Carl gets his dream job
11 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After being sent to gaol in the opening episode of this series Frank's new love Libby is finally released. Once out she sets about looking for Frank despite her mother doing everything she can to dissuade her. When she turns up on the estate asking people if they know Frank everybody thinks she is from DHSS so tell her they don't know him and warn him to hide every time she comes near. Fearing that he could be losing his benefits he starts to get paranoid, likewise Libby starts to think he is avoiding her because he doesn't like her. When they finally meet it is clear that he wants to be with her and is willing to stand up to her poisonous mother. In one secondary plot thread Lillian believes she is receiving messages from beyond the grave on her new television and starts to give advice to the gullible locals until Kelly points out that all her prophecies come straight from the plots of the latest soap episodes. In another plot thread Jamie is trying to get out of his new job as gigolo, the problem is his main employer isn't keen to let him go, meaning he must find another man willing and able to to be paid to have constant sex... step forward Carl Gallagher.

This episode was pretty funny; the look on Carl's face when he realised he could get paid to have lots of sex with a beautiful woman was priceless. Valerie Lilley did a great job portraying Libby's mother, an utterly nasty character who rivals Joe for the title of "most odious Shameless character". After the last episode which was sex and nudity free this one returns to form so if you don't want to see thrusting buttocks or wobbling breasts give it a miss, if you aren't bothered by such things expect a good laugh.
