Political fervor hits the South Side in Season 9, and the Gallaghers take justice into their own hands.
Frank sees financial opportunity in campaigning and decides to give voice to the underrepresented South Side working man. Fiona tries to build on her success with her apartment building and takes an expensive gamble hoping to catapult herself into the upper echelon. Lip distracts himself by taking in Eddie’s niece, Xan.

Kevin and V juggle the demands of raising the twins with running the Alibi as they attempt to transform the bar into a socially conscious business.
The Gallaghers have always scraped by, but this season finds some of them finally getting a leg up, with more changes than the Chicago River.
When Frank awakens from a coma to learn that his loved ones tossed him in the river, he declares war – Gallagher vs. Gallagher. But Fiona is too busy improving her own life to worry about Frank’s. After last season’s betrayal, she’s now moved on, and nothing is getting in the way of her new life as manager of Patsy’s – including her family.
Gallagher Golden Boy Lip finishes up his time in rehab, and emerges with a new outlook on alcoholism and his future, whereas the once-unstable Ian is now thriving as an EMT and in a comfortable relationship. Debbie is still figuring out how to be a good mom to young Franny, while Carl has some big decisions to face as he enters manhood.
With Fiona’s new determination, will the rest of the Gallaghers fall apart without her there to pick up the pieces?
The more things change, the more the Gallaghers stay the same. Whether it’s employment, education, or healthcare, the Gallaghers have issues!

But with Ian still missing; Debbie and Carl dealing with their adolescent hormones (or lack thereof); and neighbors Kev and Veronica pregnant with multiple babies, moving up isn’t so easy when you’re down and out.

Double bill of children's features. 'Marmaduke' (2010) is a part live action, part CGI-animated family comedy based on the long-running comic strip. When the Winslow family moves from Kansas to Orange County, California with their goofy, accident-prone Great Dane, Marmaduke (voiced by Owen Wilson), the big dog experiences all kinds of trouble fitting in with his new canine neighbours.

Eight years after the InGen incident, Dr. Alan Grant is happy with his life far from any dinosaurs other than fossilized. Unfortunately, he is extremely short in research money, and therefore accepts the offer of wealthy businessman Paul Kirby: A low flight over isolated Isla Sorna, where InGen's second research site was located, and Dr. Grant can fund his future research for a long time.
What Dr. Grant didn't know is that Kirby just needs a dinosaur expert to help him and his wife find their 14-year-old son Eric, who crashed on the island while paragliding.
What he did suspect, but never wanted to witness, is that the Velociraptors have evolved into a communicating species (and seemingly all along had the capability to do so), now being smarter than primates.
Jerry (William H. Macy), a small-town Minnesota car salesman is bursting at the seams with debt... but he's got a plan. He's going to hire two thugs (Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare) to kidnap his wife in a scheme to collect a hefty ransom from his wealthy father-in-law. It's going to be a snap and nobody's going to get hurt... until people start dying.
Enter Police Chief Marge (Frances McDormand), a coffee-drinking, parka-wearing - and extremely pregnant - investigator who'll stop at nothing to get her man. And if you think her small-time investigative skills will give the crooks a run for their ransom... you betcha!
Meet Frank Gallagher: proud, working-class patriarch to a motley brood of six smart, spirited and independent kids who, without him, would be... better off.
In Frank's booze-addled view, parenting just eats into his hard-earned bar-crawling and carousing time around Chicago -- so he leaves it to eldest daughter Fiona to hold down the fort. Bearing the de facto parent badge/burden, she's donned the proverbial apron and makes sure her younger siblings do their chores, keep a clean(ish) home and feed the kitty -- the Gallagher family fund jar -- because the gas bill is due, and everyone (no matter how small) works to keep the house lights on, as well as food on the table. Brothers Lip , Ian and Carl use their intellect to break every rule in the book to survive and make the bank, while younger sister Debbie would sooner steal her share.
The Gallaghers are irreverent, endearing, resilient -- and they're absolutely, wildly and unapologetically Shameless.

Macy star in Wild Hogs, the hysterically funny comedy about four weekend-warrior friends who decide to rev up their ho-hum suburban lives with a cross-country motorcycle adventure.

Claire Simmons is in pain. Her physical pain is evident in the scars that line her body and the way she carries herself, wincing with each tentative step. She's no good at hiding her emotional pain either. Blunt to the point of searing insult, Claire's anger seethes out of her with nearly every interaction.
She has driven away her husband, her friends - even her chronic-pain support group has kicked her out. The only one left in Claire's otherwise solitary existence is her housekeeper-cum-caretaker, Silvana, who barely tolerates her boss' need for liquor and prescription pills. But the suicide of Nina, one of Claire's fellow chronic-pain group members, prompts another fixation.
In pursuing questions about the death of a woman she barely knew, Claire explores the boundaries between life and death, abandonment and heartbreak, danger and salvation. As she inserts herself into the lives of Nina's husband and the son Nina left behind, Claire just might find salvation.

Intricately-plotted legal thriller based on the bestseller by acclaimed crime novelist Michael Connelly. Matthew McConaughey plays criminal defence lawyer Mickey Haller, who prefers working out of the back of his Lincoln town car to sitting in an office. When Haller takes on rich young real estate broker Louis Ross Roulet (Ryan Phillippe) as a client, the case seems pretty cut-and-dried. As events progress, however, Haller starts to doubt Roulet's veracity, and echoes from past cases come back to haunt him. Before too long, Haller knows he's being played by a pro, but to what end and for what purpose? Marisa Tomei, John Leguizamo and William H. Macy co-star while Brad Furman directs.
Despite being born with cerebral palsy, Bill Porter grew up to take the physically demanding job of a door-to-door salesman in the worst neighborhood in Portland, Oregon (without pay, only commissions). Eventually he became the company's top salesman in the city, the region, and finally the country. Along the way he learned powerful life lessons that he imparted to those around him. One of those people was Shelly Brady, first hired by Porter as a typist and driver, later a great friend. In this inspiring book, she brings together those lessons. These seemingly simple ideas - "Mothers Know Best," "Persistence Pays Off," "Know Your Limits but Reach Beyond Them" - resonate powerfully when seen through the lens of a life lived to the fullest against what would be impossible odds for many. Whether finding cooperative bellmen to button his cuffs or beaming a video to his speaking engagements because of ill health, Porter, whose life story became a cause cé lè bre in the 1990s, gets the job done with a smile - and shows readers how to do the same.
