‘Rush’ Episode Guide (Aug. 28): Alex Gets a Taste of Rush’s Lifestyle

“Because I Got High” (08/28/14) – Rush treats a rock star who introduces him to, a powerful hallucinogenic drug that propels him toward a life-changing realization. Meanwhile, Alex takes a call on Rush’s behalf and gets a taste of his lifestyle. Also, Eve grows concerned when personal belongings disappear from her apartment.

USA Network’s “Rush” examines the world of renegade physician Dr. William P. Rush (Tom Ellis, “Miranda”), whose highly discreet approach comes with a hefty price tag — and he only accepts cash.

When the city’s wealthiest and most elite have a medical emergency, they don’t call an ambulance — they call Rush. After an impulsive decision cost him his career as an ER doctor, Rush went freelance. Now, he lives out of a hotel suite and traverses Los Angeles in his mobile office (a vintage Mercedes), providing discreet private medical care. Though the hard-partying doctor with a penchant for popping pills claims that he doesn’t make judgments about his less-than-squeaky-clean clients, he’s not immune to the ugliness that he encounters.

Rush’s devoted assistant, Eve (Sarah Habel, “Whip It”), encourages him to clean up his act and does her best to keep him reined in daily. However, thanks to the arrival of a former flame, Sarah (Odette Annable, “Two and a Half Men”), there’s a part of Rush that may even want to change, but — like the scratched CDs he still listens to in his car — Rush is a little worse for wear and may be a little stuck. Still, the bad-boy doctor has a fundamentally good heart. Maybe that’s part of his problem.

From Fox21 and writer/director Jonathan Levine (“Warm Bodies”), along with Little Engine’s Gina Matthews and Grant Scharbo (“The Gates,” “Popular”), the series was filmed in Vancouver, Canada.
