There is nothing quite like Shameless on television today.

The Gallagher kids, especially the older ones, have enough heart to keep me invested and I was glad to have them back.

The Gallaghers have heart, soul and most importantly, something to say.

The show's disparate pieces - the filthy comedy and the desperation, the joy and the depression - hold together just as well.

January 8, 2012 Full Review Source: HitFix

Shameless definitely isn't your conventional comedy. In fact, almost nothing about this series is conventional. That's part of the appeal.

it's nearly impossible to tell from one episode to the next whether Shameless is building up to something or the writers are just doing playful riffs on the Gallagher world that are intended to stand alone.

It's easy to give Shameless the benefit of the doubt, because, at its best, the show is a lot of fun.
