Season two picked up right where season one left off! I loved getting to follow the Galagers through a crazy Summer following season 1's crazy winter! They are the realist family on TV! They are filled with fun entertaining laughs, storytelling and realism! I love, love love this show!
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It's Shamless round 2
This is a terrific series. I grew up with a couple alcoholic parents that delved into some mild drugging and I see a great deal of my childhood as well as my own adult life in so much of Shameless. I'm not saying my family's lives were as hilariously funny as Frank's whole crew but I'm sure they could get some good material from me. I'd feared this series would be taken as too farcical and dispensed with after the first season. Usually when I like a series really well it disappears. William Macy has done a terrific job of depicting a deplorable, filthy, alcoholic with absolutely no morals. My hat is off to the rest of the cast. It is impressive the child actors can bring across such convincing roles portraying the lives of a dysfunctional family so well. I just love this season; even better than the first!
Macy, Rossum, everybody performs as if they know they're in something special. Well, they are. Shameless is Showtime's most consistent drama and with the introductory phase taken care of in S1, the stories are deeper and more intriguing in the second year.
Transfer is good, but the show alone, especially at a good low price, is absolutely worth your attention and a small portion of your income. Shameless may be one of the most overlooked long running shows of the century.
My husband n I season a couple episodes on t.v. It seemed like it could be a good show. So when my husband and I went out to buy the first season we really enjoyed it. It was funny yet relatable to the people of today's generation and what some people really go through. Other than having some funny parts it would leave me on the edge of my seat wanting to see what choices people could and would make.
"Shameless" is a wild, raunchy ride that would be hollow if it weren't for the strange, strong love that holds the family together (and when I say family, I mean the family they choose, not neccesarily the one they come with). Hilarious and touching in turn- you know the drill.
tl;dr - I laughed, I cried, I binge-watched all the way up to the current episode in two weeks flat.
I've seen plenty of UK to US shows and this one holds up, unlike others, namely Skins and Inbetweeners. The entire cast gives their all and more to show their characters as real people. Not only is the show great, the Christmas Carol video is hysterical
Watch this show because it is soooo worth watching! The characters and story lines are captivating and relate to events that happen in real life to real people. The Gallaghers are very entertaining to watch.
