CHICAGO – Cinemax’s ominous new series “The Knick” is a hospital drama that’s very much in the voice of its director, Steven Soderbergh. Set in New York City at the turn of the 20th century, the series presents the medical world as it inches closer and closer to modernity, while making contemporary parallels to the desperate hustle by surgery room clients and their doctors alike regarding treatment of the human body. What has changed in the politics of medicine? What hasn’t?

HollywoodChicago.com Hookup: VIP TV Prize Pack For ‘In Plain Sight’ on USA Network With Mary McCormackSubmitted by HollywoodChicago.com on April 19, 2011 - 4:09pm
CHICAGO – In this edition of HollywoodChicago.com Hookup: TV, we have one VIP TV prize pack up for grabs to USA Network’s “In Plain Sight” starring Mary McCormack!
Television Rating: 3.5/5.0
CHICAGO – USA Network’s “In Plain Sight” was one of the best new shows of 2008, another hit for the highest-rated network on cable, USA. The first-year series still needs to iron out a few things to truly live up its potential but the excellent Mary McCormack continues to rock on one of the few must-see basic cable shows this season.
DVD Rating: 3.5/5.0
CHICAGO – “In Plain Sight” may not get the buzz or press of other cable hits like “Burn Notice” or “The Closer” and the show still needs some ironing out to truly live up to its potential but I watched every episode of this USA Network action drama when it aired and anxiously look forward to the new season (which we’ll review here on or just before its April 19th premiere) for one reason, Mary McCormack.
