Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 11: “The Fickle Lady is Calling it Quits”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 11, we were reminded that “either you run the day or the day runs you.”

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

In season 11, episode 11, “The Fickle Lady is Calling it Quits,” Ian and Mickey adjust to life on the West Side while Kev and V prepare for their move. Meanwhile, Liam spends the day with Frank to cheer him up and Debbie searches for love.

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

5

“Are we really doing this?”

Kev and V have received an offer on their house and start to prepare for their move to Louisville. Kev is determined to learn as much as he can about Kentucky and even takes out books from the library to brush up on his knowledge. There is a bitter sweet nostalgia throughout the episode as Kev and V take a look at a photo from when they first started working together at the Alibi.

Even though that chapter of their lives is over, they are moving on to a new adventure and as long as they are together, I’m confident they will be happy.

I’m seriously going to miss these two!

“I need a life.”

Debbie continues to mope around about her family all moving out and worries about being truly alone. V tries to tell her that she needs to love herself before she can find love, but Tami reminds her that part of her issues come directly from Frank.

Debbie punches Frank in the face and he tells her that she will only find love if she meets someone who is even more of a loser than her so that they will never leave her.

As fate would have it, Debbie meets Heidi, who was recently released from prison and certainly seems to live life on the edge.

I’m not sure if this is the perfect match and I still wish that Sandy would come back, but I guess we have one episode to find out if that’s meant to be or not.

3

“I can’t play this game anymore.”

Carl is asked to apologize to the jerk in the Mercedes and follows along, but he can’t sit by when the man starts saying ignorant things. Carl actually delivers a moving speech and says he wants to stand up for those who don’t have a voice, which lands him to a demotion…as a meter maid.

Carl wants to really be more of a “meter master” and does the best he can with his new job, leading to some hilarious moments but he does bump into Trish who is now extremely pregnant. Is the baby Carl’s?

I guess we’ll have to wait and see if he is also going to be a new father. Either way, I think that the character growth of Carl is worth mentioning.

2

“F*ckin West Side.”

Mickey is not really adjusting to life on the West Side. He hates the bright moon and the lack of street noise at night and ends up spending the night at the Gallagher home just to get some rest. Ian seems to be adjusting to his new life a little easier, but Mickey had me dying laughing during several moments.

After finding out that the apartment will not have furniture, he decides to make a scene at the pool and starts taking the chairs to Ian’s horror.

Later on, Ian tells Mickey that he will stay wherever he wants to make him happy and it looks like Gallavich is going to give this new life a try.

Maybe they can take some furniture from the Gallagher home to make it truly feel like home again!

1

“Let’s have some fun.”

Liam reminds Frank that he is just having a bad morning and tells him that he wants to do “Frank things” for the day to have some fun, which was really sweet…in a Gallagher way.

Shameless season 11 episode 11 Frank and Liam

Images courtesy of Showtime

I think this is just what Frank needed, but at the end of the episode, Frank is shooting up and leaving a note for the Gallagher family.

So, is this it for Frank?

I really don’t want to see Frank go, but I’m also sort of wondering how else we can bring back other characters in the last episode and a funeral makes sense.

Frank told Liam that he lived his life the way he wanted to, but I’m not sure if the Gallagher family is truly ready to say goodbye and neither am I!

Only one episode left to find out how it all ends…

Stay tuned Gallagher fans!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 10: “DNR”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 10, we were reminded about the importance of family and that there’s nothing worse than being alone…

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

In season 11, episode 10, “DNR,” many of the Gallaghers try to find a new place to live, but some are having a tougher time than others. Meanwhile, Liam spends the day with Frank and Kev and V test out life in the south.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 10 are:

5

“You’re going down.”

Carl and Officer Tipping respond to a call where a protest is happening with several tenants who have been kicked out of their homes. Carl gets upset when he sees the owner in his shiny Mercedes double parking.

Carl decides to make a difference and arrests him, telling him that he’s everything that is wrong with the world today, but his other officers let the man go and explain that the rich people fund the police and that they can’t just arrest them.

Carl initially thinks he is fired, but later learns that it’s going to take a lot more than that for him to lose his job so it’s safe to say that Carl will be a cop for quite some time. 

4

“Happy to help.”

Kev and V initially seem out of place in Louisville while helping V’s mother with her move. However, V starts to realize that she feels right at home there after all and there may even be a new political job on a campaign waiting for her.

