      I thought it was a good episode. I think they did model it off of the Worchester Tragedy. I did like the accuracy of all the black smoke billowing out of the windows from the outside but once you got inside, the smoke was nowhere to be found??!! Oh well, that's Hollywood for ya. I do think its is the most accurate show so far on our job, hopefully there will be more of that.

      Keep your head down and your powder dry.

And why was there so many people inside that were by themselves?? Oh well, that's Hollywood for ya. I do think its is the most accurate show so far on our job, hopefully there will be more of that.

          When they first arrived on scene and Jimmy was radioing for a line to the 3rd floor do you think that was modeled off of the real life problem that FDNY is having with their new radios?

            I thought about that at first myself, but wouldn't an episode with that magnitude have been filmed way before the problems arose? or at least the script would have been written?

              All in all it was a great show. I understand the lack of smoke on the inside and the unbelievable clarity of their voices through the SCBA's, being needed for the viewers to see what was going on. But tell me, have you ever seen a firefighter reading the news paper on a fire ground?

                It was a good show. Can someone clue me in, did I miss how they handled Bobby's death? I don't think I missed an episode.

                  Bobby!!!!They never really dealt with it to much. It's like they took Bobby's stuff over to his Mom's and that was it. In the "scenes from next episode" they made it look like Kim had some kind of nervous breakdown resulting from a partner's death. Now, whether or not it was Bobby is a mystery.Bobby!!!!

                    Good episode. I especially liked the chief physically blocking the entrance to keep additional FF out. The chief on the scene in Worcester did the same thing...I hope if I were in the same situation I would have the cajones to do the same.

                    As for the smoke...I have been in a wharehouse fire with 25' ceilings. A lot of smoke, but very little banked down to floor level. I don't know if anyone else has seen that, but I'll tell you its scarier than hell not knowing how high the ceiling is, or what conditions are above you.

                      I think by far the two best parts of the episode where:

                      When Jimmy takes the other Engine line. When the firefighter (the guy that Jimmy just had a "beat the living snot out of the other guy" football game with) questions him, all he does is explain it is needed and a "sister" is in trouble. He then backs Jimmy up without even one word.

                      Then number two is Jimmy risking his own live, and never giving up to try and save that same "brother" he wanted to kill the day before.

                      In my opinion, these two scenes were the most realistic, showing the true "brotherhood" of the fire service.
