Critic reviews for Williams and Walker
Bertie's first romp with Genevieve seems downright chaste, what with the adorable top hat strip tease followed by Bertie hemming and hawing over the fact that appearing naked before the woman he wants to have sex with might seem "too forward."
The unleashing of Lucy's id is just one of the highly enjoyable events of this overstuffed episode, "Williams and Walker" - perhaps the best of the season so far.
I'm starting to suspect that a similar but sneakier ploy is going on within The Knick.
Business as usual. That's fine, but shows - especially emotionally remote shows like 'The Knick' - every now and then need to take a break from slow and steady world building and blow things up real good.
The magnificent scope of the charity ball is expertly captured by one long, seamless tracking shot expertly employed by Soderbergh. It allows us to take notice of nearly all of the main characters.
Now, Edwards might be down, but I wouldn't discount him. He's got enough scientific chops to figure out what went wrong and why. But he just might have to conduct this investigation out of another hospital sooner than he'd thought.
