As any tv show grows older, the tendency to overstay their welcome becomes a larger risk factor with every new season. The need for a paycheck often outlives the passion. I remain hopeful that Shameless will know when to stop, and this season feels like a move toward some sort of resolution for the Gallagher family.
That being said, I have loved every season of this show to date, this one included. It can be hilarious at times, and take a 180-degree turn into serious territory. This show is recommended for anyone with a devilish sense of humor, and an appreciation for well crafted drama.
