New Amsterdam: Season 1 (2018)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic 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 (26) | Top Critics (14)

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.

Top Critic

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

Medical drama is fun, but totally predictable.
