Guess Who's Gonna Start Watching RESCUE ME?

The gays are coming Denis Leary, The Gays Are Coming... This hotness just started getting it in the rear so this gay's gonna start watching one of TV's most talked about shows... finally!

The gays rally together ya know! Some say it takes a village, I say it takes a gaggle of gays.

Speaking of gays, Ausiello's got the scoop on this gay development:

Question: Based on last night's Rescue Me, I guess Probie is the big gay surprise you've been hinting at. — Craig

Ausiello: Yes, he is. But exec producer Peter Tolan cautioned me (via my colleague, Bruce Fretts), against slapping a label on him. "Probie is a character who has been searching for love — and in many cases, in the wrong places," says Tolan. "What he finds is not love but companionship and sexual release. But he’s a confused guy, and I don’t think he’s gay. The funniest conversations those characters have is about how they’re involved in a sexual relationship but they’re not gay. There’s been an unhealthy fixation on our show with homosexuality, and I don’t know where it comes from, frankly. When you have a show about men, there’s always going to be a homoerotic current that somebody’s going to pick up on, whether it’s there or not. Honestly, the story line came out of a childish delight at discomfiting Michael Lombardi [who plays Probie]. Once we committed to it, we thought, well, now we’ve got to protect our character and do right by him and let’s really make this plausible." But back to discomfiting Michael Lombardi — wait until you see next week's episode. All I'll say is Probie and his roommate decide to reenact Vincent Gallo and Chloe Sevigny's "legendary" scene from The Brown Bunny.


  • Welcome aboard, Dan. It's one of those shows that you think you're not supposed to like, but it's so damn entertaining and funny. Plus, the fire chief's son is also gay. He's not a regular but that storyline has figured in the last two seasons. And, of course, the guys are hot!

  • I know you read my recap with glee; you can also see a screencap of the scene on TV Squad. Snuggle!
