Watch Shameless

Frank Gallagher is an alcoholic, a loser, a wash-up, and a scoundrel. He's a good-for-nothing father, an absentee (ex)-husband, and a petty old pervert. He's also dangerously lovable. As Frank romps and rolls his way through life, riding the crest of one wave to the next in a boozy bender of lies, debauchery, and degradation, the members of his family struggle with their own mistakes, mishaps, and blunders. Kept together by the eldest daughter, Fiona, each Gallagher has their own loves, secrets, anxieties, and troubles.
