Shameless: "Summertime" Review

Shameless returned tonight on Showtime, and while our weekly reviews weren't getting enough hits last season to justify continuing them, I did want to at least review the Season 2premiere. Though forgive me: I'll have to keep this on the short side, as I'm in the midst of covering the TCA press tour, which is occupying much of my time. 

"Summertime" was a bit of a messy episode. With a large cast, the premiere had a lot of plot to cover, picking up with the Gallagher family several months after Season 1 ended. I think the most interesting reveal was that no one knows Eddie killed himself – they think he just took off. So for now, Karen hasn't had to deal with the death of her father, though I'm guessing that body will pop up at some point…
