The Knick (Since 8-8-2014 , Season: 2 - Cinemax)
A very distinctive show that mixes costume drama with modern electronic music, and that way makes the old fashioned medicine profession very fresh. Clive Owen plays a high functioning addict who happens to be one of the finest surgeons in his field, and through him we learn about the happenings in an early twentieth century hospital in New York
After The Soprano’s, Edie Falco pledged to stay far away from anything mob related. Luckily, she did. As a pill-popping nurse that is, battling her addiction and the fights that need to be fought being a member of a middle class family. Drama and comedy are a tough mix to work out; Nurse Jackie brilliantly succeeds in keeping the genres well balanced. Falco’s character, Jackie, is an outstanding portrait of a harsh, deceptive and fearful person – flanked by the lovely Zoey (Merrit Weve) the chemistry between all actors is a delight. The show’s been thrown an awful lot of prices and awards, and rightfully so. Nurse Jackie is fun, unpredictable, and best of all, shows what a great actress Edie Falco is.
