Six days after the episode aired, debate among TV critics, bloggers and fans about last week's ''Rescue Me'' has yet to subside. And the show's co-creator has even joined the online fray.
Loyal viewers will recall that last summer, Leary was at the center of an uproar over a now-notorious episode that culminated with Tommy Gavin, the tortured lout the actor portrays with such gusto, forcing himself sexually on his estranged wife, Janet Andrea Roth. I wish they were as angry at Bush as at me. But even longtime fans might find themselves thrown off by the first three episodes of this season. And Janet has given birth to a son whose father could be either Tommy or his brother Johnny, the victim of a contract killer last season. For Leary, that boils down to questions of faith. Where the hell has he been? But does any of this qualify as karmic payback? Dubious paternity is a serious issue in many places beyond an FDNY firehouse. Not coincidentally, Janet also raped Tommy in the aftermath of his attack on her.
