"The Knick" Teaser Trailer : If these were ranked, this would probably be at the top of the list -- the top of everyone's list, really. Steven Soderbergh's retirement from directing was put on hold to shoot all 10 episodes of the new Cinemax series starring Clive Owen as a surgeon in 1900 New York who test the limits of his practice to try to save lives. The eerie teaser trailers flash the slogan "Surgery wasn't always science," a matter of fact yet surprisingly effective tag for a show fraught with possibilities. One odd note: the creators' resume is stacked with mostly family friendly films like "Big Miracle" and "The Prince and Me." This doesn't exactly scream "edgy surgical drama." We'll be tuning in to see what Soderbergh has in store for us, but hopefully staying for more.
