10 Things We Need to Find Out in Season 2 of New Amsterdam

Just when you thought there was no more room on the primetime TV schedule for yet another medical drama, in came New Amsterdam in late 2018. Starring Ryan Eggold and Freema Agyeman, the series is about Dr. Max Goodwin (Eggold), the incoming medical director of a public hospital called New Amsterdam who makes sweeping changes in the name of providing proper health care while battling his own cancer diagnosis.

The series, based on the book Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital by Eric Manheimer, hasn’t exactly been well-reviewed by critics. Nonetheless, it has been renewed for a second season, which is set to debut on September 24, 2019.

Farewell Emmy hug for ‘Sense8’? Finale movie ‘Amor Vincit Omnia’ could get these 24 nominations
Sense8” fans fought hard for a proper ending when Netflix cancelled the series after its second-season cliffhanger. The streaming service didn’t give the show a whole new season to continue its story, but they did greenlight a farewell movie to wrap things up. Titled “Amor Vincit Omnia” (which translates to “Love Conquers All”), it aired last June, and now it’s in the race for Emmys, where it could earn up to 24 nominations. Scroll down for its complete list of Emmy submissions.

“Pose” could make history in drama categories with its unprecedented representation of transgender talent in front of and behind the camera, and “Sense8” could do the same in long form categories. Jamie Clayton has been singled out among her group of psychically linked heroes for consideration as a lead actress, while series co-creator Lana Wachowski was put forward for writing and directing — both women are trans.

2019 Emmy awards nominations ballot: See all 21 Best TV Movie contenders from ‘Agatha Raisin And The Curious Curate’ to ‘The Violet Hour’
The made-for-tv movie was a programming staple for the broadcast networks in the 1970s and 1980s. While it fell out of favor in the 1990s and was even dropped as an Emmy Awards category for three years beginning in 2011, it has been on an upswing as of late. This year, 21 telefilms are in contention for the five nominations that will be revealed on July 12.

All 22,000 plus voting members of the TV academy have until June 24 to cast their 2019 Emmy Awards nominations ballots for their favorite TV movies. In the past, voters were limited in the number of telefilms that they could put forth. In 2017 that cap (which was usually 10 per category) was lifted. And, as opposed to the Oscars, voters for the Emmys do not rank their choices and nominees are determined by a simple tally.

Doctor Who's Martha Jones Deserves a Better Legacy Than the One She Got

Doctor Who Almost Cast A New Companion Before Catherine Tate Returned

Donna Noble is nowadays considered one of the best companions in Doctor Who‘s history, so it’s weird to think that Catherine Tate was never originally intended to be a series regular and started out as a guest on the sci-fi show for the 2006 Christmas special. In fact, it was only after Freema Agyeman left in 2007 that Tate was brought back opposite David Tennant for 2008’s fourth season and Whovian history was made.

It wasn’t initially a done deal that Tate would comeback full-time, however. On the latest installment of his podcast, Tennant revealed to Tate, his guest for the episode, that a new companion had been sketched out in case she turned the offer down. A different actress was even on back-up to play the placeholder character.

“You did this one episode and then you came back as a regular, which none of us were expecting [you] to say yes to,

New Amsterdam Season 1 Episode 14 Review: The Forsaken

It was another emotional hour of the series.

New Amsterdam Season 1 Episode 14 was another tearjerker with a touching case about a presumed veteran, Helen's emotional case with an abandoned baby, and the departure of a character who grew on us.

Initially, the case with Mustafa seemed like another case involving a veteran who suffered from suicidal tendencies and trauma, but New Amsterdam put a different spin on it that was refreshing.

Mustafa wasn't a traditional veteran. He was a combat translator who served alongside soldiers, but in most cases, he wouldn't be considered on. 

There is an ongoing effort by many to get combat translators/interpreters the recognition that they have more than earned and safe haven in the states after fighting so hard for the country.
