3.5. At one point the never-ending euphemisms and descriptions about what those boys do with their precious 'baskets' was starting to grate. I am sure it is super realistic, after all, my main experience with firefighters comes from watching Rescue Me, which ALSO spends an awful lot of time on that subject. But then it all clicked nicely, and turned into a super sweet romance, with some real depth and humor. Tommy getting some love and acceptance in the gay bar after his horrible beating! Sniff. Griff was forced to tackle some weighty issues, and not just the giant ham/beercan/honeybadger in his pants.
