Amazing but needs to end
6 December 2018 | by shaa-50See all my reviews

This show was so addicting at the beginning i watched 5 seasons in 2 weeks which is impressive for me, but after the fifth season it started to get boring the same things are happening again and again there wasn't anything different that made me excited. I still watch it though I can't help but to know what is happening with the gallaghers. So i think 10 seasons should be enough. I'll miss shameless but at least it won't get worse by adding more season.
