Default Shameless

There is a storyline on Shameless (Showtime) involving a "throuple". It starts about the middle of Season 6. The show is hilarious. Does anyone watch the show?

MrS and I watch it together, but we aren't that far along yet (due to my schedule, the boys are often in the midst of a movie or something when I get home from work ). Love the Veronica and Kevin side story.

I had not heard of Shameless before, is it mostly a relationship show?

It is a show about a dysfunctional family living in the south side of Chicago. The father is played by William H. Macy. He is an unreliable alcoholic and drug addict. His kids are left to fend for themselves, being raised by the oldest sister. Veronica and Kevin are neighbors who own the local bar.

It's a very gritty dark comedy. It is on Showtime.

Has anyone seen the original (2004-2013) UK series? I find that a show I don't particularly like (for instance The Office) is enjoyable in its first form.

I do plan on watching the original at some point. I do like some British comedies, but sometimes they can be hard to relate to.

I've seen both the British and the American version and think that they are equal in the level of writing and acting. Haven't seen season 6 yet, so thanks for the heads up. Seasons 1-7 of Shameless are on Netflix.
