Outlander is back and all feels right in the world. Well, it would, if I didn’t want to punch that thieving bastard Stephen Bonnet in the face, but let’s not jump ahead here.
When you have an ensemble show like The Good Doctor, the stories weave in and out, leaving you feeling more than you might expect. In “Tough Titmouse,” viewers simultaneously experience Shaun’s journey to figuring things out with Lea, Dr. Glassman’s struggle post-op and seeing his dead daughter, and Claire and Morgan helping a young climber figure out what surgery she wants to heal.
Laying it out it sounds so simple, but the emotion it evokes feels as real as the kind we go through every day out in the world. I’d love to say humans are creatures of logic as we have powerful brains, but those pesky feelings sneak in and affect everything — whether we like it or not.
Let’s see how the emotions snuck in, shall we?
Dynamics — the one part of this show I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of. “36 Hours” showcased this to the full, between Claire’s point about assertiveness in the workplace, Dr. Glassman fully immersed in the patient side of healthcare, and Shaun’s foray into a shift at the ER that led to some competing personal advice.
Let’s dive in, shall we?
If The Good Doctor‘s latest episode, “Middle Ground,” made one thing clear, it’s that life is never as straightforward as we want it to be. Unfortunately, Shaun and Dr. Lim learned this the hard way. The Good Doctor exercises a lot of confidence in letting its characters drive what they deal with each week. Let’s dive into that story, shall we?
Shaun Murphy, oh I have missed you. The Good Doctor was back in form with “Hello”, penned by lead Freddie Highmore, and it was like sitting down to have coffee with an old friend. The kind where you start talking, and it’s like no time has passed. I wish I could have said that during hiatus, but really I’m just thankful Fall TV is back just in time to make me cry a bit.
Bellarke fans, I count myself among you in how much I love Bellamy Blake and Clarke Griffin’s story. However, the mood as of late around the fandom has left a bad taste in my mouth, where I feel compelled to get a few words out there.
To start, I’ll freely admit that I love and easily get attached to TV shows and their characters. That said, when I don’t like a specific direction that storytelling has taken, I either suffer through it, hoping for the best, or I quietly show myself out. We all have a choice of what to spend our time watching, as it’s not like there’s a lack of options in peak TV era.
Sassenachs, it’s just under two months until another Droughtlander finally ends, and Starz has decided to whet our appetites with a dynamite new preview! Season 4, in case you have lived under a rock, is adapted from Outlander‘s fourth novel “Drums of Autumn”.
