"The third, and arguably best, season of Rescue Me may have treaded on familiar territory, but it worked out with spectacular results nonetheless. As the season begins, Tommy (Denis Leary) is once again seperated from his wife (Andrea Roth) who still holds him responsible for the death of their son, while Tommy's uncle (Lenny Clarke) enjoys his time in prison for murder. Jerry (Jack McGee) copes with his wife's debilitating mental health, Sean (Steven Pasquale) gets in way, way over his head with Tommy's crazy sister (Tatum O'Neal), while Franco (Daniel Sunjata) gets involved with a vendictive older woman (Susan Surandon) who plans on making him pay one way, or the other. The main storyline of this season though is the love triangle between Tommy and his wife, as well as his cop brother (Dean Winters), which naturally as one would come to expect, doesn't end well for anybody involved. The season reaches it's boiling point (literally) as the crew appears to go their seperate ways, and Tommy lands a golden opportunity to run away with Shelia (Callie Thorne), and everyone's future comes into question. While there aren't as many surprises and shocks in this season as there were in the second, the third season of Rescue Me features plenty of great moments, as well as great guest roles from Sarandon and Marissa Tomei, who make the most out of their screen time. Leary is great as well once again, while the rest of the cast performs well to boot. All in all, Rescue Me pis undoubtedly the best original show to come out of FX since The Shield, and here's even more proof."
Best Original Show In The History Of Cable TV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"I could give you a detailed synopsis of season 3 but the previous reviewer did a god job and there is no need to say it again. What I will say is if you are looking for a show that can make you cry, laugh, and feel fuzzy inside, all in one episode, then this is the show for you. In my opinion Rescue Me is the best original show I have ever seen on cable television, possibly all time. Rescue blows The Shield completely away.
The actors in this show are phenominal, most are actors not seen anywhere else, but everyonce in a while a huge actor will make an appearance or two. But every actor plays their part exceptionally well. Dennis Leary is the star of the show and his acting is way beyond any expectations I ever had of him.
As the previous review stated, this season does not having the shocking moments but it has just as much if not more intensity than the other two combined.
This is by far the best show on TV!!!!!"
Brilliant, absolutely brilliant!

"I re-watched season 3 and this show deserves every award possible. I loved seasons 1 & 2, and the 3rd doesn't disappoint. And best of all it is so FUNNY. Definitely the funniest season yet. I laughed so much in the first half of this season, which was a nice complement to some of the really heavy intensity of season 2. "I might need a sandwich...Mrs. Turbidy"
Denis Leary is a god. Not just a brilliant producer, comic, writer, but his acting is just stellar. And I don't know if anyone could ever top the performance of Steve Pasquale as Garrity. His comic timing is impeccable and he is 100% convincing as one of the stupidest but most harmless guys in the world. He was really at the top of his game in Season 3. He had great material to work with but his delivery is top notch. All the characters are just such a mess, but it's never taken to a level where it seems ridiculous and unbelievable. And the fact that the women are just as much a mess as the men makes it even more believable, it's not just about a bunch of firefighters afterall. It's also about the women in their lives and how dysfunctional all of their relationships are. I knew a couple like Tommy and Janet once, and it's scripted here to perfection. The johnny and janet plot line was a bit over the top for me at first, but then it was handled so well with Angela that it became believable. And at times i felt like the Probie sexuality issues were a bit cliche, like the writers felt they needed to have a storyline like that at some point in the show. But it all works. That's the brilliance here..no matter what they do, it works. I was nervous that the seasons would get progressively worse and more contrived like most series do, but not this one. Not yet. And hopefully we can enjoy many more stellar seasons to come. No matter what happens down the road, Denis Leary needs to always be creating and performing!
