Omar Epps News

TVLine's Performance of the Week (Honorable Mention):

HONORABLE MENTION | Shooter‘s Omar Epps pulled off quite a feat this week by making us feel for Isaac Johnson, whose turncoat behavior in Season 1 upended fellow Marine Bob Lee Swagger’s life. Likening his lapse in judgement to the tiniest distraction that can make a sniper miss his target by 100 yards, Isaac admitted, “I made a series of mistakes, man,” the murder of Donny Fenn’s mom included. “I think about it every day. I’m never gonna be on the right side of it,” he went on, shaking his head in shame (before managing to rationalize how that kill was compassionate compared to what Jack Payne had planned). “I’m not looking for redemption, Bob Lee,” Isaac concluded. “I am what I am.” And because of Epps’ engaging performance, what he is is, if not forgiven, at least understood.

Early Review from SpoilerTV: You can also vote in their poll (at the link):

THE GOOD DOCTOR (Average SpoilerTV Pilot Rating: 8.08; Chosen by Abi, Angela, Jaz, Laura, Marko, Saloni). Premiere: September 25, 2017

THE GOOD DOCTOR, created by Daniel Dae Kim and David Shore, follows Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome at the pediatric department of San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital. There he uses his talents to save lives and challenge the skepticism of his colleagues, while guided by his mentor, Aaron Glassman (Emmy winner Richard Schiff).

Based off the acclaimed, short-lived South Korean medical drama of the same name, created by David Shore (House), starring Freddie Highmore, fresh off his revered portrayal of Norman Bates in Bates Motel, and veteran actor Richard Schiff, The Good Doctor has all the makings of a hit.

What Does the Team Have to Say About the Pilot?

"My FAVORITE pilot so far. It's got to be this season's breakout show. Freddie Highmore is an amazing lead who I already feel a connection with. He made me laugh and cry with him and not at him which is a step up in terms of Autism representation. This is going to be one of my favorite shows" - Jaz

"Simply beautiful. This may be my new favourite show this year!" - Tyler

"A flawed pilot with great potential. Freddie Highmore was freaking brilliant." - Marko Pekic

"Highmore is an absolute star and does so much within the confines of his character. The 7 rating is in regards to an array of clunky dialogue that plagues many of the other characters and some really ridiculously contrived situations. There is strong potential here as long as the show can tighten up its dialogue and character development. I do recommend giving this one at least a trial place on your Fall schedule." - Aimee
