Rescue Me: Minisodes begin June 24 (10:00PM ET/PT) on FX. L-R: Probie (Michael Lombardi) & Shawn (Larenz Tate) from “Fast,” one of the upcoming RESCUE ME minisodes on FX. CR: FX.


RESCUE ME minisodes start tonight and they come not a moment too soon.  It feels like forever since we’ve seen Tommy Gavin and the gang back on our TVs, and with the wait for new episodes even longer than that, it’s nice to have even 5 minutes with these guys.

The first minisode, airing tonight on FX, is called “Fast.”  The best thing about this one is that it features the banter and camaraderie that goes on between the boys of the firehouse (the only thing missing is Franco, but he’s back in #2 and 3).  The gist of it is that Sean is fasting in order to cleanse his body of toxins.  The other guys (Kenny, Probie, Larenz-Tate-Probie, Needles (Adam Ferrara), and Tommy), armed with fresh baked donuts, try to derail his fasting-plan.  It’s relaxed, funny.  It feels like a small peek into what goes on in an NYFD house.  Not over the top, like a lot of Season 3 and 4 tended to be.

Minisode 2 (“Fantasy”) involves Tommy and a few weird dream sequences.  Minisode 3 (“Criteria”) has the boys discussing their perfect bar / watering hole.  If these minisodes are a sign of what’s to come in the long-awaited 5th season, we can expect good things.
