As I posted on the .net forum, I think that Denis Leary’s Rescue Me is going to be a really, really good TV show. FX is airing it 3-4 times a week here in the first few weeks of the show to give non-TiVo users an opportunity to see it—probably betting on cashing in on buzz driving eyeballs—and if you like comedy/drama, it’s good stuff.
I watched the premiere of Rescue Me, and I think this is going to be a great show. There is language—what do you expect, Denis Leary’s involved!—but the storyline seems to be pretty good. The characters feel real, even if they’re quasi-stereotypical.
FX is showing the show 3-4 times a week for the first few weeks; I know they’re showing it tonight at 11e/10c/9m/8p. I’d give it a whirl if you like drama with comedic overtones.
