Shamelessly addicted to Shameless

By Claire Hilleary

Oscar-nominated actor William H. Macy stars as Frank Gallagher, a single father of six who spends much of his free time drinking at bars. The Gallagher children — led by oldest daughter Fiona (Emmy Rossum), who takes on much of the child-rearing responsibility due to her mother’s absence — manage to raise themselves in spite of Frank’s lack of parenting and unusual parenting style when he does choose to act like a father.

The drama is an adaptation of the BAFTA Award-winning British show of the same name.  There are 7 seasons of this show on Netflix and each episode leaves you hanging and with that “Just one more…” mentality that really means “Just one more season…”

The show not only will have you laughing out loud, it will have you tearing up and feeling angry- which is in my opinion- the best kind of show: one that toys with each and every emotion you have. And although the family lives a hard life trying to make ends meet and just making it through the day, there is a strong appeal about their lifestyle.

By the end of season 2 you’ll be wanting to be apart of the Gallagher family and living out the crazy experiences and adventures that they face everyday. I wont spoil the rest for you- So grab a snack or two- and watch Shameless!!
