Podcast: 'This Week on Shameless,' episode 4: Making new friends

Season 5 | Episode 9 | “Carl’s First Sentencing” | Aired Mar 15, 2015

Welcome to This Week on Shameless, a new podcast that delves into the hilarious and heartbreaking world of the Gallaghers, TV’s best family living below the poverty line. Each week, fellow EW Community contributor Tamar Barbash and I discuss, analyze, and occasionally freak out over unexpected spouses, horrifying diagnoses, prison tattoos, and whatever else is going on in the lives of Frank, Fiona, Lip, Ian, Debbie, and Carl.

If you can’t get enough of Shameless, you’ve come to the right place—because neither can we!

This week, we take on season five, episode nine, “Carl’s First Sentencing,” in which two of the show’s youngest characters both wind up in juvie. We also talk about Frank’s new relationship with a terminally ill doctor, sex and nudity on Showtime, and the ways Shameless has disappointed us so far this season.

It’s all here in This Week on Shameless.

Shameless airs Sundays at 9/8C on Showtime.
