Just found my boxset upstairs. Forgot how good it actually used to be until the last 3 shitty series

I loved it but it got silly and went on far too long.

It was good but I had to give up watching it, as it was also, for me, incredibly depressing.

Worth it for James McAvoy. Oh yum.

Id say upto 6/7 was excellent, 8 was watchable and the final 3 were awful and only watched it because I had from day one.

I loved it when it first came on, but it went seriously downhill when Anne Marie Duff (?) left. And I can't bear that Liverpudlian fishwife who was mother of the gangster family.

So YANBU and YABU. Depends whereabouts you watch it up to.

Its all on 4od whois!

Unfortunately i haven't managed to get 4OD to AirPlay from my phone to the TV. I player works fine. Not sure why I can't get 4OD up there.

I loved shameless too the earlier series were far better they were filmed near me too I agree though the American series was crap.

I actually thought the American version was better than the British version and loved the both of them.

ElasticPants Mon 21-Dec-15 21:39:08

The American version was awful, as was their version of The Office.

The early seasons were the best. The more Gallagher's lost, and more storylines revolving round the Maguires ruined it imo.

Brilliant early series.

IndridCold Mon 21-Dec-15 21:54:23

YANBU, the first 3 or 4 series were totally brilliant!

Loved the first few series.

Is till sob like a fool when Steve has to leave and Fiona realises she can't go with him.
That scene in the kitchen when one by one they move to stand with Ian and then when breaks down after Steve and Tony drive away.

My favourite characters were Fiona, Steve, Veronica, Kev and Sheila so it's definitely early Shameless that I love best

I agree the first two series were the best but I still enjoyed up to about series six - though it did get a bit dark in that one with the Paddy MacGuire storyline. I gave up on it for the last few series.

And I never, ever could like the Frank Gallagher character.

I thought the actress that plays Kylie in coronation street appeared as maxine doneally (she had a fling with Carl and was Ian, s girlfriend )but apparently not a completely different actress but they do look very alike.

I love it, just watched all on 4od again. Agree early series are best though

Does anyone know where I might be able to watch the American version?

Mmmmcake123 Tue 22-Dec-15 02:54:49

Never saw the appeal tbh, just gross from the start. However, references to the office! Love UK office and wasn't overly interested in US office, but if you search US office fire drill it's hilarious, Al's us office parlour, both very funny.
Shameless mmm shit IMO xx
