The Good Doctor Season 1 Episode 14 Review: She

  • TVfanatic
The Good Doctor tackled transgender issues in a surprisingly heartfelt way, resulting in an enjoyable episode overall.  

On The Good Doctor Season 1 Episode 14, Shaun and Jared work on a young girl that they discover is transgender. Meanwhile, Claire battles with a new intern on the team. 

I need to be honest. When we found out that Quinn was transgender, I loudly groaned.

I was nervous that this would be another in a long line of social justice cases on the show. The writers have shown that they have been incapable of handling those with care in the past. 

I was, however, pleased with how well they handled Quinn's character and her family's reactions to her transition.

Quinn: I don't want an Adam's Apple or a deep voice or hair all over my body! You can't reverse that, can you?

Dr. Lim: No, I'm afraid not.

Permalink: No, I'm afraid not.

Momentum Pictures has unveiled the first official trailer for an indie romantic comedy titled Half Magic, the feature directorial debut of actress Heather Graham, who also stars in the film in the lead role as "Honey". Half Magic is a story all about female empowerment in relationships, the work place, and in sex. Graham herself stars as woman working in Hollywood, based on her own experiences. The ensemble cast also features Angela Kinsey, Stephanie Beatriz, Jason Lewis, Thomas Lennon, and Chris D'Elia. This also features music by Moby, which is pretty cool.

Adam Scott Battles an Evil Child in First Trailer for Netflix's 'Little Evil'

"There is nothing wrong with Lucas!" Netflix has released the official trailer for an indie horror comedy titled Little Evil, the latest from Eli Craig, director of the other great horror comedy Tucker and Dale vs Evil. Remember that one? We covered it closely when it opened back in 2010. Little Evil stars Adam Scott as a man who marries the woman of his dreams, played by Evangeline Lilly. The only problem is that her child is the antichrist. Also starring Bridget Everett, Clancy Brown, Tyler Labine, Donald Faison, Chris D'Elia, and Owen Atlas as Lucas. This looks good, don't think we've seen many comedies making fun of the evil child horror trope, but I'm up for this. Glad to see something new from Eli Craig, too. Enjoy. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Eli Craig's Little Evil, direct from Netflix's YouTube: Meet Gary (Adam Scott). He just married

"You're drunk... You don't want to say something you're not going to be able to take back." Starz Digital has released a trailer for an indie comedy called Flock of Dudes, about a 30-something guy who decides to "break up" with his best buds in order to finally grow up.

2016-08-22T10:11:01-07:00Netflix Takes a Run at Edm World with Xoxo

Even though Zac Efron's We Are Your Friends failed to connect with audiences when it was released in theaters last year, Netflix appears to be convinced that there's a potential audience for film's set in the world of Electronic Dance Music. This week a new Netflix original film, Xoxo, debuts, and it takes another stab at showing audiences how much fun it is to immerse yourself in Edm.

The new film is a feature-length comedy that follows the antics of six young people as they try to get their DJ friend on stage at the nation's biggest Edm festival (from which the movie gets its name). The role of the DJ, Ethan, is played by Graham Phillips (The Good Wife), and the ensemble cast also includes Sarah Hyland (Modern Family) and Chris D'Elia

Edm Culture Meets Coming of Age in Netflix's Trailer for Xoxo

Netflix is trying to capitalize on the recent popularity of Edm culture with a film that looks better than We Are Your Friends. Of course, I have no way of knowing that, but this trailer looks promising. In Xoxo, Graham Phillips plays a teen producer whose song lands him a spot to perform in one of the largest Edm festivals in the world. We also see Sarah Hyland from Modern Family as a festival-goer and comedian Chris D'Elia featured as well.

The story looks like the classic coming of age in a new era, and the effects look pretty decent. I don't know much about this life, and this trailer made me feel old and out of the loop at 26... Let me know how it makes you feel.

Xoxo comes out August 26th on Netflix.
