RESCUE ME: SEASON 1 MOVIE

Amazon.ca

Dennis Leary snarls as naturally as most actors smile. Leary's trademark ferocity and fearlessness drive Rescue Me, a series about a team of firemen struggling with their wives and lovers in post-9/11 New York City. Tommy Gavin (Leary, No Cure for Cancer, The Ref) is the guy everyone confides in, the heart of the firehouse--but he's also an active alcoholic who rages about his wife Janet (Andrea Roth) leaving him, a man guilt-ridden and literally haunted by all the people he blames himself for failing to save. Surrounding him are a crew of vivid characters, played by a little-known but outstanding cast: Handsome lothario Franco Rivera (Daniel Sunjata) discovers he's fathered a daughter with a psychotic ex-girlfriend; Ken Shea (John Scurti) struggles to resolve his post-traumatic stress by writing poetry; Mike Siletti (Mike Lombardi), the newest guy on the team, finds love with a partner the rest of the crew finds unacceptable; Chief Jerry Reilly (Jack McGee) risks his career when he beats a gay firefighter in a bar; and several others, all multi-faceted and sharply written. Rescue Me's first season launches with a full head of steam, tackling divorce, homophobia, and male bonding in a pellmell rush. The core theme of the show, however, is how men react to stress--how anger, bragging, competition, sex, and booze pacify their jagged emotions, pulling the firefighters together and isolating them at the same time. The first eight or so episodes rip along, spiced with high-energy scenes of fires and obscene, scatological banter. The second half of the series grows a little repetitive (beatings and steamy sex lose their vigor after a while) and some storylines stretch credulity, but the characters never lose their engaging complexity. Leary, who co-created the show and co-wrote many of the episodes, barrels through each hour like a force of nature, even as Tommy's increasingly erratic behavior threatens to alienate his family and his team. This bilious fusion of vices and virtues guarantees compelling television. --Bret Fetzer

I'd heard about Dennis' new show but was never able to find it at a regular time on my tv. I was a fan of the short lived series The Job and so I was naturally curious about Rescue Me. All I can say is WOW!! Rescue Me is to Firemen what The Shield is to Police Officers. This show is gritty, serious, sad and funny all at the same time. I picked up the dvd set on a Sunday and over the course of three nights I watched all 13 episodes, I was thoroughly engrossed. The characters are well thought out and interesting. Leary is the main engine of the show, but this should not take away from the supporting characters at all. Some of the best lines are delivered by Leary's fellow cast members. Leary's character Tommy Gavin is definitely not a hero in the traditional sense, but he is still sympathetic and compelling despite his character flaws. Some of my favourite scenes involve Tommy's Father and his Uncle and the antics they get up to. This show is definitely not for kids and might not appeal to everyone. If you are a fan of great acting and a compelling storyline then you should definitely check out this series. I only hope that in season 2 they go for a full 15 episodes.

The beginning of saga. Profane, wickedly funny black humor. This set introduces the main players for the ongoing examination of human frailty that besets us all. Set in New York, just after the Trade Centre bombings, this show deals with the personal demons of a crew of fire fighters, centred around and magnified by the bombings. Superbly written and very well acted. It's dark humor at it's finest.

The main character in this series is not especially interesting or likable. His visions of his dead partner and monologues do not add to the plot lines. A heavy emphasis on 9/11 makes it less timely now that we are in 2013. Could be worse, could be better.

Bought this dramedy for my husband as he loves the FDNY and NYC in general. He has always been interested in 9/11. This show has had us both crying and laughing in the same episodes. great for both men and women. the whole series is fantastic.
