    Thumbs up 'THE BRAVEST' What do you think ?

    After almost 9 weeks of not being able to see the show {It airs when I'm asleep...Got to rise early for work} I finally taped and watched last weeks episode with the show being in L.A. City and Boston. I found it to be pretty good...Best Show about Firefighters I've seen since 'EMERGENCY' {Now I'm Showing My Age}...Not really I'm only 30 but I'm an 'EMERGENCY' Fan. ~ We'l;l save that for another forum. ~ Anyway, Wondering what others think of the Show. I like it -- Sort of makes you feel like you're riding along with the featured company and with the vest cams you get almost right into the seat of the fire or rescue.

    Lets have your opinions:

    I look foward to tonights episode Although I have to tape it and watch it tommorow {Bronx Engine 75 and Jersey City Rescue 1 In Action}

    I all in all think its a great show,shows you how other cities or towns operate. Plus as you said it lets ya feel like your right there with the different camera angles they got goin there. Vest cam was a great idea, especially for the smaller fires where you cant see anything from the outside lets you get in there with the action. Also they did a great job handling the whole 9-11 situation with the FDNY portions of the show. Feels weird knowing your watching guys who left us so soon... The only complaint I have is that its on WAY TO LATE.. I mean 11:30 isnt entirely to late.. but its late for me especially when I Get up at 6am the next morning for school, But I tough it out and most of the time. Anyway, like I said before all in all its a awesome show.. and I hope to see it come on a little earlier....

    It just depends on where you are out in my neck of the woods it air's at 4PM on KNBC

    It's a great show, It's what alot of people in the fire service have been asking for, A show that gives an acurate portryal of the fire aervice, I enjoy watching it several weeks ago my cousin who is an LAFD Firefighrer was featured on the show

    I caught the back end of last night's episode, about Jersey City's Res1cuE. It was great! I thought the way they covered the incidents was phenominal. It was a great look at how departments do things. Can't beat realism... ain't it grand?!

    yeah, I agree with daysleeper. Realism works (for some reason the axe duel scene in Backdraft popped into my head as a contridiction when I read that :/). Though like Andrew and others said its at a bad time on a Sunday night, but its a syndicated show, better that then not being on at all I guess.
