A review of the "Shameless" season premiere coming up just as soon as I run to the store for baby supplies... Last season was by far the darkest "Shameless" stretch to date, but it didn't start out that way. Remember, at this time a year ago, Fiona had her job at the cup company, and the Gallaghers had made it over the poverty line. In general, the warm weather months at the start of each season tend to be a time for wacky hijinks before the snow and the consequences pile up later in each season. So the fact that things are going relatively well for all the Gallaghers isn't automatically a sign that the show is stepping back from the drama and the tragedy that made last season so great; this is just summer in Chicago, when the living is (relatively) easy, and the diner bosses are in abundance. »
