Disappointment after a loooong wait!!
27 November 2011 | by beresfordjdSee all my reviews

I watched 7 series of Shameless back to back over a two week period because I loved it but this series 8 is nowhere near as good as it should have been. Some of my favourite characters have returned but it seems as though the writers have run out of ideas for the most part. They have resorted on occasion to dream sequences, which is always a sign of a dearth of ideas. That said the stories improved slightly over the season but still did not reach the sublime heights (depths?) that the earlier seasons achieved. It is often the case with successful series that the quality drops off , it happened with great comedy series like Frasier and Friends but I really did not expect it to happen with Shameless.
