Amsterdamned

Ok, I do quite enjoy New Amsterdam, and am awaiting FOX's unceremonious cancellation of it...

But something about it bugs me.

For those who don't know, it's the story of a man who 400 years ago saved a Native American girl from an attack, but was run through with a sword from her attacker. In gratitude for saving the girl, her tribe gifted our hero with eternal life, until he finds the one (Insert Zathras jokes here), and their souls become one, and he shall be mortal once more. Blah blah blah...

Anyways, he believes he's found the girl, and finds out she's married. That's all fine and good, a decent twist, and a good roadblock to throw in his way, classic romantic storytelling. Fine.

They start to get to know each other, and eventually they start sleeping together anyways. Ok, sure, her and her husband are working on divorce proceedings, but still, sleeping with a married woman, even if it's on the way out, just really bugs me, and broke a lot of empathy I may have had with John Amsterdam.

Not to mention, what was the point of having her be married, if it's not going to stop them, even for an episode, from knocking boots, and having her split up? Heck, the husband appeared for all of five seconds. They could have miled that a LITTLE longer. The marriage served no real point other than to make me uncomfortable with the protagonist. And a quick cliffhanger that was promptly dropped.
