Over the past few weeks I have binge-watched Shameless on Netflix. I’m on Season 10. Is this a taboo subject? I love the show. I just wonder how well it portrays reality for that area of the South Side, in a comedy-drama way, of course. I’ve never been to Chicago, except for a connection at O’Hare. I enjoyed seeing the city from above. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Hmm. The set is definitely accurate. It's filmed in Chicago.
Not like other shows where it says Chicago but it's Toronto or NYC.

Beyond that, it's not super accurate. Canaryville is technically one of the last few "white" blue collar areas inside the city. But the house from the show isn't technically in that neighborhood.

Someone who has seen more of the show could probably say more.

There is a huge running thread on the show in the TV Forum (Entertainment). That is where you will find discussion on the show.