Meanwhile, Kev’s hunger leads him to the ultimate bartending gig where he gets to put his oreo drink skills to the test. Kev makes more in tips than he ever has at The Alibi and is told that there is a job waiting for him if he wants it.

It looks like Kev and V are going to move after all. As long as they are together, I’m happy with the outcome, but it looks like everything is coming to an end. Let’s hope they all still stay in touch with the Gallaghers though.

3

“Let’s go for a swim.”

Ian and Mickey find an apartment on the West Side, but Mickey is not sure he is ready for joggers on all sides and domestic beers that cost four bucks. However, the apartment is actually kind of perfect and Ian clearly wants to live there.

Shameless Gallavich season 11 episode 10

Ian reminds Mickey that maybe it’s time they “stop doing shady stuff and grow some tomatoes,” but we know that Gallavich will always be from the Southside no matter what.

It looks like it’s the start of a whole new journey for our favorite couple!

2

“All By Myself.”

The funniest moments of this episode featured Debbie going around with Franny looking for apartments. Debbie is clearly not ready to be without her family and the soundtrack behind her featuring the song, “All By Myself” was pure genius.

After checking out the first apartment, Debbie thinks she wants to move into a room with a big family, but when she learns that the room is all the way out back and she’d be alone, she starts to have some crazy what-if scenarios as well.

I’m curious to see where Debbie ends up and I’m still hopeful that she can work things out with Sandy in the end.

1

“Tough day.”

Liam spends the day with Frank and admits to him that he doesn’t really know how to do this. Liam is the only one who actually likes Frank and it’s certainly a lot for an eleven-year-old to deal with.

Shameless Liam season 11 episode 10

Images courtesy of Showtime

Frank later has “Do Not Resuscitate” tattooed onto his chest to make the decision a little easier, but I’m wondering what is actually going to happen to Frank at the end of the series and how it will truly impact the rest of the Gallagher family.

Meanwhile, Lip deals with some struggles of his own and tries to get the house ready for buyers leading to more unexpected bills and a fight with Mickey over a pair of pliers.

Later on, the painting issue is solved when Franny decides to decorate it with stickers and the Gallaghers leave it on a subway.

At least that crisis is solved, but we only have two episodes left to wrap things up.

Stay tuned Gallagher fans!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 9: “Survivors”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 9, we were reminded about the importance of having a true “home.” Not defined by the location or the walls, but by the people we love the most.

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

In season 11, episode 9, “Survivors,” Ian and Mickey attempt to honor Terry’s last wish as they track down a woman from his past. Meanwhile, Liam worries about where he will live, Frank plans out the perfect heist, and Kev is left in charge of the girls.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 9 are:

5

“So this is the job?”

After Carl’s crash last week, he is now moving to the eviction team. He basically is there to provide support/back-up and watch people get evicted and he even has one of his former training officers back…Tipping. Tipping seems excited to be back, but is using way too many metaphors to promote his new philosophy.

I have a feeling we may get to witness Carl work with every department on the force at this rate…

4

“It’s time for me to step up and be a father.”

“Now?” Frank decides to pull off the perfect heist he planned years ago at the Art Institute and attempts to put back together his old crew, but this proves to be more challenging than he realized when he learns that one is in a wheelchair, one is rich, and the other is dead.

Frank’s memory continues to waver in and out, but it looks like he somehow pulled off the job. Does this mean that he is actually going to buy the Gallagher house?

I’d love to see that extra footage…

3

“You left Jemma and Amy with Kevin?”

I mean, he is there father as V points out, but V is busy helping her mom move to Kentucky. V is less than impressed with the new change of scenery, but it might be nice for the girls.

Shameless season 11 episode 9 Kev

Speaking of the girls, Kev has his hands full when he is in charge of watching them at the bar. The girls don’t listen to him and end up getting into the edibles and then running off. Kev is certainly trying his best, but these girls are running circles around him…

Let’s hope they are OK.

2

“We should at least try and find the bitch.”

Mickey is dealing with some mixed emotions after his father’s death. He finds a box marked “Rachel” with some old photos and an address. Ian and Mickey decide to track down Rachel and learn that she was Terry’s first love.

Shameless season 11 episode 9 Gallavich

Images courtesy of Showtime

The more they talk to Rachel, the more they begin to realize where Terry’s hate came from, as we learn that Rachel is Jewish and Terry was not allowed to marry her and she is now married to a black man.

Later on, Mickey decides to honor Terry’s wish to have him cremated, but they forgot to claim the body at the morgue and he’s off to a shared grave. Luckily, Ian and Mickey decide to light his remains up on fire anyway while giving us a delightful rendition of “I Will Survive.”

