I Watched 'Shameless' On Netflix, And Here's 5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch

This may or may not be my second time watching the show, so I'd consider myself an expert.

Shameless cast

"Shameless" first aired in 2011 and followed with eleven subsequent seasons. The Gallagher gang is full of surprises as they take on the many challenges of growing up in the South side of Chicago. Fiona Gallagher, the eldest sibling, takes on raising five children in the absence of their mother and as her father Frank spends most of his time drinking at the local pub. Here are some of the major things to be weary of as you indulge on this show.

1. There is always a new low.

Shameless has to be the best show for always finding a new low in the Gallagher's lives. Most of these will make you feel a lot better about your life and all of the things you don't have to worry about on a daily basis.

2. Frank will unexpectedly parent at the most random of times.

Although usually drunk and clawing around for a new way to make money to buy more booze, Frank will unexpectedly parent every now and then. He actually has some pretty wise things to say but that doesn't override the fact that most of the time he's using one of the kids to get something he wants.

3. There are tons of sexual scenes - beware.

Most of the show is centered around who's banging who. It's hard to go an episode without at least one sex scene, so be weary if any youngins are around while you watch.

4. The Gallaghers always find a way out of it.

It may seem that one of the Gallaghers is always finding themselves in a pickle. Surprisingly, they always find a way out - whether it's framing or threatening someone. This is what makes the show all the worth-while to watch.

5. You will undoubtedly become obsessed with the Gallagher family.

In the strangest way ever, you will instantly be hooked on "Shameless" and binging episodes awaiting the next big thing to reek havoc in the Gallagher's lives so they can find their way out. The show is full of many twists and turns that will keep you hooked.

If I haven't scared you off yet, then you should hop onto Netflix and get binging on all eleven seasons.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire.

One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
