  • IS THIS SHOW A COMEDY OR A DRAMA?

    Shameless: Well, *That* Was Screwed Up

    We were completely blindsided by this week's episode, which featured two shocking events—one of which was intensely violent, and both of which will undoubtedly influence the show throughout the rest of its run.

  • Episode Summary

    Fiona tries to organize a Thanksgiving dinner with the little money they have left after Monica spent the Squirrel Fund. Meanwhile, Frank tries to get Monica out of her depression and Steve finally reunites Estefania with her boyfriend Marco. Elsewhere, Lip prepares a tape for his son, but the delivery holds a surprise for him.

      Flawless. The only thing I am mad about is Fiona/Steve relationship. They need to get together now. This is the perfect time because Steve finally brought his wife's lover back - Marco is kinda obsessed with sex - he prefers it with an audience. And Steve gave him his fake IDs and his apartment lol. He is now officially off the hook. Estefania was one hot piece of a lady. And I do also have a problem with Mandy still sleeping with Lip (btw she is pregnant with her own dad who drinks too much and mistakes her with her mama, how sick is that!!!! - so Debbs is helping to collect as much money as they can to pay for Mandy's abortion) and she is apparently developing some feelings for him! Oh no, he always attracts the wrong gals. Speaking of the wrong gals - Karen finally gave birth to her baby but she immediately admitted that she NEVER even said it was his, he just assumed and went with it. And apparently she was doing it with some teenage boy with Dawn Syndrome and the baby is a Dawn too. That was such a sad scene because Lip even gave this videotape of him to the adoptive parents (but those people backed off, they couldn't handle it and Karen was obviously in it for $$$). This all happened while Monica was faighting for her life in the hospital because she cut her wrists during Thanksgiving dinner, poor woman needs help. She is not as bad as I thought, only bipolar. And Chloe Webb is great in that part, plus they have an amaying chemistry with Bill Macy. I could totally see them as a couple. And little psycho Carl is shooting birds now, yeah ... that kid is dangerous. Get him on some medication. Period. one of the final scenes showed sweet Sheila kidnapping/taking (not sure what the right word is here LMAO) her little babz y grandson and driving off with Jody. That broke my heart, it was so sad. I knew she would take him, that slutty Karen won't even look at him. Perfect episode. The next one is the season finale. That shall be juicy. 10/10moreless

      I enjoyed tonight's episode of Shameless. You had a lot of the edgy and witty humor this show brings on a weekly basis, but you also a bit of a shock with what Monica ended up doing. That bridge of comedy and drama is something this show does so well, and it was on display tonight.

      Strong episode, it definitely gets my recommendation.

      • Karen: Fuck Mother Nature! She doesn't have to worry about her vagina getting stretched. Ow!
        Jody: You were already pretty stretched out down there, Karen.

      • Carl: Little Hank has a rifle.
        Fiona: Little Hank's being raised by wolves.

      • Debbie: I think I'm depressed. I've been feeling kind of funky lately.
        Carl: Means you're gonna get your period soon.
        Debbie: It does?
        Carl: Don't wear white for a while.

      • Carl: Mr. Sam at the pawn shop's a douche. Wouldn't trade me an iPad for a Ruger.
        Debbie: No one's gonna let you have a gun, Carl.
        Carl: Little Hank gets to have one.
        Debbi: Because his dad hijacked a bunch of military cargo.

      • Steve: Your sister's driving me crazy. I don't know what it's gonna take for her to trust me. Again.
        Lip: Can you blame her? You know, you have a whole other family. First, your name was Steve, then Jimmy. You know, you disappear to Brazil. Come back married. You know, it's kind of a tough way to build up trust.
        Steve: I really am trustworthy, though.
        Lip: Yeah, well, you're gonna have to do something bold to prove it.

      • Lip: Holy shit... they're still fucking?
        Steve: Sometimes it's fighting. Can't really tell the difference.

      • Carl: I shot a duck!
        Conrad: That's no duck. That's a bald eagle.

      • Debbie: It says there was a re-release program in the Michigan Peninsula. They let out ten bald eagles that had been raised in the Detroit Zoo into the wild.
        Carl: And one of them came to me last night.
        Kev: You know, there is something on his leg.
        Debbie: That's a tracking device. That way, they can monitor where it nests.
        Fiona: So, somebody knows that we have it?
        Debbie: Probably.

      • Carl: (to Karen's baby) That thing looks weird.
        Sheila: I think he looks beautiful.
        Debbie: What's wrong with him?
        Fiona: He has Down Syndrome, Debs.
        Lip: Yeah, and he's Asian.
        Kev
        : Maybe we're just looking at him upside down.
