I first thought, Ugh, A US remake of a UK Classic – then I actually watched it. It’s brilliant!
Shameless (US Version) is like an R-Rated Party of Five. It’s like watching a car crash, it’s disturbing but strangely hypnotic, exciting and moving. I found myself liking the characters, they are quite liberal, and without restriction, and they get into some ‘interesting’ situations.
Update: Saw the second episode last night, it’s still brilliant. Expect this to be the next top, talked about show!
