Storyline

Dr. Max Goodwin is brilliant, charming -- and the new medical director at America's oldest public hospital. While he's set on tearing down the bureaucracy to provide exceptional care, the doctors and staff are not so sure. They've heard this before, and no one else has delivered on those promises. Not taking "no" for an answer, Max disrupts the status quo and proves he will stop at nothing to breathe new life into this understaffed, underfunded and underappreciated hospital -- the only one in the world capable of treating Ebola patients, prisoners from Rikers Island and the president of the United States all under one roof -- and return it to the glory that put it on the map. Inspired by Bellevue in New York City. Written by NBC

Medical drama that doesn't mock Psychiatry!
28 February 2019 | by hollie_manwaring-xSee all my reviews

At the time of writing I'm at episode 12 of season 1 and I am super impressed with this show!

By far the thing that impresses me most is the seamless inclusion of the psych department, led by the very likeable Dr Frome. Many other medical shows I've seen (House, grey's anatomy, scrubs, etc) either ignore or mock this department all together apart from the odd token mental health scene/episode. It's often portrayed as a "lesser" area of medicine. New Amsterdam deals with important mental health issues within each episode with care and compassion. I want this review to remain spoiler free so as there's only one season so far I won't give example and instead encourage you to check the show out for yourself.

As well as the above, the show also hosts a strong diverse cast and maintains entertainment while tackling a bunch of contemporary issues. I really find myself rooting for the characters and I hope in the future this can be a show that goes the distance.
