Good Doctor ep 9: Dramatic Recap-it
This whole blogging thing has helped me learn some things about myself, specifically when it comes to writing. I had a family blog for a few years before I started this one, so I thought I had a pretty good handle on what blogging entailed. Yeah, I was still misinformed. There's a big difference between following a schedule (hey, I do so follow a schedule -- kinda sorta sometimes) and just writing when the mood strikes. Turns out that I have these bouts where words flow and it all comes together and I'm happy with the result. It's awesome. Except that I now know that those days are like once a month. The other 30 days of the month I have to wrestle and try to drag them out as they scream and claw and hiss like a cat on its way to a bathtub. I have also discovered that I work better at night. For whatever reason, maybe because the cat is just sleepier, the words come easier at night. And last night I found that closing my eyes as I type works even better than having them open (thank you 9th grade typing class where I learned the one skill that I have actually been able to put to work in my real life) (Just kidding - I learned lots in school. Hey kids, school's cool, stay in school). Weird, huh? So, I say that to let you know that right now it is morning and my eyes are open wide and that that one glorious day of easy writing is not today. Why do I say this? Well, mostly because I just had to fill in this empty space here and make small talk before launching into my recap. It's my process. And I am a sharer.
Dongsaeng's Drama Doctoring of ep 9
1. Suck it Up Buttercup, I'm More Pathetic than You
2. Honey vs Vinegar
3. Abandonment Issues
4. You Know What Your Problem Really Is?
5. Side Show at the Circus
6. All Better
Speaking of heart to heart - I wanted to mention this scene. Shi On and Yoon Seo are sitting together. Shi On is speaking only in his head, but Yoon Seo appears to hear him loud and clear. It was cute. And sweet. And deserves a mention. I loved Shi On's reaction of surprise - adorable!
7. Farewell Performance
8. Time to Make It or Break It
All kidding and light teasing aside, I thought that this episode went a decent way in keeping my attention. In other words, it was less boring than the last one and that makes me very happy and relieved. I'm actually looking forward to watching 10 and seeing what all happens in Shi On's life. I don't care much for the rest of it, but I do care about him and his experiences and growth. And love life.
I also wanted to give a nod to some of our supporting cast members. I really am enjoying the interplay of the nursing staff, the other doctors in pediatric surgery, and the "resident" kids. All of those side stories are a treat. Seriously still not interested in the business/political side of it or those characters, but at least time spent in the hospital is enjoyable with all those characters.
