The 13 episodes of the 2005 season rekindle the saga of Engine 62, a New York City firehouse whose men continue to cope with job-related stress and post-9/11 fears about their work. Denis Leary stars as Tommy Gavin, a not-particularly-noble fireman whose personal failings finally catch up with him in Season 2. After Tommy's drinking degrades his performance on the job and nearly kills fellow firefighter Franco Daniel Sunjata, he's banished to a firehouse outside of Manhattan. In addition to this humiliation, his estranged wife, Janet Andrea Roth, has disappeared with his kids, and his womanizing ways backfire when he discovers that his dead cousin's wife Callie Thorne is three months pregnant with his child. Thus, Tommy makes a decision to quit drinking, possibly helped along by the unsettling visions of Jesus Christ he sees every time he gets near a bottle of booze. As for the rest of his squad, Tommy's replaced for a short time by a fireman with a secret, Sully Oz's Lee Tergesen; Chief Reilly Jack McGee faces hard decisions about his wife's illness; "Lou" Shea John Scurti faces a harassment suit from Laura Diane Farr, who intensifies her relationship with Franco; Franco slips into painkiller addiction after recovering from his accident; and Mike the Probie Michael Lombarti reacts violently to a breakup with his girlfriend. Multiple tragedies strike Engine 62 in the season's final shows, "Happy" and "Justice," including a multi-alarm blaze, and a sudden, unexpected death. Sharp writing and realistic characters lend Rescue Me authenticity, both in spirit and detail. They also make it one of TV’s most compelling shows.

    More Tragedy more triumph

    The second season of Denis Leary and Peter Tolans series achieves something many find it hard to do, it topped the first season. While Leary is the star of the series, the rest of the cast more than holds up their end of the bargain, many of them shine (Diane Farr, Dean Winters, and John Scurti come to mind). As in the first season the show doesn't shy away from controversy or adult subject matter. As Tommy's life spirals more out of control you will find your self taken along for the ride. Highly recommended

    Sometimes suffers from identity crisis

    Denis Leary and Peter Tolan have created a realistic view of NYC firefighters, and sometimes that glimpse into the private world can be off-putting. Between the horrors of the job though, there are moments of sheer comedic brilliance. The only problem is that Leary is never sure what to focus on. The comedic storylines are stronger. This is the best season, in my opinion. Standout character: the fantastic John Scurti as Kenny Shea.

    This show ROCKS!!!

    This is one of the best shows on tv. The entire cast gels with one another. Denis Leary deserves an Emmy. Tommy is funny, complilcated & flawed. Run, don't walk to buy this!!
