New Amsterdam 2018

Inspired by the oldest public hospital in America, this unique medical drama follows the brilliant, 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.

New Amsterdam season 1

I enjoy most of the medical dramas for as long as they air. Not sure where the storyline will go with the main character as he struck me as a little too ADD/ADHD to be the one in charge...but I guess we shall see. (NBC ordered a full season)

Season2 premiere managed to surprise the heck outta me!
I did kind of wonder why Max took the baby to the hospital daycare, but I honestly had no thought that he actually had to!

I thought that Sharpe and/or Bloom wouldn't have survived the crash. I do feel bad for Lauren with the leg injury as she wouldn't be able to take any pain killers! I was just about crying with her when she was up on the roof trying to massage the pain away.

That hire-me-promote me argument between Sharpe and the young woman that was working in Sharpe's office? not sure what that was about. Or maybe that is something that is going to be revealed in a future episode?

Also glad that Kapoor didn't have to retire!! LOL

that was the last person I thought would die! I thought Laura Bloom would die as she wanted to leave, then I thought is was Sharpe because she gave up Max to a new doctor...that was a total shock! I thought he was bringing his kid to the hospital so that his wife could heal from the wounds and the c-section, not because she was DEAD!!!

I'm also glad Kapoor didn't have to retire! It was kinda of funny how all his diagnoses were wrong! it was a good way to lighten up the episode.

I can kind of understand why he is mad at the doctor that was operating on his wife, and couldn't save her. But... as a doctor he should know that not everyone can be saved. Also, he is in charge of the hospital, somebody should kick him in the ass and tell him that holding grudges against co-workers doesn't set a good example!! Specially since 3 months have passed!!

Whatever argument happened between him and Helen too has been causing a problem for quite a long time.

I din't like that apart too the grudge against the other doctor is so out of place since HE too is a doctor!
The problem with Helen is that she gave him up to the young doctor and she went away guess he felt abandoned and now that same young doctor just blackmailed Helen with Max's health into giving her the job. That's because Helen got her fired in the first season! ...Am I making sense?? anyway it's all a big twist!

I am going to like the straight laced military man butting heads with Max. It amused me to see him adjust his stride to be in synch with Max, but shouldn't he be carrying a clipboard or notebook or recorder if he is the admin assistant?

Get her a dog? What the hell?
There is more to owning a dog than just taking it for a walk twice a day! Sure, a dog walker is probably a cheaper option compared to a nurse, but wouldn't one of those 'I've fallen and can't get up' gadgets be a cheaper option than getting a dog?

an interesting episode! well that whole get a dog idea was a bit silly in the end it'll cost more than the nurse! I was so disappointed at Karpoor son! what a coward thing to do. I guess he didn't really care about her, he just did it to hurt his dad as he was interested in her at the beginning. Hope he doesn't come back.

She can't say that Kapoor didn't warn her. He told her right from the start this his son had problems. I remember back when Kapoor lent money to her for her pet to have surgury, and Rohan was so mad at his dad because he wouldn't even help him that way. Being a recovering addict, I don't blame Kapoor for not handing over cash.
I think Ella and Kapoor make a better couple anyway!!

I finally sat and watched last weeks episode.

I thought it would be about Max's baby being hurt or even kidnapped!!
Somebody should really tell that man that leaving a baby in the care of a teenager that you just met might not be the best idea.
Or, abandoning that same baby in the middle of the sidewalk when you run back to start doing CPR on a man in the street....grrrr!

and then they continued with....
A random barber dishing out prescription meds?
Sharp handing out a lethal dose of meds. Is there no record keeping in the pharmacy?
Kapoor and Iggy making a house call to check for lead? And then suing the city
This episode was just too unbelievable, even for me LOL

yeah it wasn't a great episode I thought something was going to happen to Max's baby not with the teen as he could see the baby all the time, but on the side walk when he left the stroller!
as for the barber...it's one thing that he gets the blood pressure reading and keep a log and another to give out prescription drugs! so many things can go wrong he's not a doctor! that was just stupid.
the house call to check for lead was laughable.
yeah it was a stupid episode

Enjoyed this episode much more than last week.
I wonder where the new admin assisstant was? Nobody around to help Max on his quest to have the insurance provider change it's policy to cover a procedure? Not to be callous, but cancer is a tough one to beat. Would it be fair to have a surrogate for a baby, and then not be there to be a parent? Yes, there are lots of people wanting to adopt babies, but this surrogate was the sister. If she didn't want a child herself, would it be that easy to walk away from the baby that is all that is left of your family?

