcastic internet memes. This one definitely didn’t push any of my buttons for what I enjoy and expect of intelligent and captivating television.Continue reading
Hoo boy, what a way to start the season! Excitement, intensity, edge-of-your-seat suspense and emotions galore! I really loved everything about this episode. Top notch work all around.Continue reading
As summer is in full swing, we’re getting ever closer to season 6, and of course we’re all in anticipation of what it will bring. What kind of episode, character and season arcs can we expect, what is it that we’d like to to see for our favourite doctors and their loved ones? Take a look at the wishlist below.Continue reading
With the The Good Doctor’s 5th season now having come to a close, it’s time to look back at the season as a whole and see what was memorable, and maybe also what was not so memorable. I (
TJ) will be doing this together with my fellow partners in crime Daniela (
Da) and NiceNiceDevice (
N3), so let’s get to it and dive in!
Quick word of warning to set expectations, we will focus mostly on what’s happening around Shaun as our main protagonist, with little mention of other pairings or side characters.Continue reading
Back in September last year when we were still in anticipation of what season 5 would bring, you might remember I posted a season 5 wishlist. With Kelli just recently examining her and other fans’ (including me) wishlist, that reminded me it would be worth doing a brief analysis of which elements from the wishlist I put up got a tick mark and which didn’t. Let’s take a look!Continue reading
As apprehensive as I was about the finale, I am super glad that all my fears were swept aside with these 42 minutes of pure joy and love and heart-warming goodness. What a relief, and—the cliffhanger not withstanding—such a sweet and rewarding ending to a rather turbulent season.Continue reading
Hmpf. I’m kinda bummed, because while somewhat enjoyable and entertaining to watch, this episode was just so… uninspired. I was hoping it would make up for what The Shaun Show lacked, and instead it was just more lacking, plus tropes galore, a not very cleverly recycled patient story, and predictable mediocrity. Did I mention tropes?Continue reading
