The above blog title pretty much sums up the new (to be ironically short-lived?) FOX series New Amsterdam. The main character John Amsterdam is Dutch, currently a New York City homicide detective, formerly a lawyer, formerly a furniture maker, etc. So it's essentially Highlander without the swordplay, although being stabbed by a sword figures into the back story.
Here's the pilot episode:
In the second episode, we find out that unlike the sterile immortals of the Highlander films/TV series/etc., John Amsterdam can have children - and he actively spends time with them as they age. Here's the second episode, entitled "Golden Boy":
The present-time story lines serve to tangentially set off the back story flashbacks, but the connections aren't as effective as The Show about Everything (ABC's Lost). The crime-of-the-week story lines are a bit recycled from better cop shows, so the show is essentially built on the flashbacks and main story arc (which is told mainly through the flashbacks). Having elf-length life is an intriguing concept in much the same field as the myriad ways of time travel, so I'll try to catch the next episode on Hulu.
