    Shameless is a funny and heartwarming show. It reminds us that you don’t need to be rich … All you need is love in a family. But I also need to know what Lip decides to do with his life, and if Fiona ever gets to finish school.

    Shameless is the funniest show on TV ever. The Gallaghers are so dysfunctional they make the Bundys look like the Cleavers, but somehow it works for them.
