Synopsis


In season one of the FX network "dramedy" Rescue Me, it is abundantly clear that the harrowing events of September 11, 2001, are still taking their toll on the firefighters of New York City's Engine 62 company even after three years. Senior firefighter Tommy Gavin (Denis Leary) is carrying around so much emotional baggage that he has prompted his wife, Janet (Andrea Roth), to file for divorce. Desperately hoping to remain close to his three children, Tommy moves into the house across the street from his estranged wife, and spends most of the first season trying to drive a wedge between Janet and her current beau, Roger (Jay Potter) -- even though Tommy himself is hardly what one could call celibate. At the same time, our "hero" courts insanity by carrying on spirited conversations with the ghost of his cousin Jimmy (James McCaffrey), a firefighter killed in the line of duty. He goes so far as to promise Jimmy that he'll look after the man's widow; trouble is, he doesn't like what he sees. Elsewhere at Engine 62, Chief Jerry Reilly (Jack McGee) continues to compulsively gamble away not only his life savings but also his future pension; rookie Mike Siletti (Mike Lombardi) is the butt of some truly nasty practical jokes; Franco Rivera's (Daniel Sunjata) serial womanizing catches up with him in appalling fashion; Laura (Diane Farr), the new female member of the previously all-male firefighting team, does her best to bear up against a barrage of cloddish chauvinism; and the ongoing bitter rivalry between the FDNY and the NYPD culminates in a savagely brutal hockey game. ~ Hal Erickson

    This series had been recommended to me by a friend but I'd never gotten around to watching it. After the loss of a pet, I needed something to take my mind off my pain. I began watching this series on Netflix and would watch episode after episode for hours. I was completely absorbed in the characters stories, their pain, and the humor. After finishing the series, I had to own it. I also had never thought much of Denis Leary before, but am now a huge fan. Can't beat this price for an entire series. Highly recommend Rescue Me to everyone.

    The quality of the video is excellent and the show itself is fantastic. Drama and comedy. I agree that the packaging could be better but no problems so far. What I can't believe is that even though the icon cc is on the packaging there is no closed captioning. I can't believe studios don't include this on dvds. Perhaps on the later seasons they will be, but I am disappointed.

    I got this complete series DVD collection as part of the Deal of the Day. It was an unbeatable price, the lowest I could find, and reviews were very positive, so I bought it. I haven't watched it yet, since I am finishing to watch another series I own on blu ray.

    I'm not sure if this is available on tv subscriptions, but I wanted it on disc so I could watch it while exercising. It's good so far, although the language is quite filthy at times.

    The series itself is the best ever and my most favorite! Action, comedy, drama, fighting, smart azz lines! The packaging is less to be desired, but just be careful with the discs is all, the price can not be beat for this whole series.

    I never watched this series while it was on network TV even though I heard good things about it. So the complete series was on sale and I bought it...Glad I did as my wife and I both liked the series very much.

    This was one of the best shows ever put on TV. Hilarious with unbelievable drama mixed in. Denis Leary is an amazing writer and actor of the series. The box set for the price was an absolute deal.

    While Rescue Me veers into some rather soapy territory from time to time, the show mostly holds up. The whole series for 30 bucks was totally worth it.
