Shameless TV Show on Showtime must be paid for by Big Tobacco
This show has every single character, even showing a 12 year old, smoking excessively. There is constant smoking of pot and cigarettes in the faces of infants, even a newborn.
The word "fuck" is used no less than 40 times PER episode. There is also the actual sex act in every single episode with FULL female and male nudity. I realize this is a cable channel (Showtime) but it's constant and unnecessary to story line. This show is about how far a cable network can push the boundaries to shock its audience with sex, nudity, profanity and drug/cigarette use.
Also, despite all the awful shock to viewers, the characters can't be believed. There is no way anyone can be this stupid and ignorant. If Showtime wants porn to be broadcast in prime time, then go for it. You'll have the scum of the earth there to watch. However, to expect even the scum of the earth to attach to the characters and believe characters portraying real people can be that stupid is stupid.
I'm so sorry I wasted even 10 minutes of my life trying to watch this awful show. I saw more penis/tits/balls/asses and heard the word "fuck" far too often in that 10 minutes too. Pathetic Showtime....pathetic.
