Product Description

The critically acclaimed, Emmy® - nominated series about the inner workings of a New York City firehouse and the emotional battles of its members returns for a second season. Created and written by Denis Leary and Emmy® award winner Peter Tolan (“The Larry Sanders Show,” “Murphy Brown”), RESCUE ME’s second season finds Timmy Gavin (Denis Leary) away from his former crew, Truck Company 62, and working in a Staten Island firehouse. He must come to terms with the havoc his drinking has cause and realizes it’s time to get his problems under control. His comrades back at 62 Truck aren't faring much better. Chief Reilly struggles with the recent Alzheimer's diagnosis of his wife and her deteriorating condition. Franco juggles the responsibilities of raising his daughter while trying to return to work. Lt. Shea discovers just how lonely the single life can be and Laura complicates house relations by getting involved with a colleague.

Rescue Me is a wake up call for every man who (as a kid) dreamed about becoming a fireman and every woman who fantasized about being with one. As flawed and complicated as they are selfless and heroic, the fire fighters in this FX series are a compelling lot. They deal with infidelity, drug addiction, and sexual abuse on a daily basis and make it seem like old hat. But the characters are so well thought out that they almost always make viewers care about what's developing in their lives. This second season surpasses the debut year in terms of story lines and pacing. Series creator Denis Leary (Ice Age, No Cure for Cancer) reprises his role of Tommy Gavin. Separated from his wife and children and also battling a drinking addiction, Tommy is now working as the new guy in a Staten Island firehouse. He isn't a hero so much as he's his own best victim. Luckily, he's still got some loyal friends who're quick to nip his pity-parties short: "You feeling a little angry? You feeling a little hurt? You feeling betrayed? Well, congratulations, you're feeling, and you're feeling because you're sober." With his hangdog features and fast-paced speech pattern, Leary is surprisingly believable in the role. Returning character Chief Reilly (Jack McGee) faces some struggles of his own, as he watches his wife's spiral downward thanks to Alzheimer's. And it's not much easier for Franco (Daniel Sunjata), who is trying to figure out the best ways to care for his daughter while working an unpredictable schedule. While the drama on this show can sometimes be fiery and intense, the series provides enough biting humor to lend it an air of humanity and, at times, even a little warmth. It doesn't leave viewers wanting to be fire fighters, but rather empathizing with them. --Jae-Ha Kim

By N. Durham HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on April 5, 2006
Format: DVD
The first season of FX's Rescue Me was solid to say the least, but not only does season two improve the series on every possible aspect, it blows it away. Tortured New York firefighter Tommy Gavin (Denis Leary) finds his life in shambles as his wife and children have left him, his girlfriend on the side is pregnant, and he's been re-assigned to another firehouse that sees no action at all. Eventually everything works itself out, and Tommy sorts his life back together as he quits drinking, but by the end of the season, Tommy's new found sobriety is tested in a way that you'll never see coming, as tragedy strikes and things are promised to never be the same again. There are sub-plots galore, including the captain (Jack McGee) dealing with his mentally debilitating wife and reconciling with his gay son, as well as Franco's pain killer problems. It's surprising that Leary and co. managed to weave a storyline so involving, and the cast once again does electric work, particularly Leary whose scathing style is in fine form. By the end of the season, you'll be begging for more, guaranteed; as things take a turn for the worst, and things are set to explode for season three. All in all, like FX's other series the Shield and Nip/Tuck, Rescue Me achieves a surprising greatness in it's sophomore season, and hopefully, season three will be every bit as good.

This series quite simply has no equal. Denis Leary truly is an acting force of nature, giving us a character so utterly compelling in Tommy Gavin that it is impossible to take your eyes off him. Add to that a wonderful supporting cast (especially Jack McGee, Daniel Sunjata and John Scurti, and you are left with one of the finest pieces of television in history.

And on a personal note, to the reviewer below who suggests that the events of 9/11 did New York a favour, you are a vile, cretinous piece of human garbage. The 343 brave men who died on that day did so for people like you, you ungrateful scumbag. These men possessed a courage that few of us can ever begin to appreciate. As for the series emulating real life, well, I'd like to see how you reacted if you lost 343 members of your family. Crawl back under the rock you came from and die.

Alright, here we go: 'Rescue Me' is a great show, and I think the second season is probably even a little better than the first. It's a matter of taste, it always is, of course, but particularly here as the show has moved in a somewhat different, more dramatic direction. It's still got plenty of humor, of course, but the season has still got a more violent, dramatic tone and it ends in a black pit of despair for pretty much every character. (Well, alright, that's pretty true of the first season also, but it's even worse this time around.)

Anyway, the appeal of this show is simply that it's got a large cast of very interesting characters, most of whom are fairly likable in spite of their various flaws. The show centers around Denis Leary's Tommy, of course, who is extremely reminiscent of Leary's standup persona, being the loud, angry, foul-mouthed jerk. Tommy Gavin certainly isn't a nice guy, and most people will try and tell you that he's a complex and conflicted and you aren't really particularly supposed to like him, but pshh, whatever. *I* like him. He's my hero, in fact. The fact of the matter is, 90% of the time, Tommy is in the right. Of course, in that other 10% he tends to severely over step the bounds of civilized society, but ehh, who cares. Beyond him the most important character, at least in my mind, is Ken Shea, lieutenant in the firehouse. He's probably the most conventionally likable character here, smarter and funnier than anyone else in the show, while simultaneously seeming like more of just a regular guy. He certainly ain't perfect either, but he's still really the heart of the show, I think.

Im so glad this is finally being released. You here actual firefighters talk about this show and how it truly relates to real life and it just proves it so much. I mean you just have to sit down and get to know the characters in a few episodes. I know I first started watching this on a late friday night and I was so bored so I watched 6 episodes back to back on FX and just started to love it. The 2nd season was so spectacular and I cnat wait to start watching the 3rd which should start soon after the 2nd season. Trust me, all it takes is a few episodes to get hooked.

You likely wouldn't have watched this if you weren't a follower of this series; after all, Season 2 jumps right into the fray with the same characters going ever deeper into their world of emotional goop. These are men (basically, except for the strong women leads who seem to provide much of the logical balance here) who are either tough guys from their childhoods to too idiotic to do much else other than work out and show up for work. But what catches you is that this is a brief portrayal of real life. Who hasn't known a Tommy or Franco or Chief who drinks too much, is too horny or thinks the world revolves around him because he's always right? Homophobic? Check! Refuse to change because you can bluff your way out of a Tyvek bag? Check! Think women are here to serve and that's just the way it should be? Check! Ignorance is bliss? Check! So naturally, the world has to show these folks a bit of reality, that the rolling ball has a kink in a corner and sometimes skews off course...the onset of Alzheimers, the love of your life making you realize she's really fed up and good luck finding someone else, the half brother and half sister entering your life from the blind side. All in all, Season 2 digs up another set of dramas that carry on the tradition of Season 1...in fact, this season seems to have settled down a bit as if to say, "okay, now that I've got your attention, let's get to it." Worth watching if you're a fan...
