Hoping FOX keeps it alive
23 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It seems right now that New Amsterdam is on the fence on whether it will return for a 2nd season or not. I just hope FOX does see fit to renew it. To be honest, the pilot episode was so-so, but my DVR kept recording the shows and a month later I decided to catch the next one I had missed. That was all it took. I have eagerly watched all the episodes, even buying one on iTunes that I had deleted. I have no idea about all the prior Highlander references, but to me this show is fresh and different. Plain old cop shows are no fun to me, but this one has the twist of his being immortal and seeing into his past. Plus, Nikolaj is pretty to look at.

Give the viewers a chance to catch on and they will be hooked on this show, none of the premature canceling of it please...say like what happened with Firefly....
