The Good Doctor Season 1 Review! πŸ₯

Hey everyone, welcome back to another post on What are you up to during the Lockdown?? It’s been more than a month since I’ve posted, but I’m back now!

Recently, I started watching a new show on Netflix called, The Good Doctor. I love it a lot and I’ve already finished the first 3 seasons! In today’s post I’ll be reviewing the show’s first season and talking about my favourite characters and episodes.

The Good Doctor revolves around an Autistic doctor: Dr Shaun Murphy.

The main characters are:
Dr. Shaun Murphy – Surgical Resident
Dr. Claire Browne – Surgical Resident
Dr. Jared Kalu – Surgical Resident
Dr Alex Park – Surgical Resident
Dr Morgan Reznick – Surgical Resident
Dr Neil Melendez – Attending Surgeon
Dr Audrey Lim – Trauma Surgeon
Dr Marcus Andrews – Chief of Surgery
Dr Aaron Glassman – President of San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital
Lea – Shaun’s neighbour and friend

Dr Shaun Murphy, played by Freddie Highmore is an autistic doctor from Casper who also has Savant Syndrome. Savant Syndrome is a rare condition where a person who has a severe mental illness showcases a brilliant skill or ability far better than an average individual. Dr Shaun Murphy had great memory ability which helped him to remember symptoms with almost complete accuracy, helped him visualize the case, and helped him give the perfect diagnosis almost every time. He also has unique observational skills that help him notice even the smallest of details to ensure no mistake in a diagnosis or surgical procedure.

Season 1 was an amazing season and the first episode got me immediately hooked to it! It’s an inspiring story and very motivating. How an autistic boy who ran away from his home at a young age is now a surgical resident is very motivating.

The show portrays many interesting medical cases and how the residents and their attending surgeons handle them. Every episode has an absolutely intriguing storyline and you’ll love them if you have even the slightest interest in Anatomy!

I loved all episodes of Season 1 and I can’t pick any one to be the best! My favourite characters in Season 1 were Shaun, Dr Glassman, Claire and Lea.

The first scene is absolutely amazing and so intriguing! The first episode was one of my all time favourites.

Favorite quotes from Season 1

The day that the rain smelled like ice cream, my bunny went to heaven in front of my eyes. The day that the copper pipes in the old building smelled like burnt food, my brother went to heaven in front of my eyes. I couldn’t save them. It’s sad. Neither one had the chance to become an adult. They should have become adults. They should have had children of their own and loved those children. And I want to make that possible for other people. And I also want to make a lot of money so that I can have a television.

You’re right, I’m weird. Part of my weirdness is thag I perseverate. That means I keep thinking about things. So, I will keep knocking on your door until I know Martine is okay.

  1. Good Doctor is like my life right now! I’m binge watching it with my sister since the past 1 month and we’re on Season 4! And, tbh, we both are just madly in love with MelendezπŸ’”πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚
    Yeah, no one get over with Lea and Shaun….the whole 3 seasons I was like, just get together people!!!! because I just never liked Carly! She has to understand that Lea and Shaun are comfortable together than he is with her because the dating thing is new to him, but she just keeps getting jealous after seeing them together! But all the 3 seasons were awesome and there sure was some heartbreaking when Kalu left. Well, my fav character apart from Glassman, Lea and Shaun, is Claire for sure!! In the beginning, I hated Morgan so muchh but even her character development is good enough. I just love Good Doctor a lottttt! So glad to find someone else too! Amazing post, Aditi!πŸ’›

    1. Woahh! Yes! But I feel so bad that he died in Season 3 πŸ™ Yeah, I didn’t like Carly much either. Yes, Jared leaving was really sad. It would have been amazing to see him in Season 2 and 3. I completely agree with you about Morgan. One of the things I love most about The Good Doctor is the way the first episode of the first season is started. It’s soo interesting and captivating! Thank you Siya! I’m glad you enjoyed reading this post πŸ˜ƒ

  2. I have just finished watching the first season. Cannot wait to watch the other two. Shawn is such a sweetheart, I fell in love with his character. And Dr. Glassman’s cancer diagnosis was just so sudden. I was really sad for Shawn, because Glassman is the only true friend that he has. I think Lea is not as kind as she seems to be. What are your views on this?

    1. Oh wow, that’s amazing! I’m sure you’ll like the other 2 seasons too. Yes, I completely agree with that. Dr Glassman is basically his only friend and family. I had mixed views about Lea, but it becomes clearer towards the third season. Thanks a lot for sharing your views!
