    I agree with that, however, I beleive this show goes way over the top in terms of the "flaws". I fully understand that it is a TV ahow, and without thet "drama", it wouldn't be watched, but certainly waht is displayed in that show is more likely the exception as compared to the rule at most houses.

    And yes, the insertion of the firefighter getting drugs from the medic does truly bother me. That is certainly an exception.

    Like it or not there will be folks that watch this that will take what they see and label it as typical firehouse behavior because this show has made thier perception reality.

    Sometime you just make it so easy, in fact this is just too damn easy I am going to pass up the chance.

    My wife hates it when I watch these shows and throw out MST3K style comments (Be sure to move her spine around a lot!) over the top of it.

    Already posted on the entertainment forum, but more folks here:

    Just watched it, what a steaming pile of dung. The only part that felt real was the guy talking about his foreclosure and non-existent sex life. THAT was a funny scene.

    The commercial fire scene with the guy hanging over the hole, I was waiting for the "You go, we go" just like Backdraft.

    And they had to make one of the female paramedics gay, so they can fit in with every other hollywood show. I know it's fricking TV, but the same medic does a pleural decompression and a pericardiocentesis, plus gets held at gunpoint, in the first episode? What's left for season three?

    The BC comes to a fire from a boxing bout? And do you think the rescue co. Lt could shave? He shows up at the hospital with 12 o'clock stubble and a leather jacket looking like Mad Max. Just make it stop...

    No immobilization on a pedi patient with obvious head trauma, medic shoves cot to doctor and walks away at ER... The list of dumbness goes on and on.

    Yeah, and I really liked when they went to the girl with the head injury in the car and said "turn your head and look at me". I would be ashamed to be their technical advisor. He's definitely no Jim Page.

It probably won't win any awards but it's not a bad show or anything. I'm just glad that there's a show about firefighters on TV.

    Week 2 sucked.

    More drama and even poorer technical content.

    Guess it's back to watching Duck Dynasty with my wife.

    Maybe she wants you to deliver her a "package"?

    Or she could just be turned on by brown.

    Hmmm, I always wondered about that saying about lipstick on a pig. Now I know.

    That was more of a good guy bad guy thing, the "faceless" monsters vs. the human heroes.

    My EMT professor and I were joking about this.

    "When did you want to be a firefighter?"
    "Since the day I was born"
