SHO's Shameless - TV Review
This one I did not like. Unquestionably Emmy Rossum is going to have many great acting scenes as the oldest daughter of a poor family where the mom's dead and the dad's a useless drunk, but since almost all the kids engage in illegal activity to pay the bills, I don't think I really want to watch William H. Macy let his family down week after week. The poster makes it look like a wacky family, but it's actually more serious (preview for episode 2 shows he hits one of his kids). The reality is Macy would lose custody and these kids would be in foster care.
