anyone seen this? I watched this new show last night for the first time.. stars Dennis Leary. I enjoyed the show quite a bit. He's pretty much maximum Dennis Leary here.. a total exaggeration of a lot of the characters he's played over the years. The thing that surprised me, was the language! I thought I was watching something on HBO. I thought those cable channels like USA and Bravo and A&E had the same rules as network tv. I was really surprised because I thought F/X was like those other channels. Maybe it's because they're cable-only and it was after 10pm? I dunno. I was just suprised to hear such language.. (not offended, fwiw)

Anyway, I thought the show was pretty good. I don't think there's been a show that's focused on "post 9/11 life" quite in this way. And it's about Firemen, those who were effected the most. Very well done.
