Default The Knick (Cinemax TV Series)

New Steven Soderbergh series debuted on Friday night.

I was really impressed. The camera work was awesome. The score was interesting too - same composer as the film Drive.

Looking forward to this new show.

Did anyone else check it out?

Looks good from the trailers that I've seen and I intended on watching it. But I've been watching the Orioles every night and it completely slipped my mind. I'll catch it on demand sometime this week. Glad to hear it's good.

There are some "been there done that aspects" about it. IE - Clive Owen as the drug addicted anti-hero doctor. However, it was a very good pilot episode and I expect things to get more and more interesting as the world of the show expands and the viewer gets to know more and more characters.

I liked the the first episode. Probably going to have to find its niche. It was a fairly bloody show and that turns off many people but not me.

It was a little graphic but not too bad - IMO. My wife hates gore but wasn't really bothered by the 1st epsiode.

It's already been renewed for season 2 and is getting a lot of good pub. Hopefully people watch it. I think most folks get Cinemax with their HBO subscription, so hopefully access to the show is not an issue.

Ratings were not good. 350K watched the premier. HBO reaired it the next night and got 1.7 million, which is solid.

I wonder if the show picks up traction from the HBO showing? I wonder if HBO continues to reair it on Saturday? Regardsless- it has already been granted a 2nd season.

Orioles were rained out last night so I had time to catch the premiere episode. Good solid start so let's hope that builds from there.

I can understand the low ratings on Cinemax since it's pretty much been the red headed step child to HBO. Also I haven't been able to get into any of the Cinemax series so far. Good idea reairing it on HBO as that should help get some viewers to Cinemax.

Just discovered that the nurse who shoots up Clive Owen's character's dick with coke is Bono's daughter Eve Hewson.

Episode 2 was solid. I'm really enjoying this show. My wife is obsessed with it.

Here's an article abut the actually doctor on which Owen's character is based....
