What I'm Watching: Rescue Me

Rescue Me: Season 4, Episode 9 "Animal" (C-)

So Tatum O'Neal is finally back, but the return is not as exciting as anticipated. Why it has to be coupled with the return of Uncle Teddy is beyond me. This show is great at writing off characters; why is Uncle Teddy possibly still on this show? All this Janet/Sheila baby-thieving/selling garbage is getting worse by the minute, and I will not stand for much more of it. Besides the humorous sandwich reference, Tommy's encounter with the random woman is just plain odd, and the chief's anger towards him about his daughter seems uncharacteristic at best. I do not see Mike/Probie as the suicidal type, and I feel like more than just boredom would have to drive him to attempt it. Stretching all possible lines of believability is not a smart move for the show.
