Shameless Glee

The festive season, as we always knew it would, has finally bitten the dust. If you’re reading this, you must have got through it at least partially unscathed. At times like this, thank your lucky stars you’re not Frank Gallagher, who has his own personal New Year’s Eve every time he can rustle up the price of enough super strength.

Yes, the mighty Shameless is back, and to celebrate Channel 4 is bingeing on Chatsworth’s finest, popping the ring pull of a fresh episode at 10pm every night this week. To remind you of what the madness is all about, here’s Frank delivering a typically well-considered political analysis of today’s Britain.

And if your New Year-addled brain needs more jogging to make a hot date (protection advised) with the Shameless crew, remember you can watch all seven previous series right here on 4oD. That really is an astonishing catalogue of bad, mad and dangerous-to-know behaviour…

Series 8 promises to be right up there with the brilliant worst of them, but don’t just take our word for it…

Over on E4, 2011 finally kicks in for real this week, too, with the eagerly awaited return of the musical youth-fest that is Glee. As you can see and hear from this clip, nothing – least of all the ludicrously OTT auto-tuned vocals – has been dialled down for Series 2.

Finally, news of an E4 series that, if anything, has been awaited with even more bated (though less finely tuned) breath. Series 5 of Skins is on its way. More on this later. In the meantime, try and make do with this intriguingly clothes-free trailer of the teens who fell to earth…

    A new series of Shameless? Can’t wait, but I hope they aren’t taking it too far, sometimes classic programmes start so well but tail off towards the end (like series 8…) and wish they had pulled the plug when they were on a high. Either way, I’ll be watching.

    Not interested in Glee at all, don’t get the hype. Shameless is great though, proper Channel 4!
