    Great introduction of John Amsterdam and the world his lives in past and present. We start out nicely in the present with John chasing a suspect but during the chase he collapses. It was a nice way for the writers to give us his backstory. As a new comer to the new world John is stabbed and hexed by a native person he saved. The hex lets him live forever until he finds his true love. I really like how all of the key facts of the show were established in the first episode. We also got to meet his key satellites that surround him throughout the series. His friend at the bar, his sexy tough partner, and his jerk backup detective. In a final bold move John even potentially meets the woman who's love will kill him. Great to start to what appears to be a great series also avoiding all the cliche labels the uninformed threw at this show.
