Idealistic, incorruptible IRS agent Jim Prufrock receives a mysterious fax containing financial information about the shady Versailles Casino in a small corrupt Nevada desert town called Push. Jim travels there to investigate who sent him the fax and why, and uncovers hints of a government conspiracy of unfathomable proportions. Meanwhile, mysterious men in black search for a bible stolen along with $1 million from the casino's vault. In each episode, a clue is inconspicuously given about the secret message that the viewers should put together and send to the production studio to win actual $1 million. Although the show was canceled before all clues were given, a lucky viewer managed to put it all together and win the prize.

I'm going to miss this one...
11 October 2002 | by dbgossamerSee all my reviews

Push, Nevada was a show that required a little thought. Therefore, it was doomed to fail from the start. Some may argue that shows like CSI require thinking and they're doing well. Not true. CSI gives you all the answers. Push, Nevada makes you come up with the answers on your own. Unfortunately the American public is too uneducated and ignorant to be able to follow this type of show.

So the jackasses at ABC are just going to chop up the last few episodes so that someone can figure out much quicker how to win the money and then cancel the show after a grand total of 7 episodes. What a waste. I just hope Ben Affleck will be kind enough to release the entire season, untouched, on DVD so that those of us who enjoy intelligent television can buy it and watch the show as it was meant to be seen.

Thanks for the effort, Ben. Your genius wasn't completely overlooked.
