Review this tv show
Dec 9, 20131) A father beating to blood a kid is not fun, never
2) A kleptomaniac pathological liar about 10 years old is not fun
3) A devious bully child, not helped but encouraged in violent behaviours by his family is not fun
4) A person sitting on the WC is not hilarious
Mar 17, 2013It was painful sitting through the Pilot, my friends told me it was so awesome and I feel completely let down. I kept telling myself maybe it will get better but it really didn't. I stomached maybe 20 minutes into the second episode and couldnt take anymore.
Awards & Rankings
Now and then Shameless sloughs off its mostly self-imposed constraints and fires on all cylinders, observing economic hardship, drunken tomfoolery and sexual shenanigans with a keen eye for class specifics.
Exec producers John Wells (ER), Andrew Stearn (The West Wing), and Paul Abbott (Cracker), adapting Abbott's original Brit version, waste the talents of Macy, Joan Cusack, and Emmy Rossum (Mystic River), among others, and you'll waste your time straining to enjoy it.
