The Knick S1 & S2

EP_Box Sets_The Knick_Primary

FROM WEDNESDAY 18 SEPTEMBER 7.30PM Channel 009

As upscale care in New York shifts from urban locales in the early 1900s, Knickerbocker Hospital remains in the city to serve a mostly poor, immigrant population. Undeterred by high mortality from sepsis in a pre-antibiotics era, chief surgeon John Thackery pushes medicine's boundaries, pioneering procedures despite his painful past and severe cocaine addiction. Co-executive produced by Steven Soderbergh, The Knick is a sometimes-graphic drama, revealing racism and corruption while desperate people became operating-room guinea pigs.


“The Knick is the most detailed show on TV, but by grounding the characters in timeless themes--addiction, class, race, desire, competition--the show transcends its undeniable craftsmanship to become something even greater, something uniquely incredible in today’s TV world. In arguably the best year of television to date, it still stands out.” – RogerEbert.com

“The Knick is a sublimely addictive ride for which viewers will want to scrub up.” – Denver Post

“The Knick isn't simply a lush costume drama, a gory medical history, or a lesson in social studies. It inspires true passion.” – Philadelphia Inquirer

Starring Clive Owen (Closer), André Holland (Castle Rock), Jeremy Bobb (Russian Doll), Juliet Rylance (American Gothic), Eve Hewson (Robin Hood), and Michael Angarano (This Is Us).
