Critic Reviews for Rescue Me Season 6

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

It leaves the impression that last season's closer was a standard-issue TV gimmick rather than a dramatic game-changer that will set this series on track for the conclusion it deserves.

The heat couldn't be more intense if you opened the front door on a four-alarm fire.

If there ever was a show that captured the learned helplessness of the American male, this show is it.

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Welcome back, Rescue Me - over a year later, your sometimes lovable, sometimes frustrating combination of credible drama, adorable dude humor, and occasional self-righteousness is still intact!

Enough to keep me interested, but I don't know if the rest is quite up to snuff.

Jun 29, 2010 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Uneven but irreverent, Rescue Me manages to rescue itself, immersing us in the tumultuous firefighting life that is the reason we watch the show.

Jun 29, 2010 | Rating: B | Full Review…

The show's signature comedic/dramatic tone is prominent as ever and what keeps Rescue Me so great is its undying fearlessness to take on any topic, no matter how taboo.

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Rescue Me needs rescusing from itself and deliverance will soon come. Until then, fans of the series can enjoy the ride -- even if it sometimes feels like a rerun.

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

The show retains its ability to be both brilliant and maddening, sometimes in the same episode.

Overall, a great start.

Jun 29, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The series is off to a great start and it looks like we will be getting nothing shy of excellence for these last two seasons.

Jun 29, 2010 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The comic relief we have come to rely on in the macho camaraderie has more of a tinge of gallows humor this season, which isn't to say that Rescue Me feels like a show on its last legs, more like it's nearing its natural end.
