Separated at birth

David Threlfall as Frank GallagherSince I got on the internet I find I watch less and less television (I guess you only have so much screen time). I do try not to miss Channel 4's "Shameless". Not only does it have great scripts, and an excellent set of performances, but it manages the difficult trick of seeming both over-the-top slapstick and realistic...

[Frank's voice over]
Now, nobody's sayin the Chatsworth Estate is the Garden of Eden, but it's been a good home to us, to me - Frank GALLAGHER - and me kids, who im proud of! 'Cause every single one of them reminds me a little... of me. They can all think for themselves! Which they've me to thank for. Fiona! Who's a massive help. Lip, who's a bit of a gobshite, which is why nobody calls him 'Philip' anymore. Ian - a lot like his mam which is handy for the others 'cause she's disappeared into thin air.61 next week, and doesn't look a day over 70 And Carl! We daren't let him grow his hair for two reasons; 1, it stands on end and makes him look like Toya and 2, nits love him. Debbie! Sent by God, total angel. You've to check your change, but she'll go miles out of her way to do you a favour. Plus Liam! Gunna be a star! Once we've got the fits under control. Steve; Fiona's boyfriend. The truth is out there... NOT. Fantastic neighbours, Kev and Veronica! Lend you anythin' - well, not anythin'. But all of them to a man... who knows first and foremost the most vital necessity is this life is they know how to throw a PARTY! Heh heh... Scatter!
