News & Interviews for Shameless: Season 1
William H. Macy is miscast as alcoholic dad Frank, though Emmy Rossum almost rings true as tough-minded daughter Fiona.
Shameless will sorely test any prospective viewers' compassion fatigue
Despite all the booze, illegal activity, open sexuality, and adult narcissism, the kids are all right.
Each character faces real struggles, issues I couldn't relate to during even my lowest points in life. Yet, somehow, they are so believable one can't help but love (or, in Frank's case, love to hate) them and celebrate when they succeed in some way.
