Critic Reviews for Shameless: Season 6

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

The season six premiere finds our Gallaghers more stable than ever, but that only means it's the fall from grace will be harder and more devastating.

January 11, 2016 | Full Review…

While it's not a complete fix of the missteps in season five, it's at the very least a very tentative start.

January 25, 2016 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

The Gallaghers are always stressful to watch, yet consistently entertaining.

January 13, 2016 | Full Review…

With the premiere of its sixth season, Shameless proves that it still has some fire under its feet and can take its characters in new and interesting directions.

January 10, 2016 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Shameless is never going to be the televisual equivalent of a warm hug, but it's trained us into accepting even deeply concerning situations as welcome ones.

Audience Reviews for Shameless: Season 6

Shameless is one of my two favorite shows ever (up there with Dexter). Every season I wonder how they can keep Shameless interesting and every time, by the end of the first episode of the season, I'm already excited about watching the next. Season 6 is as awesome as the last. If you've never seen Shameless, you've got the advantage because you don't have to wait for the next episode.
