Goofs

Towards the end of season 3 when Tommy confronts Johnny's killer, he mentions that Johnny was 41. Johnny is later called Tommy's little brother. However, since Tommy and Janet met in high school and had a child then (Colleen) who in season 4 is 18, that would put Tommy and Janet both in their mid-30's. See more »

Funny, realistic and entertaining drama
26 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most funny, realistic and entertaining dramas around currently (2005-2006). Watch it from the very first episode and see how each firefighter has a background and a story. See how well the firefighters get on as a team get on from day 1. See how September 11th has affected their lives. I especially love Denis Leary's character's brother who works as a New York Cop. Such a cool guy.

Anyway, definitely worth an hours watch every week! And, of course, Denis Leary has written and acted yet another brilliant piece of work again just like his 2001-2002 show called 'The Job'. My Score = 10/10. Let's hope this one doesn't get cancelled folks!
