Storyline

The story of a young group of siblings pretty much abandoned by their parents, surviving by their wits - and humor - on a rough Manchester council estate. Whilst they won't admit it, they need help and find it in Steve, a young middle class lad who falls for Fiona, the oldest sibling, and increasingly finds himself drawn to this unconventional and unique family. Anarchic family life seen through the eyes of an exceptionally bright fifteen year old, who struggles to come of age in the context of his belligerent father, closeted brother, psychotic sister and internet porn star neighbors. Written by Company Pictures (website)

Trivia

They never show Fiona's tongue on her grey lowtop Chucks because that's where the official "ALL STAR" logo is. This could be because they never got the permission or didn't try. See more »

Brilliant
15 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After clicking on this website and reading the completely rubbish review by someone which everyone supposedly must read before doing anything else-I thought I better tell everyone that it is completely wrong! Shameless is brilliant, series 2 has just started and I recommend everyone to watch it.

Yes it contains swearing and other things but if you don't want to watch that don't. Above all this is comedy at its best. I'm a 14 year old girl and I think its one of the best shows I have seen-it will make you laugh hysterically.

Watch it you might be surprised-if nothing else it will give you the feel good factor.
