‘The Good Doctor’ Featured a Teenage Transgender Actress, Raising the Bar for Representation Yet Again

‘The Good Doctor’ Featured a Teenage Transgender Actress, Raising the Bar for Representation Yet Again
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “The Good Doctor” episode titled, “She.”]

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.

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in February, and the Best Episodes of Each

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in February, and the Best Episodes of Each
1. “Seven Seconds” (available February 23)

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.

‘The Good Doctor’ vs ‘The Resident': The Tale of the (Surgical) Tape (Infographic)

  • The Wrap
Is there a doctor in the house? Oh, there are several. As usual, it’s still easier to catch a medical drama on broadcast television than a cold, with the 2017-2018 season’s new offerings including ABC’s “The Good Doctor” (starring Freddie Highmore) and Fox’s “The Resident” (starring Matt Czuchry and Emily VanCamp). And though both revolve around brilliant young doctors (but really, what series focuses on old, dumb physicians?) they couldn’t be more different.

The Good Doctor Season 1 Episode 12 Review: Islands Part Two

  • TVfanatic
Part two of The Good Doctor's spring premiere is overstuffed with too much drama and corny lines to be successful.

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,

‘The Good Doctor’ Introduces Romance, but Also Makes a Case Against It, in Empowering Episode
[The following contains spoilers from “The Good Doctor” episode, “Islands, Part 1.”]

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.

Author: Zehra Phelan
