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 seasons 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 downright 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, ended up gaining my sympathy. Every character is three-dimensional, and is brought to life by the best ensemble cast this side of Six Feet Under.Read more ›
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!
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.
