Once again another great season of my favorite show “Shameless” is over. This season seemed to just fly by way too quickly. Thing is– that I never once bought into that Fiona likes the heroin, loser dude who runs a diner – killed a man- did time, NA guy played by Dermot Mulroney ( Sean Pierce) , 25 years her senior.
So we decided to watch season one again. Jeremy Allen White ( Steve) who was Fiona’s first car thieving boyfriend had some pretty genuine sexy chemistry and was truly lovable. We so wish they would bring him back along with all his charm and Starbucks and Donuts.
But here is the interesting thing happening. They are showing that NA doesn’t work . Season 6 ends with an interesting twist where Frank Fiona’s DAD sees that Dermot Mulroney is still using heroin. ( Spoiler alert ) And so in a nutshell ends the Wedding between the two.
I do have a problem with LIP going to rehab. First of all he doesn’t have a drinking problem. His Professor does. Next, he’s in college and was partying, but its like they wanna force him ( I mean the writers wanna force Lip– down this path for a reason.
What is that reason?
Just because someone has a rough patch, does not mean they need rehab. But Americans are all brainwashed to believe this.
SO here is my theory. Lip , the smartest of the Gallagher clan will not take well to AA brainwashing, rhetoric and or it’s stupidity. Maybe this is what we all have been waiting for. An A list TV show that shows the crap that is spewed in 12 step, its big book and the meetings.
UNLIKE CBS’s show MOM, Shameless, shamelessly tries to keep it real and tell it like it is. What a cast, what writing and directing… I love this show and can hardly wait to see where they will go with the AA rehab with Lip. I hope the writers are reading our blogs and FACEBOOK pages. 🙂 There are a ton of them now!
