    Rush is a pretty good pilot that could turn into an excellent addition to USA's lineup of complicated character dramas.

    Writer/director Jonathan Levine created Rush and he brings the show a confidence that new dramas are often lacking. Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Basically, Rush is USA’s answer to “House,” albeit with a younger, hotter doctor. Unlike “Satisfaction,” Rush doesn’t seem overly serialized, which keeps it in line with traditional USA series, only this one is more gray-sky than blue-sky programming.

  • Alan Sepinwall

    It's as deeply cynical as its doctor anti-hero, but like Rush, it's aware of the path it's on and doesn't have the pretensions of being something it's not.

    Ellis has one great, understated moment, when Sarah (Odette Annable), the love of his life, confronts him about his failings, and you can see Rush realizes the gulf between the man he is and the man he’d like to be is a chasm he’ll never be able to breach. The show needs more of this. But no, it backs away from the edge.

    With "Satisfaction" an hour later proving even USA now knows what adult TV can really be, Rush doesn't deliver one.

  • Brian Lowry

    Ellis is fine, but it’s all pretty tired stuff--"Entourage" with a medical degree.

    Variety Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    Rush hits all its notes with a solidity often known as stomping--Love trumps all pain and Rush must change his ways--and while it does offer another version of USA's other freelance-doc drama "Royal Pains," this concept actually doesn't look better in black.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    Rush lacks the sunny disposition--and the "MacGyver"-like skills--of his "Royal Pains" counterpart, and while Ellis exudes a certain dangerous charm, I found it wearing thin before the first episode was over.

  • Neil Genzlinger

    Rush is apparently a fine surgeon, but whoever is writing this show needs to transplant more personality into him. The bad behavior and occasional wisecracks in the first episode aren’t enough.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Allison Keene

    While Rush is very much in USA's wheelhouse, bearing passing resemblance tonally (that is, quick and breezy) to series like Royal Pains and Burn Notice, it doesn't come together as well as some of the network's more memorable series.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    The ludicrous medical melodrama Rush is a reminder that, if you push the envelope too hard without the compensating virtues of wit or even an iota of humanity and realism, the impulse is to push back.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    A badly cast Tom Ellis stars as Dr. William Rush.... He's unlikable and unsympathetic, which can be fine. He's also uninteresting, which can't be.

    The show and its central character are thoroughly repulsive.
