  1. After watching the first four episodes of the sixth season back-to-back--an endurance test I don’t recommend--it’s apparent Rescue Me is recycling plots.

    The drama can be over the top, and sometimes it feels like one big ego trip for Leary.... But the show is like the comic: imperfect but lovable.
  3. There are no actual fires involved, and several key scenes are played in near-silence. The emotional intensity, though, rips right through the screen.