The lady astronaut story was interesting. She doesn't want treatment, 'cause it could blow her chances of going into space next year. So, she's willing to walk out of the hospital and risk having a blackout behind the wheel of her car and possibly kill people?? Makes her as much of a psychopath as that litle girl! When they showed her floating in the stars I thought the quick-fix they did on her heart didn't work!

Speaking of that little girl, she really creeped me out!! Man, she could switch from sweet to evil in a single breath!! I don't think coming in for weekly appointments is going to work in the long term? I hope her brother survives!

Bloom 'meditating' and coming up with a solution? Kapoor's reaction made me laugh. He'd been sitting there for who-knows how long and wham! she's up and off in a matter of minutes! LOL

Sharp picked up on Max's comment about sharing the baby's laugh with Georgia?

It was a good and interesting episode this week I agree.
I thought the cancer patient was very selfish in wanting a baby at all costs, she even had to have her uterus removed! very selfish.

Glad to see Max came through, well the Indian guy did! LOL yeah about the admin assisstant think he's part of the hospital board now, don't think we'll be seeing him anytime soon.


The girl was SCARY! wow great acting there! she was so credible in that interaction with Dr. Iggy.
wonder if there's going to be a follow up with the story?!


So is the doctor Bloom is having sex with a patient ? or is he the counselor? so he wasn't really on holiday? what did I miss?


I think Sharp and Max are going to end up together! for sure. Don't you think?

I think Iggy made a huge mistake in thinking he can teach her empathy. She's only a kid and knows how to read people...even better than a trained professional. I think all he is teaching her is how to manipulate people more successfully. I hope they do a follow up on the psychopath girl, and I hope it isn't after she murders her whole family!

Bloom meditated her solution. She was using Dr. Ligon (sex) to take her mind off of her pain, instead of pain killers. So she is going back to her support group. And now it looks like Dr. Ligon is the leader of her support group. It's not a storyline that interests me, but I guess addiction calls for extreme solutions in some cases?

I personally don't want to see Max and Sharp get together. I know she looks at him that way, but he would be just too draining! Can you imagine having a full-time career and also trying to keep up with him? Nope, he needs somebody that has the time and energy to deal with all his quirks.

I think this show is aiming to get itself cancelled? Another unbelievable week, I had high hopes after the last week!


Woman deliberately crashes van, to get church group ladies their health issues covered on their pre-existing conditions? She could have killed them all, and I don't think travel insurance works that way? I could be wrong....
The removal of guardianship and abortion done that quickly.....
Max living in an apartment with his dead wifes blood dried into the carpet? Could be romantic, could be a health hazard. Either way......
Iggy going ahead with an adoption, and lying to the adoption agency that his husband was onboard.....

I think I am starting to hate-watch, and that's not a good thing :(

This show is going downhill! I did not LIKE this episode one bit! I don't think it's healthy to have blood stains with a baby in the room! don't think it's romantic, it's crazy.

The other storylines were boring and unrealistic.

I'm going to give this one a few more episodes in the hopes it's gets better or I'm done

this episode was much better than last week's.
although I'm getting a bit fed up with the max's ghost wife storyline...let it go!
the play therapy was emotional and so was the ending.

At least Max let the cleanup crew in! So they will find the huge bloodstain, Max will have to go into therapy and that will be the end of the ghost? I think we are coming into the winter break, so that will be the midseason cliffhanger?
I didn't like how quick they did the leukemia girl. She comes in, gets diagnosed, finds a long-lost father marrow donor and it's done, Sometimes I wish they would make a story arc instead of one and done. Also, leaving the voice mail on the dads machine? OMG. How did he even know that was the right number???
Max coming after the doctor that didn't save ghost wife, but was on the surgery that paralyzed the woman thats going to sue the hospital? Even though Max has forgiven Helen (still not sure exactly what she did) he still had a hate on for this doctor. Now, will Maxl have to apologize for his behavior at some point?
I also liked the play, I don't think it's realistic that traumatized vets would perform in the lobby of a hospital, but it gave some more backstory to Kapoor.

the leukemia girl, when they were talking in the isle she tells the doc that her dad is alive and she uncomfortable? calling him so the doc offered to make the call that's how he knew it was the right number.


Looks like the doctor who couldn't save Max's wife is a honest and good one! I was surprised that he had reported the incident the next day! even Max looked surprised! Max has to apologize for his behavior at some point. Wonder if the paralyzed patient will take the money or sue?

My problem was with him leaving a voice mail. That kind of personal detail, left at a phone number that you have never dialed before is not professional!

