  • Interesting concept. I hope the writers can do it justice.

    I watched the pilot for New Amsterdam last night and while I didn't follow everything that happened, there was definitely enough merit to keep me watching for a few more episodes. I think the concept is really unique - something that tv hasn't seen in a while where crime dramas are concerned. I am not sure if the crime drama part is supposed to be secondary to John's story of immortality, but last night it definitely took a backseat, perhaps because we were still in the exposition of his character. There were some great inside jokes centering around John's inability to die - my favorite was the joke about how long he had been sober. It was very unclear how many of the characters were privy to his immortality, though. I that very confusing. I am hoping that this will be a strong show and that with a few more episodes we will fully understand who John Amsterdam is.
