    I guess the action in this thread means the new season started already? I wasn't aware it was back yet.
    Get into DB....last week's show alone seemed like two shows. So full of activity. One thing you can never say about the production team, that they take the safe, secure route. It's like a volcano goes off every 15 minutes or so. And the characters are very well defined.

    As for Fiona, I have another take on her this season...that she will end on either a real high or real low.

    Shameless, if possible, is on steroids of late....and I luv it!! It's clear though, that Fiona's time is nearing end on the show, and something very good or very bad will happen to her. Right now she is a pain in the butt either way. She has become one of my least favs these days..

    But what happened to Lip alone last night is almost too much for one dude to take. My goodness, I can hardly remember all the twists and turns that took place in just one show!! Now that's what I call serious plot development/changes.

    I was wondering when the next season was. We donít keep up with it live. The question becomes do I spend $15 one month to get Showtime and catch it all on demand? Or wait till Netflix. Iím not sure how long after season ends before it hits Netflix.

    And as for Fiona I havenít liked her in many years.

    Ha ha....I called her Thiona! That was 'shameless' of me!! I guess I don't love her enough to remember her name!! Now Lip and most of the others are in my good books! Anyway DB, I like this season quite a lot. Hopefully you can catch it at some point. I will not reveal anything too important, other than it is happening quickly!

    I make sure to watch it every week. Preferred tv for me.

    I am not sure if the show continues, but as has been discussed a bit here previously, I believe the show can easily survive minus Emmy Rossum (Fiona), who is leaving. There are many interesting characters and plot possibilities without her. I was good with here in previous seasons, but her character has gone whacko (IMO), and seems like one of the few mistakes of the writers....that is, pending how she departs. But yah...the show must go on!!

    I used to have Showtime as an included channel in our directv package. At one point we watched 5-6 different shows on Showtime.

    But many of my favorites (house of lies, californication, weeds and dexter) all ended and I just havenít taken an interest in enough of their new shows for it to be valuable.

    So now we just try to wait until we can binge Homeland and Shameless in the same month. Which Homeland is also going away after 1 more season.

    And with Shameless now always heading to Netflix the value of a month of showtime just isnít there.

    I get you pal. Life's ongoing decisions. Can't have everything, all the time. I can send you my "Coles Notes" version every week, and I am very inexpensive!!

    Just turn right....

    FTR....Emmy Rossum (Fiona) is a very talented performer, and has a fantastic singing voice. Not her fault that the writers write, what they write.

    It’ll be interesting to see what they do with Fiona. The writers said they won’t kill her off....but something has to happen to move her away.,

    As long as frank is around,,,I think the show will continue. There are way too many storylines with Carl,Liam, deb, Ven and Kevin to have to stop because of Fiona’s absence.

    I agree....this show has more left in it. I hardly even think about Fiona's character, other than she has become a liability. But yes, the characters are plentiful and interesting, (they even have Ian who is so talented that he has a big role on Gotham as well), the skies the limit, and as we've seen, the storyline can go from 0 to 100 in 4 seconds flat!!

    I love me some Shameless - but it's starting to get stale. They need to have a series finale sooner rather than later.


    To be honest, the only character I'm really invested into is Lip.

    Frank's story got old. Fiona's 'strong independent women' motto got boring. Ian's gay/bipolar/Jesus thing was more annoying than anything. Debbie is... Debbie. Carl was more fun when he was a kid.

    Yep, Lip is all I really care about.


    Anyways, I gotta catch up on season 9. I haven't seen any of the newer episodes since Fiona crashed her car.

    I think you will like the new season so far. But for the reasons you state, there comes a time when folks need a change. But yes, I am a Lip fan. Am hoping that he someday returns to college to pursue his brilliance.

    My goodness....I think that's it for season 9. No spoiler alerts. Just want to say that I liked the last show very much.

    Hope there's another season. If not, it ended on a strong note.
