Dysfunctional family, boozing, and all round crazy people. Sign me right up. Shameless is the story of a crazy alcoholic and his children. Dad isn’t around much to help since he is busy spending the Social Security check at the bar. The oldest sister takes charge to keep the family above water and raise all rest of the kids as normal as possible. Needless to say leaving kids to raise themselves sure creates a lot of crazy problems that require the family to get out of some sticky situations.
This show has some the best writing and camera work I have seen. The editing and shots are all done beautifully. I really enjoy this show a lot. I enjoyed the UK version (the few episodes I saw) as well, but the American version wins out just because I don’t have to use subtitles. Each episode is great new story and keeps you hooked the whole time. Also they show lots of boobies which bumps them up a few stars in my book. Check this show out on Netflix and Showtime. It’s time well spent.
