New Amsterdam - Pilot television review

New Amsterdam offers a pretty straightforward premise. With the arrival of a new medical director of the United States’ oldest public hospital things begin to change. Dr. Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) shows up with a vision to scale back the medical bureaucracy and focus on simply helping patients. A novel approach in the current climate. Goodwin’s outlook is colored by a mix of a midlife crisis, impending fatherhood, and a recent cancer diagnosis. Given the chance at his dream job, basically he’s got nothing to lose except further alienating the mother of his child to be and driving the doctors at the hospital crazy.

A Million Little Things - Pilot television review

I have one major complaint about the “Pilot” episode of A Million Little Things, something which I believe my fester and eventually kill my interest in the show, but there is actually quite a bit of good to talk about first. The set-up involves two friends in a small circle both attempting suicide on the same day. One dies (Ron Livingston), and the other (Romany Malco), after learning of his friend’s death, chooses to remain in the land of the living. During the lead up to the funeral, we introduced to the group which includes the departed man’s wife Sopie (Lizzy Greene), breast cancer survivor and womanizer Gary (James Roday), the depressed Rome (Malco), and the unemployed former rocker turn music teacher Eddie (David Giuntoli). Rounding out the cast are the men’s signigant others (Christina Marie Moses, Grace Park, and Allison Miller).
