After so much intensity and darkness that is “Shameless”, season six took on lighter tones. We got a lot of comedy back and lots of storylines for fun and that were lighthearted. Of course, there was still very low downs, but overall the season felt pretty light. It did allow us to focus in more on the Gallaghers, our original focus. Over the years, we’ve gotten to meet lots of new characters and the show almost got more interested in them than our beloved Gallaghers (I’m looking at you Milkovichs). So while it was a jolt to have Mickey, Sammi, or even Monica to deal with this season, it was kind of nice to have it be primarily about the Gallaghers.
Watching Mickey literally beg Ian to lie to him was not the way gallavich fans hoped that season 6 would begin.
