I'm generally not into hospital dramas all that much. The Knick is so much more than a hospital drama. It's about gender, sex, race, religion, income inequality and coincidentally tells the story behind the beginnings of modern surgical methods. The acting is top notch and Steven Soderbergh directed all of the episodes himself so there is a high consistency in tone and look. (There's a scene with a (fake) blood transfusion seen from the point of view of the donor. Soderbergh was so dedicated to getting the angle exactly how he wanted it that it's his arm in the shot.) Highly recommended. ETA one caveat. The show has very graphic depictions of surgery. Edited June 5, 2016 by xaxat 5 Link to comment
