On Monday’s episode of “The Good Doctor,” Sophie Giannamore guest stars as a young transgender girl who comes to San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital with a medical emergency. What’s significant about this casting is that Giannamore is actually a transgender actress in real life.
In the episode, Giannamore plays Quinn, a young girl who comes in with abdominal pains, but when she’s examined and found to have a penis, Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) is confused about why she identifies as female. He continues to use male pronouns “he” and “him” to refer to Quinn, and insists that biology is the only way to determine someone’s gender.

Shaun’s natural curiosity leads him to ask some awkward “inflammatory” questions that his
Why Should I Watch It? Regina King is in it. Now, I realize no one needs any more reason than that, but just for fun, let’s play this out: “Seven Seconds” focuses on the amount of time it takes to end a life and upend a community. Tackling race relations in modern America, the 10-episode first season starts with a white cop critically injuring a black teenager, an attempt to cover up what happened, and the ensuing, massive trial. King plays the teen’s mother, Latrice Butler, while the chief protagonist is Kj Harper (Clare-Hope Ashitey), an assistant prosecutor who takes the case and struggles with its rippling repercussions. Timely and well-cast, “Seven Seconds” is bound to generate plenty of discussion.
Best Episode: Reviews are embargoed until February 16. Stay tuned. There’s much more to come on this one.

On The Good Doctor Season 1 Episode 12, Shaun gives his two weeks notice to Dr. Glassman in order to follow Lea to Pennsylvania. The doctors must also work together to save the twins after they suffer complications from their separation surgery.
The formerly conjoined twins were facing numerous complications after being separated, and when it seemed like Katie was going to be taken off of life support, I was instantly emotional.
I adored this storyline, and I wanted both of them to survive.
Unfortunately, there was so much back and forth about what would happen to them that the story lost its power. It seemed that a new problem arose every time the show came back from commercial, which made it exhausting to follow.
I put trust in them from an early age,

Monday’s episode of “The Good Doctor” was one wild ride, literally, as Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) goes on a road trip with his neighbor Lea (Paige Spara). The impromptu journey out of town parallels his own experience of trying new things that range from driving a car and getting drunk to singing karaoke and enjoying his very first kiss.
But just as he’s riding the high from the successful, stress-relieving trip, Lea drops a bombshell: she’s going to quit her job and move so she can follow her passion of restoring old cars. The news does not sit well with Shaun, and he runs away again, but this time, he’s alone.

The character of Lea has been an intriguing one from the start.
The awards season kicked off last night at the lavish Beverly Hilton Hotel for the 75th Golden Globes ceremony. Politically charged and dominated by last year’s sexual harassment allegations, the women of the big and small screen came out in solidarity with each other by wearing black and Time’s Up pins. Nevertheless, it was Cecil B.

As for the awards themselves, on the film front, Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri won four awards. Guillermo del Toro won best director for The Shape of Water, the film had the most nominations of the night. Gary Oldman won best actor in a drama for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour,