Seriously, these Gallavich moments have been absolutely amazing this season. They should do a spin-off! It looks like Mickey can move on, but it was nice to see a softer side of him.

1

“Are we selling or not?”

During the episode, Debbie continues to clash with Lip over selling the house and Liam is extremely worried that he is going to end up homeless. At the end of the episode, we witness two heartwarming moments.

Debbie reveals to Lip that she doesn’t want Franny to be alone and worries about her growing up without her family around. Lip promises that they will still have weekly dinners together, which was a nice gesture. I’d love to see that continue because the Gallagher family has to stay together in some capacity.

Meanwhile, Lip finally goes to talk to Liam about everything and tells him that he can live with him and Tami, which was a really touching moment. Liam always gets forgotten so this was really nice to see.

Although now that Frank stole that painting, I’m wondering what’s truly in store for the infamous Gallagher home…

Stay tuned Gallagher fans!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 8: “Cancelled”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 8, we were reminded about the importance of memories. Sometimes we may take them for granted, but when it comes down to it, they’re all we have left when it matters the most.

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

In season 11, episode 8, “Cancelled,” Ian and Mickey try to hire someone to watch over Mickey’s dad, but they run into a few problems along the way. Meanwhile, Lip and Tami bond over breaking the law, Debbie attempts to blow off some steam, and Kev and V cause us to shed a few tears of joy.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 8 are:

5

“The Carl curse.”

Carl seems initially confused about what this actually is, but when he is informed that all of his training officers end up injured while with him, it starts to make a lot more sense. Carl is assigned to vice and at first, it seems pretty glamorous.

His two new training officers drive around fancy cars and spend the majority of their time trying to make a profit, but things get tricky when they say they are about to raid the Alibi Room. Luckily, Carl always has a plan and this curse is really more of a blessing!

4

“The day is young.”

Debbie decides to let off some steam and crashes with her bartender friend. Debbie sifts through her ex-girlfriend’s clothing pile and dresses up so that she can feel good about herself, even though she is heartbroken over her family and Sandy.

Debbie takes things a little too far and ends up waking up on a street corner looking like a hooker. No one has picked up Franny and Debbie runs into Sandy on the way back.

Sandy really wants to talk things out, but Debbie remains stubborn and tells her goodbye, which left poor Sandy in tears when she walked away.

Even though Sandy has been less than forthcoming about her baggage and past, Debbie has a lot issues too and I think that these two can actually help each other in the long run, but let’s hope they can resolve their issues.

3

“Family’s family.”

Ian and Mickey try to figure out what to do with Mickey’s dad, but start striking out when it comes to hiring some help. After Terry manages to scare away his new nurse within less than five minutes, Ian and Mickey really do their homework and bring in a nun who is not afraid to smack Terry in the back of the head when he gets out of line.

However, things take a drastic turn when they come home and learn that the nun had to “punish” Terry by suffocating him to death. I guess it’s the thought that counts?

2

“Carpet Denim.”

Sure, Kev may not get the phrases right, but he loves V through and through. Kev and V have been the most consistent couple over the entire series and we finally get to witness them get married officially when Kev learns that a zoom appointment at City Hall has opened up.

Kev and V Shameless season 11

Images courtesy of Showtime

V’s mom and their daughters are present while they celebrate the day and luckily Carl created that distraction outside which would have turned this beautiful day into a nightmare.

I was really glad to see this heartwarming moment between Kev and V especially after witnessing the Gallavich wedding last season. Perfection!

1

“I’m sure I mentioned it.”

After Frank loses his memory during his speech at Liam’s school, he is taken to the hospital. The Gallagher family finally learns the truth about his condition, which is an important revelation for the end of the series.

The Gallagher family has been through a lot and Frank has not really been present for a lot of important moments because of his drinking. However, I thought that his speech about memories was really important and maybe now he can try to make amends and make the most out of his time with his family because all he has left are fading memories.

This leaves each member of the Gallagher family with an important decision as well. Do they close the book on Frank or do they try and help him in his time of need?

We only have four episodes left and I’m curious to see who will be coming back for the series finale. There have been rumors about Fiona returning along with Karen and Sheila, but what about Jimmy?

Stay tuned Gallagher fans!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 7: “Two at a Biker Bar, One in the Lake”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 7, I learned that sometimes people make different choices and that’s OK.

