As Jane reminded us here earlier, FX Network's prickly dramedy Rescue Me returns for its fifth season tonight, with a full order of 22 episodes on tap for us. Rescue Me tends to make every other drama seem a little anemic, don't you think, and it's Denis Leary's sexy and searing portrayal of troubled firefighter Tommy Gavin that sets this one on fire.
Here's an early review from today's New York Times -- can't wait to see Michael J. Fox in this exciting and often daring series!
Rescue Me airs at Tuesdays at 10pm on FX. Visit the Rescue Me website for great extras and more info.
