Shameless (US) (2014)

So this is a way back post that I’ve been holding on to. The episode’s title is Lazarus which obviously is fitting to the story of the episode and arc surrounding Frank Gallagher. Fighting liver failure, and receding into a terrible way of life through withdrawal symptoms Frank is seen here finally rising from his death as the story of Lazarus goes.

What I think is interesting is the meaning behind it, especially in the SHAMELESS world and translated into reality. We all are Lazarus, every moment of our lives we live to die. But it’s that moment you grasp your reality and choose if you want to stay dead or rise from it.

One of my favourite episodes of current television, and one of the moments that makes you really reconsider your life as a viewer.
