Let’s face it, nowadays, everyone is using Netflix, so why not jump on the bandwagon and be up to speed on one of the hottest shows out there. Given, it’s not a Netflix based show like Orange is the New Black which is also highly recommended but, Shameless is not far from what that show brings to the table. A show based off the United Kingdom version, it stars many new up and coming actors but has a few tricks up its sleeve with respected actors as well, for example, William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum. Shameless brings heavy emotional points but it also has it’s many ups which makes it a comedy also known in the entertainment world as a dramedy.
While this show brings an emotional depth to see what each character goes through all the while living off of little to no money, they still have one thing that will remain a constant, and that is family.
As one of the lead writers for this show, Mike O’Malley, says at one of their comic con panels in 2013, “The goal of this show is to make us all feel a little bit closer in the mistakes that we make and the lives that we lead… that’s my own goal in writing this show, is that to expose a little bit of humanity.”
All in all, this is one of the hottest shows to ever come about and many fans around the world can agree. With people on twitter saying, “I have to get my sleep schedule right but shameless is just too good” and “Officially convinced that I'll never find as good a show as Shameless in my life.” So, if you are looking for any new shows to watch or have the time or in fact, don’t have the time to binge watch a couple seasons, choose ShowTime’s critically-acclaimed, award-winning original series, Shameless.
