Or....put it back in the girl after the tumor was removed?

Oh, I knew what you were saying and I agreed with you. I think my "duh" was lost in translation and NOT directed at you. I was just continuing on. My bad.

I like the USA Good Doctor alot better than the 2013 kdrama Good Doctor.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Doctor_(TV_series)

However the main actor Joo Won was amazing in the kdrama series. He really carried off an autistic character in a way that was very believable.

So far the USA version is following along pretty closely to the story line of the Korean version. Sign falling on the kid, amazing Dr. saves him, late for/misses meeting with the board etc.

I don't think the USA autistic Dr. is quite as believable as an autistic but they may have made the USA character a much higher functioning autistic. However the supporting staff in the USA version is SOOOO much better behaved. The ones in the kdrama are so cruel and made it pretty much unwatchable. I couldn't finish out the series with how mean they were to the autistic Dr., always hitting him, talking down to him etc. Hard to imagine how that flew with the kdrama writers. However, even though I couldn't finish it, I did jump to episode 20 to see how it ended. I hope the USA version doesn't continue to track the kdrama storyline.

I'd like to see them try to make use of his special skills rather than trying to make him just like everyone else.

There are many kdramas that would translate well in USA television. I'm surprised that it isn't more common to copy the stories.

It will return in the spot now inhabited by L&O: The Menendez Murders, which I believe has six more episodes, as soon as it ends.

My issue with that thought is that there are plenty of dramatic things that happen in REAL medicine that you don't have to fabricate outlandish crap.

That's actually my #1 problem with most medical shows. What is seen daily is bizarre and dramatic enough.

Yes, but people who are not doctors or nurses do not see any of that...ever, unless it's your personal situation.

I don't have cable so my choices are extremely limited. I've been watching this show by default. It's ridiculous. To think a cop would stop traffic so someone could cut into a donor kidney is ridiculous. Totally.


I'll admit I laughed out loud when he went to retrieve the borrowed batteries.

I like certain aspects of the show. But I'll tell you what I don't like -- most of the actors in it.
