Steven Soderbergh's Cinemax series The Knick looks so freakin' good! I've gone through some strange phases in my life; at one point I studied the history of medicine on and off for a few years just for the hell of it. It just fascinated me, and I always thought something like that would make for a great movie. A TV show by Soderbergh that stars Clive Owen is an even better idea though. A new spot has been released and it gives off a very intense vibe.
Set in downtown New York in 1900, the ten-episode season centers on Knickerbocker Hospital and the groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff, who push the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics.
The series is set to premiere on Cinemax on August 8th.
