    Wow, a good-guy IRS agent in a land of loop-de-loopholes. Any show that can sell that premise is well worth your time and attention. [17 Sept 2002]

    The fall season's most beguiling and innovative newcomer, a visually playful and fetching desert noir in which an intrepid IRS agent is actually our hero. Hero!? You bet. [17 Sept 2002]

    It takes a lot to make an I.R.S. agent the good guy in a series -- a lot of nerve, imagination and clever writing, a combination that sets the inspired Push, Nevada apart from every other new show of the season.

    Me, I have enough fun just watching the show, thanks. Interactive is too much work. With so much going on in "Push, Nevada," I'm happy with active.

    If you can get past the show's visual tricks and excessive self-consciousness, there is some fun to be had here.

    Push, Nevada is not a terrible series in any way, shape or form. In fact, it's fairly entertaining. But what I absolutely hate about it is how desperately hard it tries to be Twin Peaks. [17 Sept 2002, p.1E]

    There needs to be some inducement to watch this empty exercise in style, and more than $1 million isn't enough. [17 Sept 2002, p.E1]

    This show is probably the best evidence for never trusting network TV executives. They had a really intriguing show going but they left it outThis show is probably the best evidence for never trusting network TV executives. They had a really intriguing show going but they left it out to dry and left the users out to dry by not finishing the at least the first season. It felt a little bit like Twin Peaks but that really is a bit too much praise. Expand
