Cinemascope: The Knick (Season 1)

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2014.

Plot line: 
Set in downtown New York in 1900 - The Knick is a groundbreaking new scripted drama from Oscar® and Emmy®-winning director Steven Soderbergh starring Oscar® nominee Clive Owen, who also received a Golden Globe nomination for this series. The Knick centers on the Knickerbocker Hospital (dubbed The Knick), which faces a major upheaval due to poor finances and an exodus of wealthy patients. The one remaining star is Dr. Thackery (played by Clive Owen) who along with the hospital staff of surgeons, nurses and other personnel must struggle to keep both themselves and the hospital going.

I binge watched this series over a couple of days. It is so good. If you are fan of historical fiction, period pieces, or medical dramas, you'll love this one too. The issues addressed are really diverse, and I  love everything about it.

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a TV series worth watching.
