New Amsterdam

Show Summary

New York City homicide detective John Amsterdam is cursed with immortality because he stopped the murder of a Native American girl in 1642 by stepping in front of a sword. Due to this act of kindness, the girl rescued Amsterdam from the stab wound by making him immortal, but warns that it is a curse that will only be lifted when John meets his true love.

Now, Amsterdam is a homicide detective in the Big Apple where he shares his secret with Omar, a blues club owner with a few secrets of his own. John is partnered up with Eva Marquez and gets into a chase with a suspect. When he suffers what appears to be a heart attack and is revived by ER doctor Sara Dillane, he realizes that mortality may be closer then he thought.

New Amsterdam is produced by Laha Films, Regency Television, Sarabande Productions and Scarlet Fire Productions.

  • Very enjoyable series

    9.0
    When I found the series it had already been cancelled for four years. I like series where flashbacks are handled in a good and supporting way. John had seen so many things and was living with all his experience. But still he managed to be positive most of the time. Good!!

    And: a Danish actor playing a Dutch character is for me, being Dutch, a bit troubling. But he did well.moreless

  • GRATUITOUS, VIOLENT, GRAPHIC IMAGES

    1.5
    My husband had seen the preview and planned to watch the first episode. We knew the general subject matter, but was not prepared for what we saw 3 seconds into the opening sequence. The violent images and stress inducing music caused both my daughter(age 24)and me to leave the room leaving my husband to watch for another few minutes and it was then too much for him! Seriously - there's enough gore and shock on the daily news.... we don't need our tv entainment to be as bad as real life!

    This much violence and disturbing content in an opening sequence left no doubt that the show would only be worse but, we didn't stay to find out and will not tune in again.moreless
  • liked it but not too sad to see it go

    5.0
    When this show first came on i really liked it, it was something different and had a certain feel to it that really pulled me in. As time passed and the episodes continued to air the show remained constant, the story kept developing and more and more things were revealed about the characters, now looking back remembering the show i see that throughout it all it was always missing something..not sure what but it wasnt quite memorable. i can't imagine the show still on now i have no idea how the show could've developed further, they created the love interest from the beginning and the whole point was for him to find his one true love...unless they ended up making it his partner idk how the show could have kept you tuned in to your tv every night to see what happens next...at least after the 1st season (if that)moreless
  • Not given a chance!

    7.5
    This show started really slowly, and I did originally fear it would never hit the mark. And then all of a sudden it just clicked with the characters and the storyline meeting in the right places.

    Too bad by that time FOX had already made up its mind to kill it, after doing their best to bury it in a lousy time slot with no promotion.

    I liked that it was an interesting variation on a theme, for a change, and "John Amsterdam" promised to be a deep and followable (is that a word??!!) character. The lady doctor was a dud as far a character for a relationship, but that was a minor detail.

    I have wondered where Nikolaj Coster-Waldau disappeared to, and I think its time some smart network brought him back!moreless
