"They're got a wonderful show coming up. It's the real thing," Eigenberg said. "The sincerity of terrible situations they're serving in their communities, that's an amazing gift to watch. It's been a gift for me to tag along with the real firefighters. They're amazing, and they have seen things that other human beings should never have to see, but yet somebody does have to see it. And they do it. And we don't," he added with sincerity.
