Mercy Shows Jersey City
I hate television. Do yourself a favor, stop watching it now. Apparently, there’s a new hospital show that takes place in Jersey City called Mercy, and the other day, saw them film a bit of business. Director screams the body drops, somebody lets go a small weight of some kind from the fire escape above which lands on plastic garbage bags and two actor cops and one actor nurse kind of run from a faked parked cop car to the garbage bags. I guess they add the grit in post production. Build a set next time! Oh, I’m sure it helps the city’s coffers and it does employ people, and it was humorous watching real Jersey City Cops direct traffic away from the fake Jersey City Cops.
