I’ve been mulling the idea of doing TV and Movie posts for a while. I enjoy a good show or movie as much as a good tune so I guess the glove fits. Anyways these posts will mostly consist of me trying to convince you on why you should watch. No pretentious existential bloviating here.
Shameless is a remake of a long running UK show of the same name. The series follows the dysfunctional family of Frank Gallagher, a single father of six children. While he spends his days drunk, his kids learn to take care of themselves.
Shameless just concluded its first season and has already been renewed for its second, thank you TV Gods. I have described this show to friends as Modern Family on crack. Anything goes in this dark comedy and while most remakes tend to suck this one fires on all cylinders. Its soooo good. The acting by Emmy Rossum (Fiona) and William H. Macy (Frank) is impeccable and will surely garner them nominations in the months to come. Do yourself a favor and start watching.
