I think they went too far when Tom’s girlfriend turned gay, shacked up with that psycho bitch that beat her up, and then his son was killed by that drunk driver. At that point I quit watching it. It had gone from really sarcastic, biting, funny to just plain “let’s see how much crap we can slug out on tv and still keep the show on the air.”

It is getting a bit soap-opera-y, but then I never saw season one.  I don’t mind watching Denis Leary get more and more self-indulgent, but that’s just me—especially when it’s funny.  But maybe FX should leave the shock for shock’s sake stuff to Nip/Tuck…

Actually I think this season has been really good.  I was tried of seeing Tommy self-distruct.  Its a bit soap opera-ish but what show isn’t?  I love the Rescue Me spin they put on things.  Like Tommy viciously beating his brother, a cop, and having no one think thats anything but right, INCLUDING THE BROTHER!  I loved Denis Leary’s first show, The Job, and I love Rescue Me…
