After two seasons of rebelling against everything and anything, it finally seems like Debbie is about to calm down and support Frannie. Working with Fiona is not going to be the most pleasant working environment.
Fiona has well and truly moved on from all of the drama with Sean that closed Shameless Season 6. It's very rare to see Emmy Rossum's alter ego single. That's arguably the freshest thing about the new season of Shameless.
\"Requiem for a Slut\" was Shameless at its finest. It was a poignant hour full of emotional drama, but the end result was great. It showed just how far these characters have come since Shameless Season 1, while paving the way for an exciting change next season.
On a side note, it continues to baffle me that Emmy Rossum has yet to earn any sort of credible recognition for her portrayal of Fiona, who is, without question, the most complex and sympathetically-deserving of the Gallaghers. Her performances throughout the years have been consistently stupendous despite the show shifting to more of an ensemble-propelled story arc in the later seasons.
After bouncing back in a big way with its strongest showing yet, season 6, Shameless returns in all its heartfelt, bizarre, black-comedic glory for its seventh season slated in a cozy new fall slot. Continuing the life stories of Frank, Fiona, Lip, Ian, Debby, Carl, and Liam, this year finds the Gallaghers continuing their crawl out from the gutter with plenty of room to grow.
Season six was very good and it ended on an emotional note, with Fiona Gallagher not getting what she always dreamed of. Lip steered off course throughout the season, while Ian seemed to regain some sort of sense with his life. Here's how every episode from the seventh outing of the series ranks according to IMDb.
In the fifth episode of season 7, Frank finally gets some good news but he just can't figure out the catch. It turns out, some billionaire philanthropist has bought the house of the homeless, which means Frank and the others can stay but for how long
In the seventh episode of season 7, Fiona learns the rules of the business and as it turns out, the laundromat needs a lot more money to be run properly. She isn't liking what she is seeing, at the moment.
In the third episode of season 7, Kevin, Svetlana, and Veronica start a new venture and only time would tell how bright the idea is. Frank is also getting some thoughts of his own, as he gathers all the homeless people to take a stand.
In the first episode of season 7, some of the best moments come from Frank's return after waking up from a coma. He has been gone for a month and no one has missed him, which sounds about right, to be honest.
In the fourth episode of season 7, Fiona gets a really good idea to boost up business at Patsy's Pies as she throws a party. But convincing customers isn't an easy job, nor is being the owner of a business.
In the eighth episode of season 7, Lip has agreed to come up before the board of his college so that he could be reinstated but that's easier said than done. Also, Kevin isn't trusting Svetlana and his suspicions grow after the van goes missing.
The season 7 finale lives up to its billing. The Kevin, Veronica, and Svetlana storyline was really good and it came to a brilliant end. Also, as The Gallaghers mourn the loss of one of their own, Fiona, Lip, and Ian take steps for the betterment of their futures.
After 10 years and 11 seasons, Showtimes' hit series, Shameless, finally came to a close earlier this year. For the past decade, viewers have looked to the show for laughs, tears, and the much-needed reassurance that, \"Hey, my family isn't that bad after all!\" Throughout its long time on the air, Shameless' quality wavered from flawless to cringeworthy and back again. A lot. The show was never the most stable (in regards to both characters and writing), but that was half the fun. Viewers never knew which type of Shameless they were going to get and the only way to find out was to watch.
Even though it was a huge step up from the previous season, season 9 still did not live up to the standard that fans had come to expect. Part of the reason was this season acted as a direct sequel to season 8. Many of the sloppy plotlines that bogged the past season down continued into this season, mudding it for all the same reasons as its predecessor. Yes, the awful Gay Jesus storyline does make a reappearance.
Being the first season without Fiona as the leading lady, season 10 had a lot of issues to overcome and it showed. With their protagonist gone, the writers clearly struggled to find a new dynamic among the show's characters. The result was an aimless season filled with the cast acting various levels of out-of-character and making decisions that did not make sense given previous developments. For instance, Debby (Emma Kenney), the character who was previously one of the least responsible of all the Gallaghers, was suddenly deemed the new head of the family. Much like the rest of the season, it didn't make much sense.
