Product Description

Amazon.ca

Is firefighter and "heroic S.O.B." Tommy Gavin (Denis Leary) becoming, as one character so delicately puts it, "pussified?" As the fourth season begins, Tommy is listening to Dr. Laura and watching Oprah. He awkwardly and clumsily avoids the aggressive crazy-hot volunteer woman firefighter (Jennifer Esposito) who saved his life in the beach-house fire of which he has no memory; an act that has left him, shall we say, with a limp hose. In time, he will proclaim to be "back to the old me," but this season, he engages in behavior that would give even the old Tommy pause, and puts audience empathy for this deeply flawed character to the supreme test. In one of this season's most wrenching developments, Tommy and his estranged wife, Janet (Andrea Roth), are living together platonically to care for her new baby, whose paternity is in question. But, failing to bond with the infant, Janet sinks to the depths of post-partum depression, driving Tommy to think the unthinkable, and to do the unforgivable. Elsewhere, dim, but good-hearted Sean (Steven Pasquale) struggles to make a go of his rocky marriage to the unstable Maggie (Tatum O'Neal), Chief Jerry (Jack McGee) fails his post heart attack stress test and is relegated to a desk job, the firehouse makes a play for a new probie (Larenz Tate) who might change the basketball team's fortunes, and Tommy finds himself even further alienated from his rebellious and contemptuous daughter (Natalie Distler), who is living with a rock musician. Along with Esposito, Gina Gershon joins the ranks of series hotties as a bar pickup with some sexual kinks. But the one who really lights our fire is Amy Sedaris as the bipolar daughter of the new chief (Jerry Adler), who insists Tommy take her out. Rescue Me doesn't just tear the basic cable envelope, it incinerates it. Unlike other long-running shows, Rescue Me stays true to its gritty muse, with no attempt to make difficult characters more likeable. The edges remain sharp and the humor charred black (the series is not above--or beneath--cheap Anna Nicole Smith jokes in the wake of a shocking tragedy that rocks the firehouse). While perhaps not as consistent or compelling as previous seasons, No. 4 contains indelible moments, such as Tommy and Janet's visit to a marriage counselor, who, after hearing their tortured history, thinks he's being punk'd, and a Gavin family intervention ("We got enough drunks here to start our own AA meeting," Maggie observes). The bountiful bonus features, including nearly a half hour's worth of deleted scenes, a season overview and a featurette about real firefighters, add extra spark to this set. --Donald Liebenson

A bit uneven, but still a more than solid season March 30 2008
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Haunted firefighter Tommy Gavin (Denis Leary) knows about tragedy all too well. He doesn't quite remember what happened at the beach-house at the end of the previous season of FX's Rescue Me, but all he does know is that he is under investigation, while Sheila (Callie Thorne) picks up the pieces. To make things more hectic, Tommy and his estranged wife Janet (Andrea Roth) are taking care of the new baby, that may be Tommy's or may be his late brother's (Dean Winters). Tommy's concerns over the baby's safety come into question as well, which leads to a decision that could forever destroy any repairs made to his marriage with Janet. In the meantime, Chief Reilly (Jack McGee) gets worse news; Sean (Steven Pasquale) starts to grow a pair in regards to his new marriage to Maggie (Tatum O'Neal) and learns a big secret about Probie Mike (Michael Lombardi) in one of the series' funniest and shocking moments; Kenny's (John Scurti) relationship with an ex-nun takes a downward turn; Franco (Daniel Sunjata) has a big decision to make while trying to get back his daughter from Alicia (Susan Sarandon); Tommy's daughter Colleen (Natalie Distler) starts to rebel in a big way; and a new recruit (Larenz Tate) makes an impact on the group. While the drama and character development was high in the fourth season of Rescue Me, there was just something about this season that didn't feel all that compelling compared to what has been done on the series before. Also, there was a bit of an uneven feel with a number of already established characters (particularly Probie Mike), but despite the flaws, the fourth season of Rescue Me is still a more than solid season of the series. The season concludes on a bit of a down note, but seeds have been planted for some big time developments to come. All in all, Rescue Me continues to entertain and even impress, and here's hoping that there's more drama to come from Leary and company.

Awesome Series But Not The Best Season! April 24 2008
By James Shannon Bussey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying this is arguably the best drama I have ever seen. That being said, this season did not meet my expectations when compared to the first three seasons. Even so this DVD is a must have for any collection.
The season starts just where last season ended, a fire at Shiela's house. There are a few tremendous ups and downs, but this season just didn't have that punch in the gut that the other three seasons have. Don't get me wrong, I loved every episode and 10 minutes after an episode, I couldn't wait to watch the next. Don't get me wrong, this season is great it is just that Leary and company set the bar so high in the previous seasons, it is almost impossible to achieve.

Great show May 30 2008
By J. Bonnell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Just one of the best series on T.V. The mix of comedy and drama is flawless. The action sequences seem very realistic and great detail is taken to show the danger that real fireman face everyday. Sure the storylines are a little out there but what T.V. show is not. And very few have the excellent writing and production as this series. Besides I just love Denis Leary!!

Disappointed. June 25 2009
By Shades - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I fell in love with this show when I saw the pilot. I've since seen all the seasons and continued to watch all of them over and over while patiently waiting for the fourth season to be released.
Well, I as disappointed. The fourth season is not nearly as interesting as the others. It lacks the creativity the others had, and while the other seasons were emotional, they were still upbeat. This one was just depressing. They had so much to work with and they did nothing with it.

Rescue Me is a natural Leader on Fire! June 2 2008
By lynda - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It doesn't get any better than Rescue Me when it comes to cable television. It kills us to hear that we may have to wait another year now to view season five, due to the strike! Buy the first season and all the rest, you'll be in for many surprises! The drama and comedy mix is brilliantly done!
