“Shameless” and tough decisions

Shameless DVD Season 1In the first season of the Showtime series “Shameless”, now available on DVD and Blu-ray, viewers see a lot of hardship but the show usually ends with a twist of humor and close family ties. At the end of Season 1, Steve tries to convince Fiona, his oldest daughter, to skip town with him to the warm and beautiful/care-free Costa Rica. This kind of lifestyle would surely be a great change for Fiona, but after initially deciding to go with Steve, she changes her mind and stays with the hard yet humorous, family-oriented life.

This is certainly a challenging dilemma and closely replicates some of the critical life-altering decisions we often have to make in early adulthood or other pivotal points in life. Being a creature of comfort and someone with a strong family foundation, I would probably make the same decision Fiona made and stay behind with family. Having said this, in earlier days of independence, the impulsive might have seemed more appealing.

What would you do?

Season 2 of the series started Sunday the 9th and you can tune in is on Sundays 9PM ET/PT on Showtime.

    This scene where he thanks the doctor for telling him how much of an alcoholic he is, it really is one of my favorite from the first season. Then later when the kids hold him down and pour liquor in his mouth while he’s unconscious, that’s just hilarious! This show is seriously one of my all time favorites, after only the first season, and the second season isn’t shaping up to be too bad neither. I love getting this show in HD without having to pay any extra, working for DISH I know that they’re still offering the HD Free For Life to new and existing customers.
