Seems like an important set up episode, but definitely enjoyable. One of the funnier episodes ever even as Frank seems to be headed towards an unspeakable act...
Fiona's various love interests are shaping up to be very complicated, but they are definitely drawing her focus away from the family's struggles - most notably Lip's increasing Karen-obsession and Debbie's approaching breakdown.
The Frank and Dottie scenes I guess had their moments, but it was just a really awkward relationship even for this show and I thought they could have used him better. Veronica taking the old people off course was also incredibly predictable throughout the show.
Shameless is still good, but this was a bit of a step in the wrong direction. They're gearing too far from their roots right now.
