Whats so wrong with the show? It's a soap opera - I would be surprised if any guy DID like it. It's just like E.R. or any other network drama. And you guys are concerned that a guy needs a shave? I think it's a pretty harmless representation of the CFD, and I'm sure no real members of the department much care how they are portrayed on a T.V. drama.
By the way, is there any firefighting shows you guys like? At least the guys in Backdraft seemed to have fun. Ladder 49 was a pack of moody crybabies who took themselves WAY too seriously. Who'd want to work with them?
