The Knick season 1 & 2

Let's hope that they continue with this series because I say so. Set in a fictional hospital in New York City at the beginning of the 20th century it's a compelling and at times nasty show about the workings of a big city hospital that is visually compelling and at times appalling in what it shows. The large cast is largely unknown which helps since we don't get hung up on celebrity watching, and the only cast member who is a "name" is the wonderful Clive Owen who is terrific. All the episodes have been directed by Steven Soderbergh who is also a producer of the series. Twisty with lots of ins and outs and even I didn't see many of the plot twists that fall on us with good bumps to the head. The look of the series its sense of place is beautiful rich and full of details. This is one to see, but be warned that some of the hospital procedures are realistic grim and some times disgusting so its not for the squeamish, but hey if we've managed to look at Trump's fat ugly orange face for all these months we can certainly deal with this.
