"Rescue Me" recap: Season 7, Episode 2: "Menses"

The first few episodes of the final season of "Rescue Me" are strong, maybe the show's strongest since Season 1. Why? The fact that series co-creators Peter Tolan and Denis Leary have a firm end date probably has something to do with it; there's nothing like a final deadline to raise the stakes for a show. But another factor -- maybe coincidental, maybe not -- is the deft way that "Rescue Me" is integrating the firefighters' work and home worlds.
