Fifth season of the offbeat and outrageous Channel 4 family drama following the lives and loves of the anarchic Gallagher family, who live on a rough council estate in Manchester. As this series begins, Frank (David Threlfall) has a bizarre, drug-induced encounter with his younger self, Lillian (Alice Barry) comes up with a surprising way to make money, and Lip's (Jody Latham) shady past catches up with him - leading to a violent confrontation in the pub, with shocking consequences.

Apparently one-dimensional 'joke' characters like the Maguire sons Shane and Mickey are given meaty, fascinating storylines (not a little moving, at times). As always, everyone is flawed but no one is entirely unsympathetic - I'm really getting to like the Maguires, which I never thought I would (though Monica, the Gallaghers' mum, remains the least likable character).
Who would have thought that a character as central to the series as Lip (probably, along with Frank, THE central character) could disappear off to university and life carry on happily without him? He does appear - indeed, there is something very realistic about his estrangement from Mandy, the mother of his daughter - but he's no longer central to the action. If there is a new 'central' character, it looks as though Carl is stepping up to fill his shoes, though that would be unfair to Debbie, Ian and the others.
What is demonstrated in this series is how much of an ensemble piece Shameless is: everyone has their moments and everyone's contribution is excellent. And that, of course, is as it should be: it's all about community and helping one another out, after all. Shameless goes from strength to strength.
The Maguires come into their own in this series, and there is a warmth and humanity to Mimi and Paddy which was only hinted at in Series 4. That said, I still wouldn't want them living next door to me! Norma also becomes a tragic yet likeable character in this series. Carl Gallagher has evolved, and he seems to take the place of Lip, who's away at uni for most of this series.
I know it's said all the time, but there really aren't enough shows like this on our screen. There's only so much dross like X Factor and Britain's Got Talent we can take! Well done to Paul Abbott and the other writers and actors for what, for me, has been the most enjoyable TV series since Auf Wiedersehen, Pet.
How wrong was I with out doubt Shameless has gone from strength to strength
and just when you think it wouldn't be possible to better the last series,along came series 5 wonderful the best yet. Thank you everyone at Shameless
I thought the end would come when we lost Veonica, Kev last series and then Lip. But no, the endless shennanigan's of the Maguire's and the Gallagher's who were left has kept me hooked.
I for one will purchase the DVD for a re-watch time and time again.
Bring on Series 6. This isn't over yet.....