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

In season 11, episode 7, “Two at a Biker Bar, One in the Lake,” the Gallagher family continues to argue over whether or not to sell their home. Meanwhile, Ian and Mickey decide to make new friends, another secret about Sandy is revealed, and Carl has a meltdown during a safety presentation for kids.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 7 are:

5

“I’m not living with your family.”

The vote is still undecided, but Tami is ready to move back in with her family until they can get back on their feet. Lip refuses to live with her family; however, and would rather “slit his throat.”

Shameless season 11 episode 7

Lip continues to try and convince the rest of the family to sell the house so he can make enough cash, but eventually makes a compromise and applies for a job at an Amazon facility to appease Tami, but it may be too late for that now…

4

“Please don’t let me die.”

Meanwhile, Kev gets into a little bit of trouble when a cop pulls him over riding one of Lip’s stolen bikes. Only she seems more interested in buying the bike and knows exactly where to find Kev thanks to his T-shirt.

Kev decides to move the bikes, but things get tricky, causing him to actually ride one into Lake Michigan.

There goes twenty grand…

3

“I guess you’re a better person than I am.”

After the reveal about Sandy’s husband, we now discover that she also has a son named Prince. Prince is actually pretty adorable, but Sandy says that she doesn’t want to be his mom.

Shameless season 11 episode 7 recap 1

Images courtesy of Showtime

This strikes a nerve with Debbie, who has given up everything for her own daughter. She tries to tell Sandy that she can’t just abandon her child, but Sandy tries to explain that she was just trying to figure out who she was and brings up some of Debbie’s emotional baggage in the process.

2

“If I need friends, you need friends.”

Gallavich continues to bring us some hilarious moments as they come to an agreement that they need to make some new gay friends. After striking out a few times, they meet a gay couple and are invited to a book signing.

Mickey works on his dazzling smile and the two eventually decide that this may not be the best place for them, although they put on a showstopping number of “Rain On Me.”

More please!

1

“Let’s just vote and be done with it.”

Easier said than done, as the vote ends up being tied. The arguing continues, but Lip decides to walk in with a sledge hammer and start forcing his “open floor plan” on everyone. Frank eventually stumbles into the chaos and has been dealing with his own issues throughout the episode, but he seems temporarily relieved to see his family.

At the very of the episode, the cops are looking for Lip and Debbie confirms that he is inside, which means that things are about to go from bad to worse for Lip.

Let’s see how this all turns out…

Stay tuned, Gallagher fans!

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.

Shameless season 11 episode 6 Lip

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.

Shameless Debbie and Sandy season 11 episode 6

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!

1

“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.

Shameless Gallavich season 11 episode 6

Images courtesy of Showtime

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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 5: “Slaughter”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 5, I learned that moving is never easy…especially when you may have a haunted house to deal with…

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

In season 11, episode 5, “Slaughter,” Lip and Tami are forced to look for a new house without any notice. Meanwhile, V goes door-to-door, Frank attempts to eliminate their neighbor problem for good, and Ian and Mickey face some issues during their new job.

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

5

“How to be a good neighbor…”

Frank has had enough and wants to get rid of the Milkovich family for good. V tries to give him some advice and suggests that they talk to each other reasonably. Only things don’t go extremely well when one of them literally gets branded in front of them while the other begins cooking up a dead deer on their lawn. Kev points out that it is basically like living next to the Manson family, but Frank is determined to break in and take the owner off of life support so that the Milkovich family will have no choice but to vacate the premises.

Only that old lady is a fighter and grabs Frank by the balls when he tries to turn off her life support. Looks like the problem will continue for now.

4

“You know this guy?”

Ian and Mickey seem to be getting along a little bit better now that they are working together, but when they get held up by Mickey’s cousin, they are forced to think outside the box. This leads to them borrowing an ambulance and stumbling upon a dead body in the back…romantic!

Shameless season 11 episode 5 Gallavich

Either way, I love seeing adventures with Ian and Mickey!

3

“I don’t even know where she lives…”

After discovering that Sandy has a car, Debbie starts to realize that she doesn’t really know that much about her new girlfriend…like at all.

She decides to use Franny’s tracker and is overly concerned when she discovers that Sandy is spending most of the day at a strip club.

Later on, Sandy explains that she bartends there and doesn’t really have a place to live. Debbie seems ready to open up to her as well, but we are thrown for another loop when Sandy’s angry husband shows up outside…she’ll explain later.

As Franny said, “you have been served!”

2

“They called it the Slaughter house before the murders.”

Lip and Tami quickly learn that their house is up for sale. They need to find a new place to live and actually find a cheap place to look at, but there is something going on with this house.

