Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 10 episode 4: “Money Sandwiches with Gravy on Top”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 10 episode 4, Frank reminded us that sometimes you have to “look the part,” but it’s important to still recognize who you are at the end of the day.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “A Little Gallagher Goes a Long Way,” Frank helps Mikey embrace his dream for the day.  Meanwhile, Lip and Carl grow closer to their new friends, but how will Tami and Kelly react when they return?

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 10 episode 4 are:

5

“Look at you two.  Like two friends from that old show…Friends!”

“Only no black friends or Asian friends,” as V and Mimi kindly point out to Kev, but it looks like this is the start of a beautiful friendship for these two and possibly a business partnership? 

V and Mimi are getting along quite well and don’t seem to be too bothered when they throw insults back and forth, but Mimi is beyond thrilled when V comes up with an idea to help her with her business.

Mimi asks V to come and work for her as a side hustle of her very own, but it’s dangerous to mix business and friendship…

Either way, at least Kev has his own side hustle going on still!

“Oh shit, you’re serious.”

While dealing with the strike at work, Debbie suddenly realizes that she needs to find another way to make money…fast.  She runs into an old friend, Megan, at the supermarket and learns that Megan is doing just fine, even though she has a lot of kids.

Megan explains the importance of collecting child support and Debbie decides to knock on Derek’s door, but finds out from his wife that he is dead.

Debbie tries to collect the death benefit for Franny, but discovers that nothing was left for her.  All is not lost; however, as Megan introduces Debbie to her lawyer, Patti, who seems up for the challenge.

Debbie has experienced the good life with her She Shed and it doesn’t look like she is going to let up here until she gets her money.  Just don’t forget about Franny’s future college fund…

“I know who I am.”

Liam begins to have his doubts about Mavar, even though he has been very welcoming to Liam.  After talking it over with Kev, Liam starts to wonder if Mavar is in a cult.

It looks like Liam’s quest to find himself has ended; now finally realizing that he knows who he is and he’s happy with it.

I guess you’re a Gallagher after all, Liam!  Welcome back!

2

“This is a safe space.”

Lip decides to join the safe space for new moms and the female members are extremely enthusiastic to have him join.  Lip starts to bond with his new friend more and more, learning that baby Freddy should be self-sufficient.

I think perhaps his new friend has a point, but I’m not sure baby Freddy or Lip are ready for swim lessons just yet.

There definitely seems to be a vibe here, but Tami walks in at the end of the episode to break up the party, along with Kelly, so both Lip and Carl may need to figure out where their hearts truly lie…

I have to say that I think Carl and Anne are adorable though!

“We’re the wish granters!”

Mikey reveals his dream about becoming a businessman and Frank decides to make his dream come true, although he takes quite a few shortcuts to make this happen.  Frank explains the importance of dressing for success and it seems like they are in for quite the adventure, but Mikey realizes at the end of the episode that he needs to go to prison so that he can get quality healthcare.

It looks like this is the end of our favorite partnership for now.  I have to say that this may be one of the only times I have ever seen Frank truly connect with someone.  He shows glimmers here and there that he can be caring, but his friendship with Mikey seemed to spark his potential for goodness.

Although, I have a feeling that Frank will return to his old ways as soon as drama comes knocking on his door and it looks like it is going to in the next episode.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 10 episode 3: “Secret She Shed Down by the Sea Shore”

Happy Sunday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 10 episode 3, Frank reminded us, “Ask me no questions, I will tell you no lies,” but there’s always a question regarding Frank’s methods.  Please note spoilers are ahead.

In tonight’s episode, “Which America?” Liam meets Mavar, who seems willing to help him find his identity.  Meanwhile, Ian and Mickey learn the importance of having the talk, Debbie sparks a union a little bit too soon, and Carl grows closer to Anne.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 10 episode 3 are:

5

“No holla…never holla.”

After Liam continues to search for answers about his identity and heritage, he crosses paths with a used car salesman named Mavar, played by Anthony Alabi.  Mavar thinks that Liam definitely needs some guidance and decides to take him under his wing.

It looks like Liam may have finally found a good influence and perhaps Mavar is a new friend for V too!

“It was like taking candy from a baby.”

Business is booming for Carl and Anne, as everyone is lining up to order some extra tartar sauce.  Carl begins to have second thoughts about his long distance relationship with Kelly and decides to get closer to Anne, who invites him over for tamales.

Carl claims he makes the best tamales, but it’s clear that Anne’s family is not too impressed, but is this the start of a new romance for Carl?

I’m not sure how his boss is going to take it…

“I think we need to have a talk.”

After Ian finds out that he is up for a parole meeting, everyone asks if he has had “the talk” with Mickey.  Mickey got thrown in jail for Ian and it seems like he wants Ian to stay with him, but Mickey has a change of heart, realizing that sometimes you just have to “let her go,” or let him go in this case.

Mickey does the right thing and stops Ian from making a huge mistake and even gets him a phone to use so he can face time Lip and baby Freddy.

Now that’s love!

“Friendship with a really great lady.”

Kev continues his “side hustle” business, but only if you know the secret password:  Alibi Side Hustle.  It’s not really too subtle, but Kev seems to be making out quite well by selling some stolen goods on the side.

After Kev meets Mavar, he is motivated to immediately find a new best friend for V and decides to reach out to potential new friends on Tinder, which definitely sends some mixed signals.

After holding his own version of The Bachelor, Kev narrows down his choices, but V helps him break up the party, apologizing to the women.

Although it looks like Kev’s plan might have actually been a success, as number 42, Mimi, falls asleep at the bar and V realizes that they actually have a lot in common.  I’m not sure anyone can really fill Fiona’s shoes at this point, but I’m glad that V has found someone else to confide in.

“I haven’t used my real social since draft dodging in 69!”

Debbie screws up when she uses everyone’s real social security numbers to open up their ATM cards, which makes everyone extremely angry.  Mikey decides to show Frank Debbie’s secret she shed and he is impressed, but ends up taking everything to help pay Mikey’s vet bill…don’t get me started on that one.

When Debbie discovers that everything is gone, she is more than angry and decides to hunt down Frank with a Taser.  Look out, Frank!  Debbie’s coming for you!  Stay tuned!
