Sometimes You Have to Play with Fire.
The critically acclaimed, Emmy-nominated series about the inner workings of a New York City firehouse and the emotional battles of its members returns for a second season.

Created and written by Denis Leary and Emmy award winner Peter Tolan (The Larry Sanders Show, Murphy Brown), Rescue Me's second season finds Tommy Gavin (Denis Leary) away from his former crew, Truck Company 62, and working in a Staten Island firehouse. He must come to terms with the havoc his drinking has caused and realizes it's time to get his problems under control. His comrades back at 62 Truck aren't fairing much better. Chief Reilly struggles with the recent Alzheimer's diagnosis of his wife and her deteriorating condition. Franco juggles the responsibilities of raising his daughter while trying to return to work. Lt. Shea discovers just how lonely the single life can be and Laura complicates house relations by getting involved with a colleague.

"...absolutely brilliant...the best show on television...  David Kronke, L.A. Daily News
"...thrilling[ly] raw...scathingly funny...Rescue Me is bound to haunt you.  New York Daily News
"...the best actor [Leary] playig the best character in the best show...  USA Today
"This series is officially on fire now.  Ken Aucker, Entertainment Weekly
"Rescue Me races out of the gate as confidently brilliant as ever before, wildly mixing emotions along the way.  Tim Goodman, San Francisco Chronicle
"One of TV's bleakest shows is also one of TV's best comedies. What a marvel.  Verne Gay, Newsday

Editor's Note
In this acclaimed TV dramedy, comedian Denis Leary plays Tommy Gavin, a New York fireman coping with the events of 9/11 and his own personal demons: drinking, a painful separation from his wife, and visions of his dead cousin. The other firefighters at 62 Truck aren't faring much better. Chief Reilly has a compulsive gambling addiction, ladies'-man Franco Rivera lives life fast and dangerous, and "Lou" Shea simmers with bottled-up frustrations. Season two opens with Gavin separated from his former crew and working in a Staten Island firehouse, where he tries to come to terms with his debilitating alcoholism. Adding the chaos of his life, he learns that his girlfriend, his cousin's widow, is pregnant. Leary and Emmy-winning Peter Tolan (THE LARRY SANDERS SHOW) write the gripping and darkly humorous show, which resonates with Leary's real life--his cousin, a firefighter, died in a tragic 1999 warehouse fire.

Professional Reviews

DVD Verdict 8 of 10
Crafted as a homage to the firefighters who lost their lives on 9/11, Rescue Me quickly proves that it's more than mere hero worship. It offers an entertaining (if skewed) look at this dangerous profession...Few will deny that firefighters have a particularly heroic job...At the same time, they are ordinary guys. They have issues and problems, make mistakes in their personal lives, and aren't usually noted for being an especially civilized group. In fact, if Rescue Me is at all accurate, they are a big bunch of jerks...The series does a great job of playing with this dichotomy. It's impossible not to respect these men as they place themselves in danger...Rescue Me flip-flops between claiming that we shouldn't approach firefighters as heroes and reminding us how heroic these men were at this critical event...Rescue Me is gutsy and unique, and if it had only had more variety and subtlety, it wouldn't have worn out its welcome the way that it did. - Joel Pearce
