Tv Season Info

The wily Gallagher clan return for a shenanigan-filled third season that begins with deadbeat Frank (William H. Macy) waking up in Mexico. After a massive bender that lasted for several months, Frank has no idea how he is going to get back home. Back in Chicago, things aren't any better as Fiona (Emmy Rossum) struggles to adapt after Jimmy (Justin Chatwin) moves in with her. But things are even worse for Jimmy. Estefania's drug-lord father kills her boyfriend in front of Jimmy and then forces him to hack up the body and dispose of it. When Frank finally returns to the Windy City he resorts to his underhanded ways and uses Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) to scam a children's cancer foundation. Meanwhile, Fiona lands a job as a cashier at a local grocery store; Veronica (Shanola Hampton) and Kevin (Steve Howey) go to extreme lengths to conceive a baby; and Jimmy learns that his dad is gay and is sleeping with Ian (Cameron Monaghan). Everything comes to a head when the Department of Child and Family Services learns of the Gallaghers' unusual dynamics and threatens to take the kids away.

    "Shameless" é uma série muito subestimada. Todo o elenco desta série, particularmente nesta temporada, apresenta performances incríveis em cada episódio. A terceira temporada é a melhor de todas, extremamente divertida e muito emotiva. Destaco especialmente o episódio "Survival of the Fittest".

    The third season of Shameless did a far more commendable job at balancing the antics with the sincerity, leading to a highly watchable program that's appealing as a comedy, and even more memorable as a drama. The writers successfully balanced its large cast of characters into a riveting narrative, and the humanity on display (even when the show is at its most outlandish) is undeniable. Plenty of shocking plot turns this season too, and as always, the show is most compelling in its scenes involving the relationship between Fiona and Frank. Shameless has more-or-less become Showtime's flagship series, and this season has all the hallmarks that allowed it to become so.

    Shameless (2011-) the US version is a tv series based off of the original british tv series though it has a better cast. This show is remarkable to say the very least, stocked with the perfect cast; a ton of various stories which go on throughout the show following each character in it. I’m not certain that too many shows can even compare to this one when it comes to favorites. When I started watching Shameless I couldn’t turn it off, I stayed awake for more than 50 hours going through the seasons only to sit back afterwards wondering how long this show will continue. I did the research to find out it was sort of a remake (typical of the US Media), to find out this one is actually better, at least in my opinion. I started watching both shows in comparison to validate what I had thought and I genuinely fell in love with the characters within the US Version. This show is amazing, it's perfect; and it shows the reality of how the world is. I love it and on that note I’m going to be watching more of the show while I await season 7.

    These episodes continue the over the top antics of Frank Gallagher, though I think it gets progressively more serious with it's choice of subject (action and consequences) and I want to kick his ass more and more...even though it's all part of the plot. Still a great show!

    The magic in Shameless is the fact of it represents a society that no one more series represents so well as this, and with a help of a talented cast and an excellent script it becomes an advisable series to everyone.

    I'm currently watching Shameless and it keeps me coming back - it's a very enjoyable show, but I have one main problem with it. It's a "comedy drama", but unfortunately the comedy seems to be overshadowing the drama. Whenever the show seems to be moving in a serious direction, it is pulled back by some ridiculous, absurdist plot-line that makes the drama moot. I've learned to not take anything serious - the comedy part foils the drama so there's no point getting emotionally invested in anything - the plot-lines almost don't really matter. I feel like it doesn't know if it wants to be a real serialized drama, with plot-lines that are followed through with, or a sit-com where ridiculous things happen in one episode and then are forgotten about once then next one comes along, like when Kenny used to die in all of the South Parks. Some of the characters seem like they're part of a legitimate drama, and they do a wonderful job. I'm talking about Fiona, Ian and Lip. Then almost everyone else seems like they're part of an absurdist sit-com of sorts. The whole thing with Lip and Karen, for example, annoys me to no end. It's like when you're trying really hard on a science project, but your partner just wants to hang around and eat cheetos. By that I mean Lip seems like a real person, a character written for a true drama - and then Karen is just ridiculously over the top. Also, I don't think William H. Macy deserves such a high place on the roster. He's a supporting character, if anything. He's completely one dimensional, he seems like he's part of a comic strip or something. I don't respect his character, it's not well written. If anything, the main characters are Lip, Fiona, and Joan Cusack [i'm blanking on her character's name], even though Joan Cusack is also a little bit ridiculous. So... it's kind of a sit-com that tries to be a drama every once in a while... but can't change the fact that it wants to be an absurdist, almost slap-stick sitcom.
