“SHAMELESS: THE COM­PLETE NINTH SEA­SON”

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tv -

No­table as the last round of the Show­time com­edy-drama se­ries to fea­ture Emmy Ros­sum, who leaves the show (at least as a reg­u­lar cast mem­ber) in the sea­son fi­nale, this col­lec­tion of sto­ries finds the Chicagob­ased Gal­laghers try­ing to im­prove their re­spec­tive lots. Fiona (Ros­sum) and Frank (Wil­liam H. Macy, who also di­rected one of the episodes here) par­tic­u­larly ven­ture out­side their com­fort zones, but as so of­ten has been the case, un­ex­pected cir­cum­stances threaten to get in the way of their plans. Guests in­clude Courteney Cox, Bob Saget, Sharon Lawrence (“NYPD Blue”) and Dan Lau­ria (“The Won­der Years”). Cameron Mon­aghan, Emma Kennedy, Steve Howey and Jeremy Allen White also are among the show’s stars. ★★★ (R: AS, N, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
