I have seen the first 4.5 seasons of the UK version. The first couple of episodes are almost exactly the same but other than that the US version seems to be taking most of the characters on at least slightly different paths, which is fine. It is hard to tell for sure what is in store, being that it is only the beginning of the US versions 2nd season, but so far they have varied from the UK version.
i missed the very beginning. are fiona and amy smart hooking up or something? why were they in bed together? all i caught was a comment about slobber or something.
Nah she showed up and started licking her ear to wake her up.
Haha I just realized that Stan from above the far is old Gus from Parks and Rec.
Wtf, no new episode next week? That blows. I imagine it's because of the Oscars, sucks.
Another good episode tonight though. Really surprised and yet not about Karen breaking it off so quickly. Dude was a tool though, laughed hard at him singing to her near the end of the episode.
lolololol at kissed by a rose during sex
whatever model is playing that brazilian woman is just insane
Kevin is very underrated. I know I forget him a lot because of the great cast but he managed to suck me into the crazy foster parent storyline that I never thought could ever work and also can add a good bit of humor. Loved him on coke.
Really good episode tonight. Ready to see emmy get railed again soon.
"My power, my pleasure, my pain"
I laughed really hard at that weirdo fuckin' to Seal. And Lip should be taken out back and shot. Finish school, you retard.
yeah i know they have no parental figure or really anyone remotely close to them that could give them good advice, but what's best for your kid is graduating, going to the university of chicago for fucking free, and getting a ballin job.
i forget that they are all so young (didnt the little girl say this was her last year of elementary school?) because of their maturity in taking care of themselves and shit. for as smart as lip is, he's only 17 in the show.
Seal had me rolling
He's become one of my favorite characters.
DON'T YOU HOP AWAY FROM US YOU DUMB FUCKIN' WHORE
episode wasn't great but starting to wonder when fiona is gonna stop avoiding steve. it's coming.
Yeah she will be fucking him in a week or 2 tops.
Love most all of the characters...show is great and Steve's "wife" is insanely hot. Also glad that the weird blonde friend's obsession with Fiona seems to be over.
I'm not. I wanted to see those two scissor.
lost a ton at this ep but hardest when frank and fiona are walking back home and discussing their plan
fiona asks "what if he she checks out fine"
frank quickly "psh come on"
Finished FNL and decided to start Shameless completely on a whim. I'm glad I did. /coolstorybro
Why the fuck isnt this new tonight?
Probably b/c of the Oscars tonight?
Yeah that is gay, HBO has all new shows tonight.
Then I agree with you.
good episode. lip is such a dumbass.
He really is fucking retarded. Pisses me off so much.
Such a great show
laughed so much then lip brought me down
As much of a dumbass as Lip is, this is not a show about happy endings, so it is in line with what he should be doing. I tolerated the Cusack character for the longest time, but she really is great in this, and Jody is growing on me also. Frank was awesome last night.
It seems like nearly every character is good and there's depth with seemingly every one of them. Impressive feat for a show that intertwines storyline over storyline with so many characters.
I can't think of a character on the show that I don't like. I know people on here have criticized Debbie, but I think that is misplaced. She is a great character and a great actress. I think people just don't want to identify with her as a nerdy female kid. The character that comes the closest to me hating is Jasmine, but she is more of a role player. You could probably throw Officer Tony into that category as well.
finally got caught up on the show after LKRFN88jp recommended it to me. Last night's episode was the best of this season so far IMO
what made it the best? I think they are all good, but I one hasn't stood out more than any other for me.
Debbie is one of the best characters/actors on the show. Period.
I didn't really like Tony but he has gotten zero screen time this season. Debbie is a good character but that doesn't stop her from annoying me with the whole "Jimbo" and "Jimmy Jim" shit. Also you would think Liam could find a cleaner dude to fuck than that scumbag Mickey. I know they live in a poor neighborhood but his scumminess is overboard. I also dislike Jasmine, that bitch just pisses me off.
lots of funny moments, unexpected character depth from guys like Jody, and a sucky ending that got a pretty strong emotional response from me.
Lip was my favorite character in season one but now I just want to punch him for being a dumbass.
Who is Jasmine? Is that Amy Smart's character?
Even more disgusting that Ian fucking him.
lol yeah no doubt
Anyone else having problems with Torrence? Jack Sparrow Bay isnt working for me?
Also regarding Jack Sparrow Bay - (very clever btw)
One of the Internet's largest torrent-downloading sites is no longer offering torrents, but that doesn't mean the site is being shuttered. Now users can access files with magnet links.
If you go to The Pirate Bay's Web site, you'll now see the words "The Magnet Bay." As of tomorrow, the popular Swedish torrent tracker will no longer be offering users torrent files, but instead will be posting magnet links.
On its blog today, the Pirate Bay wrote that even though this "marks the end of an era," users should not notice much of a difference.
"It shouldn't make much of a difference for the average user. At most it will take a few more seconds before a torrent shows the size and files," The Pirate Bay team told TorrentFreak in an interview today. "Just click the red button instead of the green one and all will be fine."
The Pirate Bay says the reason for the change is simple--the torrents are a waste of space and time. "It's simpler for us and no more hassle for you," the site wrote on its blog. "It's more resilient than .torrent files and it uses much less bandwidth for those who want to mirror."
Two weeks ago, The Pirate Bay warned that this would happen and explained exactly how the magnet links work. Rather than keeping all torrent files on a central server for users to download, the magnet links instead let users download from other BitTorrent users.
The Pirate Bay avoids walking the plank, for now
Swedish high court scuttles Pirate Bay appeal
Mystery and mayhem surrounding MegaUpload (roundup)
"A lot of media has hyped that we're stopping with the torrent files. It's like saying that Ferrari is no longer selling cars--they're just selling BETTER cars," The Pirate Bay wrote on its blog. "As are we, we're giving you the best links there are!"
However, it seems the recent crackdown on file-hosting sites like MegaUpload might be another motivator. The Pirate Bay team told TorrentFreak that magnet links use far fewer resources and also make the site less susceptible to being shut down.
"Countries, particularly in EU, seem to moving toward total censorship so we do all we can to avoid our users ending up with less freedom," The Pirate Bay wrote on its blog.

oh it's great. i'm not complaining i'm just saying lip is stupid as fuck.
jody became one of my favorite characters when he was singing during sex. fucking hilarious.
jody became WBN 's favorite character when he went full frontal.
the Brazilian: "he said he's coaching Football but they're not using their feet"
Thanks for the heads up.
Be real careful with demonoid. Hbo flagged me with Verizon for downloading eastbound and down last week, and I only seeded the file for a few hours.
Good to know. How do you know if you get flagged?
I would suggest downloading an IP blocking program like PeerBlock.
Yes, I have it, but long story short, I transferred the files to a machine by accident and I don't have peer block on that machine. I typically don't seed demonoid files. Comedy of errors.
