Mercy: The Complete Series *review*

Mercy: The Complete Series
- information taken from the website

From the co-executive producer of Friday Night Lights comes the intense and heartfelt drama Mercy. Nurse Veronica Flanagan Callahan (Taylor Schilling, Dark Matter) has recently returned to her hospital job after a volatile tour in Iraq, and knows more about medicine than all of the residents combined. In order to navigate the domestic landmines of her personal and professional worlds, she’ll need the camaraderie of her fellow nurses Sonia Jimenez (Jaime Lee Kirchner, Rescue Me) and Chloe Payne (Michelle Trachtenberg, Gossip Girl).

This 5-disc set contains all 22 episodes presented uninterrupted in Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound and includes a stellar ensemble cast featuring James Tupper (Men in Trees), Diego Klattenhoff (Supernatural), Guillermo Diaz (Weeds), James Le Gros (Ally McBeal) and a guest appearance by James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek). Bold, realistic and instantly gripping, Mercy is unlike any depiction of the medical community you have seen before.

Starring: Taylor Schilling, Michelle Trachtenberg, Jamie Lee Kirchner

I had never seen Mercy before the series arrived at my home but I enjoyed it. It reminded me of Gray's Anatomy and ER a bit but since I liked those shows a lot I didn't mind. I actually think it is a bit of a shame it won't be carrying on for another season. I thought the acting was excellent and I especially enjoyed the Veronica character. Mercy was an all-around entertaining show.

I love watching TV shows on DVD because I never miss anything! Watching Mercy: the Complete Series was a great way to relax.

Thanks so much to NBC/Universal for sending me a review copy of this series.

I liked this show too, although it seemed to get moved all over the tv schedule so I was never quite sure when it was on. And there's only one series? Bummer.
