Dr. William Rush has his own practice where he primarily has clients that requires him to be highly discreet no matter what the ailment is, and as long as they pay his cash-only premium he complies. Rush can party with the best of them and has little to no morals until an old flame and his conscience begin to stir things up.
Rush is a cool show with an interesting main character. Too bad it lasted only one season.
Is Rush good?
Both Rush and Lucifer have Tom Ellis playing the main character, and both characters also have many similarities to them. Rush is however only a human, no supernatural stuff there.
Why is Rush recommended?

I like this show. The main character is witty and cool. Much better than your average CSI type of show.
Is iZombie good?
iZombie tries to explain its fantasy elements with scientific reasoning, but Lucifer still feels similar to iZombie. If you like one of them then you will probably like the other.

Both Lucifer and Lost Girl have supernatural elements in them. Lost Girl also sometimes helps out the cops, but mainly on supernatural causes.

The main characters in both Lucifer and White Collar has some similarities in their characteristics.
Why is White Collar recommended?

He also works as a consultant to the Chicago police with Detective Murphy on those cases considered bizarre.
I was at first a little put off because it differs from the stories told in the books, but after I come over that I started to really like it. The essence of the show is the same as the books, and you get a similar feeling. It is worth watching even if you have not read the books.

His skills as a mentalist, ex psychic comes in handy when working on cases because he is exceptional at drawing logical conclusions from minute details.
This is a really good show. They drag the Red John story out a little too long, but that`s OK since the main part of the show is the individual cases and the relationships between the characters.
