The Good DoctorThread 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.

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?
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.
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"