Shameless season 11 episode 5 Lip and Tami

Later on, Kev hilariously explains that there were murders that took place there and that the family was named “Slaughter.” People still hear a baby crying, but it doesn’t look like it is going to scare off Lip and Tami.

Only Lip gets fired from his job and may be going down a dark path now. Let’s hope he doesn’t spiral completely out of control…

1

“Not today, rednecks!”

Liam has been tortured by the Milkovich family and their racist dog and he has finally had enough. Carl shows him how to use a gun and he decides to shoot it into the air.

Shameless season 11 episode 5 Liam

Only the bullet actually comes back down and lands on Mr. Milkovich’s head. Is he dead? Is he alive?

I don’t know but things are about to get crazy…

Stay tuned, Gallagher fans!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 4: “NIMBY”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 4, I learned that having a difficult neighbor could turn your life into a living hell, but living next to the Milkovich family is like “living next door to a nuclear waste dump.”

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

In season 11, episode 4, “NIMBY,” Frank, Liam, and Kev team up to try and get the Milkovich family to move out of the neighborhood. Meanwhile, Debbie and V face off during the Little Miss Southside contest and Lip meets Tami’s old teacher.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 4 are:

“Are we brunch people now?”

Lip begrudgingly agrees to meet Tami’s old teacher during brunch, but things start to get weird when he realizes that there are some old feelings lingering in the air. Tami tries to tell Lip he is way off, but later admits to dating her teacher when she was younger.

When her teacher returns with his new fiancee who is still in high school, Tami starts to see things as they really are. Good thing she has Lip right there by her side. I’m still not completely convinced by Lip and Tami’s relationship and I’m hoping that something sparks soon especially since it is the last season.

“I’m the boss.”

After Ian quits his job, Mickey agrees to hire him, but Ian doesn’t want to do anything illegal. This leads to some hilarious moments involving Gallavich decked out in military uniforms while performing their security run. The gig doesn’t really seem to pay that much, but it looks like they may have just stumbled upon a gold mine…

3

“We gotta figure out how to stop them.”

Frank is determined to get his new neighbors to move out and enlists the help of both Liam and Kev, making quite the team.

After several failed attempts, Liam breaks in to try and get the old lady residing there to give them some incriminating evidence, but all they get is way too much information about her sex life with Mr. Milkovich. So much for that.

2

“A little friendly competition never hurt anyone…”

It’s clear that Deb and V are way more invested in the results of the little Miss Southside contest than their daughters, but they both take things a little bit too far. Debbie is outraged when V calls a time limit on Franny, which causes her to convince Franny to give Gemma a makeover with a permanent marker to get back at her.

V actually gives quite the inspiring speech, but neither daughter ends up winning. At least their friendship is not ruined and it looks like V may have a new job opportunity now.

“Thank you Officer Gallagher.”

Carl is beyond excited to return for his next day of work and is “erect for police work,” but starts to have second thoughts when he ends up having to arrest people he knows from the neighborhood. His partner tries to give him a reality check, but she does take things too far on more than one occasion.

After making one suspect take off her wig and dress, Carl decides to do the right thing and return them to her. He even gives her a new carton of cigarettes and tells her where she can set up shop without getting into trouble. The act is genuine and really shows the character growth of Carl over the years.

Thank you Officer Gallagher!

Stay tuned Gallagher fans!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 3: “Frances Francis Franny Frank”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 3, I learned that sometimes “playing the long game” can truly make a difference.

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

In season 11, episode 3, “Frances Francis Franny Frank,” Frank attempts to take Franny to school, which ends up being more difficult than he anticipated. Meanwhile, Carl gets a new partner, Tami gets some heartbreaking news, and Kev shows off with pride.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 3 are:

5

“It’s like a piggy bank but it’s a keg.”

Makes sense to me Kev. It’s a “keggy bank.” Kev is splurging a little bit since they are raking in the dough with their new weed business, but V is skeptical about some of his knockoff purchases.

It’s clear that Kev is excited, but perhaps he shouldn’t go around flaunting his money to everyone, especially when he ends up getting robbed.

Luckily it looks like a new business partner will be joining in the mix to act as security. Welcome to the team, Mickey!

4

“Can I get a picture for Instagram?”

Debbie’s business is really taking off ever since her wrongfully convicted lesbian welder profile launched and she even has time to pose for pictures.

However, things take a turn for the worse when she needs to quickly find a way to deliver snacks to Franny’s school. Perhaps it wasn’t the best idea to “borrow” your client’s food and sneak out the window…

I’m curious to see that Yelp review!

