From the Couch

From the Couch – Mercy Street Season 1


A breakout historical drama last winter, Mercy Street returns to PBS on January 22nd for a second season.  We have the first season in our TV series collection!

Taking place at the Mansion House Hospital in the Union occupied city of Alexandria, Virginia during the early days of the Civil War, Mercy Street follows the experiences of those on both sides of the conflict, including nurse Mary Phinney, surgeon Jedidiah Foster, and the wealthy Green family.  Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Josh Radnor, Gary Cole, McKinley Belcher III, and a varied cast of excellent actors, this is definitely a suggested series for those interested in the American Civil War or medical dramas.
