Shaw's good but her televised autobiography is a work in progress that can't quite settle on tone, meaning or direction. Even the series title is frustrating.

You won't spend long dwelling on the title, but you'll want to stick with this story.

But then, in episode three, Shaw seems to find her footing, and I found myself thinking that SMILF could develop a Shameless-like charm.

All of her character's random quirks are odd yet charming, and her very real inner struggle paired with her penchant for making bad decisions drives the story along and makes for some rather unforgettable hilarity and an overall fantastic show.

While it may not always hit, it at least tries to talk about mental health and poverty in the nitty gritty, harsh realities of those truths, rather than having everyone end up okay in the end.