The Gallaghers left season 6 at rock bottom. Fiona was abandoned at the altar, Lip fell prey to alcoholism, and the family cut ties with Frank (William H. Macy). Season 7 highlights how the gang can come back from that. Most of the lingering storylines from the first half of the series are tied up here, offering a sense of closure. Honestly, this season feels like an end to the series, odd given the fact that there are four more seasons after it.
And then came the season finale: the Thanksgiving episode. Yes, that Thanksgiving episode. A.K.A one of, if not the, most infamous episodes of the entire show. Long story short, the season ends with the Gallaghers' long-lost mother, Monica (Chloe Webb), attempting suicide during their holiday dinner. The episode is absolutely haunting and sets the tone for the entire series moving forward.
By the time season 3 came around, Shameless had found itself a loyal fanbase eager to see what was next for their favorite unethical family. What they got was a front-row seat for the consequences of the Gallaghers' actions.
The one that started it all and introduced audiences to the dysfunctional Gallagher family. There is a certain charm to the inaugural season of Shameless that just cannot be matched. When the show premiered back in 2011, there was truly nothing else like it on American television. In a time where sitcoms and fantasies were everywhere, the complete lewdness of its premise mixed with the poor morals of every single member of the Gallagher clan was oddly refreshing.
She took a break from guy drama and managed to occupy herself in starting her own business in hopes of working her way up. I loved how the writers were able to allow her that this season, and seeing that unfold was pretty amazing.
This season, Ian explores his sexuality more when he forms a relationship with Trevor, a transgender male. It felt like we got to see more of Cameron Monaghan this season, which I absolutely enjoyed. I mean, how can you not
If in addition to Ian reverting to his worst bipolar tendencies, season 9 becomes the season where Fi revisits her lowest point from season 4, it is perhaps understandable that Rossum sees it as time to make her exit stage left. Yet it also makes how they play her fall from grace crucial, given this finale left me a lot like the character: resigned to the destiny of being a Gallagher. Complete with its highs and lows. And to be sure, there were quite a few highs tonight.
'Friends, romans, countrymen, lend me your ears (eyes actually)'. I have circa 1563 #LinkedIn connections and want to test the theory of 7 (or significantly less nowadays) degrees of separation we all read about. Am big soccer fan, super-active volunteer on board of Bellevue United FC in PNW with 1000 kids in select/rec programs and post about that. I always give in my life and almost never ask for anything as you may know. I got interested in NFL a few seasons ago and watch SeaHawks on TV most games. Never been to a live NFL game at CenturyLink as I don't think paying $500+ to see a game from a nose-bleed seat is worth it to me. I am a Sounders FC season ticket holder and can see a whole home season of games for the same money. That said, I would like to see SeaHawks play live once in my life at the CLink in Seattle and hear the BOOM. If anyone wants to invite me into their box or offer up an unused seat at a game - must happen all the time - then I am good at buying beers, hosting events at my house and even washing dishes now and then after years of training in the UK. All ideas and constructive feedback welcome. If Russell Wilson responds to this (new owner at SoundersFC) then I will fall off my perch and be very impressed with LinkedIn reach. Lastly, (if you have had the energy to read this far, congrats) in my lecture on anthropology at Liverpool University in 1980 with 200 students in the room, our professor tested the 7 degrees of separation theory (almost 40 years ago now). He asked if anyone knew anyone in the Masai Mara (Kenya). One student jumped up and stated 'I have a Masai brother-in-law there'. I was impressed. As it turns out, I now have a brother-in-law with dreadlocks looking like Bob Marley in Kenya too. Life can be quite unexpected. Interested to see what, if anything, ripples back to my stone skimming across the pond ! 59ce067264
