New Amsterdam's flu epidemic shelved

Actor Mark Blum dies from the Coronavirus

There’s always one episode of a TV show that needs to be pulled anytime there’s a big news story in the world. Due to COVID-19, it’s an episode of New Amsterdam that won’t go to air. The hospital-focused show had an episode filmed about a flu pandemic in New York. It was originally scheduled to air in April.

New Amsterdam Episode Pulled Due To Flu

Remember how much we all loved Master of None? A big reason for that was series writer/producer Alan Yang who has since gone on to produce the Apple TV+ show Little America (it’s very good) and now has his first feature film. Tigertail debuts on April 9.


Seth Macfarlane, like many of us, is possibly suffering from self-isolation blues and has taken the time to produce a short audio clip with Family Guy characters Brian and Stewie recording a podcast together. It only runs about 4 mins.

Also returning to the BBC:


If you’re looking for a show to binge, Emily van der Werff at Vox recommends taking another go at all 146 episodes of New Girl. This is something I thoroughly endorse. Episodes are streaming in the US on Netflix. Here in Australia you can find it at SBS On Demand.

New Girl Christmas.

New York character actor Mark Blum has died at the age of 69 from Coronavirus-related issues. You’ve seen Blum in countless movies and TV shows over the years. I, coincidentally, was just reading about Blum a few days ago when I saw him appear in a season one episode of The Good Wife. I probably know him best as playing Union Bob on 30 episodes of Mozart in The Jungle.
