Shameless 405 – “There’s the Rub” (CR: Showtime)
Shameless Episode 5 'There's The Rub' - Promo Photos
Over the course of 40 episodes, Shameless on Showtime has been many things-- hilarious, touching, outrageous, gross, entertaining (in a big way), silly, sad-- but until I viewed this episode I'd not ever shed tears while watching the show. Yes, episode 4.05 made me cry. You don't really have any idea just how far down the rabbit hole the Gallaghers are going until it is too late--you are already there. And mind-blowingly enough, it is not due to something Frank did! I suppose that is part of why it just kicks you in the gut. I thought this season started a bit unsteadily. My watching partner said he was going to quit watching (in fairness, he has a really tight TV schedule, meaning not much time for watching). I wasn't about to give up so early in the season and I knew what it was missing so I had hope that the show would find its rhythm fairly easily. And boy, has it! Do NOT miss this episode.
