I think I'm suffering time warp overload. I'll watch it at least twice more...but no...I'm not missin' Lost...Broth'r!

All great ideas were crazy before they were brilliant. Alexander Bell thought he could talk over copper wires, and even worse, Marconi thought he could send messages through thin air! When David Sarnoff wanted to launch the first radio network (now NBC), one investor ridiculed him by asking, "Who would pay to send a message to no one in particular?" Jules Verne thought people might one day travel under the ocean or, even more ridiculous, fly in outer space. How crazy was that!? ~~From Success May Require Weirdness

TV Gal from zap2it says the second episode is better than the first. :

I think the series could actually turn out to be a fairly decent show.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau stars as New York detective John Amsterdam.
Heís a 400-year-old man who will remain immortal until he finds his one
true love. Iím almost tempted to tell you to skip this week and tune in
next week when the show makes a marked improvement.

The premiere features laughably cheesy flashbacks to when John first
was cursed by Native Americans. But by the second episode, the show
begins to give viewers an idea of how each episode will play out. There
will be the crime in the present day that John and his partner Eva
Marquez (Zuleikha Robinson) have to solve and the show will flashback
to some other period of Johnís life in New York City.

Heíll also spend time chatting with bar keeper Omar (Stephen
McKinley Henderson), the only man who knows his secret, and tracking
down his possible soul mate Dr. Sara Dillane (Alexie Gilmore). Thereís
a nifty reveal about Omar in the second episode that makes sense and
makes the series instantly more appealing.

Thereís a lot familiar here Ė from Highlander to Angel
Ė so the show doesnít get a lot of points for originality. But Danish
actor Coster-Waldau brings the right amount of brooding charm to the
role and Johnís back-story has the potential to be interesting.
Warning: Donít try to apply much logic to the show. It wonít hold up.

I certainly donít love New Amsterdam. But
itís much better than I originally thought it was going to be. Three
stars. After you watch the show, let me know what you think.

Yep,I watched the first and am halfway thru the 2nd. I'm liking it...altho I can't quite warm up to the lead actor. Just something "blah" about him. Liked the reveal about Omar. :)

At first I thought that Alexie Gilmore, the doctor, was rather "blah" too, but now I'm beginning to rethink that....the dimples, the eyes, the long legs... :dead: :randy:

They should have cast Valerie Cruz from The Dresden Files in that role........

Meanwhile, Harry Dresden (Paul Blackthorne) is now playing Brooke Shield's husband on Lipstick Jungle. affraid
