Season 4 Review: Macy, Rossum & Co. have never been more explosively entertaining, while this year's hilarious story setups are deviously par for the course on TV's most insane, debaucherous dose of weekly WTF. [24 Jan 2014, p.65]

Season 2 Review: The show is technically flawless--so is Macy strutting like a mangy Mick Jagger--but the Gallaghers' raucous, defiant pride never really engages me. [20 Feb 2012, p.46]

Season 1 Review: Hamming it up big time, William H. Macy plays a booze-addled father of six kids in this uneven drama that seems more intent on taking its pay-cable liberties (nudity, profanity, etc.) to the extreme than weaving an engaging story.
