Rescue Me Debuts Its Minisodes

Thanks (or no thanks) to the writers' strike, FX's Rescue Me won't be back on the air for its fifth season till Spring 2009. But Denis Leary and company weren't about to make fans go that long without at least a little taste of New York firefighter life.

On Tuesday, FX premiered the first of 10 Rescue Me "minisodes," bite-sized bits of the show (all approximately five minutes long) that are meant to tide fans over till next year. Each minisode will premiere at 10 p.m. on Tuesday for the next nine weeks; 10 minutes later, they'll show up on Crackle, and by the next day they'll spread through various other online video sites.

The first minisode, "Fast," finds Sean Garrity struggling to maintain his cleansing fast in the face of Lou's doughnuts. If you're a fan, will it be enough to get you through to next year? To watch "Fast" for yourself, just

Ok here it goes... I think Dennis Leary is one of the hottest males alives. Geenbean, trust me I get you... I have THE guy crush on him (also I have a crush on Tommy and Kinda love him too) it's funny because my dad is six years Younger than Dennis... I'd be faithful to Dennis if I wasn't infatuated with Hugh Laurie too, but anyways my future husband is Dexter Morgan. My former crushes are the sweet guy from criminal minds and Vincent from Law and Order CI I believe I just like dysfunctional guys :$

I love Rescue Me, and am disappointed it won't be back until next year. I agree with hunterme that it is a thought-provoking, and really entertaining, show. Denis Leary is also my random, unexplicable, don't ask me why crush. I also love Tommy, even though he's an ass. These minisodes are just not gonna do the trick!

Rescue Me is one of those shows that just sucks you into the plot line and has you thinking well beyond the show. However, I was disappointed with the 4th season. As much as I was hoping for a summer return, I hope the plots get better as a result of the long break between the 4th and 5th season.
