The Knick

Unknown-3Credit: Cinemax

So Clive Owen is doing a TV series on Cinemax and every episode is directed (and filmed and edited) by Steven Soderbergh. That sounds like a pretty big deal, right? Evidently it is based on the number of reviews that I’ve linked to below.

Is The Knick any good? Does it mark the start of the transformation of television from a writer’s to a director’s medium? Will you ever get used to Clive Owen’s mustache? You can start deciding for yourself when it premiers on August 8.
