Shameless Season 8 Episode 10 Review: The Church of Gay Jesus

I really loved this week’s episode of Shameless. It built up so many areas of the show in ways I didn’t expect. “The Church of Gay Jesus” also felt like a movie, but I can’t place why. Maybe it was how Fiona’s relationship with Ford progressed, or the way Kassidy manipulated Carl. I thought the…

Shameless Season 8 Episode 8 Review: Frank’s Northern Shuttle Express

This week’s Shameless was available online two days early – a smart move, Showtime, considering the approaching holiday.

Last night’s episode of Shameless was a set up for next week. I’m not always excited about this type of episode, but there were two plot points that made the episode interesting. The lulls of “Where’s My Meth?” were with Fiona and her attempt to be a nice landlady. Doesn’t she know she’s dealing with her people?…

Shameless Season 8 Episode 1 Review: We Become What We…Frank!

A friend who recently binged all seven seasons of Shameless remarked that the last season wraps things up nicely, so what will they do in season eight? This is an excellent question, and after rewatching the end of season seven and the season eight premiere, I have the answer. Season eight of Shameless is going to…
