Shameless? More like Shameful
on 22 April 2010
Swearing doesn't bother me, far from it, Reservoir Dogs is my favourite film if that helps any.
My big problem with Shameless is that it isn't funny. AT ALL. I watched four episodes on television and didn't laugh once. Everyone says that it's a well written show by a visionary, Paul Abbott and that it's amazingly realistic. Shakespeare was a visionary, Abbott is a tool. I don't think it's even that true to life, I know many people from council estates and they live perfectly ordinary lives. In Shameless, everyone on the estate is taking drugs and having affairs, it's just ridiculous.
In short, it's not funny and it's not realistic. 1/5
