Binge more television shows is a New Year’s resolution that some of you probably had, but with network TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hulu, what shows should you watch?
One show that is very underrated and less known is the medical drama “New Amsterdam,” a show midway through its first season at 10 p.m. on NBC on Wednesdays.

It takes place in the fictional “New Amsterdam” hospital in New York City, based off of Bellevue Hospital. It stars Ryan Eggold as Dr. Max Goodwin, the new medical director and chief of medicine who also has a wife with a child on the way.

In the show’s pilot, he fires everyone in the cardiac surgical department because of their performance and unfair billing rates. He wants to rebuild and change the hospital; he doesn’t think the system is too big to change, unlike the rest of the doctors.
He just wants them to be doctors again and get over the horrifying developments that have happened to them and the profession they chose.
But Max has one big problem: He has a huge secret, which could be terminal to him, his career and more importantly, his plans for “New Amsterdam.” What is it? Well, watch the show and find out.

Now, this show may just sound like another run of the mill, not really good, medical drama as is usually the case nowadays (The Good Doctor, The Resident, etc.) but this show will make you laugh. It will make you cry. It will make you feel warm and fuzzy as well as cold and heavy-hearted. It is worth a chance, and I swear, it’s really better than other options on our televisions.

It is one of the latest, rare shows that has heart and doesn’t feel robotic and choppy as some shows do like “I Feel Bad” on NBC which was canceled after mediocre fan and critic reviews. “My Hero Academia” among numerous bad and poor anime shows with poor reviews and gained little to no popularity, or even the “Office,” one of the greatest comedies of all time, by the end in Seasons 7, 8 and 9 felt robotic and choppy while also garnering poor reviews.

From mostly amazing shows (“The Office”), to the terrible (“My Hero Academia” and “I Feel Bad”), at one point or another, they all had very weak seasons. But, “New Amsterdam” hasn’t been that way yet, at all. It has been one of the best new shows of the year, and I truly encourage you to watch it.

Trust me, it will warm your heart.
