Great show!Rating: 3 likes, 0 dislikes
Not since Water Rats have I liked an Australian police show so much! Rush does well in complimenting police action with characterizations, which makes the show enjoyable to watch.
Each of the main characters have stories behind them, something that makes them tick - to me, it makes them more interesting and is an appealing aspect of the show. My favourite character is Catherine McClements' Kerry Vincent. She may appear to be a bit of a 'tough nut' but underneath it all, she seems to have a lot of vulnerabilities and insecurities about her, making Kerry a very interesting and complex character.
The writers on Rush aren't afraid to make the tough decisions either. There isn't always a happy ending, and that is something I feel sets it apart from some other Australian police shows.
One thing, however, that is slowly getting to me about Rush is the relationships amongst the team members. All of the main characters have been together with at least one other person, with the exception of Kerry, and Leon. Enough already!
