Rush Hour is a comedic action show that premiered on CBS in 2016. It is based on the popular movie series of the same name starring Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan. The show follows Detectives James Carter (played by Justin Hires) and Yan Naing Lee (played by Jon Foo) as they solve crimes in the city of Los Angeles.

The show begins with Lee arriving in Los Angeles from Hong Kong, where he has been sent to help the LAPD with a case. Lee is a skilled martial artist and a serious, by-the-book detective who has trouble adjusting to the American way of doing things. Meanwhile, Carter is a fast-talking, rule-breaking, wise-cracking detective who knows the city like the back of his hand. The two detectives are assigned to work together to solve the case, despite their very different personalities.

Throughout the series, Lee and Carter solve a variety of crimes, including murder, robbery, and kidnapping. They also work to uncover bigger conspiracies and take down criminal organizations. Along the way, they are assisted by Didi Diaz (played by Aimee Garcia), a tough and intelligent LAPD officer who is also Carter's on-again-off-again love interest. They also work with Gerald (played by Page Kennedy), a coroner who provides them with valuable information and comedic relief.

The show also explores the personal lives of the characters. Lee's wife and daughter are still in Hong Kong, and he struggles to balance his work with his family obligations. Carter has a strained relationship with his father, who is in prison, and tries to make amends throughout the series. Didi struggles to balance her career with her desire for a family. Kim (played by Jessika Van) is a streetwise hacker who often helps the detectives with their cases.

One of the strengths of the show is the chemistry between Lee and Carter. Despite their differences, they form a close friendship and rely on each other to get the job done. Their banter is often hilarious, with Carter's wisecracks bouncing off of Lee's seriousness.

Another strength of the show is its action sequences. The fight scenes are well-choreographed and showcase Jon Foo's martial arts skills. The show also features car chases and gun fights that keep the audience on the edge of their seats.

Overall, Rush Hour is an entertaining show that blends action and comedy. While it may not have been as successful as the movie series that inspired it, it still has plenty of laughs and exciting moments. Fans of buddy cop comedies will enjoy watching the dynamic between Lee and Carter as they work to solve crimes and save the day.
