Critic Reviews for Mercy: Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (15)

This is a creation with spunk and spine. Mercy is marvelous television.

Daily Telegraph

Looking for a show to stave off ER withdrawal? Have Mercy; it's (you'll pardon the expression) strong medicine.

Washington Post
Top Critic

Any effective moments are outweighed by thumpingly obvious sentimentality, hospital stereotypes, and undignified "girl talk."

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic
