Public Service Announcement 37 of 2018: The Good Doctor

It’s been a long, dry summer. And autumn. But proper TV – and proper Unpopcult – is back, with the return tonight of The Good Doctor for its second season. A huge ratings hit in America, insofar as such a thing exists any more, it’s a well-crafted medical drama with one or two things which elevate it above the average: a terrific central performance from Freddie Highmore (who writes tonight’s season opener); interesting plotting which veers off in unexpected directions; and an engaging and well-deployed supporting cast. In short, it’s much better than you think it is. Weekly reviews, at least until I get too busy (tonight, 9pm, Sky Witness).

And there’s more proper TV coming soon.
