On the heels of the breakout theatrical release of Super Troopers 2, co-creators and stars Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme will be donning new uniforms in Tacoma FD, a half-hour comedy set in a firehouse in one of America’s rainiest cities. Light on blazes that need extinguishing, this crew keeps themselves entertained with creative competitions, friendly first responder rivalries, and bizarre emergency calls. Leading firehouse shenanigans in the 10-episode first season are Chief Terry McConky (Heffernan) and Captain Eddie Penisi (Lemme), alongside an eclectic crew played by series regulars Hassie Harrison (Southbound), Eugene Cordero (Black Monday, The Good Place), Marcus Henderson (Get Out, Homecoming), and Gabriel Hogan (Heartland).

PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:
· Eugene Cordero as Andy Parrish
· Gabriel Hogan as Ike Crystal
· Hassie Harrison as Lucy O'Malley
· Kevin Heffernan as Terry McConky
· Marcus Henderson as Granville "Granny" Smith
· Steve Lemme as Eddie Penisi

CREW INFORMATION:
· David Miner as EP
· Greg Walter as EP
· Kevin Heffernan as CRTR/EP
· Kyle Clark as EP
· Steve Lemme as CRTR/EP
The first episode is up On Demand.

I'm not expecting much but I set this to record when I saw that some of the BL guys were in it.

The BL bunch has made some funny stuff.
Not always, of course.
But I'll DVR this and see what's what.

Caught up on this today on the Tru Tv app. I like it. It’s got some good laughs. Doesn’t take itself too seriously.
Mack and Farva from Super Troopers play pretty well together

I'm still enjoying it and it's one of the rare TV shows my younger son will stop staring at YouTube long enough to actually watch.

I enjoyed the first few episodes, but have been busy so the episodes are piling up on my DVR. I’ll binge through them in the near future.

Of course it’s toned down a bit for TV, but I’d say it’s upper-tier when compared to the BL library. I guess this isn’t technically BL though since it is just two of them.

The running joke on how they pronounce “soft” still gets me.
