Review: New Amsterdam: Honor

Season 1 / Episode 4 / "Honor"
"The past & present find common ground."

So many shows rely on the sexual tension between the two main characters. Mulder and Scully, Buffy & Angel, countless of couples over the years. Thankfully New Amsterdam is throwing that ideal to the wind. This does raise the question; could the show continue if John finds his true love?

Again with a beautiful mix of John's past and present we wade through a story of honour and how some things never change as the years pass. This complex mix of revealing John's past, witnessing a crime be solved and see Sara give in to John's charms, is brought to the screen almost effortlessly.

One of the strongest points of New Amsterdam is their ability to bring the past to life and still relate that to the present. This show becomes more captivating as the weeks go by. True excellence.
