Carl is one of my favorite characters

Lip is a favorite too

I really like the Russian chick Svetlana too but I'm not sure what season she first appears.


Season 3 I think. She was the Russian prostitute that was going to <bleep> the <bleep> out of Mickey while Ian watched. Milkovich Sr. is quite the thug of a parent too.

Mandy Milkovich got a boring sendoff but I think that had to do with real life stuff. As in the actress got a better gig.

Svetlana had a small role at first but she hangs around and becomes a main supporting character in the more recent seasons

Whelp... I'm caught up. The end of season 7 was pretty brutal.

It should be called "Hopeless"

With each character, as soon as you think they're turning a corner, they have another setback

It is kind of like 'Requiem for a Dream' but with over the top humor. In RfaD I found myself rooting for the characters to finally succeed even though they're headed down the path of self destruction.
I consider RfaD to be the most depressing movie ever made. If it were not for the humorous delivery of 'Shameless' it would be just as dark.

Requiem had some dark humor but I agree that it was mostly a Depressing movie
