Friday Favourites: Shameless

Please tell me you’ve heard of Shameless? This series is on television – new season to start back up in January.

OMG – you have to watch it. It is shockingly funny – in a dark humour kind of way. The series follows the adventures of the Gallagher family. They are one hell of a dysfunctional family.

The dad, so brilliantly played by William H. Macy, is a raging alcoholic. He has 6 children – of which – he doesn’t raise. He spends most of his time, if not all the time, being drunk. So his kids ultimately are raising themselves.

The show is raw and honest. You really need to listen to the sarcastic undertone of the show to really appreciate it.

There’s lots of swearing, nudity and tough subject matters. Definitely one to watch – definitely not for children.

Go out and rent the first season this weekend. It is sure to shock and entertain you!

Enjoy your weekend. See you Monday!

Simply Yours,

I will have to check this out. We have been watching a few different series on Netflix (since we got Apple TV). We have been into Rescue Me, Sons of Anarchy and The Big C. All good – but with lots of nudity, violence and swearing. Love it! A welcome break from Treehouse.

Love Netflix – we have Apple TV too – it rocks! I’m almost finished The Big C. So Freakin’ Good & Sad. I will have to check out Sons of Anarchy. I’ve been hearing a lot about it.
