Leary's masterpiece

by J on 2/19/2013

I started watching this series from day one and then lost connection to it because of the way USA changed season runs. I thoroughly enjoyed re-watching the early episodes and continuing into later seasons. My only complaint is the packaging of the DVDs. They are separated onto two spindles and one ends up taking multiple DVDs off to reach the bottom ones. For the price, it is well worth it to invest in a few DVD boxes to store the discs separately.

Product Overview

Tommy Gavin (Denis Leary) is a lifesaver. Whether he is pulling survivors from fiery high-rise infernos or the twisted steel of a subway collision, Gavin takes great pride in leading the heroic but often overwhelmed firefighters of New York City's Truck Company 62. Gavin is also a man drifting between sorrow and anger over a recent separation from his wife (Andrea Roth) and three kids, and recurring memories of comrades and other New Yorkers who fell victim to the tragedy of 9/11. Leary and multiple Emmy Award-winning writer-producer Peter Tolan (The Larry Sanders Show, Murphy Brown), the team behind the critically acclaimed cop drama The Job, have reunited as creators, writers and executive producers of Rescue Me

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, 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 faring 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.

The third season of Denis Leary and Peter Tolan's Emmy-nominated series examines 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?

In Season 4, An arson investigation following the beach house fire targets Tommy, Janet worries that her new baby doesn't like her, Colleen runs away from home, a not guilty verdict is delivered in Uncle Teddy's manslaughter trial, Jerry commits suicide, the crew from 62 Truck is savaged in the press for not being able to save seven children from dying in a tragic fire - it's another season of challenge and turbulence for Tommy and the guys.

The men of 62 Truck are back for the Emmy-nominated fifth season! This season, Denis Leary and the gang deal with death, love, conspiracy theories, alcoholism, cancer and more as they look to the future while under the shadow of a haunting past.

The acclaimed, groundbreaking series from creators Denis Leary and Peter Tolan comes to an unforgettable end in the remarkable and tumultuous Sixth Season and emotional Final Season. As troubled NYPD firefighter Tommy Gavin (Denis Leary) confronts his need for rescue and redemption, the crew of 62 Truck wages their own climactic struggle to survive and persevere--both on the front lines and in their personal lives. Embraced by critics and viewers alike for searing, true-to-life performances and unflinching storytelling, Rescue Me closes out its astonishing run with the most compelling seasons of the series.
