WOW what a great season finale last night. I feel like Fiona here….yelling in this poster when it comes to NA Court ordered coercion. And that new boss who is a stepper too….holy sh*t. job … her PO helps her hook up with…is Regina in “program too” I bet your ass she is…. I also adore REGINA KING who plays her PO, but What the heck ….. I suspect that the creators of Shameless are not stepper lovers… but why promote NA this way. Maybe they don’t see it as promotion, but if NA and AA are the only thing ever mentioned then people just think they are like “sliced bread” ….maybe they plan to go another “shameless” route.
Also Lip uses the term ” drinking the Big Book Koolaid” so Im thinking maybe they are reading our mail? Not sure… But one would hope that at some point someone some- where in TV land will mention another non 12 step, non religious alternative like Smart Recovery, SOS or Moderation all which are approved by the Courts in LA and I know that SOS and Smart are approved by the National Drug Court . Doesn’t anyone know this in TV and FILM land?
I have a suspicion what curvy road they might take , but I won’t post it. It’s just my suspicion.
Why can’t one of these great shows have a character sent to Smart Recovery or MM or SOS, just to break the BS cycle in our media. “Shameless” is for sure one of the best shows on TV today! Stellar Cast, fantastic writing, great directing and wow the DP and camera work on this last episode was gorgeous! I love this show!!!
William Macy is fanatstic. SO is lip and Fiona and so is Kevin and debbie….what a stellar cast. oh yea great writing and great everything!
