Tonight on FX, Rescue Me starts season number 5 at 10 p.m.
If you've never watched the show, you should. It's pretty good. In fact, not only is the show good, but the music is damn good too. You should check out the Rescue Me soundtrack.
Part of what makes it work, is that the core is really made up of Leary and his comic buddies. Take "Uncle Teddy," in real life, Leary's buddy and '80s Saloon Comic icon Lenny Clarke. If you've never seen the Comedy Central Roast of Dennis Leary, Leary tells a great story about Lenny running for Mayor of Cambridge, MA. Bruce's campaign slogan was "Fuck the Kennedys." His idea of publicity was to steal a bus and personally chauffeur people around. If you've never seen the video of Leary and Clarke in the Red Sox broadcast booth, click here. Good stuff.