3

“Try not to kill this one.”

Carl’s former partner has a 60/40 chance of recovery after his heart attack, but he now has a new female partner to work with. It looks like this new partner is the complete opposite and is ready to shake things up at work.

Carl actually gets to make his very first arrest and it looks like he even learned a thing or two. I think this is the start of a beautiful partnership guys!

2

“I’m not anybody’s bitch.”

Ian and Mickey continue to go through the power struggle known as “marriage,” which ends up escalating into a fight at the Alibi.

Luckily V is there to break it up and manages to put these two in their places, reminding them what a true partnership is all about.

Seriously don’t mess with V! It looks like Gallavich is going strong again with these wise words!

1

“Today is take your grand-kids to work day.”

Sure, maybe Frank made that up, but he ends up having quite the entertaining adventure with Franny after he fails to find her school. Deb is freaking out about where Franny is, but gets a harsh wake-up call from Lip about her parenting skills.

I have to admit that the best part of the episode was this team-up between Frank and Franny, which was beyond adorable. Her negotiation skills are top notch and Frank even convinced her about the importance of “playing the long game” to make her mother happy, finally putting on the dress to take her picture for “Miss South Side.”

Frank’s sporting some new ink to honor his granddaughter and we even get a trip down memory lane and a mention of…Fiona!

Overall, I thought this was another strong episode. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

 

Stay tuned Gallagher fans!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 2: “Go Home, Gentrifier!”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 2, I learned that going into business with Frank Gallagher can be risky, but he does know what he is doing…

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

In season 11, episode 2, “Go Home, Gentrifier,” Kev and V decide to team up with Frank to make some more sales from their new weed business. Meanwhile, Deb wants to throw a princess birthday party for Franny and Carl starts his first day on the force.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 2 are:

5

“First day on the job.”

Carl is more than excited to start his first day on the job, but his new partner doesn’t really want to rush into danger. His idea of the perfect day involves jamming out to “Shake That Ass,” enjoying a nice meal with his mom and getting in a quick nap at Best Buy while responding to fake calls.

Carl wants to actually experience some action, but changes his tune slightly when his new partner agrees to buy him one drink. Only his new partner starts chugging beer and ends up having a heart attack while having sex with a police groupie.

It looks like Carl may be getting a new partner after all…

“A Gallagher lives here!”

Lip is upset when he returns home and finds out that his windows have been broken and trash is dumped on his yard. Lip has really been trying to make an effort on his new home and asks his neighbor to keep an eye out.

Later in the episode, Lip and Tami discover that his neighbor and her friends were the ones messing up their house because they don’t want the property taxes to go up. The front garden was looking really nice, Lip!

3

“Shut the f*ck up Jerome!”

Mickey still doesn’t seem overly motivated to get a job, but Ian tells him that there will be no more sex until he does. After watching TV all morning, Mickey sees a hilarious ad from Jerome asking him what he is doing with his life. Mickey seems somewhat inspired, but tells Jerome to shut up.

After failing his “role playing” interview at the warehouse, Mickey decides to put his entrepreneur skills to the test to make some money on the expired food that is being tossed out, but Ian still tells him he needs a new job.

I’m confident that there is the perfect job out there for Mickey, but it may be a little while until he finds his true calling. Gotta love his enthusiasm though!

2

“What could be more fun than that?”

It’s Franny’s fifth birthday and she is initially very excited, but it looks like Debbie is the one who truly wants to throw a princess party. After finding the perfect decorations at the dollar store, Debbie is extremely disappointed when the bouncy house arrives with a Count Dracula theme.

Franny actually seems to love it, but Debbie wants a princess one, revealing that perhaps this party is really more for her…

Later on, the princess sing-along gets a little stale, but luckily Uncle Mickey shows up with a gun to win over Franny.

1

“I would feel the same way if I was going into business with me…”

V is out of weed and is worried about how they will continue making their new edibles, but Kev suggests that they go into business with the “illegal drug connoisseur,” Frank Gallagher.

Frank tells them they can go for a trial run, but his product is actually pretty impressive and brings in a lot of money. After the trial run is over, Frank reminds them that he did most of the work and changes the cut.

V thinks that they should try and get the product themselves, but Frank is one step ahead of them and now changes the split to 70/30. 

Going into business with Frank can have its rewards, but Frank is ready to defend his skills if necessary. Watch out, V!

Stay tuned Gallagher fans!
