Great news! Cinemax has decided to put the full pilot of The Knick , directed by Steven Soderbergh (Magic Mike, Oceans 11/12/13, Solaris, Traffic) on Youtube. And it’s not even geoblocked! Haven’t heard of the Knick? It’s stars Clive Owen and takes place at New York’s Knickerbocker Hospital at the turn of the 20th century. Which is well before “modern medicine”. In fact it’s sort of the reason why we have modern medicine at all. You wouldn’t believe the things they used to do to people. It’s already been picked up for a second season, so check this out! Just not with children in the room. Or while you’re eating.
Oh, and bonus Canadian points as it also stars Edmonton’s own Eric Johnson!
