Critic reviews for There Are Rules
[Cleary and Harriet are] gonna be roommate and he's gonna hang a curtain up to afford her some privacy and make any other arrangement she needs. Oh, to be a fly on that wall. Or an executive producer on that spin-off show.
Of all the varying ways women on The Knick deal with their daily oppression, only one is truly blazing her own path. Eleanor Gallinger.
Of all the characters we are supposed to marvel at for their scientific brilliance and financial acumen, [Mr. Cleary and Sister Harriet] are the two that leave the strongest impression.
That mix of the clinical and the messy - as we've said time and time and time again, ad nauseum, really - is what makes 'The Knick.'
The consequences of inquisitiveness and desperation were on display throughout the episode. In its poignant centerpiece, Chickering and Edwards tried to save Chickering's cancer-ridden mother.
Even if the at-times unbelievable density of The Knick's second season has felt thus far like no accident, it's a welcome change to see Steven Soderbergh digging his directorial heels deeper into fewer subplots in this week's "There Are Rules."
