I love me some Shameless, but the one thing I dislike about the series is how damn long it takes to come back on the air. So is the plight of a fan of premium channel programming, I suppose. Just ask any Game of Thrones fan.They're more than willing to commiserate. But, there is good news for those of you who are impatient buggars like me and can't bare to wait another Sunday without some Gallagher debauchery on your screen. The season 5 premiere of Shameless airs on January 11th, and based on the last four incredible seasons, this one looks to be just as good, if not better.
Now, your memory might be a little hazy on just how great Shameless is since we've stepped away from it for so long, but it only takes a few subtle yet poignant reminders that this show is special in so many offensive and envelope pushing ways. Yes, the dysfunction is obviously plentiful, but the grittiness of the Gallagher family and the other characters in their inner circle bring a uniquely real element that other shows can't match. So, to get your Shameless gears grinding, here are some unparalleled badass GIFs from the show. I dare you not to feel invigorated for a new season after this.
Here are some reasons why you should be pumped for season 5:
Their Giving Spirits
The Bedtime Stories
Unique Hang Out Spots
The Focus on Proper Manners and Etiquette
The Rampant Illegal Activity
The Staying Life Lessons
The Terms of Endearment
Their Virtuous Honesty
The Descriptive Language
The Relatable Concerns
Their Take on Current Social Issues
Their Willingness to Communicate
