It has long been a goal of mine to see a movie or TV show about volunteer firefighters. In fact, about ten-years-ago a friend wrote a movie script based on some stories I told him and the experiences of another friend who is a volunteer. It was pitched to a few folks in the entertainment field but never got anywhere.
Now this comes along (posted on February 6) by comedian Juston McKinney about a fictional volunteer fire department in Effingwoods, New Hampshire. It includes Gary Valentine and Lenny Clarke (Rescue Me). The credits thank the Newfields Volunteer Fire Department.
I am curious to see the reaction of our readers. The comment line is open. Remember folks, it’s a comedy.
