Covering 16 discs, these are the complete first 5 series of the BAFTA award-winning "Shameless" created by Paul Abbott plus the feature length Christmas and New Year Specials.
"Shameless" is the brilliantly funny drama series following the roller coaster lives and loves of the highly un-orthodox yet extremely tight knit Gallagher family.
Head of the family, in name only, is Dad Frank - a feckless, charmless, self-pitying, unemployed bully - a model father. Since mum went AWOL, dad hit the bottle leaving his six remarkably well-adjusted children Fiona, Lip, Ian, Debbie, Carl, and Liam to fend for themselves. But the Gallaghers need not worry anymore, now they've teamed up with the local gangsters the Maguires, who continue to explode the myth of a conventional family.
The Sunday Telegraph newspaper said, "Very funny, extremely rude and brimming with inventiveness."
Heat magazine said, "A work of genius."
The Observer newspaper said, "Cult viewing."
The Daily Telegraph newspaper said, "Staggeringly bad taste, but fans wouldn't want it any other way."
