A shameless remake of an English series, about a broken family trying to get by on their street smarts.

I started watching because Emmy Rossum is both a talented actress and ridiculously attractive. I continued to watch because the family was and is a complete horrific disaster. The writing and dialog are very good. Even when the show goes beyond your ability to suspend disbelief, it's okay the characters are still compelling enough to make you want to enjoy their company.

Great show that will get you hooked after the first episode. Deals with real life issues without sugar coating anything.

One of the the best written shows on television, hands down. They've lucked out with the not-so-recognized, yet immensely talented cast. It's a somewhat exaggerated take on real life. They get down and dirty, in every sense. It's refreshing!

The fifth season is kind of losing itself, maybe going too dark. The only really interesting part has been Lip's life all the others stuff is just white noise.

Hope they bring back Karen & Steve sometime soon.

Who knew such terrible people could be so entertaining? Who gives cocaine to a baby? Who comes up with that? I love this show because it shocks me every time.

The 3 seasons were so good, such bitter humor... it is a drama not a comedy after all....

Shameless has one of the best casts on television. I haven't seen the original UK version, but this is one of the few US remakes that I'll happily watch with no complaints.

Never have and never will come across any other comedy/drama show that keeps me entertained every second of every episode, watching these characters in their perpetual dysfunctional lives is congenial ..the story arcs are so deliberately laid-out and hilarious, often concluding on an emotional note.We've seen many good shows perish after 5-6 years in its run but here's an exception, which is great for the fans.

P.S. damn, the name of this show does personify & aptly relate to simply how shameless these people are.

Best way I could sum this up is: each season the writers of the show build a nice house out of human interaction, hopes and emotions and then come down on it with a hammer, really hard. It's fun to watch and since it deals with uninhibited people each finds their own favorite (hell, I've known people who associate themselves with Frank...).
