Rescue Me: Season 3 (2006)



Critic Consensus: Rescue Me continues to hose down its scandalizing drama with relieving doses of humor, but the series' treatment of women has become increasingly worrisome.

Critic Reviews for Rescue Me Season 3

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

A bracing mix of raw hurt and loopy comedy, Rescue Me is never in danger of sliding to boredom.

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

There are so many layers, so many brilliant lines, so many perfectly placed pop-culture references that it's worth watching these episodes a couple of times.

Dec 12, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Every so often the bitterness is blasted away with tart, smart humor.

Dec 12, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

I resent that Rescue Me has put viewers into a position in which examining a pivotal point in this season requires the deconstruction of a sexual assault. The show already has a terrible reputation for its portrayal of women. Now this.

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

It's certainly not a perfect show, but the characters are unforgettable. Over the past three seasons, it's been one of the best hours on TV.

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Before this show I never would have thought Leary would be the kind of actor to pull off the mix of tragedy, pathos and dry caustic wit that is Tommy Gavin.

May 30, 2006 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

It's one thing to create a show about a troubled alcoholic with rage issues. But it's another thing entirely to make the lead character of the show a scary sociopath who assaults women.

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

It has moments of truth and insight, humor and affection. Its missteps are so maddening because it is so often very good, making its flaws all the more readily apparent.

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Viewers have hit the summer trifecta: The best actor playing the best character in the best show on basic cable.

Dec 12, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

The thing to remember about Rescue Me is that even when it can't fully recover from its own ambition, it never shrinks from the task of surpassing its own brilliance.
