It’s going to be a good night. My favorite TV show is having its season premier (Tuesday night at 10 PM on the FX channel) and I’m leaving in a few minutes to go watch it with a friend who also loves it.
She and I have been into this show since its beginning six seasons ago. And honestly, I would never have expected someone her to like this show. She’s an erudite person, is quite refined, and teaches at our school. I was surprised that she enjoyed such a raunchy, gritty production. (Although she did have some questions for me at the beginning. “You can stand up doing that?”)
The dark comedy/drama focuses on firefighters in NYC who are dealing with the aftermath of 9/11. The show will wrap up next year, just in time for the 10th anniversary of the tragedy.
The show centers around Denis Leary who plays Tommy Gavin, a flawed, caustic, alcoholic fireman whose reckless bravado is part of the reason he’s such an exceptional firefighter. I’d want him at my back.
Or Daniel Sunjata. He loves me, you know.
Uh, oh ~ time to go. Have a great night, all!
