    I love this show but this premiere was so bad. The editing was bad mainly due to the directing.

    Ian was annoying. Don’t get me started on Debbie. V crossed the line. Lip is so annoying.

    Frank is great. I love that stuff is finally going well for Fiona.

    Great season premiere! Loved just about every direction each character is seemingly taking, especially seeing Fiona’s success and growing maturity (hoping it all isn’t short-lived) and Frank’s sobering turnaround (which will definitely be short-lived). It was also striking and sad to see the influences of Trump’s regime all through this episode. Somewhat heavy-handed in its overall execution, but this series isn’t exactly known for its subtlety. Can’t wait for more Gallagher antics this season! Welcome back!

    Much better episode. It had some bad moments, but a lot of great moments. The cancer storyline felt forced in. It could have been stretched out. I enjoyed the rent money scenes. Great performances from Hampton, Rossum, Macy, White, and Monoghan. I enjoyed that Liam is being treated as an actual character.

    Really liking the storylines for this season so far, though it seems like the core Gallaghers are being spread out thinly without a great deal of interactions. The show’s greatest strengths are with its ensemble interactions, but I have read that things start to converge by mid-season to end. Macy and Rossum are both as strong and confident leads as ever. Seems like a missed opportunity to resolve Kevin’s dilemma so soon, but that’s how this show rolls, I guess …

    Legit why do so many people on social media freak out about how much they love Lip. JAW plays him pitch perfect but bruh he ain’t even cute.

    This was just amazingggg! Finally the ensemble rallied together to fix things and was all the better for it. It’s “Shameless” being its best!

    This episode was very entertaining. Rossum was fabulous.

    I think I can finally call this show a comedy. Loving this season! And I fucking love this new Frank. No, excuse me, Francis. I hope he stays this way. And fuck Debra Messing, I want Emmy Rossum to win that Golden Globe. She’s long overdue.
