Watch: ‘The Knick’ Premiere for Free Online

If you missed the premiere of “The Knick” on Friday, here’s your chance to take a free bloody trip back to the 1900s.

Cinemax has put the pilot up on YouTube. Directed by Steven Soderbergh and starring Clive Owen as a doctor at New York’s Knickerbocker Hospital during the early 20th century, the grisly medical drama is not for the faint of heart. There’s also a full frontal nude scene a mere 20 seconds into the first episode.

“Yes, the barbaric nature of medicine — evolving though it was — remains grisly stuff, but once that point’s made (and made again), it’s tough to see what breakthroughs ‘The Knick’ has left to offer,” Variety’s Brian Lowry wrote in his review.

This practice has become the norm with cable show premieres. Most recently, Starz’s “Outlander,” HBO’s “The Leftovers” and Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful” pilots were all posted online for free by the respective network.

“The Knick” airs Fridays on Cinemax.
