As we catch up with the Gallagher clan, Fiona is dividing her time between caring for the household and working at Worldwide Cup with her boss/boyfriend Mike Pratt. While her job and relationship are going smoothly, life at home is thrown into a state of upheaval with the reappearance of a drug-addled and deathly ill Frank. With Lip off at college and Ian still missing, Fiona attempts to connect with Debbie and Carl, who are dealing with the upheaval of their adolescent hormones (or lack thereof). Season premiere.

What Makes This Show Great
29 September 2019 | by realheroeagleeyeSee all my reviews

You learn every character's motivations, mindset, and relatability in each scene, either directly or through the use of music and cinematography, with many especially creative, purposeful scenes to emphasize all the character building. Each character starts being built upon a very deliberate character arc, with very deliberate character flaws, which leads to them being well-developed characters. Everyone becomes distinctly deplorable AND innocent, and it's that dichotomy that makes this show so damn great.
