    Two episodes in, first year, bikers with feelings, issues, concerns, insecurities and a load of soap opera glop. Really? You lost me early.
  • I love love love this series!

    And if anyone is on the fence, I can recommend this! I was very sceptical at first, and only started to watch it because of Ron Perlman, who I'm a fan of, but I quickly got hooked. I'd say they have some of the best writers in Hollywood and a superb, talented cast.
  • So Samcro...you guys always pull a fast one on us don't you?! But does that make us trust you less??? Perhaps....but it was still bad*ss!!

    So i'm not a "reviewer". I actually have never written a review in my life! Well not since the days of schoolwork and reviewing books I looked up on 'SparksNotes' anyways. But, seeing there was not even one word spoken about this weeks premier gave me the urge to even write something small.

    So...let me first start off by saying almost all season premieres seem to lag along slowly...to some people. Honestly...this premiere did start off a bit slow but I was still so enthralled in the first opening shots I had to restart it cause I missed two words.

    I felt it was a great episode and truly lived up to the hype. Nice to see that most the promos used (which seem to give away alot) were from the premiere and didn't give too much away from the rest of the season.

    What an ending montage and what a way to show that this season's not gonna be all under the radar and enjoying the free life like they made us think. The Russians are dead...sorta...which means what?

    Jacks did what? Lied to tara's face? Or does he have some other plan we wont know about till the writers find an epic song to shoot scenes to it for.

    Also I loved how Jacks proceeded to wrap his hands around Tara and slow dance with the hands he just cold blooded murdered someone with. NICCCE!

    Great episode! Great opening to new characters and plots! Just all around great to me!moreless

    • Sheriff Eli Roosevelt: They all here?
      Cop: Yep. It's a who's who of bad guys. Niners, Mayans, Russians.
      Sheriff Eli Roosevelt: Love is in the air.

    • Lyla: With this ring, I vow my love and promise to always be a faithful and loving wife...and old lady.
      Opie: With this ring, I vow my love and I promise always to cherish and protect you.
      Jax: What else?
      Opie: And to treat you as good as my leather. (with the rest of the members) And ride you as much as my Harley!


    • Jax: The bond that holds this club together isn't about love or brotherhood anymore. We lost that a long time ago. It's just fear and greed now.

    • Clay: Damn. That was fast.
      Gemma: That's cuz you're used to speed banging Juice in a dark hallway.
      Clay: Hey, don't turn what Juice and I had into something cheap and tawdry.


      Gemma: I'm sure it was cheap Puerto Rican magic.

    • Jax: I love you, Tara. I've loved you since I was sixteen. You stayed when anyone else would have bailed. You've given me a beautiful son and taken Abel on as your own.

    • Clay: There ain't gonna be no Charming Heights.
      Unser: How you gonna stop it?
      Clay: Let nature take its course.
      Unser: I got no idea what that means, other than it involves shit and a big fan.

    • Unser: I'm not sure which cancer is worse: the one in me or the one in Charming.

    • Tara: I think we should talk about some things Jax.
      Jax: Like all the chick shit you decorated my house in?
      Tara: Sorry. Maxim posters and Harley mirrors aren't really my style.

    • Gemma: (hands Unser a bag of marijuana) I noticed your plants weren't looking too good.
      Unser: Yeah. Everything is kind of dying on me.

    • Opie: Have you been to Jellybean? It's not strippers - it's horse meat in a g-string.
      Tig: I love the Jellybean!
      Happy: I do too!
      Juice: And the freak circle is now complete.
