This release is going to be a bit upsetting to anyone that bought the two halves of season 5 separately. I’m glad I held off, as the combined halves are selling for the same price as one of the half season sets. I know why they do stuff like this; but I don’t know why they don’t care about enraging the fans of the show.

Before I review the season, I feel the need to let potential buyers know that this season 5 is merely a compilation of the dvd sets for season 5.1 and 5.2. Not just the discs are the same, but the actual packaging for these sets, including the covers are included as well. Essentially this is just a large cover over the two sets previously available. So, if you have the other sets, there’s nothing knew. Similarly, if you have 5.1, better stick with getting 5.2 when its on sale (if its still available). However, if you don’t have either, this is the way to go, even though it’s a slightly clunky packaging.

As to the show, it feels like a return to form in many ways. Not that season 4 was bad, it just felt like the show was starting to show some signs of aging. Season 5 really ups the ante, and makes the show feels fresh again, something difficult for a show five seasons in its run. I was shocked by Michael J. Fox’s performance, definitely out of character of his usual role, and rather impressive. He provided a great foil for Dennis’s character, and was very fun to watch. I also felt the writing was stronger, giving the characters more interesting stories, and were generally speaking a lot of fun. Overall, I recommend season 5 as a whole and recommend it to fans of the show, especially those who thought season 4 was a little more disappointing.

I came on Rescue Me a bit later than most people. I only started watching last month, but thanks to the miracle that is Netflix I have watched to the end of season five. Now I am asking myself “Why did I wait so long to start watching this show?” The show is definitely one of the more solid shows on television today. It’s no surprise that this show is on FX and not one of the big three networks (Four, I guess, if you count Fox). They’re tackling issues that most networks, other than cable, wouldn’t even touch. The acting is solid all the way through. A lot of the times when a show has a lot of different players one or more of the characters gets left out when it comes to development. However, the writers (Leary being one of them) does a great job fleshing out the characters and making sure that none of them become two-dimensional cut outs. At some points in the show, especially when Tom is talking to his dead friends, the show almost feels like we are seeing a stage production which help to heighten the emotions both the characters and the audience are feeling.

From the beginning credits to the end credits, Rescue Me is a solid show well worth every one’s time. It’s a shame to learn that the show is being cancelled after next season. Apparently, there are not enough viewers to keep the show going. Again, it’s a darn shame, but I can understand why the viewership dropped. A show like Rescue Me requires that the audience become involved with what is happening on screen.You become emotional invested not only in what Tommy is doing, but the other characters as well. Other shows on television require very little from their audience. In fact, most shows cater to the most common denominator of Americans. And sadly to say, those shows are the ones that usually have the high numbers and keep getting renewed season and season.

I don’t think that had I watched from the very first episode the show would have stayed on the air. However, I could have told a couple of people how great the show was and in turn, if those people watched the show, they could have turned other people on to it. It’s a snowball affect. Weirder things have happened. Look at Family Guy.

The only problem that I have with the show are the female characters.There is not one stable female in the whole show. Not a single one. Sheila is straight off her rocker. If anyone is a candidate for therapy it’s Janet. Then they all blame Tommy Gavin (Leary) for what’s going on. For example, Sheila and Janet both wanted to have sex with Tommy, no strings attached. However, when Tommy tries to get a little more serious with Janet she says no and that it won’t happen. A scene later she’s telling him to decide if he wants to be with her or Sheila. Wow, talk about bipolar. Sheila is just as guilty as Janet in the “Let’s be crazy and blame everything on Tommy” category. Nothing that they say or do jibes with what has gone on in the show. Sheila says that he is a horrible, self-centered person, but it’s Janet that drugged him on more that one occasion ( I still want to know if he is every going to find out about that).Heck, not even the children are balanced. The only female character that is somewhat balanced was Uncle Teddy’s wife, but the writers killed her off. I wonder what kind of relationship the writers have had with women in the past that they now write all women as screwed-up, crazy, and mentally unhinged. I haven’t seen season six yet, but I hope he kicks all the women in his life to the curb.

Until, season six stand back 200 feet.

This show is the one of the best written shows ever and will go down in time as a classic. I have all 5 seasons on DVD and would watch it over and over again!

I’ll just add, hats off to the genius who designed the outer box. You pick it up, the two inner packs fall out the open bottom.
