THE KNICK
September 26, 2014  | By David Bianculli

Cinemax, 10:00 p.m. ET

 

Police brutality, and the fatality of a young black man at the hands of a white cop, are at the center of tonight’s episode, which sounds like it was ripped from the headlines. Except that this medical drama is set in the year 1900, so those headlines would have been about 115 years old. Sadly, though, some things never seem to change – though, on this show, relationships between several staff members at the Knickerbocker hospital will change, as a result of the violence and unease around them. Clive Owen stars.
