New Amsterdam ends its season without a cliffhanger!
April 14th, 2020 under New Amsterdam. [ Comments: none ]


I love New Amsterdam because it throws a straight arrow. It doesn’t do BS stunts like other medical shows. That was until last year’s season finale when several characters were involved in an ambulance crash and one of them died. We did not find out until the fall who it was.

Anyways, that was then. This year almost every shows’ season was cut short because of Coronavirus, including the NBC drama. Tonight, they will be airing their final filmed episode of the season at 9p. However, there was another episode that was completed this year. That one was about a pandemic, and the producers and the networks thought it was too close to home to air. It will air later on.

Now that we got that out of the way, tonight we meet a new character on the show. Dr. Cassian Shin (Daniel Dae Kim) joins the team as the head trauma surgeon. His methods are much different than Sharpe’s (Freema Agyeman) and the two of them butt heads. Will they be able to work together?

Max (Ryan Eggold) meets a boy and his parents and he knows something is wrong with the child, They do some tests and the boy has an incurable disease that will take his life before he is 30. There are some trials being done and Max will try to get him into one. Will he be able to charm his way into one like everything else he does?

Dr. Bloom’s (Janet Montgomery) ER is crashing, as in all of the patients keep crashing. She needs to figure out why before she loses a patient.

Dr. Kapoor (Anupam Kher) wishes he could lose a patient’s wife. That is because she keeps hitting on him. How will he handle the attention?

Tonight’s episode is a perfect ending for a perfect season. I will miss having new episodes until the show comes backs at some time.

The Good Doctor and New Amsterdam’s Daniel Dae Kim has Coronavirus
March 19th, 2020 under Coronavirus, New Amsterdam. [ Comments: none ]


Lost’s Daniel Dae Kim might be a co-creator of The Good Doctor and guest star on New Amsterdam, but that does not mean playing a doctor on television will make him immune from the Coronavirus.

He was working in Manhattan on the NBC medical drama when they told them they were shutting down production for the season. Therefore, he headed back to Hawaii to be with his family. On the plane ride back, he noticed he wasn’t feeling well. He called his doctor, and eventually got in to take the test. He says it is uncomfortable.

Anyway, he got the test results back, and it returned the positive. Maybe knowing what was wrong with him was enough to make him feel better, but it worked.

The actor says that he is willing to donate his blood to be tested to come up with a cure for this virus. Something I am sure he will find a way to be written into a future Good Doctor episode.

Kim also wanted to point out that we should not call this the Chinese Virus because it puts Asian-Americans’ lives at risk. He is Asian-American and he has it, but that is not where he got it from. If he did, then he would call it the New York Virus.

This is another example of why Donald Trump doesn’t understand how his words are dangerous. Several Asian-Americans have already been attacked physically and verbally because of that rhetoric. This is a time when we should be coming together as one, and not getting further apart. Coronavirus doesn’t care where you are from, what color your skin is, what Gd you believe in and who you love? It just cares that you are a warm body it can infect.

Get well soon, Kim! And can you offer to donate the medical props from the two medical dramas to a local hospital like The Resident?

BTWF: Tyler Labine in Sabrina the Teenage Witch

Before Tyler Labine was fighting the devil in Reaper, he went to school with Sabrina the Teenage Witch. He looks the same now as he did when he was 17 in that 1996 telemovie.

New Amsterdam’s Code Silver episode gets the gold
January 14th, 2020 under New Amsterdam. [ Comments: none ]


New Amsterdam is back on NBC tonight at 10p and they deliver a powerful episode. When we last left off, the prisoners from Rikers were in Bellvue. Hospital. Tonight, they take over, and the hospital is put on lockdown. This will cause several of the doctors to be locked up together and face their truths.

Dr. Sharpe (Freema Agyeman) was demoted from the head of Oncology, and she is deciding whether or not she wants to stay with the hospital. She tells (Max) of her decision, and he is going to do whatever he can to convince her to stay. Although, it will not help things when they find an injured prisoner who needs their help to survive. They will have to put off Sharpe’s decision until after they save this patient’s life. That is if they can save her with everything going on.

They are not the only ones who have to save someone. Bloom (Janet Montgomery) is out of her surgery and getting wheeled around by Zach (JJ Feild) when the hospital is put on a Code Silver. She and Zach go to hide in a room where a patient needs her appendix out. Bloom is the only person who can operate, but she does not have her pain pills, and she cannot stand on her injured leg. How will she perform the desperately needed surgery?

Meanwhile, Reynolds (Jocko Sims) is in an operating room with a prisoner who is the other prisoner’s target. The other prisoners will do anything to kill her and do not care who else they take down with her. How far will they go to get her?

Iggy (Taylor Labine) and his husband (Mike Doyle) are trapped in a room, and they finally have time to talk out their problems. Will they save their marriage, or is this the end for them?

Finally, Dr. Kapoor (Anupam Kher) is in a room with his son’s pregnant baby mama (Dierdre Friel) and she is afraid she lost his grandchild. Her OCD is causing her to think the worse. Is she right?

Can you believe all of this happens in an hour? But it does. That is why NBC renewed the medical drama for three more seasons. Much to my delight

New Amsterdam is diagnosed with three more seasons
January 11th, 2020 under New Amsterdam. [ Comments: none ]


NBC announced today that it picked up New Amsterdam for not one, not two, but for three more seasons. That means as of now it will last one more season than This Is Us. Personally, I think the medical drama is better than the other one these days. However, the leading gives NA good ratings, so I am OK with it.

If you have not seen the show, you should check it out. It is one of the rare medical dramas that is not about the illness of the week. It is about caring for the patient in a system that is not set up for that anymore. Yes, there is the soapy part of the show, but it is not cheesy.

That is why New Amsterdam was my favorite show of last season and my must watch live one of this season. It is that enticing.
