Showtimes Shameless follows the lives of the six Gallagher children and their comically-inept alcoholic father in South Side Chicago. The children, which range in age from toddler to high school dropout, find (and get) themselves into both devastating and comically outrageous situations that are rooted in common coming-of-age issues. The characters, each very different from each other, have the same self-sabotaging tendencies that make you consider the age-old debate of nature versus nurture. Throughout the series, the family has ups and downs, but one thing remains the same: no matter how ridiculous the situation they find themselves in, they always have each others backs.
