TV on Blu-Ray: THE KNICK (The Complete Second Season)

In New York City in 1900, The Knickerbocker Hospital operates with innovative surgeons, nurses and staff who have to overcome the limitations of current medical understanding and practice, to prevent staggeringly high mortality. Dr. John Thackery, the new leader of the surgery staff, battles his cocaine and opium addictions with his ambition for medical discovery and his reputation among his peers. Dr. Algernon Edwards, a Harvard-educated, European-trained black surgeon, must fight for respect within the all-white hospital, as well as the racially charged city. While struggling to keep the lights on, the hospital attempts to attract a wealthy clientele, without sacrificing quality care.
