Rescue Me was one hell of a compelling show, and comedian Dennis Leary more than proved his acting chops as firefighter Tommy Gavin. Now Mill Creek Entertainment gathers the entire series into one super-deluxe Blu-Ray set, and I’ll admit I’m drooling. Okay, I’m also setting aside Kleenex, as this show runs the gamut of emotions. Plus, who doesn’t want a Dennis Leary commentary track? You know that’s gonna be gold.
If you haven’t seen it yet, go forth. And if you’re a fan? Well, you’ve probably already ditched my page and hopped over to Amazon. I’m not mad.
