Shameless: Dad is a Twin Lip and Ian try to track down one of Frank's brothers.
These two actors -- Jeremy Allen White as 'Lip' and Cameron Monaghan as 'Ian', have done an ace job of making their sibling relationship seem believable despite how very different they are in every other way. I really enjoy their scenes together but with so much going on in the Gallagher household-- I forget how much I do until they have another scene--like this one.
Shameless: St. Patty's Day Party
Fiona helps with decorations for Deb's St. Patty's Day party.
Aww (watch the video). What can I say about Emmy Rossum as Fiona? She can slay you with just one look. This character is so layered--tough and vulnerable, street smart but hopeful to the point of naivete--when it comes to men, anyway. Always frazzled-looking as she would be if she were doing what Fiona does---but dressed up for the occasional club night, she is an ethereal beauty.
From the first episode it felt to me like Fiona Gallagher was the heart of the show-- she takes care of everyone in her universe and does it with aplomb. The fact that her heart is big enough to include even her drunken, selfish, narcissist of a father is a testament to how good a person 'Fi' is.
Shameless has become my favourite dramedy on television. I would say favourite show but after five years savouring one of Showtime's other stellar series --Dexter--I simply can't cross that off. But, thankfully they are totally different shows so I can like them both 'the best'.
