  1. It’s the 4th season of Shameless that is on at the moment. It has been renewed for a 5th. The 4th season has been the best.

    Emmy Rossum is also very good.

    I prefer Threfall’s Frank, he has some charm. Macy’s version is largely evil, so when they try to do sentimental stuff with the character it just doesn’t ring true.
