Trivia

While a guest on the National Public Radio program "Fresh Air," Dr. Stanley Burns (a photographic and medical historian who is a technical adviser to the TV series) said that the character of Dr. John Thackery (Clive Owen) is addicted to cocaine because Thackery is partly modeled on a real doctor from the period, William Halsted, who really was a cocaine addict. Halsted became addicted to cocaine because, Burns explained, it was common then for doctors to test new procedures and medicines on themselves, and cocaine, which was thought to be a good possible new surgical anesthetic, was not yet understood to be addictive. Dr. Christiansen, played by Matt Frewer, mentions that Halsted introduced him to the drug. See more »

What a masterpiece
21 November 2015 | by (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

Every single episode is directed by the legendary Soderbergh so with each frame you can feel the drama or tension shining through. It seems like it's all natural lighting in most scenes which makes it beautiful and authentic. And the real gem..Clive Owen. He was born to play Thackeray. The knick is an incredible series with too real medical scenes that I warn you can be hard for the weak stomachs. The second season has been just as good as the first.

This is a must watch with an excellent cast and acting. The procedures are phenomenal and awe inspiring. Do your self a favor and watch this incredible show
