    I had this discussion yesterday day

    A mate loves the UK shameless but can't stand the US version. says its not shameless enough

    Me and the wife have watched all the US one and really liked it . Def a few flat spots in the 8 seasons but overall we are fans. We tired the UK version but after 3 or so episodes it just didn't grow on us . all the characters felt wrong

    I get what he's saying. the US one is def more light hearted and easier to watch

    I think while the UK The Office is better the US one is also great , and similarly is allot more laugh out loud funny and less dark than its UK version.So it is possible to like 2 versions of a show



    what say you .UK or US ?

    I like both versions of shameless, though I prefer the US version. Both are pretty funny at times, though I think the US version is darker in tone overall.

    I get the impression the answer is always "the one you saw first."
