QUICK BITES

Res­cue Me, 9.10pm, W Susan Saran­don ap­pears, lend­ing cred­i­bil­ity to this bizarrely paced and over­sexed soap built around the in­ner work­ings of En­gine 62, a New York City fire­house. The star is Tommy Gavin ( De­nis Leary), a se­nior fire­fighter whose life is in per­pet­ual tur­moil. It moves so quickly you could be for­given for think­ing the whole thing is a catch- up — as in ‘‘ pre­vi­ously on Res­cue Me’’ — but this is just the way it plays. So many char­ac­ters so seem­ingly dis­con­nected, yet the over­all ef­fect is im­pres­sive, and with a lit­tle per­sis­tence, quite pos­si­bly ad­dic­tive. Grey’s Anatomy, 8.30pm, Seven Meredith is back from the dead, with ab­so­lutely no ill- ef­fects. That’s in­cred­i­ble, es­pe­cially as the af­ter- ef­fects of the ferry dis­as­ter con­tinue for pa­tients. Per­sonal drama over, Grey’s re­turns to its friv­o­lous ‘‘ des­per­ate sur­geons’’ mode. Ge­orge has been a naughty boy, but doesn’t re­mem­ber his mis­chief with Izzie.
