EXCELLENT, What Can I Say?
2 December 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I just finished up watching Rush Season 2 and wow, just wow. With So many American cop shows out these days all seem to be utter junk. Although there are some good ones. What stands out about Rush the most is (not to mention its filmed in Australia, Victoria) is that unlike other Police Dramas it has Realism aspect to it. I mean how many cop shows do you watch and they kill someone and its like oh well. Although I do understand that it was an innocent man that was shot the realism each of the Police officer face, not knowing which one actually shot Him, I believe really captivates the Audience and gives that extra bit of realism. The cast is excellent, Not any bad acting or poorly preformed scene with crutty lines, I Think its has got to be one of the best cop shows, if not one of the best show in Aus. I would recommend this show to anyone.

EXCELLENT 10/10
