Any fire fighters here enjoy watching this show? Personally I think it's the best thing on T.V. today.

It's just plain disturbing, but great acting and story lines. Almost too close to truth, because we all know a few people like the characters.

Definitely good, and disturbing (not a FF). This is why I always watch Reno 911 immediately afterwards.

Yeah, it's kind of like slowing down to look at a horrible car accident... you know you shouldn't, but somehow you just can't help yourself.

Never mind "Backdraft" "Ladder 49" "Towering Inferno".
Sadly enough "Rescue Me" is without a doubt the most accurate portrayal of any given firehouse in North America.

I really got into this show. I love it personally, mainly because I am a firefighter. Like Steve said, it is a pretty good portrayal of firehouses in America. Military firehouses are pretty much like this, they just have way more crap to deal with.

Funny thing is I had an ex-girlfriend who's father worked at a car dealership and all of the guys who worked there were exactly like the characters on the show.

So, I think it's safe to say that these bizarre caricatures are not exclusive to the fire fighting world. But then again, losing a car sale and losing victim in a fire are two totally different circumstances to deal with on a daily basis.
