    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]

    The reason to stick with it is to see if this ambitious but self-conscious series becomes more than the sum of its affectations--flat line readings, characters with names like Mr. Smooth, precious tilted-camera shots to remind you how weird it all is.

    It's nothing David Lynch hasn't crossed out and done better, but at least it's different. Most viewers won't play the game, but if you're interested, write down every number you see, call phone numbers you notice and pay attention to things that mysteriously change.

    The significance of naming the hero after T.S. Eliot's famous poem "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" (do you suppose the "J" stood for Jim?) is not readily apparent from the premiere, but then this is a show that doesn't aim to be readily apparent, or even to be reasonably coherent.

    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. Full Review »
