The Good Doctor

   Thread Started October 25 at 1:07PM

I normally have impeccable taste, but I must say I DO find terrible things that I think are wonderful only to find out later they have been voted the WORST of all time. The movie "You Light Up My Life" would be a good example of this odd predilection on my part. To add perspective, I LIKED "Waterworld".

With that in mind, I love the new show, The Good Doctor, but I have the feeling it may be terrible.

Is it?

Hi there;
I, too, enjoy 'The Good Doctor.' The premise of an autistic making it through medical school and the residency of a surgeon is quite daunting.

However, I started watching because the show comes from the same team that gave us, "House." Now, I'm staying because they've given me another character who intrigues me.

I go one step further than you, I liked the song You Light Up My Life. Still do. But I know I have good taste because I also liked Waterworld. And, yes, I liked The Purple People Eater, The Witch Doctor, and Running Bare or was it Bear.
Don't watch much television, but there is a special on Edgar Allen Poe on American Masters, PBS, October 30th for anyone interested.
Guess I'll go for a swim.

What's that, Robert? You'll be going for a swim you say? You mean you aren't the least bit interested in viewing the PBS Special on Poe?
Odd...
Well, you see, I say "odd" because you told me about it, so I just assumed...
I'll be watching. You can bet on it!

Oh, I'll be watching. Edgar is one of my favorite poets.
I think you missed my Raven prequel.
The swim is in reference to Waterworld. Critics panned the movie, but I thought Costner did an excellent job.
Poe would have loved it. It was Edgar who wrote The City in the Sea.

   

A book by our own Alec Gould.

One man's take on life told thru humorous short stories from his childhood on into his mid-50's; from feeling like an outcast in school to being an adult. His intent: hope. Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.

The 23rd Annual Book Awards said:
"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
