I just got to the end of Season 3 on Showtime VoD. I really have enjoyed Shameless. The biggest note is that "Karen" deserves an acting Emmy for taking her from unapologetic evil to a brain damaged emotional cripple. I swore that kid checking the recruits on the bus looked like a clone of John Cusack. I'll bet he was Joan's son. There was no other Cusack in the credits. In usual show runner season MO, they killed off a character in a shocker in the next to last episode, although I think they're keeping the option open to have "Jimmy" show up on the porch again about episode 3 or 4 of season 4. He'll show up just as Fiona is hanging with the boss. My predictions: Lip does go to MIT. Ian is of course, in the Army. Watch Mickey show up at camp. Frank does, semi - usually - sober up. We've seen Frank lower the narcissism a touch for the first time. Kev and V bring home the baby. Complications with Mom ensue. Maybe she doesn't want to give up the kid. Can't wait for season 4!
