Superb tv show, on season 4 at moment, and we are loving it, wuite emotional at times too!


Best tv show ever watched. For me season three is the best but on the whole is totally Ninja!!!!


Best. Show. Ever. :heart: Characters, story, realistic, deep, and funny too.


It's too bad the last 2 seasons or so started focusing more on action and over the top gangster plots, rather than the down to earth police and fire stories that made the first few seasons so much fun to watch. Still a great show, though. Especially the way they weaved in 9/11 was so impressive.


Egyik kedvenc sorozatom. A színészek szueperek, a történet is magával ragadó. Gratulálok és köszönöm. Thank you &lt;3 +++++


**This is one of the best TV shows of all time.** I can count on one hand the number of compelling TV shows that have a beginning, a middle and an end. From the first episode, _Welcome to Camelot_ to the last, _Goodbye to Camelot_, _Third Watch_ was intriguing, true to life television for the entire six seasons of its existence. Forewarned is forearmed. This is a television series where it doesn't necessarily get solved by the hour's end, where main characters die and good doesn't always triumph over evil. This is the original series that tells the stories of the first responders of the city of New York. Making it even more compelling was it was broadcast during the time of the September 11th attacks. The series weaves reality into its universe and shows us how those events affected its characters. The fact is by the time you reach those storylines in season three, you'd expect nothing less from this series which treated you like an adult from Episode 1. From some of the creative minds that brought you _ER_, _Criminal Minds_ and _SouthLAnd_, I highly recommend this rare series. If you can find it, don't binge it. Savor it. Treasure it. Enjoy it.
