    Post Rescue Me

    Just finished watching Rescue Me... Didn't see it as being a real hit. The show depicts firemen being something they're not. We are all not drunks who womanize constantly. I believe this show may make people think that fireman aren't the "hero's" people believe they are.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I dunno....I could match up just about every character on the show w/a guy on my job..I cant believe there is a FD out there where EVERY FF on the job is a posterboy for FF of the year..

    If youve seen cop shows...they show bad cops as well as the good ones...if the truth hurts us.....

    Thumbs up not bad..

    I thought overall the show was well done. I think just about every firefighter can relate to a character on the show or at least recgonizes a few traits. It's about time someone portrays firefighters as just human beings. I am intrigued and hope the show is around a while, warts and all.

    I dont think the truth is a bad thing, honesty is the best policy.

    Until we have robotic firefighters then I suppose we will have to admit we are human beings...at least most of us will.

    Hey WT, is there any way you can combine the 2 threads together?

    As for the show, I liked it and will be watching it every week if the other episodes are like the first. Some people were complaining about the foul language, but that's why they put the disclaimer at the beginning and flashed the TVMA rating a couple times......

    Unhappy MISSED IT

    I only got to see.. maybe the last 20 minutes or so of the second show. After all that waiting... LOL. But, we were first in on a 2 alarm fire, so I guess I can live with it.

    Guess I can't really form an opinion, based on the little I saw, it looked OK.
