Denis Leary is the man. He can mix drama and comedy like no one else, and 'The Job' is a fine example of that. I never had the opportunity to enjoy this show when it was on ABC, but now thanks to DVD I could watch it and it got me totally hooked. 'The Job' is basically a comedy about a bunch of cops in New York City (I know, I know, there're lots of tv shows with the same premise but it gets better) who get involved in a hell of comedic and moronic situations.
Fans of Leary would see that 'The Job' is kind of a pre-quel of 'Rescue Me' (if that’s possible) and exhibit some likeness and even has a similar cast of actors.
A total of 19 episodes of a great show cancelled way before its time. Rest in peace 'The Job'.
