Showtime turns the Windy City into the Skin-dy City with its remake of the popular British series Shameless (2011). William H. Macy stars as the alcoholic patriarch of the Gallagher clan, a working class family willing to use any means necessary to keep afloat. Oldest daughter (Emmy Rossum) shoulders most of the responsibility for raising the kids, but is too explosively vivacious not to share her spark with the nightlife world. Her younger siblings include Lip (Jeremy Allen White), a straight-A student who uses his smarts in moneymaking schemes, closeted gay Ian (Cameron Monaghan), budding psychopath Carl (Ethan Cutkosky), anxious pre-teen Debbie (Emma Kenney), and the baby of the family, Liam (Brennan Kane Johnson and Blake Alexander Johnson). Their neighbors Veronica (Shanola Hampton) and Kevin (Steve Howey) may be kinky but they have hearts of gold, and help the Gallagher brood as they try to fend for themselves. Thankfully, Shameless isn’t skinless and William H. Macy shows his paternal posterior in multiple episodes full of sex, drunkenness and mayhem. The multitude of guest stars like Jack Carter, Justin Chatwin, Harry Hamlin and Zach McGowan provide many memorable moments of male flesh that makes for fantastic television.
