Glad Shameless is back. Good soft opening to loosen up the transition from last season's winter malaise and into the thrills of summer for the Gallagher's. Let's face it, Frank will always be a drinker/drunk. The show's writers have pigeonholed themselves in with that character. but they do surprise us. Looks like a fun season can't wait.
Wow, this season kind of flew by, didn't it? It was still an interesting episode. You don't always need the cliffhanger or cliche gimmick for it to work (something blowing up, or people killed off). The finale was dedicated to James Rebhorn, Carrie's father. It was a nice touch to do that for the actor. Good for the producers! As for the finale storyline: they had to clear up loose ends, it did just that. Yeah, it wasn't pulse-pounding, but we are still intrigued and wondering where Season 5 might go. One angle might be Quinn and Carrie together in the same light as Brody. Maybe Quinn gets captured in Syria, or wherever he went? They have to get him out, and when he's back, Carrie and Saul might believe Quinn has turned (similar to what happened to Brody). Let the spy game chatter begin on Homeland Season 5! Can't wait for "Shameless" Season 5 in a few weeks.
Something big has to happen in the finale. Can't imagine this heading down anti-climatic land and Carrie goes home and wants to play Mom, while Lockhart, Saul and Dar Adal lock horns... in a bitch fest on motives. In short, someone else big has to die. Guessing it will be Haqqani. I thought Adal was still wrapped in the Iran thing; it was a curveball that he was thrown back into this storyline. That said, this season has been a lot better than last year's. A little surprised that we didn't see a glimpse of Jessica, Mike and Dana at the beginning--just to bring some clarity.
