It’s Fun Rooting for the Bad Guy(s)
You see in actuality more than half of the things this family does is downright wrong. Hell everything that Frank does is wrong. And I mean wrong from a technical and legal standpoint, as well as moral. From dealing drugs, to covering up lawsuits, injury, disease, you name it. And yet you find yourself rooting for this family because you want to see them survive. A show with that ability to make you love people who do so many wrong things is very very rare. And I love it.
The characters other than the Gallaghers are All Fun
From neighbors like Veronica to dirty friends like Jasmine, each of the characters outside of the Gallagher clan have their own stories and own problems. And somehow you can feel all of them despite the show only being an hour long. Bartender Kevin is awesome. Sheila Jackson (played by Joan Cusack) is absolutely nuts and an agoraphobic germaphobe. Karen Jackson is the neighborhood bad girl and of course nymphomanic who Lip constantly sleeps with. Hell there’s even an Amish girl in the show (who recently departed).
