Product Overview

The third season of Denis Leary and Peter Tolan's Emmy-nominated series examined the aftermath of devastating personal losses that the 62 Truck crew experienced at the end of the scorching second season.

Tommy is trying to hold his life and team together while dealing with the devastating loss of his son. Franco studies for the lieutenant's exam while "Probie" contemplates the end of his probationary period, and now both ponder leaving the house. Lou and Jerry each grapple with - or try to hide from - the financial crises they're facing. And Sean has a good reason for trying to keep the identity of the new woman in his life a secret. They're all falling apart in one way or another... can Tommy make the only family he has left come back together?

Editors Note
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 three picks up after the death of Tommy's young son at the end of the last season, endangering his already tenuous relationship with his wife. His extended family isn't making his life any easier, with his uncle (Lenny Clarke) in prison and his father (Charles Durning) in poor health. Tommy seeks solace in the arms of his brother's ex-wife (Oscar winner Marisa Tomei) and his late cousin's widow (Callie Thorne). This season also features guest appearances from Academy-Award-winning actresses Susan Sarandon and Tatum O'Neal. 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.

Reviews
ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review 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.
