Will miss the show. Was one of the greatest. Just now got my husband into it these last few weeks and we are getting the dvds.
Looking forward to Denis Leary's next project but there will always be a special place in my heart for #62. Being from New York and having a Dad that was a volunteer fireman when I was growing up, gave the show special meaning also.

How can anyone say the finale sucked I've watched every episode the show ended true to its name tommy was truly rescued when he didn't drink she. He was typing his report... Anyone that was a true fan could read into that and believe he is a rescued

The show lost its way and just became too unbelievable. Terrible ending to a terrible last two seasons. Honestly I'm glad it's over.

I'm sorry to say that the final show wasn't real. The five men should have died and Lou should have lived. The birth of Janet's baby was nonsense as well as the ashes blowing away. Those scenes didn't live up to the drama that Tommy brought to the show. The reference to the 343 names of the men who died was nice but it didn't create the melodrama to match how Tommy felt throughtout the series of of what happened on Sept. 11th. The whole show was "too soft" and I was terribly disappointed. I love all the characters but it should have ended with a bang and not a shuffle. Sorry Dennis, but, you did a great job throught the whole series but in my opinion, you blew it with the finale..

I'm with Tim on this one... We're way beyond spoiler alerts at this point... I'm an analyst, so I appreciate the symbolism of the finale.

Why did Lou yell back at Tommy "Go! Go! We'll be all right"? Where was Tommy supposed to go?

Am I the only one who feels like the scene where everyone is covered in Lou's ashes looked a lot like a cut-scene from 9/11?

At the expense of perhaps over-thinking it; I believe that it's all largely based around 9/11... And that Lou went up the stairs (in the towers) and that Tommy went down the stairs... and that's why he was so haunted.

I'm sorry but I think overall that it is the audiences' decision who died ultimately....too many scenes & scenarios (mostly exaggerated) occurred in the life of "Tommy living" vs. "Lou living." I think it is up to us to determine who lived & who died...between the birth of Janet's new baby & the scene in the park, I can't help but think it was "too perfect" for Tommy. Which tells me that Lou might have actually survived & Tommy & his gang are entering their own version of heaven & moving on in the afterlife.
