Performance

One of the best shows ever, but some adult content means it is definitely not for the little ones. The writing is superb, as is the acting and cinematography. If you like "locker room humor" mixed with a touch of drama, you'll love this one.

Editors Note
Note In this fourth season of the hit dramatic series from FX, the entire Ladder 62 crew is persecuted by the media for failing to prevent the death of seven children in a fire. That, unfortunately, is only the beginning of the tragedy and turmoil in store for the boys and their families. Tommy's daughter Colleen runs away from home, Janet is concerned her newborn baby doesn't like her, the verdict is announced for Uncle Teddy's manslaughter trial, and one of Engine 62's own commits suicide. As if that weren't enough, Tommy himself is being investigated for a beach house fire in the incendiary fourth season of this feverishly macho, seriocomic heavyweight. An apoplectic Denis Leary once again leads the game cast, who is joined by guest stars Gina Gershon (SHOWGIRLS, FACE/OFF), Desmond Harrington (WRONG TURN), and Artie Lange (BEER LEAGUE).

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.
