Product Description

Shameless: The Complete Second Season

Amazon.com

Welcome back to another season of depravity starring the family who puts the fun in dysfunctional. The Gallaghers, central characters in Shameless, are "living crappily ever after," or so the tagline goes, and in this second season of the Showtime series (with 12 episodes, plus bonus material, on three discs) they more than live up to that billing--especially Frank (William H. Macy), a strong candidate for the worst fictional father figure since Darth Vader. In just the first three episodes, this unrepentant drunk puts up his 2-year-old son as collateral after losing a ridiculous $10,000 bet; steals an engagement ring another man intends to give to the daughter of Sheila (Joan Cusack), the agoraphobic widow Frank regularly sponges off of; and withholds the news that a heart has become available for transplanting into a dying woman friend whose pension Frank hopes to steal. As before, all of this leaves his six kids to pretty much fend for themselves. They include twentysomething Fiona (Emmy Rossum), the de facto mom, who takes care of five siblings and manages to hold the whole thing together while barely staying a step ahead of her own tangled love life; Lip (Jeremy Allen White), a scam artist who's smart, resourceful, and caring; Ian (Cameron Monaghan), who despite his homosexuality yearns to attend West Point and join the army; and Debbie (Emma Kenney), who runs a daycare operation out of their home (the family also rents out Frank's bedroom to a pregnant Chinese woman and a prostitute) while anxiously awaiting the onset of adolescence. These are the characters we come to root for, and who give the show its heart and soul. As for their dad… well, once his mother (a hardened criminal brilliantly portrayed by Louise Fletcher) shows up, it's clear the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. And while Macy is excellent in the lead role (in one of the bonus features he discusses the challenges of playing a character that's perpetually wasted), the days when we chuckled along with lovable drunks like Dean Martin and Foster Brooks are long gone. And there's not much lovable about Frank Gallagher anyway; in addition to being an alcoholic, he's a liar, a thief, and a self-entitled freeloader whose own kids don't want him living under the same roof as them. Shameless is smart, well written, and humorous (in a black, satirical kind of way), but perhaps not for everyone. Bonus features also include featurettes, unaired scenes, and a preview of season three. --Sam Graham

I've recently decided that Shameless is the best show on television currently. It's the kind of series that's so fast-moving, so well acted and written, that you can watch it over and over again and notice new quirks each time. Some people would probably call the show's lack of shame tasteless. To me, it's exciting. You truly don't know what's going to happen next!

The second season started out a little slow, but once Frank's mother ("Grammy") shows up, things really kick into gear. Played with utter relish by the great Louise Fletcher, Grammy's a force of nature. And let's just say, her character arc ends in quite a... shocking way.

Season Two also sees the return of Chloe Webb as Monica Gallagher, Frank's estranged wife and altogether crazy, sad character. Her episodes are such a great, gritty depiction of mental illness. I'm always amazed with how this show manages to be both fall out of your seat funny and completely heartbreaking... sometimes at the same time.

As with the first season, the ensemble cast is extraordinary, led by William H Macy and Emmy Rossum (where is the awards show love for these two? Especially Rossum!). Joan Cusack continues to steal every single scene she's in, and has a few really, really funny ones towards the middle of the season. And finally, the kids manage to be totally unaffected and charming. You really feel like you're a part of this crazy, dysfunctional family -- for better or worse!

In short, if you haven't seen this series, go buy the first season on DVD and get this one as soon as it's released. You will be completely addicted.

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 farsical 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 can't wait until season two comes out on DVD. Shameless is totally different and fantastically written, directed and the actors superbly cast. If it continues with this great ensemble, it will last season after season for years.

Probably one of the best shows on TV. All the actors are great, even the kids, and we can all easily connect with their characters. It's almost impossible not to like this show. I also love the comedy resulted by all those hard situations they have to go through.

Shameless is one of the best shows to come along in a long time. Sometimes the depictions of life on America's edge are so real I can barely watch. While veteran character actors like Wm Macy and Joan Cusack deliver every week, the children in this show are phenomenal. Some of the best acting from young people I have ever seen. Lip breaks my heart - a brilliant kid with no blueprint for success. Karen and Fiona are two sides of the same coin - achingly vulnerable one minute and steel backbone the next. I have been Fiona at times in my life (as a single mother in poverty) the actress hits so many nuanced notes - brilliant. whoever writes this knows the alcoholic dance intimately and is fearless. Thank you to all involved in this amazing show. I cannot wait for next January!

This show is very well written and the actors fit their characters extremely well. this show is a real down and dirty type of show that has real life situations and puts it into a show. this is my favorite show that is a mixture of drama and comedy at some parts. although this family may by dysfunctional, there are times of real unity which makes the show even better.

I love love love this show! The characters are so well written play out great. Nothing clean about this humor though folks, so if you are looking for a show to watch with the family, try something else.

When I saw the pilot, I thought it would be a dud, but a few episodes and I was hooked. It sounds like an impossible theme to make laughs out of a weirdly functional dysfunctional family, but it works. William H. Macy is incredible as the manipulative, drunk, drugged birth father (it would so so inaccurate to call him the father given his history and behavior). I can hardly wait for season 3.
