One of the best scenes on television in awhile

If you haven’t figured it out, Rescue Me is one of the best shows on television.  Tuesday night’s episode may have contained one of the best scenes in modern memory.

For those that aren’t familiar with the show, Rescue Me is about a New York City firehouse, with most of the show centered around an immensely flawed firefighter played by Denis Leary.  The show is at times absolutely hilarious, (don’t watch if you are easily offended) while still keeping an amazing dramatic kick.

The scene from this week’s episode involves Leary in a bar talking to his deceased family (dad and brothers) about actions that were taken during and after 9/11.  It might not have the same impact if you haven’t been watching the show for the last four seasons, but it doesn’t take away from the powerful impression left by Leary’s passion.
