Binge-worthy: Shameless


There are some show theme songs that are marvelous at capturing the feel, tone, and well…overall theme of the show. Showtime’s Shameless theme song is “The Luck You Got” by the High Strung:

Shameless is set in Chicago, and that among other things, makes it an endearing series for me.

Oscar-nominated actor William H. Macy stars as Frank Gallagher, a single father of six who spends much of his free time drinking at bars. The Gallagher children — led by oldest daughter Fiona (Emmy Rossum), who takes on much of the child-rearing responsibility due to her mother’s absence — manage to raise themselves in spite of Frank’s lack of parenting and unusual parenting style when he does choose to act like a father. The drama is an adaptation of the BAFTA Award-winning British show of the same name. -Wikipedia
The shows creator, Paul Abbott told The New York Times,“It’s not ‘My Name Is Earl’ or ‘Roseanne.’ It’s got a much graver level of poverty attached to it. It’s not blue collar; it’s no collar.” Dig in 🍻.
