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.

Please don’t cancel the show…… I am in the medical field. I love seeing the how different procedures were performed back in that era.

I think the show is brilliantly acted and filmed. This story needs to be told. It depicts the beginning of modern medicine and how doctors learned. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it!

The Knick has to be continue it’s an incredible show about medical practices in 1900’s setting in New York, it seems so realistic and brazen taken on a difficult subject matter medicine. I just can’t see this series ending on such a note without it being resolved in so many ways. Taking on all types of issues which include drug addiction, abortion, racism and corruption. There’s just an enormous amount of drama packed into this show with much to be seen. I’m sure the actors would find it difficult to stay in the series for any extended time due to other commitments whether it’s movie or stage. Well if anything there will be a season two at the very least and maybe then they’ll end the series in a graceful way.

I concur with all positive remarks. Hopefully this excellent show is now underway with filming of next series. Too few good dramas on telly these days and far too much reality crap !! Of course, much cheaper to produce, leaving actors, writers, directors and crews with a shortage of work. Shameful !!

I love this show and would love there to be another season – so many story lines need to be continued. It is so fascinating to delve into the problems affecting the era in which it is set. Long may it continue as Clive Owen is at his best and the cast are excellent!!!!!
