Storyline

Meet the fabulously dysfunctional Gallagher family. Dad's a drunk, Mom split long ago, eldest daughter Fiona tries to hold the family together. Eldest son Philip (Lip) trades his physics tutoring skills for sexual favors from neighborhood girls. Middle son Ian is gay. Youngest daughter Debbie is stealing money from her UNICEF collection. Ten-year-old Carl is a budding sociopath and an arsonist, and toddler Liam is - well, he might actually be black, but nobody has a clue how. Written by Showtime Publicity

User Reviews

 
Absolutely, Wildly, Unapologetically Awesome.
6 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For the record, this review is coming from a person who has never seen the UK version.

I think this show is very good. It has many great qualities. Great characters, touching story, and interesting plot. Emmy Rossum and William H. Macy are hilarious, and the rest of the cast is simply terrific. The story is very good as well. The family is so dysfunctional, its hard to resist. The characters are very well-developed and likable. Each episode is great and its interesting how many bad situations this family manages to get out of without getting in trouble.

A lot of people don't like this show because of its minor flaws, but if you look past those flaws, you will find this very enjoyable.

I highly recommend it.
