THIS SERIES IS THE UN-EDITED, UK BROADCAST VERSION "Well written and well acted"-Library Journal "Amusing, off-kilter stories"-Deseret (UT) News As seen on PBS "Wonderful performances from terrific TV actors" -Daily Mirror (U.K.) Retired cops solve cold cases in this hit British series Detectives Jack Halford (James Bolam, The Beiderbecke Affair), Brian Lane (Alun Armstrong, Garrow's Law), and Gerry Standing (Dennis Waterman, The Sweeney) retired years ago. Then sexy superintendent Sandra Pullman (Amanda Redman, Sexy Beast) talked them into joining her Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad. Ever since, they've been cracking cold cases, proving that old-school sleuthing skills are still the best way to solve a crime. Britain's highest-rated TV drama sizzles with wit, camaraderie, and chemistry among its stars. Season Eight takes them from a museum to a zoo and from a biker gang to witness protection in search of killers who thought they were in the clear. Along the way, Gerry signs up for a French cooking class, Sandra copes with a handsome ex, and everyone frets about budget cuts. Guest stars include Peter Davison (Doctor Who, The Last Detective), Keith Allen (Robin Hood), and Sheila Hancock (The Boy in the Striped Pajamas).
Shameless: The Complete Second Season William H. Macy stars in this racy and edgy adaptation of the long-running British family drama as Frank Gallagher, the alcoholic patriarch of a large, unconventional, blue-collar family. In the U.S. version, the sprawling Gallagher family has been transplanted to working-class Chicago during the challenging times of todays recession. Making ends meet is always difficult, especially with a mother who is AWOL and a father who usually ends up passed out on the living room floor. Emmy Rossum stars as oldest daughter Fiona, who is left to the often impossible task of keeping her five younger brothers and sisters on track. Welcome back to another season of depravity starring the family who puts the fun in dysfunctional. The Gallaghers, central characters in Shameless, are "living crappily ever after," or so the tagline goes, and in this second season of the Showtime series (with 12 episodes, plus bonus material, on three discs) they more than live up to that billing-especially Frank (William H. Macy), a strong candidate for the worst fictional father figure since Darth Vader. In just the first three episodes, this unrepentant drunk puts up his 2-year-old son as collateral after losing a ridiculous $10,000 bet; steals an engagement ring another man intends to give to the daughter of Sheila (Joan Cusack), the agoraphobic widow Frank regularly sponges off of; and withholds the news that a heart has become available for transplanting into a dying woman friend whose pension Frank hopes to steal. As before, all of this leaves his six kids to pretty much fend for themselves. They include twentysomething Fiona (Emmy Rossum), the de facto mom, who takes care of five siblings and manages to hold the whole thing together while barely staying a step ahead of her own tangled love life; Lip (Jeremy Allen White), a scam artist whos smart, resourceful, and caring; Ian (Cameron Monaghan), who despite his homosexuality yearns to attend West Point
