Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 6: “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good…Eh, Screw It”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 6, I learned that “giving up is for pussies,” but sometimes life can throw a curve ball and you may end up seeing things differently.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not watched the latest episode yet.

In season 11, episode 6, “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good…Eh, Screw It,” Frank gets a troubling diagnosis. Meanwhile, Liam tries to deal with his guilt, Lip and Tami consider selling the Gallagher home, and Debbie tries to get some answers.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 6 are:

5

“Less talking, more stealing.”

In this episode, we quickly learn that Lip only fell off the wagon for one night, but the plot to rob his former place of employment is still on. Luckily he has Mickey to help him out, but it seems like they really haven’t thought this through. Lip and Tami don’t have a place to live anymore which creates more issues for them.

Let’s just hope that Lip doesn’t get caught…

4

“Whoever did it deserves a medal.”

Mr. Milkovich is surprisingly alive, but he is now paralyzed after being shot by Liam’s fired bullet into the air. Liam is really starting to feel guilty and starts wondering about penance and Hell. Frank gives him a few pep talks, but Liam has always been the good one of the bunch and he clearly has a lot to deal with now.

3

“This is messed up.”

It’s “Bring Your Mom to School” day and V is excited to accompany her girls for the day. Only she quickly changes her tune when she learns that they are about to have a drill in case there is ever an active shooter.

Jemma and Amy are actually really prepared and V should at least be happy that her daughters can react in a hostile scenario, but the teacher doesn’t seem too convinced by V’s concerns…

2

“I love you.”

After spending the majority of the episode complaining about Sandy and sending her a million texts, Deb finally has a heart-to-heart talk with her and learns the truth about Royal and her situation.

Debbie tells Sandy that she loves her and it looks like she may have actually found a real relationship this time around.

Don’t mess it up, Deb!

“That was big of you.”

Even though there are a lot of comedic moments in this episode, there are actually a lot of emotionally moving ones as well. Frank has a heart-to-heart talk with Mr. Milkovich and we also discover that Frank is in early stages of Alcohol Dementia.

Lip and Tami consider selling the Gallagher home so they can all lead separate lives, but thankfully the rest of the family shuts down this plan. Even though the show is ending, let’s have it end on the right note.

Finally, Mickey has this incredible moment where he actually puts his rage aside and helps his dad get up to the porch. Ian is really proud of him and reminds him that he is a good person. I thought this moment was really important for the character development of Mickey and it also helped really solidify how epic and amazing Gallavich is.

It will be interesting to see what happens now with Frank, but I’m hoping that things end on a positive note…at least as much as they can.

Stay tuned, Gallagher fans!

It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.

Spoiler-Free Review of “Are You Afraid of the Dark?: Curse of the Shadows” on Nickelodeon: Season Two of the Revival Is Off to a Spooky Start

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“Once you’ve been cursed, the Shadowman will come for you…”

Are You Afraid of the Dark?: Curse of the Shadows premiered on Nickelodeon on February 12th 2021. There will be six episodes in total that will air weekly. The series stars Bryce Gheisar, Malia Baker, Beatrice Kitsos, and Dominic Mariche. Each episode runs for approximately 50 minutes. 

Based on the original Are You Afraid of the Dark? series that aired in the 1990’s, this revival is now on its second season. Only we get a new cast, a new location, and an entirely new mystery. The Midnight Society is ready for the case when their leader goes missing, but they may have inherited a dangerous curse in the process.

Here is the trailer:

Are You Afraid of the Dark?: Curse of the Shadows lures us in right away with an intriguing mystery and a scary villain that may actually give you some nightmares. It seems like season two has effectively found its own voice while bringing us some welcomed nostalgia along the way. Does season two do enough to keep us coming back for more? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Jumps right into the mystery.

While I enjoyed season one of the revival, there was a lot of set-up and fluff centered around the new stranger joining the Midnight Society and what that actually was. Thankfully, we skip all of that in season two and get off to a quick and chilling start.

While I’m still warming up to the new Midnight Society, I think that this was a wise decision and this anthology approach could actually allow this show to branch out even further in the future.

Welcomed nostalgia.

If you are a fan of the original series, then you will be pleased with season two’s efforts to pay the show some real tribute. The character of Sardo is back in the revival. While he is played by a different actor, this character is the owner of the Magic Mansion and his presence is livening up the show for sure.

The Cons:

Watered down scares.

I wouldn’t say that this is necessarily a con, but this is a kids horror show and some of the scares and effects are a little cheesy. That being said, I think that the kids horror genre doesn’t get enough credit sometimes. The Shadowman is genuinely scary and there were quite a few moments that had me on the edge of my seat.

If you are looking for something truly scary, you won’t get that here, but as long as you manage your expectations, you will be pleasantly surprised.

So am I in or out?

I’m in!

This show is a lot of fun and it presented us with a spooky mystery right away without too much set-up. I’m intrigued to find out more and I may be looking over my shoulder if the Shadowman appears…
