The original pilot of New Amsterdam held my attention, but there were things that were just…off…about it. This was back in July. FOX then sent a recut version of the pilot that was pretty close to the one that aired. This one totally held my attention and made me need to watch episode number two. Because now, not only was the guy hot and mysterious, he now had family. It was revealed that he had a kid at the end of the pilot.
You find out in episode number two that the kid is Omar, the guy that owns the bar that John lives in. His kid is a 65 year old black man. I mean…Wow. Now this whole kid thing adds a new dimension to the show, but what’s going to happen? Will America like that or will the show go up in flames like so many of FOX’s shows have a tendency to do? Only time will tell…
