A look at the professional and personal lives of the staff at New York's Knickerbocker Hospital during the early part of the twentieth century, where they try to maintain their reputation for quality care while struggling to keep the doors open.
Much like David Milch did with Deadwood, Soderbergh proves that period television need not be mere history lesson. In so many ways, The Knick feels like one of the most vital, current shows on the air.
The Knick comes back for its second season bigger and better than ever, featuring several captivating storylines, outstanding production values, and a terrific ensemble, all entwined in a compelling and fascinating medical drama.
Rarely does one feel so distinctly immersed in an area known to no longer exist, yet is brought to life with such utter legitimacy. Credit goes to everyone in the production staff... it's all tied together by Soderbergh doing what [he] does best.
