After swearing that we wouldn’t get hooked on another television series, we have fallen off of the wagon and have bonded with the Gallagher family of Showtime’s Shameless. I like Emmy Rossum and her “Angelina-Lite” sort of vibe. While William H. Macy is a little too good and sometimes hard to watch, Joan Cusak is perfect and often seems like she could be Blanche Dubois’ towering mid-Western cousin. I also love the attention to detail of the different sets. The Gallagher house looks like that of a working-class family of 7 where cereal, more often than not, is on the dinner menu. I was a bit jolted when I was imagining myself hanging out with them there–and not feeling uncomfortable amid all the chaos.
