Great but prob time for it to end!
21 August 2020 | by RobScott-13See all my reviews

I'm going to miss Shameless so much even though the last season wasn't as good without Emmy Rossum! I have loved this show since Season 1 so it's going to be hard to say goodbye even though it's probably time to do so. Shameless has been such a great show for so long and I'm going to miss it!
