"Rescue Me" recap: 7x3 "Press"

Men are from Mars, women are from Venus -- and when they talk on the phone, they're divorced by a split-screen. We learned this from 1960s-era romantic comedies, and "Rescue Me," of all the damned shows in creation, reminded us yet again in last night's episode, "Press." Andrea warning Tommy not to come home too early, Colleen pouring liquid bubblegum into the anxious Shawn's ear as they planned their wedding -- these conversations and others were separated by an actual, graphic divide, a sharp black line bisecting the screen and putting the men and women into actual, observable boxes.
