Shameless

Showtime 2011

Chicagoan Frank Gallagher is the proud single dad of six smart, industrious, independent kids, who without him would be... perhaps better off. When Frank's not at the bar spending what little money they have, he's passed out on the floor. But the kids have found ways to grow up in spite of him. They may not be like any family you know, but they make no apologies for being exactly who they are.

It's been aired for couple of years now , I just don't know why haven't I seen it before . The Gallagher rock !!!!! I love it and I just can't wait for season 5

avatar

First 4 seasons were great, but in typical showtime fashion it jumped the shark late in it's run :(

avatar

Just wow! Really funny show, great story, music and actors. Just watch this! Do not doubt!

avatar

I can't believe this is such a good show. Funny and they act SOOOO well. I am hooked, in the past 3 weeks I have watched 6 of the 7 seasons.. OMG, the acting is sooooo good

avatar

Cannot believe what they've done to this show

avatar

Definitely more than one Gallagher in our family tree wtf

This show is probably the best dramedy out there. It's a mix so well put together that makes it so addictive. It tells the story of a family that is shameless indeed but also human. A must-watch show!

Favorite comedy show of all time

One word: addictive! I just started to watch this show and hope all the seasons are just like the first eps i've seen!

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
