On Friday night, Cinemax premiered its “gripping” period medical drama, The Knick, Steven Soderbergh’s first television series. The show, set at the turn of the 20th century, stars Clive Owen as Dr. John W. Thackery, an “antihero physician who knows how to heal everyone but himself.” In case you missed that premiere, you can stream the show’s first episode for free on YouTube.
