I hope that they've already planned-out Series 11 before they decided to re-label Series 10. Otherwise, we may be in for a longer wait for S11 than usual, or worse still, this one might be the last series.Fenrir51 (talk) 19:25, September 10, 2012 (UTC)
- I doubt this'll be the last series. Of course I could be wrong but I just don't think we're there yet. Of course that could easily change, I haven't kept an eye on the ratings or anything but I can see from people in the community that fans are giving up on the show more and more. The slow destruction of the Gallagher Family hasn't helped, and though I know this can't be helped, actors move on, it's still putting a dent in the show. I really do think David Threlfal (Frank) will have had enough at some point in the near future (though I'm sure they'll do their best to hold on to him with money), it really seems like they're phasing him out. He does have his odd episode where it's focused around him but there was an episode in Series 9 where he didn't show up at all. And I think without Frank the show just wouldn't be the same. But I wouldn't be surprised if we have a bigger gap between (the rather short again) Series 10 and Series 11. Whatever happens I'm sure the US series has a future (though I can't stand it lol) and I just hope to god that when the show does end we get a reunion special. I want them to tempt back as many old characters as possible, it would be absolutely awesome to see the original cast back (Debbie, Ian, Carl, Lip, Liam, Fiona, Steve, Monica, Kev, Veronica, Micky, Paddy, Sheila and perhaps the ghost of Mandy again, to name but a lot) to take it back to when the show was at it's best. As I'm sure I've mentioned on here before almost all of my favorite characters are gone now, theres pretty much only Kelly, Karen, Mimi and Shane left. So if any more leave I will be well pissed off. Sorry for the essay, don't get much of a chance to talk over the show :P -- Lyco499 (talk) 21:28, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
I have occasionally heard it remarked from a few people that the series needs 'fresh characters', but its already had plenty of those in the last couple of years alone, and it hasn't really helped the show any, so far. Quite the opposite, I think it needs many of the old cast back, as they helped make Shameless what it was in the first place. The Gallagher children, for the large part, were the reason for the show's existence. They were the real heroes of this drama. Frank needed his family, and without them, he's rudderless. Patty and Aidan Croker, Marty Fisher and Kelly Maguire were only placed under his roof as to provide the explanation for why he still has a home. And Stella, not even five years old, is rarely seen at all and probably will never become a fully-fledged character. Frank may basically be the figurehead of Shameless, but he's not the sole reason for its success. And I fear for its future, given the way things are.--Fenrir51 (talk) 22:21, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
- I completely agree with you. Especially when it comes to fresh characters. Series 9 saw a few new faces and they feel shoe horned in and pretty useless to me so far. It feels like Ruby was added because the Maguire clan needed a new sassy female hanging around with them (the type to go out on adventures instead of spend their life behind the bar like Karen) after Kelly left Shane. I see no reason for Dominic and Gloria, the whole "has known all the characters all along, just never been seen on screen before" thing with Gloria seemed like a really lazy way to set up an instant relationship with the other characters. I do like the Powells some what though, seems like they're finally starting to be used properly instead of being there for equality's sake. -- Lyco499 (talk) 01:05, September 13, 2012 (UTC)
Game of Thrones Actors in Shameless.
So far in Series 10, we've seen John Bradley-West, who plays Samwell Tarly in HBO's Game of Thrones, as portraying Frank's new boss at World of Burghers in episodes 1 and 2 of Series 10. And in Episode 3, we've seen Natalie Tena, who plays the Wildling Osha in Game of Thrones, as playing the indentured Brazilian maid whom Marty Fisher bought, so he could "set her free".
