What I’m Watching: Shameless

Shameless: Season 6, Episode 5 “Refugees” (B+)

So it really happened – they lost the house. Poor white supremacist Chucky tried to get in to the padlocked door because no one told him that all their stuff had been thrown out in the yard, but the Gallaghers are officially one. Fortunately, Veronica and Kev are feeling awfully charitable, and they’ve taken in a few Gallaghers along with their child soldiers from Myanmar who, naturally, Kev misunderstood to be from Miami. It was a trying hour for the family, Fiona most of all, especially since she had to get two reality checks, one from Sean about her family not being welcome around his son and the other from Svetlana about earning a living and working for it. Carl, or White Chocolate, trying to rent an apartment didn’t work out so well, and I’m worried that he’s going to create a whole army with his new bunkmates. It was fun to watch Ian start a brawl between the gay firemen and the gay cops, which included Tony, and then actually consider dating a man instead of just having sex with him. Everything seemed so perfect with Helene, and it’s terrible to think that allowing Amanda to take a picture in his dorm room could ruin the entire thing forever. I do hope this isn’t the last we’ll see of her, but I think that it may be. Debs isn’t having the easiest time winning over her future husband, but she made some progress, though it’s nothing compared to Frank, who found Erica to be an entirely different person than he expected.
