Triple Rush – A New TV Show About New York Bike Messengers

with 2 comments

I can’t believe I didn’t hear about this show in advance. Thank goodness I was catching up on my Man Vs Food last night or I would have missed the premiere episode of Triple Rush – The Travel Channel‘s newest show about New York City bike messengers.

The show follows 3 different sized bike messenger companies in New York City. We follow along and get a close look at the dangerous lifestyle of these messengers. My first impression is that the show has great potential to portray some fantastic, real-life drama – unlike a lot of the reality shows out there. The pace was fast with fresh and interesting content throughout. It didn’t dwell on one story for too long by stretching it out just to fill the time slot.

I completely got hooked on the high stress and adrenaline captured in the first episode – which was about rookies. I hope the series can maintain this.

Check it out yourself on Thursday nights on the Travel Channel. Check your local listings for time.

Catch them on Twitter and Facebook too.

  1. I read this a few years ago. Fun book:

    Hopefully I can catch this show online, as I have gone to ultra-basic cable.

  2. I’ll have to check out that book. I have an odd fascination with the bike messenger lifestyle. I couldn’t ever be one, but I love the idea of the freedom they have.

    I tried to find the show on Hulu, but it just pushes me back to their site. Hopefully, they’ll run the full episodes online.
