Dare we say the Gallaghers are actually on the road to making better decisions?

November 8, 2017 | Full Review…

The Gallaghers are back in the Age of Trump. God help the South Side, but blessed are the viewers.

November 6, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

If the season 8 opener is any indication, Shameless is looking to take on an even more political overtone.

November 6, 2017 | Full Review…

Speaking of Frank, there's absolutely no way his new leaf will stick. We've witnessed this man take on multiple personas throughout the years, and while it gives William H. Macy a lot to work with, we've seen it all a little too much.

November 5, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Hide your wallets and meth, because the Gallaghers are back!

November 6, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The weight facing each Gallagher isn't as immediate as it once was, with characters grappling less with the razor's edge of poverty and more with the psychological toil. But that leaves room for the show to dig deeper into who these characters are.
