    Shameless

    Just started watching this from the beginning, had only ever watched a handful of episodes before.

    It's absolutely hilarious. We started the first series yesterday and are already midway through the 2nd series! Interesting to see some famous faces in there as well such as James McAvoy and a few who went on to star in soaps.

    Shameless was brilliant. One of my fave programs of all time. I was rather gutted that they decided to call it a day.

    I tried the US Version, but its nowhere near as good as the british one.

    I haven't watched it from start to finish but thought there were some brilliant episodes. Really funny, but some real down episodes too.

    American one, like most remakes, was unnecessary. William H. Macy is too loveable to be Frank!

    I don't mean McAvoy went on to do soaps. The couple in the shop at the start were in Emmerdale, weren't they? And Carl in the Gallagher family.

    We're up to where the Kev & Veronica had a foster kid and he battered the seven shades of shit out of a girl at school

    Used to watch soaps from 18:30 to 21:00 every evening but haven't watched them in 6 years.

    Caught about 10 minutes of Emmerdale the other day and 3/4 of the cast is the same. The rest are just hot women they have added to it.



    A friend of mine was obsessed with your one Karen in Shameless, some dirtbird

    The Dingles have been around forever. It's my GF's favourite soap. She's into them all although thankfully, I managed to persuade her to stop watching Hollyoaks after the New Year specials were done. I just need to persuade her to do the same with Eastenders now...

    Karen What was she thinking, getting with Frank

    Up to series 3 now which I've never seen before, the Maguires are coming to the fore

    Getting towards the end of series 5 of Shameless now. It's not quite the same as it was at the start, is it? Lip, Steve and Fiona were good characters to begin with and I liked the neighbours being Kev and Veronica.

    Definitely seems to be all about the Maguires now rather than the Gallaghers.
