New Amsterdam (or Highlander-Lite) : New US telly show

Anyone checked this new FOX telly show yet?

Basically it's Highlander but without the swordplay, bad accents, decapitations & Queen soundtrack. (Yeah!, basically the Good bits! )

NY detective is immortal & can only become mortal when he meets "The ONE!"

I wont reveal who/what "The One" is, but to say it's a moment, is an understatement.

So far, it's been ok. Well shot, quirky, the lead actor is good & the flashbacks are interesting.

I watched half of the first episode and just thought it was a pointless premise and dull so gave up!

I've watched the first one and have the second ready to go, but I can't say it's grabbed me too much so far.

I've seen the first 2 and with the current sparse schedule thought it was interesting enough to keep watching for a while.

No evidence of that from what I could find. It is however getting beaten by Lost in the ratings by quite a margin.

It's not bad (I'd say it's better than Moonlight), I'm about to watch the third ep and it'll do until the likes of Pushing Daisies & Reaper come back.

Yeah I have to agree, after her disappointing glimpse in the 1st episode, she's grown on me a lot & is very attractive with a gorgeous smile.
