For someone who hasn’t watched the entire series that is Shameless, I was awfully excited to see the Gallagher house in Chicago. Now I know it’s not the set of the show, it’s just a house they mimicked for the set. But it’s still pretty freaking cool. And I mean what else am I going to do? I drove to Chicago on a whim!
Now I have to watch all of Shameless. I have watched several episodes from several seasons with friends. But at the time it just didn’t spark my interest. Maybe it took me coming down here to want to invest my time into watching it. I will update you on this later. I still have to find the time to finish watching the rest of the twenty shows I watch each week.
The Gallagher House that’s portrayed in Shameless is someone’s actual home that people have turned into a must-see tourist destination. My guess is that they are renovating the house using all of the donations they’ve received from people visiting. When arrived at the house there was a few work trucks in the back where the pool would have been and two security guards at the fence.
Whatever they’re doing with the house, it looks nice. So kudos to them.
It was a such a nice experience to be able to just hop in my car and drive to Chicago in the middle of the day. No plans or anything. And then to be able to walk around the city without rushing before heading over to the Gallagher house. It was a beautiful thing I tell ya. I wouldn’t trade my career for anything in the world. Unless maybe we’re talking about Bryan – I would give up my career for him. Though he wouldn’t ask me to so really it’s a win-win situation.
Anyway, back to what I was saying. If you’re like me and you haven’t yet watched all eight seasons of Shameless, you can stream it here. We can watch it together. And we can chat about it – just say hello.
