Great new drama/comedy series from the BBC, 31 March 2002
Author: funkylad from belgium

The last few years we've seen alot of new drama/comedy series displaying the life of a young female and her friends, troubles and relationships (eg Ally McBeal, Heart and Bones). Although i quite like all of those, Rescue Me is somewhat special to my regard. It has the most special ability of getting in touch with you, to get yourself in touch with your own feelings. When a television show can do that, you know you are watching something good.
