Although it is a Television show, a damn good one at that, Shameless brings out the feelings in a person. You can’t help but feel for the imaginary family but in all honesty, we all know there are families or a family out there JUST like this.
Shameless pulls at the heartstrings left and right. This family literally goes through thick and thin. Some can’t help but relate to some of the characters. It’s a fine strong bunch.
I honestly can’t help but think, damn, these guys and gals have been through complete shit! Again, I know it’s a story of fiction, but EVERYTHING is based off of something. I mean come on now if it’s not directly based off of someone’s life loosely.
I watch as Carl and Liam grow, Carl from thug to wanting to better himself. Lip from uneducated to college boy, Debbie from single mom to well still single mom, I’m sure her character will develop more later, Ian from schizophrenic manic depressant to respected EMT, and Fiona from business manager to owner.
In my opinion sure the family is quite fucked up. Frank is still an addicted jerk off, Monica, well she’s quite the catch, also, if you haven’t caught the latest season, **Spoiler ahead!** poor Monica bites the dust. Ruh Roh. No worries I know what everyone was thinking it was a drug binge, but your wrong. I assure you it was natural causes.
Unfortunately I can’t see the family progress until future seasons are released one episode after another, but I would still love to see how they change. That’s what really keeps my interest up. Seeing them go from rags to riches. Oh come on you honestly think they won’t? I can assure you, with a family as fucked up as the Gallagher’s, you know those kids are bound to go up rather down. Coming from shit or as some call it rock bottom, you know they can only go up from the shit that they have grown from.
Thanks for the read! I update and post from time to time, write about things I feel necessary to write about, but you’ll see updates on different topics every so often. Thanks again!
