New Amsterdam: Season 1 (2018 - 2019)


Season 1
New Amsterdam

Critics Consensus

Overcrowded, overwrought, and overly familiar, New Amsterdam plays more like an exquisite corpse of pre-existing shows than a breakthrough for the genre -- though that may be enough for medical drama devotees.

Tv Season Info

Inspired by Bellevue, the oldest public hospital in America, this unique medical drama follows the brilliant and charming Dr. Max Goodwin, 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.

Critic Reviews for New Amsterdam Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (19)

It's like The Good Doctor with cancery old guy instead of autistic young guy. It's like Grey's Anatomy with caring instead of boffing. It's like E.R. without a cardiology department. People are going to love it.

May 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Addressing medicine's many ills requires acknowledging their complexity; New Amsterdam does the opposite, leaving only frustration and fear in its wake. For a show about healing the system, it may do real harm.

Nov 28, 2018 | Full Review…

New Amsterdam the show, not just the hospital, needs a good, thorough shakeup.

Sep 25, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Even if you are familiar with television's tendency to make shows about great white-dude geniuses who tell everybody else what's what and inspire the uninspired, the bluntness of the instrument at issue here might surprise you.

Sep 25, 2018 | Full Review…

The long-term diagnosis is iffy at best, with the main characters and their cases coming off as not that special or interesting. Some creative surgery is needed, lest New Amsterdam risk expiring prematurely on its own operating table.

Sep 25, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

No, seriously, another network hospital show with all the same old predictable beats? Yes, sigh. Another one of those.Seriously.

Sep 20, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

I'd never bet against a hospital series working in Buffalo.

May 8, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It sure feels like something you've seen before.

Dec 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Another medical drama, which is I guess what the networks are bringing back with such force...

Dec 5, 2018 | Full Review…

New Amsterdamn does an admirable job of trying to not just treat the diseases or patch up the wounds, but explore the social, cultural, and emotional causes behind them.

Sep 26, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a pretty straightforward show. However, the show thrives because of the enjoyability of watching the cast work.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Medical drama is fun, but totally predictable.

Audience Reviews for New Amsterdam: Season 1

  • Sep 26, 2020
    Series started with an interesting if implausible premise which held together for about ten episodes, until, with the fantasy derived disease presentations and treatments (did they bother with a medical advisor?) and over wrought interpersonal relationships, the series deteriorated into a B series daytime soap. Don't waste your time. There are good shows out there....
  • Jun 20, 2020
    IMDB gave this 8.9 out of 10 ...... god knows why.. come up for air they talk so fast and say so much so quick... like anyone over 50 cant get cast in anything the ones with the most talent... the ones that win awards.... Bette Midler looks likes she Is in her late 30s ... Jane Fonda look like she just turned 40. Tina Turner is well wow... all these women could act with a shower curtain and a plunger and win a golden globe... yet no one casts them ...and that is why shows are crap. They were an example I could make a 2 page list. If you're watching a show that's garbage try picture somebody else in the role somebody amazing and if that doesn't work really is just garage

    A far cry from the drama series in the 10 hour split film formula. It's a feel good series that's unlikely going to be everybody's cup of tea, but refreshing and very pleasant to watch. The sweet natured protagonist makes the experience of watching this into a delight, although I must admit that I've been cursed with sweet teeth.

    This show is the most democratic show I have ever seen. This show cares most about illegal immigrants than hardworking Americans. I am so sick of Hollywood doing this. They true to make every black person good and every white person a complete racist! Don't waste your time on this terrible show!
  • Mar 22, 2020
    Five stars for a medical show that finally sounds real. Real issues, common situation in the US health care system, and finally more empathy that Grey's Anatomy took 16 years to find. It will be a round of applause to me + for the characters and their stories. As a professional in children education, episode 2 represents what we face everyday, with prescriptions with unneeded medications all the time. First time I see this in a show, and I like(d) it deeply.

    Ok. Watchable but not good.

    Whilst I can see that some of the characters are borderline caricatures, each & every one are a delight to immerse oneself into. We are thougherly enjoying this
  • Oct 25, 2019
    I was absolutely loving the show until the new season. OF COURSE his wife had to die for Max to be with DR SHARP! She wanted a baby in the first season and now I guess now shes about to have one based on the fact that they played it this way. You could tell they were leaning that way in the first season. What a complete bunch of BS! Sorry but no longer interested in this show.

    Pretty amazing medical serie!
