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.
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
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.
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'm watching this show on Netflix, and currently I'm at the end of season 3. I love the show, it's superb! There's so much acting and drama in the show! The only problem I might have with the show is that people die in nearly every episode.
From what I hear, the final season of SoA sucks. So my 10/10 rating may change along with my review if this is true. But as of now, this show is turning out great!
I am SO disappointed over the final chase scene that it left a sour taste in my mouth over the whole series. It's not hard to tell they gave a bunch of high school dropouts $157.00 and told them to go wild. All this so they could get an early start on a drunken after party. It's so bad it's hard to know where to begin.
How about this? Since when is Interstate 580 a two lane back country road with a double yellow line? And can somebody explain to me how "Interstate 580" goes from two lanes to four and back to two in what seems to be a totally random, although somewhat alternating, pattern?
Why was the chase scene filmed at about 20 MPH? Who were they chasing? OJ? If it was supposed to be slow motion why did they go to the trouble of speeding up the flashing lights?
What happened to Jax? Did the semi stop in time? With all the blood and gore and violence for SEVEN years why wimp out on the final shot? I expected the grand finale to be a GRAND FINALE! Not some green screen cop out to save a few bucks. I wanted an aerial shot of the bug hitting the windshield!
There was a lot more stupid stuff in that final minute or so but this is what sticks in my mind and I'm too damn disgusted to watch it again.
What is the obsession with gay sex and shoving things up people's ass on this show? Seriously, are all bikers this strange? The storyline is getting way out there too. I swear they have killed over half the people in the lovely little town of charming and nobody gets in trouble. For such a beautiful little town it sure has a lot of white supremacists, gangsters, hookers, transvestites, porn stars, and bikers! Does anybody else live in charming? Please end the show soon before the terrible acting kills me to!
Hands down the best show ever! Kurt Sutter has outdone himself and has definitely chosen the perfect actors/actresses for the part! What else do people expect a five year old to say? Very entertaining! I love it!
Wife and I have watched this show from the beginning. The way we hope it ends is; All of the gangs that are still alive get together and massacre the entire SOA club, including Gemma of course. As Jax and Gemma lay there dying Gemma tells Jax that it was her who killed Tara. Jax shoots Gemma and then blows his brains out.
I really like this show even though when i step back and really analyze I realise I shouldn't. They are essentially just the worse criminal organisation in the world, forever making bad decisions, trusting/killing the wrong people, not killing people they should when they should like Gemma and many others. But I suppose its these bad decisions that make the show. Its good fun but put your brain in neutral, oh and season 3 is god awful trash. I'm Irish, born and bred and that season is an insult to the country and our accents.
Kurt Sutter (writer of The Shield) creates great characters with eccentric and complex storylines that fit together perfectly. Caught onto this great show late, but ever since then I've been advising everyone to watch it!
From the outset Sons of Anarchy delivers terrific story telling and hardass violence. From their relationships with the other gangs within their area to their dealings with the Cartel and IRA. Any fan who has seen this show will admit that from the beginning you will find yourself hooked and at the end of every season you will have the calender out counting down to the beginning of the new season. The Cast of Hunnam , Ron Pearlman, Katey Sagal and others play their characters as if it was their calling to be in this show.
Sons of Anarchy burst onto our screens for the first time back in 2008. Roaring full throttle in a hail of beards, bullets and scorching leather. From the first episode I was hooked. The pixies that have been under their 90210 rocks, I will elaborate a little, just for you. The show centres on two parallel storylines, tightly woven. - See more at: 21774053/article/2198018
Die hard SOA fan, can't wait for season 7 to start. It is sad about Tara, but it was inevitable really. The show is filled with drama and action, which i love. Jax is gorgeous, i love and hate Gemmas character, Katey Sagel does a fantastic job. Love all the SOA crew too! Awesome show
So Tara is finally gone, good riddance! Her expressions are always more or less the same. Most of the time she walks with a frown and walks with limps arms to the side. ( the walking dead ) Can't see Jax and her together or maybe I just don't like her. There is something unbecoming about her, not sure if the character is supposed to be like that or just the acting is not up to par. No tears when when she saw her kids in the hospital but was teary eyed when Jamma got hurt from the car accident? What was that? Her mind must have been foggy when she made the decision to stay with Jax knowing his lifestyle then halfway towards the marriage she bails out! Where is the loyalty and commitment?
Can somebody recommend another show that is as good as or better than SOA or Breaking Bad? They rock.
