I thought it had potential but its going after a crowd I guess I'm not part of. Maybe if was sucking on a bong this might seem amusing (but then again so is an infomercial) but its not worth the effort to save this show. I ended up removing it from my record list last night. I'm not sure if it is the writing or the acting but it just never got funny which I was hoping for more comedy than drama. I don't care about social barriers - I just want to laugh - this didn't make me laugh. This show has gone down hill comedy wise VERY fast for a new show.
The show is clearly doing it's job -- it's pissing off all of the uptight pricks.
The show is not about being "realistic"; it's about being funny and breaking social barriers. I love it!
It's about a group of 3 EMTs who have difficulties in their personal lives and frequently have to mix their personal and work lives. They have each others' backs and serve as both professional and personal support to each other.
The show pushes the envelope. It has naked butt cheeks, plenty of profanity, mistakenly walking in on old people having sex, and even shows the after-effects of the EMTs mistakenly viewing porn with animals!!
My mother always told me you can tell when you are doing something right when you are pissing off the right people. In the case of this show, uptight conservatives get pissy, but by comparison to European TV, this show is not all that bad. European TV frequently has naked same-sex kissing, plenty of profanity, and lots of drug references.
The show is on cable TV at 10:00 PM. Cable channels do not have to abide by the same standards of censorship that network channels like NBC do. If you feel the show is too dirty and profane for children, why are your children up at 10:00 PM watching TV?
I have been in EMS 21 years this 2014 and I can honestly say that we don't act like that in or out of the field! This show does nothing to show how EMT's really save lives while on duty and off! I was excited to see this show when it first came out! Now my hope it just goes away not to return! To all that have watched it and also think it shouldn't be on the air say something! I really was put back completely on the last episode when the Gay EMT was having sex with some man in a backroom of a Church during a wedding! Totally inappropriate for TV! I hope that it gets canceled and if it doesn't I will not watch it ever again! Such a waste I had higher hopes for this show! Dennis Leary your a tool! If you had any respect for what we do you would ride out with us and see what it is really about! The storyline was mostly about their lives outside of work! Most of us are lives are our work! Many of us have missed holidays and kid's birthday's! You made us look like a bunch of horney loser's!
Low class, low ball, low brow. Rescue me had redeeming qualities, redeeming characters and depth. This is filth veinly disguised as comedy. Anything for a paycheck now Denis Leary--this is your legacy to your children. my dad brought this material to America's television
