Sons of Anarchy - television series

I highly recommend Sons of Anarchy to u guys.

Television drama relating to the motorcycle clubs like the Hells Angel...instead they call themselves Sons of Anarchy.

Based on the first 2 seasons, it's actually a pretty weak show.

I'm surprised with the premise of Biker Gangs and with a cast of: Ron Pearlman, Charlie Hunnam, Tommy Flanagan, Kim Coates et al, not a lot of bad ass shit happens at all. It's even more hurting because out of the entire cast and story, the biggest bad ass of the show is actually nothing but a "suit" [Zobel].

Zobel isn't the biggest bad ass of the show. Tara is.

The story of SOA is tremendously entertaining. With the end of The Wire and The Shield, I'm left with SOA, which works just fine for me.

I agree, entertainment wise this show is right on. When I was a kid I spent a lot of time inside a clubhouse of a Motorcycle club and the way it's portrayed in the show really is not that different then I remember them being in the mid 80's. As a kid I never witnessed any of the criminal activities. All the gang war stuff, skinhead shit and what not is way over the top but that is what creates the entertainment value in this show if they didn't do that it would be quite boring.

Take it for what it is, it's a good show entertainment wise but as it's gone on I think it's strayed a bit from what it made it so enjoyable in season 1 to a bit more crazy and wild in season 2. It's done sort of what prison break did but I still enjoy watching it.

What did you find weak about it? Not enough action? Too emo?

I thought it balances personal life and gangster life evenly. I also liked how it's somewhat kinda unpredictable.

That's exactly it. I was kinda disappointed that episode after episode Zobel kept getting the best of them over and over again. I understand what attracts people to the show, but eventually the novelty of leather, bikes, tough looks wears off when not much is happening. So far, unless things turn out differently, SOA seems to be a toothless Biker Gang.

You know it's bad when Entourage's Ari Gold has more intensity in that 1 character than the entirety of that show. I wish SOA could be a little bit more adventurous in their writing and explore boundaries of recklessness. At least that's what I was expecting out of it. At least, that's what I thought the premise of the show was supposed to be; not a male version of a soap opera.

I don't agree.

Examples:
Spoiler!
.

I don't know about you. I found all the above to be well written, portayed, and executed. This isn't some BS CSI crap. Your Ari Gold joke, although funny in your mind, is downright disrespectful to the writers and actors of SOA.

You're welcome to your opinion of course. I think you're more than a bit off though.

edit: their leather, bikes, and tough looks didn't help them stop any of what I mentioned above from happening. In fact, it didn't do much to reconcile the events either.

I'm a Shield fan and I really missed Lem when he was gone. It was totally big for me to see the guy in S2 of SOA, and now it seems he's going to be more of a prominent character in S3.

Stahl is pretty good looking. Must be the pant suits and gun she carries.

I guess Hale is done for. I was looking forward to seeing how he would run Charming as the Chief of Police.

BTW, my new wallpaper:

Anyone notice Stephen King was in the last episode?? It didnt clue in until just now, his role was pretty funny considering what type of Novels he writes.

It's on FX.

BTW, did you actually go out of your way to type out not 1, but 5 question marks? I think only girls do that...

I don't think it was a SAMCRO tattoo, it was just an MC tattoo in general. SAMCRO would recognize her if she used to be affiliated with them.
