  • Tour de Rush

    8.5
    A veritable tour de Rush! Babs is marvelous as the cuckoo client. Fortunately they don't try to turn this into a "mystery," inasmuch as it's pretty obvious what the caper is from the outset, so we just sit back and watch the story unfold (as Rush's character folds). Also this is the closest I've seen to the 3 leads having a rapport in this series, and one that holds up for the full hour (in addition to which, Cabot's "analysis" of their client's handwriting provides for some cheesy fun). This idea btw also turned up later on in a nifty episode of Charlie's Angels. Oh yeah, and the cinematography and all that (and stark black-&-whiteness) really serve to accentuate the canted, out of kilter mood. And Nikki's death threats to her alter ego are marvelously weird (and even kinda chilling). The best one of these that I've seen so far.moreless