Personal details, specially from somewhere like a hospital, should be given only if it is confirmed that they are speaking to the right person. What if this child had been the product of an affair, and his wife picked up the message? So much could have gone wrong.
Yeah, I know, TV land! LOL


After so many years in pain, and it was deliberate to keep it quiet!! I think she has every right to sue. I wonder how many other 'accidents' that first doctor made and were covered up....
Somehow I'm sure Max will come up with a solution to save the hospital from a lawsuit, or paying out $$.

geeez what a heartbreaking episode!
the poor woman and her dead baby was so intense and sad to watch, but at least it gave closure to the ghost wife! yay!!

Ella has made the right decision in keeping the baby I'm sure Kapoor will be a great granddad.

Don't understand why Frome didn't tell his husband about the adoption, now I think he has done damage to their relationship, adoption is a serious thing.

That tramp! the dr. with the glasses she has it in for Sharpe! she took the opportunity to get her out of the way when she called the head of the hospital to get the charges dropped and then telling her that she thought she was on their side is so fake and unbelievable!

Yes, I think that's what finally pushed him to say goodbye.

Atho....Nobody that came to clean has said a work about the huge old stain, I wonder if he kept them away from that part of the apartment?

Kapoor has officially moved up to my favorite in this show. He is just so calm and professional and confident. Even when he comes up with the wrong diagnosis. I'm glad for him that he's going to be a grandpa...or maybe take on the role of Dad?? He originally was going to ask her out before his son came into the story?


I hope that Bloom is a quick healer. Her surgery and recovery don't interest me in the least, specially if she goes back to the sex/addiction storyline!


She is a backstabbing bitch that one! The look on her face after getting Sharpe in trouble? She knew exactly what she was doing! But the look on Helen's face showed that she knows she has an enemy.

I think no one said anything about the blood stain because Sharpe and Bloom were there when it happened, and guess the other all knew, and there was no point in saying anything?


Wish we could see more stories about Kapoor such a down to earth person. Bloom on the other hand is getting to be quite BORING with her pain! not interesting at all for me as well.


oh I want something bad for that backstabbing bitch to happen! good thing that Sharpe acknowledges that she is an enemy and to be careful, hope she can figure a way to get rid of her for good soon!

Interesting way to lock down a hospital? People running here, people running there, security doors not locked down, the chief in the basement searching for escapees, and all the security/police hiding in the same room? LOL

Even with all that, I enjoyed the episode. I wonder if Reynolds is really going to leave? He hasn't been front & center lately, and his fiancee has a job offer elsewhere, so it wouldn't surprise me.
It looks like Sharpe is staying, She now has yet another reason to oust her replacement? I wonder if Max really fell for her speech about supporting Sharpe and vowing to do everything she can to help her get her reputation back?

Vijay kinda popped the question! I wonder if Ella will take him up on his offer? And how long till the son shows up on the doorstep....

It was an interesting episode, the way the lockdown was handled was stupid to say the least!! LOL!
it was a good way to get more info on the characters, I knew the therapy doctor was and addict, and I liked the way she tells him to loose her number!
and that Iggy is so full of himself! I mean I didn't buy for a second all that shit he was saying about himself such a narcissist! the way he has no consideration for his husband I was glad to see that HE didn't fool the therapist he wanted to fire.

I do hope Ella moves in with Vijay I think they would be great together. Sharpe has to stay if anything she needs to put that bitch in her place! arggghhh that speech to Max was so FAKE!! he didn't fall for it,

They should have just done the whole episode around Kapoor! I didn't realize that was him when they started off 14 years ago with hair! Going through the years, and the plant getting stronger and healthier while his patient stayed comatose was sad. I felt bad for the wife, and was in awe of how Kapoor councelled her, allowing her to finally let her husband go.

Not sure where they are going with the Iggy storyline. He used to be a professional, but they are making him into a whole 'nuther needy character. I'm not interested in going down that road with him.

I am enjoying the newly fixed Lauren and her take charge attitude. Much better than the drug addict!

Not sure how I feel about them having a miracle cure for the vaping case. As far as I have seen, there is no happy ending once the lungs get to that point. Yeah, I know, storyland :(

I think we have finally seen the beginning of the end of the 'replacement cancer doc'?

I thought that the vaping kid was going to get a lung transplant from the comatose man, it would have made a lot more sense than the miracle.

oh and I'm glad Max went to the playdate! I don't think he's going to end up with that mom, I think he's destined to end up with Sharpe.

Together Max and Sharpe would be a power couple! But I don't want them together!! LOL
They are friends, they think alike and they have respect for each other. That would all change if they got into a relationship.
Yes!! The coma guy being a donor would have been a better way. I didn't even think of that the whole time I watched that part of the story, I was just blown away by Kapoor!
