Denis Leary’s Rescue Me

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.


  1. I did a really bad thing and edited my post slug. I should be shot, but I did it five minutes after posting, hoping it wouldn’t show. Oops.

    The show regularly airs on Wednesdays at 10e/9c. Season Pass it, Rick.

  2. It got done this morning. I won’t try to think of when it gets aired because it tried to conflict with a lot of things. Thankfully, FX understands that people want to watch TV when they want to, so as a result they show their series in a variety of timeslots on a variety of nights. I understand it must not be the best in the world for their advertising, but it’s fantastic for fans. If only the major networks would learn and follow that model. Though even as I say that I remember that Law and Order has started following that model to an extent with USA (they show CI and SVU a week behind on a different night over on USA if I remember it correctly)
