New Amsterdam (NBC) -- S: Ryan Eggold -- Premieres 9/25/18




"NEW AMSTERDAM"

"PILOT" ORIGINAL

09/25/2018 (10:01PM - 11:00PM) (Tuesday) : SERIES PREMIERE - Inspired by the oldest public hospital in America, this unique medical drama follows the brilliant and charming Dr. Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold), the institution's newest medical director who sets out to tear up the bureaucracy and provide exceptional care. How can he help? Well, the doctors and staff have heard this before. Not taking "no" for an answer, Dr. Goodwin must disrupt the status quo and prove he will stop at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed, underfunded and underappreciated hospital - the only one in the world capable of treating Ebola patients, prisoners from Rikers and the President of the United States under one roof - and return it to the glory that put it on the map. Also starring Freema Agyeman as Dr. Helen Sharpe, Janet Montgomery as Dr. Lauren Bloom, Jocko Sims as Dr. Floyd Reynolds, Tyler Labine as Dr. Iggy Frome and Anupam Kher as Dr. Vijay Kapoor. TV-14 D, L

Ryan Eggold used to be one of the stars of The Blacklist until he was killed off last season. Hence, that's why he's here.

At first I thought they were bringing back "New Amsterdam" the FOX show.

Re: New Amsterdam (NBC) -- S: Ryan Eggold -- Premieres 9/25/18

I did watch this today. It was okay. Apparently this series is loosely based on a true story. But, there's too many doctor/hospital shows on the air currently along with this like The Good Doctor, Chicago Med, Grey's, and The Resident. I already watch Med and The Good Doctor. So I don't blame anyone for not having any interest in investing in this show.

However, I did read it was the highest rated show Tuesday night.

I guess the big hook of this show is that the lead (Eggold) is apparently dying of cancer.

I do like some of the supporting cast like Janet Montgomery and Jocko Sims from The Last Ship. Considering it took me 6 days to get to this, I'm not sure how I'll be able to keep up with this once more shows start premiering this month.

my wife liked it, which means I'm stuck watching.

I liked it a bit hokey and predictable but it runs the through every emotion basically. Girlfriend really liked it so I am with TGM and will continue to be watching.

Couldn't get past the promos. Seemed so pompous. I'll wait to see if it has any legs and has good word of mouth.

Figured this show would be filled with Medical Drama clichés and it hasn't disappointed so far. At least it is pulling them off well (IMO). Best part of the second episode was the surgeon getting schooled on how he has his own "must do" routines/rituals.

This.

I’m liking it so far... and I’m getting over calling him Tom Keene.

I’m in for the season.

I enjoy the show so far but why change the name of the hospital? Seems dumb

We’re still watching, so good to know it’s been picked up. Not sure it needs 22.

I kind f wish they’d spen more times focusing on specific cases/characters each episode instead of spreading it amongst the 3 departments.

I do like the psych and brain doctor tag team. They work well together.

It also helps that Ryan Eggold is very good in this role. I am liking this more and more each episode.

Re: New Amsterdam (NBC) -- S: Ryan Eggold -- Premieres 9/25/18

I have stopped watching the Chicago family of shows, gave up on Gray’s many years back, and am at least 12 eps behind on The Resident, but I am already hooked on this show and watch it shortly after it airs. A genuine pleasant surprise. I like the variety of patients they treat, United Nations diplomats, folks from what I presume is a somewhat nearby prison (Rikers Island), it just feels a bit more fresh than what I have seen on other medical dramas.

It also helps that so far I do not quickly recognize the folks being treated on this show, unlike my immediate recognition of well known character actors that oftentimes play the person with the tricky to diagnose/fix malady of the week on shows like Chicago Med, which can take me out of the show.

Fun fact, when I googled to confirm the spelling of Rikers Island I learned that New York is planning to shut it down. You learn something new every day.

Oof, that was a rough hour.

Glad to have it back on the air, but... oof.

Spoiler:
... but we all knew that she wouldn't survive the accident.
Spoiler:
... we are talking about Bloom, right?
Spoiler:
... WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE GEORGIA?!??!??!!

Re: New Amsterdam (NBC) -- Season 2 Thread -- Premieres 9/24/19

Yeah that was a tearjerker opener. After they revealed that Sharpe and Bloom survived the accident, it was going to be Georgia. I also figured it might be her because the actress was never as "series regular" even in the 1st season. That's going to be interesting seeing Max still fighting cancer and raising a newborn.

Re: New Amsterdam (NBC) -- S: Ryan Eggold -- Premieres 9/25/18

Just an FYI, but the Season 2 finale was this week.

Here are some notes on the show and on Season 2:

  • In January 2020, the show was renewed through Season 5, so we're getting 3 more seasons.
  • Dr. Floyd Reynolds, the Head of Cardiac Surgery (played by Jocko Sims), left NA to chase his lawyer girlfriend, Evie (Margot Bingham), who took a job on the West Coast.
  • Dr. Cassian Shin, a new trauma surgeon (played by Daniel Dae Kim), joined the cast in the last two episodes, one of which was not aired.
  • "Matter of Seconds" (S02E18) aired as the finale on Tuesday, April 14, 2020, with a 70-minute runtime.
  • The episode "Pandemic", which introduces Dr. Shin, was not aired due to its time sensitive topic (and taken out of the production order). Kim contracted COVID-19 while filming the episode and has since recovered. In a message before the finale aired, Eggold and Kim explained the situation and introduced a series of clips from "Pandemic" that filled us in on who Dr. Shin and his temperament and expertise so that the behavior of his character in the finale wouldn't be questioned. The audience was told the episode would air at a later time.


This was a strong season and I really love this show.

Too bad we don't talk about it more around here.

Yeah this was a great season sad to see Jocko Sims leave...thought he would stay at the last second.

Agree sad to see not more dialogue on it.
