Product Description

The third season of Denis Leary and Peter Tolan’s Emy® -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 Rescue Me's most controversial season, Tommy Gavin's demons really turn up the heat on the seriously damaged New York firefighter. Glavin (Emmy-nominee Denis Leary in searing performances throughout) is wracked with grief over the tragic death of his son and struggles to deal with his estrangement from his wife, Janet (a superb Andrea Roth). In the season's most hotly debated episode, Tommy forces himself on Janet in, initially, non-consensual sex. Later, she takes up with Tommy's brother, Johnny (Dean Winters). By this time, devoted viewers, in the words of one character, know Tommy's every "grunt, tic and tell." But even his ghosts can only laugh at how low he sinks this season ("Next stop, China," Tommy ruefully replies). To get back at Janet and Johnny, he begins to date Angie (guest star Marisa Tomei), Johnny's ex-wife. He continually succumbs to his "basest levels," as when he has sex with the high school science teacher who is having an affair with his godson, Damian. But Tommy is able to show courageous restraint as in the intense scene in which when he is left alone to confront the prime suspect responsible for another tragic death in the family.

Rescue Me's other flawed characters try to contain their own life crises. Chief Reilly (Jack McGee) is in desperate financial straits when the nursing home caring for his wife, who is suffering from Alzheimer's, raises its fees. Sheila (Callie Thorne) goes to her own shocking desperate measures to pursue Tommy. Tommy's father (venerable character actor Charles Durning) is becoming increasingly difficult to care for. Sean (Steven Pasquale) is secretly involved with Tommy's outrageously unstable sister, Maggie (Tatum O'Neal). Franco (Daniel Sujata) meets a "sugar momma" (Susan Sarandon) with devastating consequences. And "Probie" (Michael Lombardi) wrestles with his sexuality. Played mostly for comic relief is Teddy's (Lenny Clarke) stint in jail for the murder of the drunk driver who killed Tommy's son. This third season divided critics and viewers, but the uniformly excellent ensemble grounds even the most outrageous plot turns in reality. And it's a testament to the incisive writing and intimately observed performances that even when these characters behave most unsympathetically and invite the slings and arrows of "a little thing called karma," we are compelled to continue to take them into our homes and hearts. Or, as Tommy might say to that, "Blah, blah, blah." --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular April 15, 2007
The third, and arguably best, season of Rescue Me may have treaded on familiar territory, but it worked out with spectacular results nonetheless. As the season begins, Tommy (Denis Leary) is once again seperated from his wife (Andrea Roth) who still holds him responsible for the death of their son, while Tommy's uncle (Lenny Clarke) enjoys his time in prison for murder. Jerry (Jack McGee) copes with his wife's debilitating mental health, Sean (Steven Pasquale) gets in way, way over his head with Tommy's crazy sister (Tatum O'Neal), while Franco (Daniel Sunjata) gets involved with a vendictive older woman (Susan Surandon) who plans on making him pay one way, or the other. The main storyline of this season though is the love triangle between Tommy and his wife, as well as his cop brother (Dean Winters), which naturally as one would come to expect, doesn't end well for anybody involved. The season reaches it's boiling point (literally) as the crew appears to go their seperate ways, and Tommy lands a golden opportunity to run away with Shelia (Callie Thorne), and everyone's future comes into question. While there aren't as many surprises and shocks in this season as there were in the second, the third season of Rescue Me features plenty of great moments, as well as great guest roles from Sarandon and Marissa Tomei, who make the most out of their screen time. Leary is great as well once again, while the rest of the cast performs well to boot. All in all, Rescue Me pis undoubtedly the best original show to come out of FX since The Shield, and here's even more proof.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, absolutely brilliant! June 10, 2007
I re-watched season 3 and this show deserves every award possible. I loved seasons 1 & 2, and the 3rd doesn't disappoint. And best of all it is so FUNNY. Definitely the funniest season yet. I laughed so much in the first half of this season, which was a nice complement to some of the really heavy intensity of season 2. "I might need a sandwich...Mrs. Turbidy"

Denis Leary is a god. Not just a brilliant producer, comic, writer, but his acting is just stellar. And I don't know if anyone could ever top the performance of Steve Pasquale as Garrity. His comic timing is impeccable and he is 100% convincing as one of the stupidest but most harmless guys in the world. He was really at the top of his game in Season 3. He had great material to work with but his delivery is top notch. All the characters are just such a mess, but it's never taken to a level where it seems ridiculous and unbelievable. And the fact that the women are just as much a mess as the men makes it even more believable, it's not just about a bunch of firefighters afterall. It's also about the women in their lives and how dysfunctional all of their relationships are. I knew a couple like Tommy and Janet once, and it's scripted here to perfection. The johnny and janet plot line was a bit over the top for me at first, but then it was handled so well with Angela that it became believable. And at times i felt like the Probie sexuality issues were a bit cliche, like the writers felt they needed to have a storyline like that at some point in the show. But it all works. That's the brilliance matter what they do, it works. I was nervous that the seasons would get progressively worse and more contrived like most series do, but not this one. Not yet. And hopefully we can enjoy many more stellar seasons to come. No matter what happens down the road, Denis Leary needs to always be creating and performing!

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I could give you a detailed synopsis of season 3 but the previous reviewer did a god job and there is no need to say it again. What I will say is if you are looking for a show that can make you cry, laugh, and feel fuzzy inside, all in one episode, then this is the show for you. In my opinion Rescue Me is the best original show I have ever seen on cable television, possibly all time. Rescue blows The Shield completely away.

The actors in this show are phenominal, most are actors not seen anywhere else, but everyonce in a while a huge actor will make an appearance or two. But every actor plays their part exceptionally well. Dennis Leary is the star of the show and his acting is way beyond any expectations I ever had of him.

As the previous review stated, this season does not having the shocking moments but it has just as much if not more intensity than the other two combined.

This is by far the best show on TV!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like this, Check out "The Job" June 7, 2007
Rescue me is the best show on TV by far. This season was pretty edgy even though it had mellowed a little from previous. Buy it, you'll like it, but buy it from the beginning (season 1) so you understand all the characters a little better, besides, it will be worth the money.

As my title says, check out "The Job" Dennis Leary's original pilot. Only lasted one season, because America wasn't up for an edgy dramatic comedy like this at the time. It is a little more PG but hilarious none the less.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT TRANSFER! August 12, 2007
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you are thinking about buy this, you already know that the show is GREAT! The question you have is whether the blu ray version is worth the extra money. The answer is YES. I have always been very picky when it comes to transfer quality. Some have been poor, old version of the Fifth Element, and others have been superb, the Departed. Thankfully, the PQ(Pic Quality) for Rescue is excellent, one of the best.

Great show, even better picture quality
