Shameless The Sins of My Caretaker
18 February 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

First of all the ending of the episode was quite dramatic as a social worker sees how the house is run which includes a girl with a penis, a bullet being taken out of a butt and Debbie screaming about sluts can only be a horrible sign for the family. Jimmy moaning around the place about his gay father was quite annoying and when Fiona screamed at him I was completely supportive of her and only was more on her side as he went back to sleep with Estefania. Jody and Shelia being on the show is a detriment to the show as they are just bad characters and the two having continues sex while a silent sister blogs about it is just a bad thing for the show. Debbie getting her revenge on those mean girls was great to see as the character continues to be one of my favourites. Lip and Mandy are a sweet couple together and the only stable ones which does seem surprising. The family's fight to dig up the body was funny showing how the family are in such bad circumstances. I hope I never have to see a scene like the one where Veronica's mom injected herself with Kevin's sperm for a baby. Emmy Rossum does such an amazing job on the show and it is sad she does not get recognition for her work on the show.

EPISODE GRADE: B+ (MVP: Emmy Rossum)
