Does anyone watch Rescue Me on the FX channel?? Seriously the best series on TV right now. I'm not just saying that because of the whole firefighter thing, because they really don't focus on tactics too much, which is fine because Hollywood always fucks that up anyway, so why bother? Dennis Leary is classic. The other actors are great as well, but the writing is fantastic!! The realism in the firehouse is on target, with the hazing and sarcastic ribbing and the implied heirarchy of the crew. Also, the family life is realistic. Its not impossible for firefighters to have great relationships with their significant others, but its often hard.

One thing that is great about the show is that they don't hold back on swearing or sex and they throw the middle finger at political correctness regularly. Its about time someone had the balls to create such a show on cable television. If you haven't seen it, check it out. It airs on Wednesday nights and re-runs several times through out the week.
