I am a fan but this show is NOT for kids. Of any age.

Uh...at 38, *I* can barely watch this show. While I am a fan and it is beautifully acted and I do root for the success of the Gallagher kids, there is simply NO way would I allow any of my kids to watch this. EVER. (How the parents of the child actors on this show remain ok with their kids being on this show is a mystery to me, frankly.)

Ok for Teens

Definitely not appropriate for small children, but teenagers can watch. They speak and swear in a true to life form - overall it does have positive messages and shows the strength of the family.

Shameless

I think this show is really good but It also has alot of nudity, and language in it. I think Fiona is positive role model because she took on the role of raising her 5 younger siblings and more sisters won't do that.

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.
