Watch Shameless online free – It is an absolutely awesome show, a lot of American remakes of British TV shows suck, i.e Skins, but than you get the good ones like Being Human and this. This show pick a bunch of actors who are well suited to their rolls, including Joan cusack, who hasn’t seen much lately, but she found her way as a crazy Agoraphobic. The show is entertaining, also includes a great comedic side, but holds it’s family drama genre in place, it’s interesting to see the outcome of each episode.
It has good music, intriguing themes and great use of a comedic look at an alcoholic father unlike a lot of other dramas. Can’t wait to see more.
Actor: Emmy Rossum, William H. Macy, Ethan Cutkosky,

Review Shameless by Tomdavie – Keep Watching
I have never watched the British version of this show so I cannot comment on the original. I was under the impression it was a new Showtime story.
I have to admit that started watching because I have always been a fan of William H Macy. However, viewing Macy in this kind of role was startling . I had always seen him in more conventional-almost typecast – parts. I knew that Joan Cusak was a quality actress which lent the project some further credibility.
At first the show seemed to be almost forced. The plot seemed bizarre, and unbelievable. It seemed awkward. Its quite common for shows to take time to develop chemistry when the actors haven’t defined their characters yet. The same can be said for the writers.
However, I had never seen anything like it. In that regard it was dynamic and worth the time. The young actors soon found their roles and by the 5th episode I found myself thinking about the show every day.
Now I cant stop watching. Im addicted. The actors are fantastic. The plots are far more developed. The supporting players play a big part in the series, and new characters keep rotating in flawlessly. The show has evolved.
And just for the record, Im getting really sick and tired of people trashing the show because in their minds it doesn’t measure up to the original. Its not supposed to be the original. If you don’t like it, stick with the British show.

Review Shameless by clem myers – A triumph of American television
I’ve grown up with the original Shameless. It’s a fast paced Comedy-Drama like no other, in that it lends itself perfectly to both without apology or hesitation.
Whereas the British original finds it’s characters living, fornicating, screaming and jumping in the revelry of zero-expectation in a rigid class system, the American remake masterfully equivocates the triumphs and the tribulations of a lower class family existing on the edge of acceptability at the heart of society in a flawless, delicate and shameless manner.
The pilot introduces the characters, much like their British counterparts, not in an effort to garner their sympathy but simply as a statement of fact. The aspiring teen marine struggling to hide his homosexuality only fears losing the love of his brother, the absent drunk dad who loves his children but through the haze becomes a heckling prophet – a Shakespearean fool who sees through the thin veil of sanity and order, a young woman struggling to keep the family together seeing a way out through a handsome highwayman. These people are not bad even if they do bad things. Society has forgot about them and for that they couldn’t care less for it.
The whole cast is tremendous but William H. Macy rises to the occasion with the father, a Frank Gallagher straight out of a bar in Memphis at 3 a.m. on a Wednesday, last orders, don’t interrupt him because he hasn’t finished yet, he’s got to tell you what’s wrong with the world before he wakes up and it all ends. You would believe this guy was a war vet or something with the confidence and delirium at which he pontificates.
No matter what your race or background you can take something away from Shameless. Most television that likes to call itself Comedy, Drama, or both, tends towards a particular demographic, offering an escape fantasy for, say, the ‘off-beat’ teens in Glee or the sexually deviant young adults in True Blood or the repressed housewives in that show about the repressed housewives.
As the designated guardian’s new boyfriend takes a seat at the head of the table, he pushes Frank’s legs aside as he crashes drunk on the floor. Shameless doesn’t escape anything, it lives in the world it is given and every so often reminds you, during those joyously chaotic scenes, that the sweetest lemonade is almost bitter, so it’s just as well every episode is only an hour for you to laugh, cry and enjoy.
Moments of anarchic jubilation inter lap, run over and sometimes juxtapose flourishes of near-the-bone reality, served eloquently on a fresh platter to which America needs to to have the stomach for.
Review Shameless by Skysaxon – Fluid direction, crisp script, helmed by trio of fine performances
Note: I have not seen the UK version.
I wasn’t sure what to make of the first episode of Shameless. I wasn’t sold on the characters and the direction seemed directionless. In fact, it wasn’t until the third ep that my eyes were opened. It’s as if the actors have found their mark and the characters have come to life.
While the ensemble cast is solid, and Macy is at his irascible best, it is the performance of three of the actors which makes Shameless something special. Emmy Rossum, as the ‘adult’ glue that holds the family together, has rightly received the most press. Her role requires a combination of strength, resolve, humour and vulnerability – qualities that would thwart a lesser actress. Rossum is able to convincingly bring it all together with fire and sexuality in addition to her other qualities.
Equally effective in his role as the younger brother Lip, Jeremy Allen White brings a world-weary innocence to his character. Blessed with a malleable physiognomy, White is at once rascal and protector of the brood. White makes us want to know Lip better. That’s rare.
In a smaller role but probably my favourite is Emma Kenney as little sister Debbie. Her deadpan wisecracks supply the laugh-out-loud moments while her heartbreaking scenes of longing for parental love bring a tear to the eye of the most hardened soul. She can act toe-to-toe with Macy and still steal the scene.
The rest of the cast is almost as good. Their performances would be wasted, however, without a tight script and fluid – but not frenetic – direction. The third episode brought all these pieces together in a fascinating show. Whether the writing and direction can sustain this level of quality over a season we don’t know. What we do have for now is some of the best ensemble acting you will see on TV or on film.
Review Shameless by Imazombie – For those who’ve never seen the original
Many of the reviews on here are complaining about how much the U.S. version copies the original. I’ve not seen a single episode of the original and, to me, the U.S. version is well acted, entertaining and perhaps one of my new favorites. I could care less that it’s word for word from the original because this is all new to me. The actors portray the characters amazingly and I feel the storyline represents struggling families realistically. Each character will remind you of someone you know or have known. So for those who are like me and you’ve never seen the original, I absolutely suggest checking out Shameless, the U.S. remake. I look forward to seeing the rest of the season and maybe one day I’ll even check out the original.
