Jackson "Jax" Teller is one member of the brotherhood, who finds his own loyalty to the group tested when he experiences its increasing lawlessness and notoriety, while at the same time adjusting to life as a father.

  • Great show overall with a suckish ending

    8.0
    Overall great show, but the last few episodes of the show were stupid. Like for instance, Jax killed his mother. Really? What man can just shoot his own mother in the back of the head without any remorse? Sure, she caused alot of deaths with all of her lies, but its his mother for fuck's sake. And he didn't even tell her he loved her before blowing her brains out. And now, Abel doesn't have a grandmother.



    Also, I don't think Sutter thought out the last few minutes of the show too well. Did he not realize that Thomas is now an orphan? Jax, aside from his half brother Abel, was his last living relative. He has no uncles, aunts, parents, or grandparents. So Thomas will probably lead a very depressing life, especially due to the fact that almost everyone he knew died before he could even say his first word. Abel at least has a mother to look after him, but Thomas is fucked. And now Abel and Thomas have been left in the care of a junkie and a pimp. But hey, that's okay right? What could possibly go wrong?



    Also, that high speed chase bullshit was pretty stupid. Jax would've been shot dead the moment he opened fire on that first officer. I understand it was supposed to be a powerful scene, with all the cops chasing after him. But let's be honest, these modern day cops would've killed Jax.



    I liked the show overall, but how it ended was pretty suckish.

    I had so little expectations going in to this show, which is why it was so good to me. I loved the drama and loved the violence that went a long with it. It was a lot different than what you were use to seeing on TV. I loved every second of this show. Season 7 being the last season ended very well, but it was based off of a lie which made damn near everything that happened meaningless almost.moreless

    One of the best tv shows in years, the way they put great songs over the action is a fantastic winning formula. I just found some nice props from the show up for auction here 70977_sons-of-anarchy-girl-with-the-dragon-tattoo/page1
  • Turrible

    4.5
    Very dull acting. Portrays a small town, "good old boys" city with the forced idea that the biker gang are the good guys. The same gang who sells guns to support drug running. Then, in the same city, it seems like there are, on average, 1,285 unsolved murders a year that seemingly get swept under the rug.



    Anyways, besides the plots, the actors are lame. Peg Bundy does ok ;-) But the whole show carries the acting quality of Married With Children, so maybe that's why she seems ok to me. "Jax", on the other hand, totally doesn't look nor act like a prominent figure of any motorcycle gang, let alone one such as SAMCRO. Actually, I used to only see Ron Perlman in cheap sci-fi movies. He was bad in them. He did improve a lot for SoA, imo, but you can't polish a turd. And the turd, in this case, is the entire script and screen play.



    Let's add some more to this. The Sons call Latinos "wetbacks" and constantly say derogatory things about their race. Yet, their rival African American gang never once receives any racist, derogatory terms. Double standards? This shows where we are in America, today. There's not enough Mexicans for it to matter, but we can't talk bad about black people. Real life middle aged white men in biker gangs would have been racist towards the black gang, just as much as they were the brown gang. But clearly Sutter thought it was only racist to speak bad of blacks, and that the Mexicans don't matter.



    Oh, another pet peeve, when Mayan "Salvador" or whatever his name was, took off in his 3rd generation Fbody (late 80's/early 90's Camaro), the federal agents described it as a "late model sedan"... TWICE. Looks like someone needs a dictionary next to their writing desk. A sedan is a four door car. And there has never been a four door Camaro since its inception in 1967. A "late model car" is a car which has been recently designed or manufactured, often the latest model. This was the third of, at the time, five generations.moreless
  • Sad and shame on Kurt Sutter

    10
    You ended what I believe was the best action TV Show today, what really sad was you never explored life on the road, nor any other gangs actions other then the brief battles we saw. BTW Jax's would of never killed his Mom, Sutter this was stupid and Jax riding into a semi on a highway LOL wow. Just remeber Sutter it was YOU who lost interest in SoA NOT US. I hope and pray someone comes along and does a Bobby in shower thing that Dallas did and Bring Jax's back to life and lead his crew out of Charming and on the road.



    I rate the show a 10
