When Lenny Clarke started out on Rescue Me (yes I know he did a lot of stuff before the FX drama and was around before Denis Leary got his start), he was not the skinniest man on the show. Then as the show went on, he lost a lot of weight. But up until now I didn’t know the 60 year old had the abs of a man a 2/3 his age. Dang I will play a damsel in distress any day and have him rescue me. Yes I know he did not a play a firefighter on the show, but in my fantasy I will pretend he did.
Seriously how sick is his body.
Denis Leary was on Conan O’Brien’s TBS show yesterday and he told the host about the time he scared the Kardashians on an airplane. So much so they were screaming Rescue Me. Seems the actor/comedian has an issue with sleepwalking and he had a fit on a flight with them. So for a while he has wanted to apologize to them for freaking out. What took him so long, he was kind of hoping that they thought he was Willem Dafoe.
And that isn’t the first time he has pretended to be Dafoe, he also shared the story about the time he got an erection at a spa in a hot tub and two women walked in on him while his little Leary was standing up. Boy do I wish I was one of those women.

Denis Leary is not only an actor and comedian, he is also a musician and he has a new song out that he thinks should America’s new anthem. So listen to Kiss My A$$ and see if you think it should be the new Star Spangled Banner? I think it would be more fun to hear his song at the beginning sports game than the one we have heard all of our lives.
I can’t believe I never or forgot that I heard that Denis Leary has a song called Merry F*cking Christmas. Not only do I love it, but that is how I feel because I still have not done my X-Mas shopping and I am about the brave the retail world to do so. So as I struggle to find a parking space and wait over an hour in line, I will be humming and sometimes singing this song out loud. So if you are in the same boat as I am listen to this song and make sure to sing it aloud as you do your last minute shopping! I am sure others will join in with us as sing our Christmas Carole two days before this “joyous” holiday!
And when you get home, undress, down a full jar of Egg Nog, sit back and watch the full Denis Leary Christmas special. It will be the tension reliever that will sooth your sh!tty day!
Before Mike Lombardi worked with Tommy Gavin at Engine 62 in Rescue Me, he worked for Denis Leary in Contest Searchlight. How cute was the 25 year old actor with the longer hair in that 2002 episode?
BTW how many future Rescue Me cast members can you spot in that short?
Ever since I saw the first episode of Rescue Me, I said to myself this is one of the most mind blowing things to ever happen to television. Tonight at 10p on FX the show says goodbye, and it ends just as it began in so many ways.
I do not want to spoil tonight’s finale because it is so poignant you have to watch and breathe in every second as it happens. The first few minutes had me going through tissues like crazy as we find out what happens after last week’s nail biting final few minutes. And even though I went through a box of tissues during the episode, there was a scene that only this show could do that had me peeing in my pants.
To give you a hint how f*cking amazing and awesome this episode is, my dad called me when I had two minutes left to watch of the show and he heard me crying hysterically. I said to him I will call him back because I am watching the best series finale that has ever graced the air waves. He told me to tell him when it is on because he wants to watch it. I said, “have you ever seen Rescue Me?” and he said “no, but he would watch because if I am saying it is that f*cking fantastic he will want to watch it.” So if you are like me or you are like my dad make sure to watch 120 of the best minutes to ever happen to television.
Thank you to Denis Leary and Peter Tolan for creating this realistic and important show that gave me so many laughs and tears! I will never forget the penis measuring episode, it was my favorite Rescue Me episode until the final two.
To quote a singer from Jersey, Rescue Me goes out in a Blaze of Glory!!!
The moment we have been waiting for all season on Rescue Me happens tonight on FX at 10p and you are not going to want to miss Colleen and Shawn’s wedding! While her parents try to prevent her big day from being destroyed in a typical Gavin family fashion, it ain’t going to happen. Watch how the perfect day gets ruined over and over and over again, but the day will be saved by a very special moment you will never see coming.
Once the wedding is over, the final moments of the second to last episode of the show sets up what is going to happen in the beyond powerful series finale.
Get your tissues ready because you will be crying tears of joys for Colleen and Shawn, tears of laughter for what happens during their wedding and tears of sadness but you have to watch to see why.
This show is going out with a gigantic bang, so watch one of the very last episodes of one of the greatest written, acted and produced shows ever!
BTW I am so happy that the show didn’t end with the nuptials and ends the way it does. But I will tell you about that next week.
Tommy Gavin has had a lot of moments where he has said Rescue Me and most of them have been while he is fighting fires. Well tonight on FX at 10p he says something that will have him needing to be rescued from his big mouth. He will say something that will have you saying, “Oh sh!t” in slow motion. Once he says what he says, you totally know what is going to happen next to him and you can’t wait to watch it happen. You almost feel bad for him, but he is such a schmuck, that you just can’t.
Also on tonight’s show Maura Tierney returns t0 begis an arc that is very close to her heart. She will be playing a breast cancer patient and Tommy will be there support her. Over the next few episodes she will give an amazing performance doing something where life imitates art and she will wow you.
In a few weeks when Rescue Me airs its final episode, I will be crying like a baby. Not because of whatever ending they come up with, but because one of the greatest shows on TV has come to an end.
Tonight’s season premiere of Rescue Me on FX at 10p is bittersweet. I am so happy that the show is finally back, but I am sad because it is the last season premiere because this is the final season.
Rescue Me has been one of the best written and acted shows on television and tonight it has one upped itself. The show starts off with a pregnancy and an engagement and those events will change everyone’s lives. The Gavin Family has come up with another original way to combat their alcoholism, but in true Gavin way it will fail big time. While things are heating up all around in their personal lives, the one place it hasn’t is via fires and that has the firehouse going crazy with nothing to do.
Being the 9 final episodes of the show, some faces you didn’t expect to return will be back because Tommy Gavin has a way of making that work out. It is good to see them back on the show even it is one of their last appearances.
I am truly sad to see this show go, but I know it will go out in the best way possible. So whether you have watched the show from day one or this will be the first time you have ever watched it, make sure to add it to your viewing pleasure tonight and every Wednesday at 10p because you will be as enamored with this show as I am.
Denis Leary attended the Edwin Booth Lifetime Achievement Award Honoring Kevin Spacey and the comedian made a lot of funny faces for the camera. Even in pictures the Rescue Me star makes me laugh. There is just something about him that is so funny to me!
