As an erstwhile alternative rock critic, I have to say “Push Girls” doesn’t qualify as great television the way “The Sopranos,” “NYPD Blue,” “Hill Street Blues” (dating myself there, ain’t I?) and many others do. As a person with a disability who faces accessibility issues and an ongoing struggle that I gratefully acknowledge isn’t as hard for me as for others (I still have mobility), I enjoyed the program.
As a disabled critic, I agree with Suzanne Robitaille’s comments that “Push Girls” battles perceptions on several levels. I haven’t read the New York Times review Robitaille cites. I recognize the women are not fully developed as subjects yet, but this is the pilot episode. Maybe I’ve become a little more forgiving as I’ve aged, but let’s see what happens. Watch the pilot here.
Come on everybody, let’s get a little discussion going here … fan the flames a little bit … get opinionated … lay it out there … there are no wrong answers!
