info_outline AlibiCast #120: Possibly The Last 12/17/2019
AlibiCast #120: Possibly The Last I know we keep saying we're going to quit Shameless but it might stick this time. At the top of this episode, we chat about how the show isn't bringing us enough joy to keep doing regular coverage of it. We're not promising we'll never record again, but we are suspending regular recording for now. All past episodes will continue to be available. But this ep does contain one last episode analysis for you, on 10.6 "Sparky", which I think is important in understanding why we're so frustrated with the show.
info_outline AlibiCast #119: F*cking Franks 12/07/2019
AlibiCast #119: F*cking Franks Its the fourth episode of season 10 and we really didn't like much about this episode.

info_outline AlibiCast #117: Mayonnaise Lube 11/23/2019
AlibiCast #117: Mayonnaise Lube Its the second episode of season 10 and we still hate Frank and Mikey! Luckily for us, there's some great Lip and Gallavich content to go with it. Holly, Serrae and Melissa discuss the problems with Frank, being disgusted by mayo now and much more!

AlibiCast #113: It Lets Grizz Be Grizz Its another bonus episode to get us through hiatus, as we got together with special guest, Carrie Raisler, to discuss the Netflix YA drama, The Society. This 10 episode show centers on a group of teenagers who are mysteriously transported to a version of their hometown where they are the only residents and they cannot escape. Instead, they must figure out how to survive and organize. Our initial discussion is spoiler free and we transition to spoiler filled discussion around the 27th minute mark.
info_outline AlibiCast #112: I Don't Care If You're A Criminal 04/14/2019
AlibiCast #112: I Don't Care If You're A Criminal As Shameless hiatus chugs along, we wanted to get together and talk about a show we're loving right now that might fill that Shameless hole in your heart until season 10: Good Girls. Just like Shameless, this NBC show mixes comedy and drama and might have you rooting for criminals. It follows the path of three moms in Detroit who break bad in order to take care of their families.

AlibiCast #109: He was a Bitch Baby This week, we're chatting about two episodes of Shameless season 9: "Los Diablos" and "The Hobo Games." We're marching ever closer to the season finale, but the various plotlines are all pretty much a mess, as Fiona continues to spiral, Debbie and Carl develop a rivalry that your hosts hate, and Lip just has too many children to deal with.
info_outline AlibiCast #108: We Were Right, You Were Wrong 02/07/2019
AlibiCast #108: We Were Right, You Were Wrong This week the whole crew is back to discuss episode 9.9 "BOOOOOOOOOOOONE." We think we should be forgiven for thinking it meant "Bone" instead of "Boone." First up, we're talking about the season 10 renewal and associated news and then its on to the episode. We're still not fans of Lip's love life, we're never happy about Frank, and Kelly remains perfect.

AlibiCast #107: There's A Line, Dude Shameless is back from their first ever midseason hiatus and so are we! Melissa, Vee, and Holly are chatting about "The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Alibi." We've got complaints about pretty much everything except Carl and Kelly, who remain the best thing this season has going for it.
info_outline AlibiCast #106: Might As Well 12/14/2018
AlibiCast #106: Might As Well We've reached the midpoint of the midseason hiatus! After taking some time away to recover from losing an entire recording, we're back to re-discuss 9.7 "Down Like the Titanic." Its a classic Fiona spiral, y'all! Plus Lip's terrible love interest is back, we've got issues with Kevin and Kelly should stay forever.

And its time for the first Gallagher to leave our screens and the South Side, as we say goodbye to Ian and his Doug Ross.
info_outline AlibiCast #104: She Smelled Lovely 10/13/2018
AlibiCast #104: She Smelled Lovely This week on Shameless, Ian wrestles with his legal choices, Fiona remembers she's a big sister, and Lip is 2 Sober 2 Furious. Meanwhile, Kevin remains the best person on the show and Liam gets a storyline that nobody needs to see ever again! All that and more as we discuss "Black Haired Ginger."
info_outline AlibiCast #103: That Means Watersports 10/07/2018
AlibiCast #103: That Means Watersports Shameless has reached 100 episodes! Fiona can't decide who to vote for, because she's a Republican now or something, Lip still inexplicably is obsessed with a kid, and Carl gets into a duel! All that and more as we discuss "Do Right, Vote White!"

AlibiCast #102: Extremely Broken We're back after a short break to discuss two episodes of Shameless: 9.2 Mo White! and 9.3 Weirdo Gallagher Vortex. While there are bits and pieces of these two episodes we like, we're also chatting about an unfunny collision of real life and the show and our emotional disconnect from the Gallagher siblings.
info_outline AlibiCast #101: Just Jack Off 09/16/2018
AlibiCast #101: Just Jack Off We're chatting about the season premier of season 9 this week! Fiona faces a decision on risking her real estate investment, Ian dabbles in collective bargaining and somebody finally does something about the Kassadi situation. Oh, and CGI rats do it, because Shameless is gonna Shameless.
info_outline AlibiCast #99: I Can Do Whatever I Want In My Brain 07/15/2018
AlibiCast #99: I Can Do Whatever I Want In My Brain A little hiatus check in for us, as we get together to talk about a show we've chatted about before: Hit the Floor. The soapy favorite of ours is back after two years and a network move and we're chatting about the first new episode and the changes that two years have necessitated. Naturally, we're also chatting about renewal campaigns, revivals and how we feel about some of our favorite actors and characters being lost in the move. Some spoilers for Hit the Floor, Shameless and Bomb Girls!
info_outline AlibiCast #97: Thanks for Noticing 01/27/2018
AlibiCast #97: Thanks for Noticing We're chatting about 8.10 and 8.11 this week, since our last episode got eaten by the tech gods. We're not fond of Ian's cult figure storyline or Fiona's landlord situation, but Lip's arc is still mostly working for us. What's not working? Carl and Kassidi. Losing toes might be preferable to more Kassidi for your hosts.
info_outline AlibiCast #96: Full Frank Again 01/13/2018
AlibiCast #96: Full Frank Again Only a few episodes of season 8 left! This week, Holly and Serrae are chatting about 8.9 The Fugees! Ian is leading a movement, Carl is trapped in a nightmare, Lip is trapped in a soap opera, and Fiona is trapped in meandering nonsense. Can you tell what we thought of it?
info_outline AlibiCast #95: We're Already There 01/06/2018
AlibiCast #95: We're Already There We're chatting about 8.8 this week, and we're not sure what the episode title is. It doesn't really matter though, because you'll never need to watch this episode a second time. Join your hosts as we break down this mess of a script.
info_outline AlibiCast #93: Did We Need To Go There? 12/17/2017
AlibiCast #93: Did We Need To Go There? We're cranky again this week as we discuss 8.6, "Icarus Fell And Rusty Ate Him." Lip's storyline continues to be the highlight of the season, while Fiona continues to infuriate. Additionally, we're chatting about the awful social implications of how the show has handled Veronica's storyline.
info_outline AlibiCast #92: Super Garbage 12/08/2017
AlibiCast #92: Super Garbage Hold on to your butts, we've got some strong feelings about episode 5 of season 8, "The (Mis)Education of Liam Fergus Beircheart Gallager." In this episode, Debbie deals with single motherhood, Lip considers fatherhood and Fiona and Ian are at odds over real estate. Somehow, that description doesn't convey how much we hated this episode, so please listen for all the ranting.
