Welcome back kiddos!
Or should I say, sorry for the wait (not sorry, read the title).
I hope you can understand as I try to explain this phenomena of being so engulfed by a series that you rather stay in bed and watch Netflix then leave your house to socialize (talking to people... I know, annoying). The thing is, I’ve been on a binge and it’s taking over everything.
I have even stopped looking at YouTube videos, refrained from hanging out late and also I haven’t taken a nap in weeks (someone please send me to rehab, I don’t know who I’ve become).
Every here of Shameless? (not the UK one, the US one, and save your badgering for someone else I don’t care how great the UK one is). I am OBSESSED (like honestly and literally), and I don’t care. This show guys has made me cry, cringe and look away in horror while keeping 100% of my attention at all times and I am constantly on the edge of me seat (well I’m laying in bed but wtv).
That doesn’t happen often to me and yes usually I get attached to one character (that I find hot *insert cute chuckle*) or a specific plot, but Shameless has got me constantly wondering what the hell is going on with all the characters, even the side plots get me!
The show basically consists of a family that is very dysfunctional but together work out some pretty serious situations and help to explore some taboo topics that we don’t really talk about today. Imagine yourself watching this; a below the poverty line family of six, living on the south side of Chicago with an alcoholic father and a non-existent mom. Not only are they struggling to just survive (and they don’t make it look easy at all) they seem to just collect all the bad luck in the world. Yeah sounds basic and cookie-cutter but if you watch it (#TEOO do it guys) your perception of poverty and the reality of the world will be shattered.
Currently, I have only made it to season 6 and let me tell you, it’s very hard to go to bed at night (like sometimes I miss the gym). Fair warning to all you TV show lovers, this will get it’s dirty teeth stuck into you and infect you like a rattlesnake (yes be worried).
P.S.: Listen kids, I know this show isn't the "it" thing to watch but newsflash: I'm coming for you 13 reasons why, be ready (for another week of zero social life)
