Review: New Amsterdam: Golden Boy

Season 1 / Episode 2 / "Golden Boy"
"Excellent, a close to flawless drama."

The beauty of New Amsterdam is the endless opportunities in which the writers have. Normally writers are restricted to a single lifetime of a character - or the first quarter. With John they have so many lifetimes to explore. In a clever twist Omar is relieved to be John's son. We're also shown that he has had a daughter many years ago.

People enjoy reliving the past and New Amsterdam delivers a window into a world past. This helps us understand John's burning desirer to become mortal. Watching his love ones around him grow old and die is a heavy burden.

Completely swept up in the story and characters you forget you're watching a work of fiction. Beautiful storytelling, near flawless, New Amsterdam is fast becoming one of my favourite shows this year.
