Product Description

The season continues as Tommy's drinking begins to spiral out of control. Sean recovers from his illness and heads back to work where Tommy's temper problems still get him in trouble. Needles and Lou both have new women in their lives, providing endless entertainment around the firehouse. Meanwhile, Tommy's womanizing ways begin to catch up to him when he finds himself caught between Janet, Sheila and an intriguing newcomer. Tensions boil over in a shocking turn of events during a late night at the bar, leaving Tommy Gavin in serious jeopardy in the hottest season yet.

Amazon.com

The 11 episodes that conclude Rescue Me's smokin' fifth season go from carpe diem to some very bad karma for Tommy (Denis Leary). "You seem to do whatever you want and nothing bad ever happens to you," Uncle Teddy (Lenny Clarke) states in the tense final moments of the harrowing and possibly game-changing finale. That's not entirely true. Tommy's family and personal life remain compellingly complicated: he falls off the wagon after a year of sobriety and tries to juggle supposed "no-strings" relationships with the volatile meds-upped Sheila (Callie Thorne) and his estranged wife, Janet (Andrea Roth), who finally issues Tommy an ultimatum. Sparking the season's final episodes is Maura Tierney as "hot older chick" Kelly, who intrigues Tommy after she rushes back into a burning building to retrieve a mysterious suitcase. "We're not a happy-type show," Leary states during a convivial cast-member "family dinner," the most substantial of this three-disc set's special features. But there are some inspired comic set pieces, including one grocery store excursion with Tommy, Lou (John Scurti), and company that descends into chaos. Other comic subplots (Franco taking up boxing and Mike's awful bar band) mercifully fizzle out. There is also some satisfying payback as Lou turns the tables on Candy, his ex-hooker, ex-thief girlfriend from season 2 with whom he is reunited. Rescue Me did not mellow in this fifth season. The banter is as profane as ever ("Too far, dude"), the worldview remains char black (Tommy subverts an intervention by pouring drinks for all), and the show continues to take bold chances. Suffice to say that one doesn't expect a Busby Berkeley musical homage from Rescue Me. As with all good cliffhanger endings, this season's conclusion leaves viewers eager to see what awaits on the other side. --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Show On TV January 31, 2010
By D. CO
I was kind of worried after watching season 4 it wasn't as good as the first 3 seasons. I feared the show had reached it's peak. Season 5 shot that idea down quick,fast,and in a hurry! I am currently working in Iraq (not in the milatary)so I don't get to see them til they come out on DVD. I was disappointed when I saw it was only 1 of 2. But I got the first so late I didn't have too long before to 2nd was out. Back to the review everything you loved about seasons 1-3 is back. The action,drama,and most of all comedy is back and better than ever. You will be glad you didn't give up on the series. A must have for anyone who likes a show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Show January 6, 2010
Love Denis Leary and Rescue Me. This show is top notch! I am extremely impressed with everything about this show from the writing, to the acting, to the stunts, to the casting. I usually don't follow series on TV but someone recommended this show to me and I got hooked from the first episode. Every season so far has been great and Season 5 vol 2 is as good as ever. The only negative is the huge cliffhanger the show leaves off on and now having to wait until June to find out what happens next.

There is a surprising at the end of this one. This show is one that doesn't let go of any feelings or hurt what so however. They make a point and stick with it. I love this show! I can't hardly wait for the next season!

This is one of the best developed comedies on TV today. Well written with all the booze, smoke, drama, & sex. The crew is back together again, with Tommy and his share of uncomfortable moments.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stretching The Story Too Far January 30, 2010
Verified Purchase
I've always felt that RESCUE ME was one of the best written, directed and acted series on television, but the creators faltered during this 5th Season.

There are still some truly memorable moments in many of the episodes. A scene between Andrea Roth and Callie Thorne in the firehouse still brings a smile to my face every time I think about it, as does a sequence with the guys at a supermarket.

I think that the problem with this season is that it ran 22 episodes, rather than the usual 13, and the writers/producers did not come up with enough story to fill it. Thus, the plot moves forward at a snail's pace, and there are too many scenes which are just marking time.

The season finale is certainly a cliff-hanger.

Hopefully, Season 6 will be better.

Too bad they stopped making this show. We really enjoyed Rescue Me. We were very sad to see it go away. I hope they revive this in the future.
