"Rescue Me" on FX--catch me up, please.

I missed the first episode and a half. The FX site doesn’t really help too much. Can someone bring me up to speed a little bit? Thanks.

Here’s the official website.
It gives a description of all the episodes.

Err, if you’d read the OP you’d have noticed that he already linked to that site and said it was not very helpful.

I’m in the opposite situation: i saw the first episode, and then lost my cable connection. Which sucks because I was v. interested in the show.

Here’s another thread on ‘Rescue Me’
Maybe someone there can help you out.
