....is anyone else watching this? Dennis Leary was fun in "The Job", wish ida caught more of that one.

So, here, he plays an Irish firefighter, with a bit of a drinkin problem, and some haunting memories of 9-11. I'm only 2 episdoes in, but im hooked...obviously, im biased, as the subject material is mad appealing for me.

Just wanted to know if anyone else was into this one...wish i could find an mpeg of just the series intro.

:D Well, last night was the 12th episdoe, next week's the season finale!

 

For those interested, ive got a DVD with the first 10 episodes on disc, :D enjoyed this one too. Again, its not as serious a drama as, say, "The Shield", but if you enjoyed Leary's short-lived NYPD show "The Job", like i did, this one's really great.

 

Thank god, it just got signed for a second season. :D

 

One of the series' more Preacher-esque moments, when Tommy (Leary) talks to an Irish priest in a nearby cathedral about 9-11:

 

"My cousin, the priest, said its because its all apart of God's plan, like God's got a plan. Ya know what? There is a God...he's got awhole shitload of explaining to do.

yes, there's a lot of "shit" ing and a whole lotta sex, but not much boobalah. There's a gay black midget as of last episode, tho, and Denis Leary is the fuckin shit in this show.

 

I didnt realize it before, but he actually lost his cousin/best friend as a firefighter a few years back, so Leary has a vested interest in this kind of thing: he runs The Leary Firefighters assocation, raising money for fire departments to use better/safer equipment, its a really good cause: http://www.learyfirefightersfoundation.org/

 

Politics aside...again, its dark, but heavy on the comedy, and shows a lot of what life in the firehouse is like, rather than just glorifying/hero worship like say Backdrat, or what ive herad of Ladder 41 (that new travolta one). Its good to see some actual character, but man, goin into this season finale, there's mad :D !

PLEASE tell me you can burn me a disc of this! I managed to find 1-5 on torrents... but now I'm stuck and can't find anything else before seven. Tommy was getting his ass kicked by a bunch of accountants, last I saw, and I need to know what happens next, man!

 

Damn if this ain't like crack.

 

And I'll tell ya what... I've got iMovie and Toast on my computer... I'll see what I can do about making a proper VCD for each episode with a menu and chapters and stuff. Just help a brotha out here!

Well, DG, i got episodes 1-10 on a DVD (can you read that?), the last 3 on my drive, just debating if i should make em 3 seperate discs or just one more dvd, might do the later. Lemme know what format you can go for, and the menu thing sounds like itd be cool...i really wish FX would announce a season 1 set soon tho.

I can read DVDs, just can't write them.

 

I can make the menus, but either torrent the results or put them one to a CD.

 

How can I get these from you?
