William H. Macy is the part part of this show. Movie actor decided to find a TV project and went into it as the big star but everyone else around him shines brighter. Every time he has a scene he seems out of context, like he is try to be something he isn’t. Fiona is excellent. She is the center of the show and the kids as well. I was absolutely enjoying this show until Season 8 then I absolutely really lost interest due to the themes in Season 8. Even though the show has A lot of nudity and sex scenes which I could have lived without, when season 8 shows people worshiping Ian as “Gay Jesus”, and chanting absolutely disgusting things about Jesus & God, that was it for meg. I’m not a religious nut or anything but it was just beyond anything I think a normal person would be ok with. I guess a good show that has run out of ideas has taken the wrong road south.

Movie Quality: 5/10

Final Thoughts

This series clearly makes a statement regarding the American viewing audience. The actors, especially the two stars, make the very most with what they have to work with – but even they can’t save “Shameless” after this season.
