Just a quick appology for my complete disapearance from the Wikia for the last week or two. Due to my absence I haven't kept the site up to date either. I haven't watched the last 2, 3 as of tonight, episodes of Shameless UK.
Between illness, dating someone new and an upcoming interview for a very important job, my time has been rather monopolized. I will be back asap to update the site.
Thanks for your patience.

Well it seems the time has come. Shameless UK's eleventh series (which will air in 2013, the shows 10th year in production) is to be the last. Recently the declining ratings and ever-lowering quality has had a lot of fans saying it's time to draw the curtains and move on and it seems that coupled with other events has convinced both Channel 4 and show creator and executive producer Paul Abbott.
Abbott, who is storylining the final series, had this to say on the subject:"Its 10th anniversary seems a fitting time to shut the book on Shameless. We've had an absolute ball making this stuff up for a living. We've given back in spades and got away with absolute murder, on behalf of such a fantastically outspoken audience. But this is also the… Read more >
So I've never really used these blog entries for anything other than show or site news, with a bit of my own opinion throws in but I decided to write this entry to add to the unsettling feeling about Series 10.
So to recap, instead of Series 9 of Shameless UK having 22 episodes shown in two halves of 11 it was rather randomly decided to air the second half as Series 10. Episode 10.1 aired Wednesday the 12 September at 10PM on Channel 4 and received rather extreme reviews from viewers within the online community with the general feeling that the quality of the show has been slipping constantly and should have ended before now.
My own opinion being that Shameless is indeed a different show now to what it was in the beginning or even a few seri…

I just thought I'd remind everyone that Series 10 of Shameless UK will start this Wednesday (September 12th) at 10.00PM on Channel 4.
Now if your anything like me your confused to hear this news. Surely I mean part 2 of Series 9? Nope, for some reason the powers that be decided that Series 9's intended run of 22 episodes (two halves of 11 like Series 8) would be abandoned and Series 10 started.
I haven't been able to track down a reason for this decision, which I find rather odd, but I guess we'll just roll with the punches. Watch out for spoilers below.
Series 10 Episode 1 will see Frank forced into working when his benefits are cut, Patty forced to steal her medication and Shane, Jackson and Billy Tutton starting a new bootleg booze enterpri…Read more >
As people may have noticed, I haven't really been around lately. Unfortunately I haven't had chance to do anything with the Wiki due to training for a new job. I have my interview toward the end of August and if I get the job or of course if I don't, things will settle down again and I'll have time to take a crack at fixing this place up again.
I'm sure the second half of Shameless UK's Series 9 will be starting soon as well.
So basically, bear with my absence for now and it won't be forever. I'll do what I can until the end of the month, which quite frankly may be nothing but by the beginning of next month I should be back with some regularity.
Happy editing guys, stay shameless.

