Fresh, irreverent and... "Massive!"
on July 2, 2008
Imagine Charles Dickens in Manchester, UK, alive and well and madly drunk, writing a brilliantly insightful and hilarious riposte to Coronation Street. Shameless is such a thing. It is a comedy full of lovably amoral villains and ne'er-do-wells in the finest Dickensian tradition. Shameless, is a poke in the eye to anyone who thinks that being penniless and living on the wrong side of the tracks is quaint. It's characters are as strange as visitors from another planet and resourceful in a way that would have won a wink of admiration from the Artful Dodger. Shameless is at once stranger than Coronation Street and strangely more real, more honest and far and away more hilarious. It's a gem. "Massive!"
