Tv Season Info

It's summertime in Chicago, and the Gallaghers are cooking up fresh ways to bring home the bacon. Their ventures may not be moral -- or even legal -- but they certainly are outrageous. Between beating the heat and keeping their cool, the Gallaghers are in for one crazy summer. It's never a dull moment for the crazy, dysfunctional Gallagher clan in Season Two.

Critic Reviews for Shameless: Season 2

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

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

Full Review… | January 8, 2012

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

Full Review… | January 8, 2012

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

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

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.
