Fall 2017 TV: Feel Good Dramas - The Good Doctor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the Wordl

The Good Doctor comes from the creator of House and I do like medical procedural shows, and have a lack of them in my life at the moment, so I’ll be watching it. I do wonder if I can get over just finishing watching Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates for five seasons on Bates Motel and keep expecting him to suddenly kill someone in this show when he’s supposed to be saving people. I really like Jason Ritter, but I didn’t buy that he’s supposed to be this horrible person that has a spiritual turnaround in Kevin (Probably) Saves the World. I was on the verge of rolling my eyes at the earnestness of it and that doesn’t make me want to watch.

    Other than not knowing about Norman Bates, I think I’m the same on these shows, I’ll check out the Doctor one & skip the other
