dragah says 'A' - "Mercy Street" tells the story of doctors, nurses, contraband laborers and Southern loyalists in Union-occupied Alexandria, Va., during the Civil War. The plot centers on two nurses on opposing sides of the war who volunteer at the Mansion House Hospital. Characters include nurse Mary Phinney (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Jedediah Foster (Josh Radnor), James Green Sr. (Gary Cole), Dr. Alfred Summers (Peter Gerety) and Emma Green (Hannah James). Filmed on location in Virginia, the series is based on real people and real events and marks the first American drama to air on PBS in more than a decade. ////////// 'B' - Living in New York City, Dory (Alia Shawkat) comes across a flier asking for the whereabouts of Chantal Witherbottom (Claire McNulty), who she recognises and decides to make it her life mission to find her. She drags her circle of friends into her investigation including her boyfriend, Drew (John Reynolds) and friends, Elliott (John Early) and Portia (Meredith Hagner), who have a hard time understanding her interest but gradually get deeper involved in the mystery. Through their encounters, they get involved with more shady and eccentric characters. Drew finds himself attracted to the sexy but short-tempered neighbor, April (Phoebe Tyers) in his building, Portia loses her role in the TV Show where she thought she was the star and Elliott is outed as a compulsive liar and narcissist by Julian (Brandon Michael Hall), Dory's ex-boyfriend who is a writer. Dory, meanwhile, meets Chantal's neurotic ex-boyfriend Gavin (Griffin Newman), a flighty real estate woman named Lorraine (Rosie Perez), a weird cult living behind a jewelry store and a private eye named Keith (Ron Livingston), who she has an affair with, all of whom she believes to have a role in Chantal's disappearance.
