Rescue Me

Y'know, I simply cannot get myself to like this show.

Lawd knows I'm trying. I like Dennis Leary. I like the show's concept. I like what he's trying to do for firemen.

But every time I sit down to watch, I can only take about twenty minutes of Gavin's sledge-hammer before I'm in complete "Oh, for Pete's sake" mode. After that, bludgeoned into submission, I suppose, I usually doze off.

I dunno, maybe it's a dilution thing. This show reminds me of what Hill Street Blues would have been like had it been all-Belker all the time. You can only spend so much time inside one person's head, especially if it's a screwed up one, before you need to take a breather.

I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only one who can't watch it.
