News & Interviews for The Knick: Season 2
It's easy to treat the past as a cozy prequel to the present; The Knick treats it as a ghost story. I don't know if that makes for more honest history, but it makes for amazing television.
Much like David Milch did with Deadwood, Soderbergh proves that period television need not be mere history lesson. In so many ways, The Knick feels like one of the most vital, current shows on the air.
The Knick isn't simply a lush costume drama, a gory medical history, or a lesson in social studies. It inspires true passion.
It offers the kind of gripping trip to a time and place - New York in 1901 - that can be both stunningly beautiful and unnervingly ugly.
Rarely does one feel so distinctly immersed in an area known to no longer exist, yet is brought to life with such utter legitimacy. Credit goes to everyone in the production staff... it's all tied together by Soderbergh doing what [he] does best.
