Steven Soderbergh's The Knick, Season1, Episode 3: "The Busy Flea" is reviewed. This literally dark episode delves into syphilis care and medical treatment, which makes the idea of time travel unappealing to both of our reviewers. Was the patient wrong to not tell her husband, or was the society of this era too hampering? How does this show compare to The Wire? And does the story in this show take steps forward only to then take steps back?
Ben Mankiewicz (Turner Classic Movies) and Robert Abele (Los Angeles Times Movie Reviews) discuss Episode 3 of The Knick.
