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!

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.

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!

“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 1: “This Is Chicago”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 1 season premiere, it’s’ time for last call for the Gallagher gang! While it’s bitter sweet for one of my favorite shows to come to an end, I have to say that what they have already done with the season premiere is pure genius. It’s not easy integrating the pandemic into a show, but somehow the Gallaghers did it perfectly, allowing us to kick back and get some much needed entertainment!

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

In season 11, episode 1, “This Is Chicago,” Frank has somehow managed to get someone to film a documentary about his life and the history of the Gallagher family. Meanwhile, the rest of the family adjust to life during the pandemic.

My top 5 moments from the Shameless season 11 premiere are:

5

“You’re a natural born ass kicker.”

Who would have thought that little Carl would have grown up to be a police officer? I can’t say that I predicted that, but Carl has come a long way and his hard work is about to pay off. Sure, he may have flunked the written, but he is a “natural born ass kicker” and he’s ready to prove his worth.

Get em Carl!

“We’re a family business now.”

The pandemic has made it tough for Kev and V to keep the Alibi going (although they have their exit strategy planned to perfection), but they have a new business to pay their bills. Now that weed has been legalized in Chicago, the whole family is ready to contribute….even the girls!

3

“We’re supposed to be making these decisions together.”

After that beautiful Gallavich wedding, Ian and Mickey are quickly learning that being married isn’t easy. “I owe yous” aren’t going to cut it and they need to set some rules and remember to tell each other everything.

It looks like both Ian and Mickey are willing to try; however, reminding us that our favorite ship is still holding strong. Seriously, I love these two!

2

“Debbie Does Everything!”

Everything? Well, it could have multiple meanings as Liam hilariously points out, but Debbie is ready to get her new business up and running…only she runs into a few problems when her statutory rape charge from Julia gets in the way.

Due to a clerical error, it states that Julia was 7 instead of 17, which means that pretty much no one will hire her.

Debbie and Sandy are still going strong; however, and Sandy comes up with the genius idea to create an Insta account for Debbie, “Hot Lesbian Convict,” claiming she was wrongfully accused and treated poorly because she is a lesbian.

Debbie’s hot new account is certainly getting a lot of notice and it looks like her business may be safe for now. I have to admit that Debbie may have had the best mug shot I’ve ever seen…

1

“Family looking after family.”

Lip feels like he may have made a mistake with Tami, now recognizing that he is basically her bitch since he rented the house without initially telling her. At the end of the episode, the whole gang shows up at his house and it really did feel like home, however.

I think that season 11 is off to a great start and I can’t wait to see what the Gallagher family does next!

Stay tuned Gallagher fans!
