Anyone else catch the Shameless premiere? A new series on Showtime starring William Macy as an alcoholic father with a highly dysfunctional family.
I really enjoyed this. I love the older daughter acting as Mom, the crazy neighbors, the relationship between the two brothers. I didn’t quite get the deal with the tutor girl’s father randomly leaving with clown paraphernalia. And although it was an interesting twist, I’m not sure how I feel about the rich boyfriend being a car thief. The washer with roses inside was a nice touch though. I also liked the gay son story line, with the gay porn hidden inside straight porn, and the secret affair with the older man.
Looking on wiki it seems this is a remake of a UK series. Anyone seen that? How does it compare?
