    Hey all, anybody been catching the new series Shameless that started on Showtime this month? My wife and I are absolutely loving it! Sure there's some pretty zany/off the wall stuff that this family pulls, but for all it's dysfunctionality, gosh is that a word lol, it's not too bad. Plus you gotta love William H. Macy for playing the blundering, drunken scheming father. Thoughts?

    i don't get Showtime, but all i know about it is that Emmy Rossum gets topless a fair amount as well as her having sex scenes.

    Yep, the girlfriend and I have been watching it. I must admit it is pretty entertaining and seems to be well done. For anyone that hasn't seen it, it is worth checking out.

    I watched about 3 eps and like it a lot. Unfortunately we decided not to continue subscribing the Showtime after our free period was up so I haven't seen any recent eps. I may Netflix it once the DVD is out so I can watch rest of the season. I hope the show will get picked up for 2nd season. Rossum is hot & sexy and Macy's brilliant as a perpetually drunk dad.

    Macy definitely has the drunk down perfectly. His perpetual shaking and stumbling and slurring is spot on. This show is much more entertaining than I expected.

    I found myself really missing the show, much more so than Californiacation and Episodes (which was amusing at times but not that funny imo). Macy and Rossum are the reasons to watch the show.
