Critic Reviews for New Amsterdam Season 2

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (0)

A good episode of TV, but the most tension comes within the last 10 minutes.

Oct 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

New Amsterdam makes a bold statement about handling and processing grief through trauma, while taking time to focus a bit more on secondary characters.

Oct 8, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The premiere pulled all the stops trying to give us misdirects and feeding us bits and pieces about what happened in the aftermath of New Amsterdam Season 1 Episode 22's accident.

Audience Reviews for New Amsterdam: Season 2

  • Apr 28, 2021
    Though the show felt a tad bit lackluster and overcrowded in its first season, it finally felt like it was slowing down a bit, and being more appreciative of the heart of the narrative. However, it still falls short in many areas.

    Even better than the last one. You can feel the show runners and the cast have found their rhythm and style. You feel great, wholesome, then you want to scream at the world, then sorrow is to strong, then you're full of wonder, then you're plotting a revolution...all in one episode. Just watch it.

    I've enjoyed New Amsterdam up until Season 2 Episode 15. The episode felt hallow, despite some of the serious topics it covered. The worst part of the episode for me however, was the couples therapy session. I'm alright with the outcome, but I am not alright with how it got there. I felt like it was a Beauty and the Beast thing, telling the woman to shove her feelings down and just merry The Beast. Oh sure, the guy wasn't a jerk as far as we know, but she was disgusted by him, she said so several times, and instead of asking why she was disgusted by him, instead of dealing with the root issue, the doctor (and her fiance) basically convinced her to, "Get over it." - Get over your feelings of disgust woman, the man says he loves you, and you once loved him. Your feelings of disgust are not valid. Your feelings changed, and that's not right, you have to love this man back because he clearly loves you and that's all that matters. Your feelings of disgust, or grossness, we're not going to talk about them, we're going to assume your reason why, and we're also going to tell you that the reason we assume, and whatever reason you have, is invalid. All that matters is that the man loves you, and you once loved him, so get over your disgust with him, get over that gross feeling, and marry that man because it's what is expected of you by the man, by your two families, and clearly by the doctor, who I respected as a character until this episode. Other parts of the episode felt flat as well. It felt like it was trying to play along with the rest of the episodes, but was missing the notes. It's like it was hitting the beats, but the it wasn't harmonizing, it was trying too hard and coming off as artificial or forced, to me. The whole S2 E15 was a disaster IMO, but that couples therapy was the worst.

    New Amsterdam remains a fairly entertaining medical drama.

    It was a great show to watch.

    I loved Season 1, the cast was great and the stories, though predictable and sometimes schmaltzy, were inspiring and hopeful. Season 2, however, has gone completely off the rails. I have never seen a show go downhill so fast. First, they killed Max's wife (the only character who made him bearable) instead of exploring a loving yet conflicted marriage through its ups and downs (a rarity in tv). Second, the characters are all acting out of character and, frankly, I don't like them anymore. Third, the stories have become ridiculous, stale, and unimaginative. The original premise of challenging the healthcare system and focusing on the patients is skimmed over as briefly as possible in favor of the melodrama of the doctors' personal lives. Their focus on the exploration of grief is unsatisfying, consisting mainly of brooding and moping, with little to no self-reflection involved on the part of the bereaved. What has happened to my formerly favorite tv show? It's sad that they chose to go this direction and that a very good ensemble cast is given this material to work with every week.

    They really need to tone down the drum music in each episode. It's distracting, annoying, and unnecessary.
  • Dec 05, 2019
    Do not leave another show on a cliffhanger! This is a really good show. KEEP IT GOING!!!!
  • Nov 11, 2019
    The first season was ok...but the second is unbelievably bad. All character relationships are gone. Seeing his dead wife is just to much.
