Taking place in New York City at the turn of the 20th Century, The Knick tells of the Knickerbocker Hospital, which holds some of the greatest medical minds in the city and of the times. After his mentor dies, Dr. John Thackery (Clive Owen, King Arthur, Sin City) becomes the newly minted Chief of Surgery. Utilizing and often inventing new innovative techniques in surgical procedures, Dr. Thackery has many hurdles to overcome in progressing forward from the more barbaric medical practices which hold strong still – not to mention Thackery’s own often debilitating addictions to cocaine and opium. In a blossoming yet brutal metropolis such as New York City in the year 1900, where crime is rampant and disease and sickness spread like wildfire, the Knick proves that brighter days are ahead, if only it could keep its own lights on.
