    Watching Rescue Me reruns on FXX, I see they are presented as a postage stamp. They used to be in HD when originally aired. Is there any way to contact them to find out why they are not being shown in HD? No help from the website.

    Your best bet is probably Facebook or Twitter. There is however a "contact us" link at the bottom of their site that you can use to email them.

    Then I would go the Facebook or Twitter route. Both of those generally get a company's attention the fastest these days.

    And its most likely a rights issue. They have the rights to show the SD shows, but not for the rebroadcast of the HD version.

    Thinking back to when Rescue Me first started airing, I'm pretty certain the first several seasons weren't in HD. I might be wrong, but I seem to recall it coming out around the time when the HD transition was slowly happening.

    I just checked Netflix, which has the entire series, and all are HD. I remember watching them in SD for awhile because I didn't have a HD set.

    I did some checking too, and FX didn't start showing it in HD until Season 5 - which was the 22 episode season following the writer's strike. So maybe they don't show the re-runs in HD? (I haven't watched a Rescue Me repeat from anything other than Netflix.)

    It's an FX original show. They own the rights 100%.

    I dont think we had FX in HD when Rescue Me first aired. It was only the last couple of seasons that were shown in HD on Directv.
