    Season premiere was surprisingly slow and the gimmick of older people recognizing the star as an acquaintance from long ago was already strained.

    The main character is a bit boring. I just can't get used to his son being 30 years older than him. I just couldn't get into the show. It moved at a really slow pace.

    Not that bad a show - not that good either, but about a hundred times more watchable than the dreadful Canterbury's Law.

  1. New Amsterdam is smart and far more original than most of the new series this season, which warrants it becoming a Monday habit.

    The whole enterprise is very shoddy and predictable, and I can’t imagine that anyone involved did this for anything but a paycheck.

    The debuting metaphysical cop drama comes on like a randy high schooler, dumping too much backstory too fast. [7 Mar 2008, p.88]
