Rush (Where’s My Mind, You Spin Me Around, Because I Got High, Get Lucky)

Starring: Tom Ellis, Larenz Tate, Sarah Habel, Rick Gonzalez, Erica Cerra, Harry Hamlin, Rachel Nichols, Odette Annable

With ratings being ever so low (hovering at around 1.6 million viewers, as opposed to the usual 3-4 million for a USA show- and that would be for a show that is more than 1 season!), it seems like the experiment that is Rush on USA Network may be over after it’s freshman run of 12 episodes. But that doesn’t mean I’m giving up, and regardless if the show is cancelled after season 1 or not, I still commend and applaud the channel for taking some risks in trying to change up the genres of their shows, just to try to gain more viewers, and restore the network to the glory days in terms of cable ratings. So if you were a new viewer, would I encourage you to watch Rush, the show that deals with an egocentric concierge doctor for the rich and famous, who treats clients who are discreet? Or is this show a bypass? I would encourage you actually (the show takes a few episodes to find its feet), as Rush (Tom Ellis) is a very interesting person, it’s as simple as that.

It’s been about a couple of weeks or so since I last posted (about Robin Williams’ last show), and in between that time I have had time to think about this next series. We took a break for TV Thursdays one week, and in the other week, my brother Jon wrote a guest post about his favourite 15 shows of 2014, and what he is planning to watch this coming 2014/2015 broadcast TV season. So, what is the topic for today?
