bana göre, dizinin yaratıcısı paul abbott'a göre "her şeyin benzeştiği ancak başka bir kelime dağarcığında ifade edildiği" us versiyonundan çok daha iyidir. kuzey manchester
civarlarında chatsworth estates'de geçer. ailenin, çocuklarının cebinden para çalıp ecstasy alacak kadar rezil rüsva, ancak buna rağmen dizinin en sevilen karakteri olagelmiş babası frank gallagher, her dizinin başında pis kuzeyli aksanıyla şöyle der:
"now nobody’s saying the chatsworth estates is the garden of eden. at least i don’t think they are. but it has been a good home to us. to me frank gallagher and me kids who i’m proud of cause every single one them reminds me a little of me. they can all think for themselves which they’ve got me to thank for.
fiona who’s a big help. a massive help.
lip who’s a bit of a gob shite which is why nobody calls him phillip anymore.
ian a lot like his mom which is handy for the others because she’s disappeared into thin air and good luck to her.
and carl we daren’t let him grow his hair for two reasons. one it makes it stands on ends and looks like toyah and two the nits love it.
debbie sent by god. total angel. you have to check your change but she’ll go miles out of her way to do you a favor.
plus liam. going to be a star. once we’ve got the fits under control.
steve. fiona's boyfriend. the truth is out there. not.
shelia me bird. couldn’t be happier. a few mast short of a full sail.
three things, see, are vital to a half decent community. you need wide open spaces where everyone goes mental. and neighbourliness. fantastic neighbours. kevin and veronica. lend you anything well not anything. but all of them to a man who knows first and foremost one of the most vital necessities in life is they know how to throw a party. ahahah scatter!"
