    rush"Rush" (not the movie or the other TV series) is like any doctor show you can imagine - on steroids.  And I wouldn't doubt it if the main character wasn't actually on steroids - he ingests everything else.  Everything.  Ev-ery-thing.

    Let me see if I can encapsulate my feelings about the pilot episode:

    • Love it.
    • Hate it.
    • Love it again.
    • Hate it again.
    • Like it enough to continue watching.

    Rinse and repeat.

    The main character, William P. Rush as played by Wales actor Tom Ellis is a hard partying doctor who will do just about 1) anyone, 2) any drug or 3) anything for a buck - or, er, actually lots of bucks because usually his clients want to remain "off the grid" for whatever medical procedure they're calling him for and they pay handsomely.

    Bank.  Moola.  Cashola - he thrives on it.
