The last fifteen years or so have been referred to by many as the golden age of television, and I can't help but agree - what was once a (mostly) simplistic medium has finally has given us some great stuff to chew on. The Wire, Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Deadwood and a handful of others have captured me the same way that great film or literature does - if not more so. I, like many others, become attached to these characters in a way that only long-form narratives can provide.

As someone who constantly reads about, writes about and discusses these types of series on the internet, Shameless wasn't even on my radar. No one ever brings it up in "greatest series" discussions; and the critical reception, while mostly positive, isn't exactly overwhelming. I had seen the pilot episode around the time it premiered and wasn't impressed (and *still* not impressed with it, to be honest), so I avoided the show for years despite my girlfriend's glowing recommendations.

After seeing the first couple episodes of Season Three earlier this year, I immediately went out and bought the first two on Blu-Ray. Wow. This is rich, hilarious stuff. It makes me laugh, cry, think, and even puts me on the edge of my seat from time to time. The characters, while often living up to the show's title, are completely loveable. Even ones I loathed at first, like deadbeat dad Frank (brilliantly portrayed by William H Macy), his wretched mother Grammy Gallagher, or "dirtiest white-boy in America" Mickey Milkovich, end up being sympathetic and even relatable. Every character is three-dimensional, and is brought to life by the best ensemble cast this side of Six Feet Under. Even the kid actors are phenomenal...

Shameless is a must see show, and it gets better each season. The whole cast delivers great performances each week. William H Macy is the perfect fit for the role of Frank Gallagher, and he is always hilarious. The rest of the cast great too: Emmy Rossum, Jeremy Allen White, Steve Howey, Joan Cusack...If you do not watch this show, you are missing out on one of the best current television shows.

Also, why doesn't this show get more award recognition? Shameless is just as good as any show on TV. It would just be nice to see them get some recognition for their excellent work.

Can't wait for Season 4, January 2014!

Honestly season 3 just may be my favorite season of Shameless so far! If you loved the first 2 seasons then you'll definitly love this one, and this is definitly a must buy when it gets released. I'm not gonna put any spoilers in my review, but Shameless continues to be a brilliantly written show and Shameless season 3 has plenty of drama, laughs, and top notch storylines. The acting from the whole cast is outstanding. There's not a bad actor in the bunch. You know how great William H Macy and Emmy Rossum are. It doesn't even need to be said at this point, but there are 2 other standouts this season imo. Jeremy Allen White as Lip and Noel Fisher as Mickey Milkovich. Noel Fisher finally becomes a regular this season and I couldn't be more happy. He completely transformers into Mickey Milkovich, and even if his content up to this point is less than most of the others he steals every scene he's in. For example, during the season finale he gets maybe 2 minutes of screentime overall, but those 2 minutes may be my favorite part of the whole finale.

Some people can talk about the show's "Shameless" content, but this show also has more heart and soul in one episode than most shows have in their whole run. It's truly a special show. So everyone buy this on release date or pre order it now! I can't wait for season 4.

Frank is classic. William H Macey's best roll. Declaration in Chicago. The whole cast of characters are the best on television.

This DVD set hasn't been released yet but I'm a big Shameless fan. If you like shows with disfunctional families that make your family seem normal this is the show for you. It has drama and lots of laughs. I purchased the other two seasons from Amazon also. Each time I was able to purchase the blue ray version cheaper then getting it locally.

This show makes me cringe because some of the characters are so despicable, but I keep watching because the show is fascinating, hilarious, and tremendously well-acted. The Galllaghers lead a life that is completely different than anything I've ever known, and the means they use to get by are, shall we say, unconventional. But the characters have enormous depth. Some are rotten through and through, but with many of them, their good hearts shine through even while they're breaking the law. Above all, they love and care for each other. The writing is top notch and the stories, endlessly compelling.i just love this show, even when I have to force myself not to turn away.
