Don”t call “Outlander” the feminist answer to “Game of Thrones”
As Matt Zoller Seitz notes, “This new Starz drama from Ronald D. Moore is, like his brilliant and sometimes infuriating reimagining of 'Battlestar Galactica,' defiantly its own thing: part romance-novel fantasy, part time-travel story, and part wartime drama (set across two time periods). But its core is about the emotional and cultural differences between men and women, and how their relationships have and have not changed over the centuries.” PLUS: “Outlander” lacks the moral complexity of “GoT,” this could be a Starz game-changer especially with its portrayal of sex, and it”s the most novelistic show on TV – it's really, really slow.

Steven Soderbergh”s “The Knick” is awfully satisfying, yet it doesn”t arrive as a classic TV show
As Alan Sepinwall notes, “where 'The Knick' might have seemed an indescribable wonder even a few years ago – with Soderbergh's extended hands-on involvement such a contrast to, say, Martin Scorsese directing the 'Boardwalk Empire' pilot and then disappearing back to the movie biz – it's now more notable for signaling a change in direction for Cinemax (which until now has focused on well-crafted pulp fiction like 'Strike Back' and ‘Banshee') than it is for the medium as a whole. In a time of abundant greatness, it is very good – and gorgeously shot – but it's not as revolutionary as the men and women whose work it depicts.” PLUS: “The Knick” is the rare TV show that will make you see the world in a different way, it takes advantage of all the things you can do on premium cable, it sets a new record for cable nudity, viewers finally have a reason to watch Cinemax, it”s brain food that also quickens the pulse, how accurate is “The Knick”?, and Soderbergh talks about his approach to “The Knick.”
