You've Got To Watch This Show

Just got done watching the penultimate episode of Rescue Me, season 2.

The finale is next Tuesday at nine PM.

It is the funniest yet saddest, most real yet surreal, most gripping, most perfectly written show EVER.

Denis Leary is a genius. Second to none. The cast is amazing. Tatum O'Neal showed up tonight, joining Charles Durning as the bigger names on the cast. Every character is flawed, yet every character has strengths. Every character makes you mad, yet every character makes you laugh. They're all villians, and they're all heroes.

It's what television should be. Mike Chiklis' "The Shield" is right up there with it.

Amazingly (and ironically) they're both on Fox-owned FX. So while O'Reilly and that sickening Sean Hannity are interviewing and fawning all over Family Television Council members on a regular basis on Fox-owned Fox News, Fox-owned FX is talkin' dirty and showin' stuff with Rescue Me, The Shield, and Nip/Tuck.

Nobody plays both sides of the fence like ol' Rupert.

Okay, I'll give you Rescue Me, but how many times have we argued about The Shield? That show sucks. Chiklis is a wuss.

And Nip/Tuck is a chick show.
