    About the show



    From the official site:

    Ben Affleck, Oscar-winning co-writer of Good Will Hunting, and Sean Bailey, his executive-producing partner on the breakout hit Project Greenlight, take another bold step in the re-invention of modern entertainment with the provocative and offbeat mystery series Push, Nevada.

    Mild-mannered IRS agent Jim Prufrock (Derek Cecil) travels to a remote desert town in search of missing money and stumbles on a place where mystery, danger and peculiar characters lurk around every off-kilter corner. Everyone has a secret in Push, Nevada, but no one is talking, unless they're telling Jim to get out of town fast. Every word, every sign, every gesture could hold a clue to solving the riddle of this tiny Nevada town.

    The mystery begins when a fax from the Versailles Casino in Push is sent by accident (perhaps) to Jim, alerting him to a sizable accounting error and an embezzlement scheme involving a fortune in cash. Casino honcho Silas Bodnick refuses to talk about the missing money, so Jim's investigation leads him to Push, where nothing is as it seems.

    Push is a town where neighborhood couples indulge in synchronized romance each night at 9:15; where the only casino, the Versailles, pays out the biggest jackpots in the state; and where the lonely look for companionship at "Sloman's," a slow-dance bar. It's there that Jim meets Mary (Scarlett Chorvat), a beautiful and enigmatic woman who tells him that the mystery of Push is, "like all the best secrets, not quick in the telling," and warns him to go home before he gets hurt. A determined man, Jim plans to find out what mystery lies behind Push, no matter what the risk. All along the way, a shadowy team of high-tech operatives monitors his every encounter with the town's denizens.

    I must say, it's an intriguing idea.

    As far as Ben Affleck, the writer, he IS talented. His style isn't all that much different from Kevin Smith, (who I adore) and it's dialogue driven. So, that seems interesting.

    However, I just don't see how this is going to gel and seems very confusing to me. What clues? Are they going to be a little TOO obvious? I look at it and it all screams 'gimmick' to me. Maybe not.

    I'm gonna have to wait and see on this one.

    I hate that is is against too many other shows. They are showing the premeire tonight, but I don't think one episode will be enough to steal loyal follwers of other Thursday night shows.

    Well, Tuesday nights at 9 on ABC will soon be available for another show, I think.
