Critic reviews for This Is All We Are

Tune out the dialogue and simply become immersed in the show's colors and textures... it's a complete and satisfying dreamscape. But try and follow the plot, and it all comes crashing to earth.

If anything, The Knick is a relentless reminder of the abject horror in the banality of everyday living, and God, I couldn't get enough.

Brilliantly directed, beautifully acted, sometimes spottily written, 'The Knick' has been - and may continue to be - an exciting experiment.

"This Is All We Are" most certainly raised the bar on the Thackery-insanity front.

Watching the Harriet and Cleary story arc come to a gentle conclusion was the most satisfying part of this season finale.

This departure, this closing shot of the disappearing city, has me worried for my favorite doctor and the rest of them, that this might be farewell. Is this really it?
