    • Racist and Disrespectful Sexual References Minimizing the Terror of Chattel Slavery

      'Shameless' makes disgusting sexual references that minimize the anguish, including the countless rapes that Black people suffered during hundreds of years of chattel slavery. Yet, most people don't even mention, let alone consider the level of disrespect (or possibly, simple indifference) that the writer would have to possess for Blacks slaves, and their horrific experiences. Even though the writer has little respect for boundaries, some things should simply be off limits; and reducing the pain and suffering that a population of people (men, women, and children) have actually experienced during centuries of slavery is one of those things. If the writer had minimized and glorified what Jewish people experienced during the decade plus long holocaust (which would also be disgusting), there'd be more of a backlash. However, we all know the writer would never get away with something like that (any Jewish reference would be very minor and significantly less insulting). The fact that the writer is comfortable turning such an evil and painful part of American history (hundreds of years of slavery) into insignificant perverted sexual "fantasies" is beyond reprehensible.moreless
    • Shameless Addicts

      Shameless is right up there with Breaking Bad and Sons of Anarchy! The whole family has a huge girl crush on Emmy Rossum. Wasn't quite sure about Mickey's character to begin with, but has one all of us over, he's just soo loveable. However when is someone going to put us out of our misery and get rid of Sammy!!!!!!
    • Can't talk - Bingeing on Shameless

      Great show, yeah, it is over the top with some of the truly shameless things going on, but what a ride.
    • SHAMLESS is speachless

      this show is amazing weirdest family ever yet they're awesome

      i love ian and mickey they are so cute together :'(

      This show is unbelievably amazing... season 4 was so incredibly heart-wrenching with Frank and Fiona's characters. The part where Kev and a couple other bar-dudes come over to Sheila's house and brought the "Alibi" Bar to Frank because he was too ill to leave the house... that part where Kev pours him a non-alcoholic beer and Frank starts laughing and crying... that part was one of the most emotional experiences I've had with a TV show... just beautiful.moreless
