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!!!
