Mercy Street

Critics Consensus

Mercy Street's intriguing setting and talented cast can't compensate for the overall lack of excitement in a period drama that's traditional to a fault.

    Honestly, it started allow but the drama really picked up in the last few episodes. Nicely written characters.
  • Mar 13, 2017
    Please please please do another season!!! Such an intelligently done show, but also so engaging. I love the characters and the story - great acting.
  • Feb 07, 2017
    love this show! Great Cast, great production value
  • Jan 31, 2017
    In authentic and historical inaccuracies. Example an officer brags about his affluence including being trained as a physician at Princeton. Princeton University was The College of New Jersey until it was renamed Princeton in 1896. The College of New Jersey was a theological school and did not offer degrees in the sciences until long after the civil war. It was one of a handful of colleges in civil war era and not particularly attended by the affluent.

    A wonderful show with great show with good acting.
  • Mar 13, 2016
    Love it. It's PBS at its usual best.
  • Mar 04, 2016
    Much more even-handed than most entertainment set in that period. The cast is very compelling and the writing is excellent. The costumes are understated, but highly appropriate.
  • Feb 22, 2016
    My wife and I loved Mercy Stree! Does a great job of of blending the human interest of a dramatic hospital drama with the tensions of the Civil War and its underlying moral issue of slavery. Bring it back with more episodes, PBS!
  • Feb 21, 2016
    This is an incredibly well-done series. Authenticity is first rate, and the acting is spot-on!
  • Feb 20, 2016
    It's historical, the actors play interesting characters, in short it is an entertaining episode. They do not resort to gruesome murders or soft porn to create a plot. So extra credit for that.
