Storyline

Rush follows the lives of members of the prestigious Tactical Response team (TR), which is based on the real life Victoria Police Critical Incident Response Team, a highly mobile unit that fills the operational gap between general duties police and the SWAT-like Special Operations Group. The team is seen responding to violent incidents such as carjackings, suicides and armed offences. Rush focuses on the TR officers, their intelligence officer, Leon Broznic and Superindendent Kerry Vincent, head of the TR administration. It explores both the working and personal lives of the team.

Trivia

The show was originally scheduled to appear in 2004, entitled "Rapid Response". The pilot was shot, based on an episode of "Police Rescue" and starring Matthew Le Nevez, Paul Pantano, Libby Tanner and comedienne Corrine Grant in a dramatic part. It was not until the US writer's strike put a halt to Ten's US content that the show was resurrected (along with a revamped Good News Week), with a new cast (two of whom had just experienced success in another Melbourne-based crime drama on Channel Nine, "Underbelly"), edgier style and original script.

i can't believe this show has only one review
5 February 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

It's good and it deserves better.

I don't want to spoil it and talk about what happens. I would like however to mention how Aussie shows manage to capture real life better than American shows - who just lose themselves in unnatural drama. I don't know if that's because Aussie life is more down-to-earth than American life since I haven't been to any of those countries, but somehow I can relate to Rush much more than to any American cop show i've seen lately.

The characters are believable and real. And yeah, some ideas might not be the most original out there, but they don't feel fake while watching, and when watching this show I don't get that odd sensation I sometimes get when watching other shows - that feeling that someone's really trying hard to come up with a good story and it just doesn't get out. The story flows naturally.

Let's hope they don't lose it. I hope they go as long as Water Rats - maybe longer.
