Episode Review: Series Premiere of USA’s ‘Rush’

Rush | USA Network

This weekend, I finally got around to watching the new medical drama on USA called Rush.

I was really looking forward to watching it since seeing the previews all month. I was especially excited because Sarah Habel, the girl who played Daphne in MTV‘s Underemployed is Eve in this show, and if you’ve read my latest Buzzfeed post, you’ll know that I miss seeing her on MTV very terribly.

So the big deal about this show is the fact that Dr. Will Rush isn’t your typical doctor. Sure, he went to Harvard, graduated top of his class, and makes some serious dough as a private doctor, but he’s got his flaws.

We’re talking smoking weed in the bathroom at his about 8-year-old godson’s birthday party flaws. And snorting cocaine with a woman that he’d soon have to admit to the emergency room in the wee hours of the night flaws. “A club called ‘Emergency’,” to be more specific.

His romantic life’s a mess, and his patients? They’re not really the kind of people you’d want to run into at the grocery store.

My favorite scenes of the pilot episode are the parts where a patient calls with a broken cock and when Rush decides to give the girlfriend of one of his patients a taste of his own medicine.

And I don’t mean that in the doctoral way AT ALL.

I’ll admit that some of the scenes are a bit gory, like the spleen removal towards the end, but it’s bearable.

I loved the soundtrack for this episode, which included “Fifteen” by Goldroom ft. Chela and “All Eyes on You” by St. Lucia. I hope they keep it up with the good music!

I’m looking forward to next weeks episode.

Catch the pilot on USA‘s site, and watch this drool-worthy interview with the man that plays Dr. Rush, Welsh actor Tom Ellis. Love that accent, man! Gah!

Don’t forget to watch next week’s episode on Thursday night at 9/8c on USA!

Episode Review: ‘Devious Maids’ 1×5 “Taking Out the Trash”

Devious_Maids_logoIt’s been five episodes and I am most definitely hooked!

Last nights episode of Devious Maids titled “Taking Out the Trash” was full of drama. Between hitting people over the head with prosthetic legs and catfights with Remi’s high school ex-girlfriend, I could not help but stare at the screen with my jaw dropped as it all went down.

One of the biggest jaw droppers of this episode is learning that Carmen is married.

Yes, she is still tied to the man who tried to stop her from making her dreams become a reality.

Her husband Oscar finds out where she is working as a maid, and takes a trip out to see her. Sam and Odessa convince her to face him and let him know she doesn’t want to be married anymore.

However, Oscar has other plans, including returning her wedding band and trying to lure her back into his life with a gig at his friend’s restaurant.

Carmen refuses and things get violent. Oscar begins to forcefully grab Carmen and leave the house with her. Sam tries to take him on but gets knocked out and onto the bird cage, accidentally setting Alejandro Rubio’s bird free.

As much as Odessa wants to ruin Carmen’s life, she doesn’t want to give Oscar the pleasure of doing it for her, so she hits him over the head with her prosthetic leg.

That was the best fight I’ve seen in a while!

Other interesting events in this episode:

1. Valentina finds Remi’s high school ex girlfriend in his bed wearing red lingerie. When Remi leaves for an appointment with his college adviser, she gives Valentina a hard time, resulting in a cat fight between the two. (Side note: Pretty Little Liars fans, if you’re wondering where a Jason Dilaurentis went, he’s on Devious Maids! Remi Delatour is played by Drew Van Acker!)

2. When Peri Westmore leaves for work, Spence Westmore decides to swoop Rosie in for a kiss. She tells him no, and when he persists she threatens to hit him over the head with a pan. Peri returns to grab her keys and Rosie keeps her promise, leaving Spence on the floor just as Peri walks into the kitchen. Ooops. Blame it on the waxed floors!

3. Eddie had proposed to Flora a few months before her death. This case isn’t looking up for this kid.

4. Every year, Evelyn and Adrian Powell celebrate their dead son’s birthday. I just find it odd that they go the whole nine yards with a cake, candles AND a gift for him. He’s not alive to eat the cake, blow out the candles or even wear the wonderful cashmere blouse Evelyn got him! A simple memorial would have been fine but this is just too much! I hope they donate those gifts to a nice charity every year.

As with every week, I can never believe the episode is already over when it ends. Can’t wait for next week!
