I just finished watching 2 episodes FOX‘s  new series “New Amsterdam which premiered last March 4, 2008. Two days after it’s pilot episode was released, another episode “Golden Boy” was made available already, and thanks to the power of the internet, I got the pleasure of downloading.

The show is about a New York City homicide detective John Amsterdam who is cursed with immortality, for standing in front of a streaking sword to stop the murder of a Native American girl sometime in 1642. Due to this act of kindness, the girl rescued Amsterdam from the stab wound by making him immortal, but warns him: “you will not grow old, you will not die, until you find the one and your souls are wed”. This whole idea made this show very interesting.

The show stars Nikolaj Coster Waldau (John Amsterdam), Zuleikha Robinson (Eva MArquez), Alexie Gilmore (Dr. Sara Dillane), and Stephen Henderson (Omar).

New Amsterdam Aires every Monday at 9pm.

3 Critical:

1. Gonna last? – introduction of characters were good, there’s the mystery, and the pacing of scenes, and dialogues are great, I’m gonna say this one won’t die after just a couple of episodes.
2. New York! New York! – there’s this one scene where he stands in front of a wall, (after placing on photo marked 2007) with pictures of a specific place in NY, dating way back 1878. How cool is that?
3. Another Dr. Sara? – so what’s up with FOX and Dr. Sara’s ? (FYI: “Prison Break” also has a Dr. Sara character).
