    Season 7 Commentary: 7×01 Baby, Baby, Baby

    This felt like a pretty solid episode with good pacing. Nothing that really stood out to me as good or bad – a lovely season opener with a personal patient story and the starting point for some of the threads that will unravel this season.

    No Green Light for The Good Lawyer

    This is old news by now, but there may still be people out there who have not yet heard the unfortunate news that ABC decided not to give the law-themed spin-off The Good Lawyer the go-ahead. This was announced back in November 2023 by several news outlets after ABC made it public.


  • Everyone Operates Differently

    A Critical Review of The Good Doctor Season 6 Having closed the book on an extra long season 6, let’s shine a light on what happened across the whole of the season and see what was notable and what might be worth highlighting in retrospect. Just to set expectations, I will focus mostly on what’s…

    Season 6 Wishlist Analysis

    Back in August last year before season 6 started, I made a wishlist what I’d like to see being covered in the next 22 episodes. Let’s take a look at what came about and what didn’t.

    Throughout all of season 6, I’ve been doing this silly thing of compiling the best Shaun muffin face expressions for my episode recaps, and it’s time we had them all in once place.

    Season 6 Recap: 6×22 Love’s Labor

    Oh wow, so much goodness in this episode, and a bit of frustration as well. I was positively surprised how little actual drama there was, not that I’m complaining. In some ways this almost felt like a series finale, but I’m incredibly happy we’re getting another season.

    Season 6 Recap: 6×21 A Beautiful Day

    This day we watched unfold was of course less than beautiful, which was to be expected, and it certainly didn’t end on any kind of beautiful note or notion. The episode left me absolutely deflated, and I think I would have struggled with this recap even if I’d had the time to write it up…

    Season 6 Recap: 6×20 Blessed

    Well, we were finally “blessed” with a resolution to the Glassman brain conundrum, not that I particularly love the outcome. But I like it more than what had been speculated before, so I’ll take this as a small win. Some good stuff in this episode overall. Oh, also: We’re getting a season 7!! Yay!!!! 🎉🥳🍾

    Season 6 Recap: 6×19 Half Measures

    This episode was a lot of love/hate. I hated it more than I thought I would because of where we all think this might be headed. On the other hand, I also loved some aspects of it, plus nice directing work by Freddie Highmore!

    Season 6 Recap: 6×18 A Blip

    Here we were, after a two-week cliffhangery wait to eagerly learn about whether Glassman’s fate was sealed, but… what we actually learned wasn’t that. Not a bad episode at all, but having to wait yet another week for that potential punch in the gut was a little frustrating.

    Ah geez. Way to drop another bomb on us. Or, well, mightily hint at it in those last few seconds. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, there’s much more to uncover before we get to that part. Let’s get into it.
