Leave it to FX, and Rescue Me in particular, to go the extra mile. While other shows open their season with a bang, Rescue Me opens with a fireworks show.
After a disappointing fourth season, the comedy/drama about the FDNY got the green light for an extended season of 22 episodes. Last season was salvaged by the gracious end to the Gavin family AA meetings and the tragic finale that said goodbye to Tommy’s dad (Charles Durning). From the looks of things in this episode, expect a major rebound.
