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 (16)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

[New Amsterdam] takes itself so, so seriously.

May 8, 2019 | Rating: 6.3/10 | 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...

Audience Reviews for New Amsterdam: Season 1

    That show made me cry every episode. Even if it's not the best show ever, and it has some issues I wish we've seen more hurt-felt shows like this one

    Briliant. A much needed change from the usual hospital dramas.
  • Jun 13, 2019
    The show is nothing but fantasy just like most other medical dramas.
  • Jun 01, 2019
    Liked the show initially. Then it turned. I get it, it pulls at your heart strings, but socialized medicine means the hospital doesn't pay, it means the tax payers pay. That's what they play well, and cover up. This is a socialist involved in a tv show that thinks that hospitals need to give everyone free healthcare. Free college, free healthcare, free childcare... this is childish bs. The day we get free healthcare is the day i know all hope is lost for America, and the day I halt my business because i refuse to pay 70-90% of my hard work to pay for those who are strung out and those who refuse to work. Yes i want to help those people, but i shouldn't suffer because they made bad decisions. Get a new plot New Amsterdam, because you're socialist ideas are about to get you cancelled.
