Good show gone bad?

The type of show that follows the life of a challenged main character can be very exciting, but at the same time runs the risk of becoming too predictable in its narrative. It would just be a known fact that all decisions would be tied to the simple fact that the protagonist has a problem.

One of such shows is The Good Doctor, created by David Shore in 2017. The first season’s premiere made a great impact on viewers because of the premise of the show.

The Good Doctor follows Shaun Murphy, a young surgeon who suffers from autism and savant syndrome. The story follows him as he moves from the peaceful countryside to the city and joins the surgical department at the prestigious San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital. His decision is supported by his mentor, Dr. Aaron Glassman.

It's pretty unusual to have a mentally challenged person as a doctor. The series follows him as he uses his extraordinary medical skills and intuition to save lives and challenge the skepticism of his colleagues.

There have been 6 seasons of the show over the years, and season 7 premiered this winter. This season is going to be the last one, but it seems that the fans are quite not happy with it…

The thing is, viewers, even those who loved the show from the beginning, got tired of the one and only formula the writers were using. The main character's autism was used in almost every storyline of the show, no matter how big it was.

When season 4 started, many fans dropped the show because they thought it was getting boring, and it seems that those who gave the show a chance will drop it in the final season.

“Season 7 has not delivered so far as much as I would have liked. Being the final season of a beloved show, I really hoped for a far better and far emotional send-off. Still, I have to admit that the Charlie-Shaun dynamic is something I’ve come to appreciate. It’s basically the only part of the season where I can see a certain kind of organicity and consistency in the storyline,” Redditor No_Locksmith5392 said.

Let’s hope though the last several episodes that are still yet to be released will give fans at least something to remember the show by. The Good Doctor is on ABC and is also available to stream on Hulu.
