It does exactly what it says on the tin.
7 September 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

"Rescue Heroes" are heroes who rescue folks in peril around the world, any time, any place, anywhere (it's the right one, it's the light one, it's Martini... sorry, I got carried away); think "Thunderbirds" with women more heavily involved and music like the theme from "Third Watch," or "Emergency" with women more heavily involved and without the hospital bits.

The show's watchable for sure, but the characters don't exactly corner the market in personality - their names are the most distinctive things about them (Ariel Flyer, Billy Blazes, Roger Houston [the team's equivalent of John Tracy], Jake Justice etc.) - and the show is based on a line of Mattel toys, which is a mark against it from the off. (Not that toy-based cartoons are intrinsically bad; witness "Mighty Max.") And as for those little tips at the end of each story (now upped to two in the newer shows - the first season had one story per episode)... I thought the days of tacking advice onto the end of cartoons ended with Filmation. But it's still better than (insert Japanese-game-based cartoon of your choice here, except "Cardcaptors").

And remember, think like a Rescue Hero. Think safe.
