Is it an excessive amount of to ask {that a} primetime community present simply entertain us with out some random social justice message popping up on the display? That is 2020 and apparently the reply is sure.

The second episode of season 4 of ABC’s The Good Physician aired on November 9. Titled “Frontline Half 2”, one of many present’s storylines included two feminine docs grieving the dying of a health care provider with whom each lady had an intimate relationship.

One is the Chief of Surgical procedure, Dr. Audrey Lim (Christina Chang), and the opposite is Dr. Claire Brown (Antonia Thomas). The 2 girls have a friendship and luxury one another on the lack of Dr. Neil Melendez.

The ladies find yourself on a bench they typically come to for some quiet time simply outdoors of the hospital constructing. This night there was a random message on the t-shirt beneath Dr. Lim’s coat. The t-shirt reads “Black Lives Matter”.


Dr. Brown: Are you okay if… M-maybe it is time we stopped coming right here.

Dr. Lim:  You are prepared to maneuver on? 

Dr. Brown: No. However he’ll nonetheless be with us, proper? Wherever we’re. He modified me. That is not gonna go away.

It’s a disgrace that the episode ended with such a message endorsing a radical Marxist group. The episode was actually fairly good. I used to be moved to tears a few instances because the sufferers and docs struggled all through the present. There have been no political conversations or any motive to bust out a political slogan, however there it was.
