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.

Coming from the south-side of Chicago this show reminds me of how I managed to be the person I came to be. Shameless encompasses the good, the bad, the ugly, and the way of life from those who live in the Bridgeport-Canaryville Area. Back of the Yards has very few Irish-Americans and Polish-Americans left. It has been a thriving Hispanic community for some years. I believe they did well with the writing. I can safely say that some of the story lines truth is stranger than the fiction.
