New Amsterdam

New Amsterdam is a fantasy flavored drama, the story of a man who can not die until he finds his one true love. After four centuries, that love may finally be near and - for the first time - this New York City homicide detective faces mortality. Think Beauty & the Beast in reverse.

New Amsterdam was created and directed by Lasse Hallstrom who brought us the cinematic hits Chocolat, My Life as a Dog and Cider House Rules. The idea here is that this detective is a far more effective murder investigator because he's lived in The City for some 400 years (back when it was known as New Amsterdam, natch). You see, he knows the nooks and crannies where criminals traditionally hide out. But that doesn't really make a lot of sense and how people will react to CSI sci-fi is anyone's guess.

There are interesting twist and turns but on the whole this production doesn't strike me as being any better or worse - or even markedly different - than the dozens of other crime scene investigation shows around the dial.

There was a better than normal montage that closes episode one and I like the flashbacks to the 1940s that take on a more prominent role in episode 2, they offer the promise of some Lost-like sunplots. Still, overall there's too little intrigue or amazement to be had. Dexter it's not.

Let's see, Fox is essentially remaking The Invaders as The Sarah Connor Chronicles and The Immortal as New Amsterdam (and had great success turning The New People into Lost). Do I sense a trend here?

Originally scheduled for fall, don't look for this one to be around long before being shipped off to TV Vallhallah.

New Amsterdam debuts on FOX Tuesday March 4th at 9:00 EST/PT following American Idol. Here's the trailer:
