Review of Shameless (US)

Sundays, 9:00 PM ET on Showtime

60 minutes

Based on a long-running British drama, Shameless stars William H. Macy as the alcoholic patriarch of a big blue-collar family in Chicago, the Gallaghers. The mother is AWOL, and with the alcoholic patriarch (Macy) usually passed out on the living-room floor, their smart but unpredictable 18-year-old daughter, Fiona (Rossum), is tasked with keeping her five younger brothers and sisters on the straight and narrow.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Shameless will make you feel better about your own fucked up life. This show is about a family that was brought up on the 'south side' who all make bad life choices, but are still good people. They somehow made a group of characters who do such shitty things be so like-able. It's hard not to root for them to make it through all of their adversities, but they just keep surprising you with how 'shameless' they really can be.
