With the Season 2 premiere of The Knick only a few weeks away, now's the perfect time to take a look behind the curtain of the Cinemax original series from director Steven Soderbergh.

The first season of the 1900s drama featured a whole lot of surgeries and not a lot of local anesthetic. Also, cocaine was used in more ways than one and there was a ward modeled after an insane asylum's cafeteria.

Interest sufficiently piqued? Watch the three behind-the-curtain videos below (Warning: "Inside the Body Shop" is not for the squeamish) and keep scrolling for a second-season tease.

The wait is almost over, The Knick returns Friday, October 16, only on Cinemax.
