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.

The writing is good, the story is compelling, the acting is good but its way too much of a mess for me. I know for some that messes like Kim Kardashian and such reality shows are entertaining and at least this comes with substance but its way too much chaos for me.
