Season Info

The lives of the men who comprise New York City Fire Department Ladder Company 62 are explored, both in the firehouse and at home, focusing largely on Tommy Gavin (Denis Leary), who often sees the ghost of his cousin, firefighter Jimmy Keefe, who was killed in the 9/11 attacks, as well as the haunting visages of various people he failed to save over the course of his career.

Critic Reviews for Rescue Me: Season 1

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

Rescue Me truly is ambitious. It may or may not fulfill its evident promise every week, but viewers should exult that another series is at least grasping for greatness.

San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic

Rescue Me is a daring, unflinching show and it is unafraid to expose the not always pretty particulars of firehouse culture and the more fallible side of those we count on to save us.

New Yorker
Top Critic

As perfect as Leary is in some ways to play the wounded and angry working man in midlife crisis, it is a one-note act.
