What stands out in season five is the comic genius of actor Steve Howey. Howey plays Kevin Ball, the thirtysomething owner of Frank's favorite watering hole, the Alibi Room. He unpretentiously steals the show episode after episode. The laugh-out-loud scenes are his, like when he tries to pick up a fellow parent at the kiddie park and ends up getting a face full of pepper spray. SHAMELESS's litany of moral turpitude continues as Frank rats out his own grandson as a drug mule.

The acting was superb!
While the story lines and the characters were interesting and intriguing, I felt very uncomfortable with the whole series! I think the Director was aiming for the surprise and the shock value!There seemed to be no moral compass! Everyone seemed to be having sex with anyone! The criminal activity, some violence, drugs, nudity, the sex scenes, I can see the appeal to some people! It is definitely Not a Family show! One gets to really know the characters and start rooting for them! Yet, the series left me discomforted!
I haven't seen the previous series, and am not going to!

this is by far the worst of the five seasons. every season has more and more sex scenes. this is a sign of a weak writing staff. if there is to be a 6th season, new writers need to hired or don't even bother shooting it.