So all our recent hard work has payed off as my spotlight request has been approved. Spotlights usually occure around 2 weeks after being approved, ours was approved March 1st so it should be happening around the 15th :)
Since Series 9 and Season 2 are both airing at the moment it's the perfect time for a spotlight, and will hopefully draw in some more US fans as our pages for Shameless (US) are horribly small or non existent.
I'd like to take this oppurtunity to thank everyone that has helped the Wiki get this far and request that you stick with us to help us reach greater heights. -- Lyco499 (talk) 16:44, March 1, 2012 (UTC)
Oh and as always, I spend so much time checking a re-checking spelling on the wiki's content pages, I happily do the opp…Read more >
Well I'm back. I shall be continuing to anti tornado (the whirlwind that builds rather than destroys lol) my way through the episode pages starting tomorrow (took me most of today and to add everything back to my laptop due to the new HDD).
I'd also like to thank the person that took Micky Maguire off the character list on the main page. I knew it had to be done as there was either Billy Tutton or Dominic Meak to add in his place but I couldn't bring myself to take him down. I'm still gutted he left, even more annoyed that he had the worst most unnonitced exit ever and of course heartbroken that I wont be able to see his sexyness every episode lol. Have a good one all. -- Lyco499 (talk) 00:33, February 29, 2012 (UTC) _________________________…Read more >
So I've been rather horriby ill for the past 2 weeks or so, haven't even had chance to watch the last 2 episodes of Series 9 (which I'm about to do now) or any of the US show. So if I missed anything that required cleaning up etc then I'm sorry, but that's the evil of having no one else interested in a position of power here lol.
Anyways, I'm about to watch the las two episodes of S9 back to back and then I'm going to be going through all edits since I was last on the Wiki to make sure everything has Wiki mark up, links etc. If I have the time then I'd like to clean up the new episode pages that have been added over the last month or so. It's great to have the episode plot summaries as they're the part no one seems to enjoy writting (myself…Read more >
So both Series 9 of Shameless and Season 2 of it's US version are under way now, meaning a new work load for the Wiki :P I'm trying to scramble the Wiki together a little faster than usual because I'd like to take advantage of a both shows airing together by getting our Wiki featured. We're not quite up to standard for it, but we will be soon.
Just a reminder as well, Series 9 began yesterday (Monday 9th Jan) but it'll be continuing today with the first few episodes airing each day before they go weekly.
So feel free to discuss the new episodes below, tell us what you think of Chatsworths new residents or how you feel the new Gallaghers are getting on over the pond.
I'd like to take this oppurtunity to thank our mysterious anonymous editor wh…Read more >
Well Christmas and the New Year that is 2012 doth aproach. First I'd like to say thank you to our few diehard editors and our loyal readers, who make the hours and hours I sink into this wiki worthwhile :) We're pretty close to out 200+ goal to be eligible for featured wiki status too.
Now with Christmas aproaching I really don't have the time to be stopping by and editing as much as usual, as my huge decline in recent times has shown. I will however be going into overdrive just after Xmas as January is fast aproaching which means the start of the UK version of Shameless' Season 2, which is the key to us getting featured and pulling in a new chrowd of visitors. But to get that featured status we need at least 200 pages of content and a smal…Read more >
Well we've had a nice chunk of information on Series 9 thanks to Channel 4's recent press release (thanks to Infinitellamas for pointing it out) and I've added everything I know to the Series 9 page along with details from said press release. Spoiler warning obviously, everything sounds to be quite crazily up in the air with the story line, rather shocking changes are afoot.
Other than that, I may have to take a forced break from the Wiki for a while due to my piece of crap expensive laptop. You see I had my old laptop for years before the backlight broke, it was fixed but I bought a new one with an extra big hard drive only for said hard drive to break. It was warranty fixed but now my computer has told me to back everything up and shutdow…Read more >
Well it seems that despite the fact that Series 8 of Shameless is nearing it's end here in the UK, this wiki hasn't seen the traffic I'd hoped. But Series 2 of the US version is beginning at the start of the new year, so if we can get a spotlight/feature for the wiki around that time we should really capitalize and draw in some users.
So basicaly we need to get the Wiki up to scratch before we can even apply. This means that we need (red for things we haven't done yet, green for goals we have):
- 200 pages of content. We currently have 176. However, these pages cannot include stubs and stub articles should not make up more that 1/5th of the total which means that we can't have more than 29 or 30 stub articles or pages short enough to be stub art…
Well the 100th Episode aired this Tuesday on E4 and will air next Tuesday on Channel 4. Anyone afraid of spoilers please don't read ahead. As we knew, Dean Lennox Kelly returned as Kevin Ball to help save Frank from his worst jam yet. The episode stands as the longest yet I believe, at just under 1 hour 15 minutes and was definitely up to a better standard than some from the last few series, it also didn't have a Post Credit Scene which I think is a first.
Something I had no idea about until looking at the credits to update this wiki, was that Paul Abbott, the shows creator and producer who hasn't written an episode since Series 4 Episode 8, returned to write the episode. I've never heard an explanation on why he gave up writing the show mo…Read more >
Well, this coming Tuesday night on Channel 4 Jack Deam will be returning as Marty Fisher. If you watch the show a week earlier on E4 like myself, you'll have already seen this. I was rather happily surprised personally that it doesn't seem he's going to be leaving again straight away.
And the following week on Channel 4, this coming Tuesday on E4, we have the return of Dean Lennox Kelly as Kevin Ball :D which I'm damn excited about personally, and I hope he doesn't leave again in the same episode.
I've been thinking recently that if Kev and Marty are returning, then why not Veronica Fisher? She's Marty's sister and as far we know, Kev's nearest and dearest. But we've heard nothing to suggest that the amazing Maxine Peake will be returning wi…Read more >
Well rumors abound lately that Kevin Ball will be returning to the Chatsworth Estate in Shameless' 100th Episode. But one person we know for definite is returning is the Tourette's suffering, pyromaniac brother of Veronica: Marty Fisher!
And you may have noticed the awesome make over we've received over the last few days, all thanks to JoePlay of the Community Content Team. Didn't take him long but he sure as hell rocked it, so a tip 'o the hat to Joe.
I've just started watching the US Shameless, as we need the infomation but we're not drawing in the US fans, because that requires having some US infomation to begin with. So as much as I know I'm going to hate it, I'm watching it to add everything I can. Thank god it's only one season.
So I be…Read more >
Well things are certainly picking up around her lately. We've gotten a few more members and more importantly, actual editors who have done more than add some wrong infomation! :O hehe. So thank you to our recent editors who have showing some definite initative with adding pages for individual episodes :) and also, thank you to JenJanex for our simple yet awesome new logo/watermark. It was this that spurred on with the colour scheme change that I'd held off on for fear of making things look a little amateur and tacky but I think it definately works :) I'm currently watching Series 3 and adding to the Wikia as I go, though I think what I'm going to have to do is make a list of all the main characters, Gallaghers, Maguires, Karibs, Powells an…Read more >
Well people, I realize we are veeeery few at the moment, and a lot of users don't even have accounts so I'll make this brief.
As has been stated elsewhere I'm doing my best to bring this Wiki up to standard. Shameless Wiki was started by someone 3 years ago and has lived it's life a skeleton, with brief and few pages stocked with badly writen, un-wikified and short pages. But as a huge fan of both Shameless and Wikia's I adopted this place to turn it into a usefull source of infomation for Shameless fans.
I intended to be alot more intensive with my building but life has gotten in the way a bit so I've been adding and editing in drips and drabs every few days, and I'll likely continue to build this way for a while.
So basicaly, I'm going to m…Read more >
