This is turning into fantasy/sci-fi/awful comedy

This is borderline ridiculous. From dark and deep themes in what was masterpiece of season 4 we now get man negotiating sex partners in prison, teenage girl with diaper, 50 years old man somehow having sex with 20 different engaged women and only one guy is angry. Dont forget that we get different music and 10 seconds song for every scene. It is truly sad what this show has come to. It is insult to our intelligence what these writers are doing. SHAME on them.

Thought last season was bad....

Was hoping they would redeem themselves from a rather bland season 8. The writers are going for shock rather by insulting our intelligence (playing fetch with your children in the hood.... REALLY?!). Frank's list of sexual endeavors is laughable at best. And the Ian story as gay Jesus, now in prison, has run its course and is borderline ridiculous. We are huge fans of this show, but last season (and apparently this one) shows its coming to an end. Especially with Emmy Rossum departing after this one.

Better than Expected!

Although the ending of Season 8 was Okayish, the beginning of Season 9 was great.

Loved the Frank's story-line, and watching him talk out of his own ass has always been a pleasure.

Though, Lip's story-line could seriously be improved in this season, cause I think the character has a lot of potential and as also he is not a alcoholic anymore.

Waiting to see how much trouble Fiona gets into this time, and wouldn't mind watching her getting tips from Frank as in the last season.

Debby was great as always, finding solutions herself for all her problems and proving her worth as a Gallagher.

Overall the episode was very entertaining as well, though could be improved a little here and there, which I'm expecting the future episodes will fix.

Ciao.

This show manages to do it year after year. The same characters, but new and crazy situations to put them in.

The Fiona situation is a little weak though. I wish she had something bigger than struggling with her relationship dynamic. We've seen that since the beginning when we know that Emmy Rossum deserves better material.

A quite strong start for the new season though.

Still Great!!

In my opinion this shows main strength lies in its Drama rather than it's Comedy. And Although the Comedy can be really funny at times and It mixes the two genres quite well but I think it can somewhat take away from some of Shamless's more heartfelt moments at times... This episode in particular is pretty much ALL Comedy, however it was absolutely hilarious for me, the frank STD story line had me dying, I haven't laughed that hard in a while. Most of this shows more comedic episodes have never been my favorites but this one was great
