  • Tommy in the Heat, as Uncle gets the ball and Chain...

    And when you thought Sheila was dead and Tommy was only seeing her. Well, that is wrong and answered my question about it, because when they were at the deposition Tommy and the Lawyer saw him and the firefighter kissing and stuff.

    The hunt for Coleen is on and now that they have found him, I cant wait to see what Tommy does. Nice. For the humor part about the Spank-Bank, when Tommy's brother in law, has Janet in his Spank-Bank, that was crazy and funny to no end. As far as Janet is concerend, I think she needs to get a tighter grip on Coleen even though she is 18. Got to keep Tommy from killing everyone in NYC.
  • Dark and funny at the same time, as Rescue Me does so well!

    Powerful writing. Laughing & crying in the same episode! THAT is why I love this show. It makes you FEEL. Unlike a lot of shows these days that are shallow and leave you feeling like they've just sucked an hour's worth of intelligence out of your head, Rescue Me isn't afraid to explore the dark parts of human nature as well as the funny and inspiring. This episode contained a lot of that. Mike's mom asking him to kill her. Janet and Tommy arguing about whose immorality was worse and therefore to blame for Colleen running away. Teddy running out on his wife. A great show off to another awesome season!
  • Yeah well, you know, quite frankly, Rich, we could buy your girlfriend a beveled glass doorknob, and it would keep her mollified for at least a month.

    Sure, this episode was amusing and enjoyable. Sure, it had an ending that made the wait for next week hard to bear. But somehow I still don’t feel like season four has really started yet. It’s almost as though we’re just being entertained with shiny objects until things really get going.

    However, there were still plenty of good things that went on here. First of which, I’m really glad to see how happy Jerry’s been lately. I mean, when was the last time he’s been in this good a mood? Ever? And it’s nice to see him put Needles in his place. The firehouse really does need ya back, Jer.

    Eddie’s sheer joy at hearing of Tommy’s supposed deficiency was just great. I guess every dog does have its day. It’s also wonderful to see Teddy back, advising Tommy against drinking, but since he’s going to drink anyway to bring some back for Teddy. Not to mention he gave us some of the best limping I’ve ever seen.

    Mikey’s storyline has some potential too. Speaking as someone who watched as her mother teetered on the brink of death in a hospital for two months (with colon problems, no less), I can only imagine how Mikey must be feeling right now. For your own mother to ask you to kill her…there’s no way. All that you can do in that situation is be there for her and pray that she’ll get better. The doctor may be able to lose hope, his own mother may even be able to lose hope, but Mike knows that his mom is the Babe Ruth of moms. He can’t lose hope quite so easily.

    The spank bank scene was good. Not great, but good. Tommy’s expressions were just priceless, though. Of course, pretty much any time T and Garrity interact is golden.

    All in all, it’s just another day in the life for these guys. And that day is Tuesday.
  • A great episode.

    This episode was so good, and in my opinion it's one of the best episodes ever of Rescue Me. I really loved Mike's story line in this episode. I loved the scene where Mike is talking to the doctor about his mother. I thought that the doctor was so mean to Mike, but that scene was so funny. Michael Lombardi did such a good job in this episode. I also loved the whole round table conversation about all of the guys' in fire house spank banks. That whole scene was absolutely hilarious. All in all, this was a really great episode, and with episodes like this season four of Rescue Me is shaping up to be the best season yet.
  • Shaping up to be a great season!

    *Sheila, I freaking hate you! I hate hate hate you!!!

    *Okay, the scene with Richie warmed me up to him a little bit. I just wonder how he fits into Franco's future life on this show.

    *Maggie cracks me up. Porno. Spankbank, a phrase I never even heard of before! Geez! When this marriage falls apart, will they find a way for her to stay?

    *Go Jerry! Standing up to the jerks trying to tak your house!

    *And now Colleen ran away. Big freaking not a surprise. (That was my sarcastic voice.) But the "she'll be home in two months" line was priceless. *Teddy is not my favorite character. Let's see what they do with him this year.

    *Tommy staring at the vodka was strong.

    *He bought a $200 bottle of booze? (Having bought a bottle, I knew the cost before he paid for it.)

    *Teddy escaping the restaurant was priceless.

    *Oh, that's why he wanted the Blue!

    *I knew it was only a matter of time before we saw Johnny. I knew it was Johnny on the couch. But that was still awesome!

    *The guys around the dinner table! Excellent. The best part of the show, since day one!
