The pressure is enormous and leaves its mark on the souls of most of them..
Plot: Set in downtown New York in 1900, ‘The Knick’ is centered on the Knickerbocker Hospital and the groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff who work there, pushing the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics.
John Thackery is a brilliant surgeon pioneering new methods in the field, despite his secret addiction to cocaine. He leads a team of doctors including his protégé Dr. Everett Gallinger; the young Dr. Bertie Chickering Jr. and Dr. Algernon Edwards, a promising surgeon who’s been recently thrust upon him. The lively cast of characters at the hospital also includes Cornelia Robertson, the daughter of its benefactor, Captain August Robertson; surly ambulance driver Tom Cleary; Lucy Elkins; a fresh-faced nurse from the country; the crooked hospital administrator Herman Barrow; and Sister Harriet, a nun who isn’t afraid to speak her mind.

It’s not just another medical drama
As a physician, I watched the entire House MD, Scrubs, most of ER and grey’s anatomy. As a dedicated reader, I read a lot in medicine history. I’d like to reassure everyone who is afraid of watching another regular medical drama, this show is about medical history with it’s bizarre and crazy events (which truly happened allover the course of medicine History), but in the same time it’s a perfectly crafted piece of art from attention to small details to acting, writing, camera angels, sound tract and of course directing by Soderbergh.
Dr. John Thackery is a character built on 1900s Dr. William Stewart Halsted who is considered the greatest physician of the whole Johns Hopkins group, also Throughout his professional life, he was addicted to cocaine and later to morphine, which were not illegal during that time. The beauty about Thackery character is that it’s a true character with his addiction and the predicted mood changes (even if there is some alteration, the character frame still the same, not like the case of G. House who was clearly a fictional character).
I don’t want to go in details about the technical elements of the show, but one look over Steven Soderbergh’s traffic, Erin Brockovich or even Ocean’s eleven will be more than enough to understand that you are facing a spectacular show which has more and more to offer with each new episode (no wonder it was renewed for a second season before airing the first one).
The Knick is a too much sophisticated show to be compared with other shows from the same genre and IMO it shouldn’t be compared with them at all. My advice to every one: see the first season now because if you’re a TV person you will end up watching it anyway.
Why do all the great shows get canceled?
I miss watching this. Great portrayal of the beginning stages of medicine and the healthcare system in the US.
