Rescue Me (Season 4 Premiere) 6/13/07

"Babyface"

(episode synopsis w/ very minor spoilers below)

Spoiler:
Janet has given birth to a baby boy---whom she fears prefers Tommy to her. But Tommy has a bigger problem: He's suspected of starting the beach-house fire. Meanwhile, Jerry's son asks him to be his best man at his commitment ceremony; Richie wants Franco to marry Natalie; Lou and Theresa get distracted in church; and the volunteer firefighter (Jennifer Esposito) who rescued Tommy from the beach house takes an interest in him---and isn't shy about letting him know.


Now that The Shield thread is pretty much dead for the year, let's start the Rescue Me discussion a day early, shall we?

Really excited for this to return. It's been far too long. FX needs to start making their seasons a little longer.

So, my question is - after 3-4 years, is Probie still a "probie?" I've actually wondered this for quite a while now.

I really enjoyed the first two seasons of Rescue Me, but for some reason I thought Season 3 was terrible. It almost completely killed my interest in the show. I'm ready to give it another chance. Hopefully things are better this time around.

The first half of Season 3 was great... then it started wandering around aimlessly.

I'll take an aimless Rescue Me over a lot of other stuff, especially in the dead of summer.

Well I certainly did not mean to imply that I wouldn't be watching. I love this show.

I wonder what's going to transpire with Sheila? She goes from beging obsessed with Tommy to being a wanna be Lesbian and then back to being a psycho obsessed with Tommy.

If I remember correctly, isn't Sheila the one who caused the fire?

Looking forward to the shows return, one of my favorites on television. In my top 2 or 3, next to Six Feet Under.

Yup. She drugged him up (again) and started it when he was passed out.

This is killing me. My roommate never watched the show, but I started him on the DVDs back in late April, and he loves the show but we're only halfway through season 3 (watching them all in order again is awesome, by the by), so I'll have to wait at least another couple of days with tonights ep sitting on my DVR. Ah, sweet torture.

Ditto. I'm getting my GF caught up on Season 3 but we won't get finished with it until the weekend. I gotta resist tonight's premiere until then! Boo!

Keep the faith, brother. I'm planning on booze to ease the pain, myself.

Sweet, I had forgotten it was back. I think probie is called probie until some other new guy shows up.

First half was good, but second half felt like it slowed down a bit - the dream about tom and ed fighting was great though.

Good to have the show back!

OMG! Great premiere, this is my favorite FX series and defiantly one of my top 5 tv shows - top 3 currently running.

What's the song that played when they all slid through the tilted floor into the fire?

I thought Sheilah was dead? I mean the stuff about the life insurance and her son being without a mother. Why would there be so many questions about the fire if she were alive to answer them (even if she lied they would still be better than "I can't remember")?

Is she another ghost?

Man how I missed this show. I had almost forgotten how it is my favorite show on television. This episode easily restored that memory.

I can't for the life of me remember Sheila getting Tommy to sign anything last season.

Anyway, pretty good opener. Franco's girl's brother is frickin' hilarious.
