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.

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.
