Can Shameless Get Any Crazier?

Shameless if one of the best TV shows ever for its atrocious, bizarre, non-sense story plot. Still, it seems to get even more surreal at every episode, and that's what makes it so addicting!


Last Sunday's episode just went over board with the craziness, though.

So Fiona has been struggling to keep her job at the supermarket. She has been a victim of sabotage from her bitchy co-workers. What makes those women think Fiona is guilty for their stupidity, is still beyond me. Why weren't they smart enough to think to get themselves something to use to blackmail their abusive boss? Ladies, please use your head for something more than just to hold your hair, and stop hating on smart girls who have their lives together.

Thank you.

Anyway, all the kids were taken away by child services due to an "anonymous call" - that we all know was made by the children's own dad, Frank, in revenge for them not letting him in the house when he comes back from God knows where.

So getting it straight: the man comes home drugged and drunk, after he ran away for who knows how long...and the kids didn't have the right of wanting their irresponsible drug addict father out of the house?! If the dictionary was just a compilation of pics, the word "Shameless" would have Frank's picture as THE definition. Dude has the biggest wooden face!

The poor children who are already dysfunctional and will probably never have a normal life, are now separated and sent off to different shelters. Mean while, Frank tries to run away again - wow! shocker! - but Fiona finds him just in time and makes him stay to help her getting the kids back home. 

In order to get his kids back, he has to keep himself clean until the court date. And let's talk about an impossible mission on that portion of the agreement!

He is advised that he would be submitted to a random drug testing. Not very surprisingly, he can't keep himself away from drugs, and takes a pill when he starts withdrawing from drugs and alcohol. So smart-pants Frank pees in a cup before he takes the pill. When asked to urinate in a cup for the test, he goes into the bathroom with the supervisor - when you think you have seen everything in that TV show - he starts to pour the "clean pee" out of his mouth into the cup pretending he is peeing.

A thousand times, ew! Our beloved Ke$ha would probably do that scene like a champ, don't you think?!

There were so many other things that as I watched, I had my jaw drop to the floor thinking "That shit cray." I could probably write a book here if I keep on naming everything that happened. I strongly recommend you Insticators to watch, if you haven't yet!

And that's what makes Shameless...


Who watched that episode? What did you think about it, and what do you think comes next episodes?
