Critic Reviews for The Good Doctor Season 4

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (0)

The time jumps effectively demonstrated how doctors went from mistaking the virus for the flu to being able to diagnose patients but not treat them... and later to continually discover new symptoms and new problems related to the disease.

Audience Reviews for The Good Doctor: Season 4

  • 1d ago
    Another once great TV show that has now gone and messed itself up because of Hollywood's desire to force feed their political views on its audience. Goodbye to "The Good Doctor".
  • 4d ago
    This has gone from being a must watch show to being really painful to watch, episode 1 ad 2 which addressed the Covid were interesting and well done but since then the season has just gotten worse and worse. The characters are all becoming unlikeable and at a time when we need humour the show seems to have lost its completely. Understandably it just be difficult producing a show during covid times but if this is the end result id rather they didn't bother.

    If I could give it zero stars I would. This was my family's favorite show until they let politics and trickle in and ruin everything.

    This review is for the season 4 episode titled "Lim". Many viewers might find this episode of The Good Doctor offensive. In this episode a young woman is at the hospital going to get an abortion, why she decided to have an abortion is never explained. Why the writers decided to tackle such a controversial issue I have no clue. The chief of surgery Lim assigns the job to a junior doctor who refuses to preform it at first because of her religion but Lim pressures her to do it and insults her and suggests that she has low IQ for not wanting to preform the abortion. Lim then threatens to fire her if she doesn't do it. This episode is pure garbage. The writers clearly have some kind of animus towards Christians. I found this episode offensive and I'm likely not the only one. Even non religious people that don't agree with abortion might also find this episode offensive. I think that the writers really alienated the viewers with this episode.

    You know what? I've been waiting for months to see the fourth season of this show. Eagerly, I have been awaiting the day where I can enjoy the show once more. I wanted to see how Shawn Murphy was going overcome his own challenges- I wanted to see how Claire Brown would cope with losing her best friend and lover, Melendez, I wanted to see how Morgan would cope with not being able to preform another surgery from damaging her hand. This however, was not what I received- instead, I got disappointment- instead I got something that was both boring and dull- honestly, I regret watching the fourth season. To start off the season started with looking into the covid pandemic- unlike most other critics, I would say that those two episodes were of responsible quality. From episodes 3-4; I felt sick to my stomach from the feminist rhetoric that was littered throughout the next few episodes- whenever one of the male surgical residents would make a point they would be put down- this has never been something that I had noticed in the good doctor. Every time a male resident would talk they would be called a "mansplanner" or "sexist"- although I tried to ignore this blatant, terribly used "humour" (if you could even call it that)- it became too much, and so I decided to keep my good memories of the series- and so I stopped watching. All I can say is that I'm disappointed.

    Poorly written episodes, Covid's were the worst, they couldn't portray everything, when it arrived in episode 3, everyone was happy as if nothing had happened! The first few seasons were great, but Melendez's death was the downfall of that show!!
  • Jan 06, 2021
    It is the most disappointing series I have ever watched. Total disregard for their fans and actors, besides this 4th season being totally boring ... after all they killed one of the best characters in the series (Neil Melendez)
  • Jan 06, 2021
    I loved this show, but the end of season 3 disappointed me a lot! Season 4 is a mess, the first episodes about Covid were terrible and the following episodes too!
  • Jan 06, 2021
    This season has been awful. From the horrible coverage of COVID to killing Melendez prematurely and the bringing him back for a terrible regurgitated Grey's Anatomy ghost storyline as a "fan service" was horrendous. They could've saved Melendez with a miracle and given us a great season, but they decided to focus another season on Shaun's sex life and throw terrible storylines (i.e. park and morgan, the new interns, glassman/debbie) hoping they'll stick. They didn't. What a disappointment.
  • Jan 06, 2021
    The show has lost everything that makes it good. Sad because it used to be pleasant to watch. Season 4 so far is a catastrophe: lack of soul, the characters seem to be the ghosts of what they were. The new interns are useless. All seems fake. And the storylines are inconsistent. And i don't even talk about the death of Neil Melendez (totally useless and forced to create a drama no one asked for in the first place) which is badly treated (a shame when you heard David Shore said last March it will affect all the characters). His name is not heard a single time and he's only implied on very rare occasions just to "please the viewers". As a minimum guaranteed service. To conclude, you can look elsewhere if you want to watch a good medical drama (try the Resident, New Amsterdam, Transplant or Nurses, you won't be disappointed !) I had no regret quitting the show ! I will only regret Claire Browne 's character which was very endearing. And the delicious Antonia Thomas who plays emotions at their highest !
