TV show description:
A period drama, this TV show is set in downtown New York City in 1900. It revolves around the Knickerbocker Hospital and the groundbreaking surgeons, nurses, and staff who work there. They push the boundaries of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics.

A brilliant surgeon, Doctor John Thackery (Clive Owen) is pioneering new methods in the field, despite nursing his secret and severe addiction to cocaine. He leads a team of physicians that include his protégé Doctor Everett Gallinger (Eric Johnson); young Doctor Bertie Chickering Jr. (Micahel Angarano); and Doctor Algernon Edwards (André Holland), a promising surgeon of color who’s been recently thrust upon him.

Others at the hospital include benefactor Captain August Robertson and his daughter Cornelia (Juliet Rylance); surly ambulance driver Tom Cleary (Chris Sullivan); fresh-faced nurse from the country Lucy Elkins (Eve Hewson); crooked hospital administrator Herman Barrow (Jeremy Bobb); and Sister Harriet (Cara Seymour), a nun who isn’t afraid to speak her mind.

There’s also health inspector Jacob Speight (David Fierro), a coarse man who’s not above taking a bribe to steer a patient to a particular hospital.

It’s a very interesting show. Amazing to see how fat medicine has come. It amazes me how oblivious they were to infection control. It looks like the Black Plague is about to show it’s face ……!!!

This is an awesome show. Everything is done incredibly well, including the acting, the realism of the times, the camera work, the plots, the characters, etc etc . I wish all shows on TV could be this interesting. Please keep this on the air. We are starved for good entertainment and intellectual stimulation.

I love the series. I hope it does not get cancelled, because it does show how far medicine had come. Even though tough to see. I now know why my great grandmother didn’t survive a simple appendectomy. It does give insight to our lives before. Great move Cinemax .

One of the best cast and written shows on TV. Don’t know about historical accuracy but entertaining plot and characters.

The first episode was excellent! I love shows that show how soft we are in todays times. They performed a cesarian section in the first episode. The mother bled to death and the child died. It was hardcore back then. The black doctor knows more than half of the white ones and can not get a break. He has to struggle to prove himself. Meanwhile the head physician has a drug problem. i look forward to more episodes.

I LOOK FORWARD TO THE REST OF THE SEASON. I WAS TOTALLY ENTERTAINED. CLIVE OWEN IS FABULOUS AS USUAL, AND THE SUPPORTING CAST IS SUPERB. BASED ON THE FIRST EPISODE, I SAY SEASON TWO IS A GIVEN.
