A new season begins with much more challenges and excitement that follows the daily activity and struggle of doctors and patients in the hospital of Knickerbocker, where doctors race with time, in order to save the lives of people, while dealing with their personal problems. Season two begins with Dr. Edward prepares for being the chef of surgeons during the absence of Dr. Thackery.
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.
