Charlie Hunnam has grown into the character of Jax and made him more believable and human/likeable. I know I got a few dings from Jax worshippers (all women) in my review for Season 1, but I found him and his relationship with Maggie Siff's character to be the weakest aspects. With the developments in Season 2, all my doubts are dispelled and there are tremendous amounts of growth in the storyline and the town of Charming's denizens. Great guest stars include: Tom Arnold; Adam Arkin; Titus Welliver; Henry Rollins; Mitch Pileggi; and, of course, Ally Walker of "Profiler" fame.
My only issue is that there isn't more interaction between SAMCRO members and the townspeople. Supposedly, these guys are generally well-liked by Charming residents, but I'd like to see evidence of that.
The strongest part of the show (aside from some truly stellar acting) is definitely the writing. Each character is developed with their own unique traits and personal issues, all of which contribute equally to the overall story. With such a focus on the characters and their personal conflicts, you would think it would lead to an overload of tedious subplots and issues with storytelling coherance. The result is the exact opposite. Despite having a fair share of subplots, none of them feel tacked on or forced and they all contribute to the story as a whole, making for some of the most intricate, compelling and multi-layered plotting to ever hit TV.
I'm short on time, so I'll have to wrap this up, but just know that if you own a TV, you should be watching this show. It's smart, complex, dramatic, and full of edge of your seat intensity you won't want to miss. Kudos to FX on making one of the most intriguing, mature, and well thought out programs to hit the tube in years.
If you are seeking a new series to add to your idea of THE BEST movie/tv series collection - Sons of Anarchy is it. I'm not trying to sell you anything as I don't get diddly squat - I'm just telling you that if you haven't got into this series yet - DO IT!
This show is not just about a bad ass biker gang - it's an epic machiavellian saga w/ shakesperean type characters wrapped in a modern day setting.
The special features are a great insight into the directors head - so don't think your getting duped on the extra stuff!
Get it - get the series - you won't regret the purchase!
The Sons of Anarchy are a motorcycle club (what most would consider bikers), officially known as SAMCRO (Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, Redwood Original). This group is the original band, the beginning of the club, though most have passed away. Originally started with 9 members, the club has expanded and as we've learned in season two is even international. Comparisons to the Hells Angels would be expected, but knowing their reputation for dealing in drugs and more the link isn't really there.
The Sons deal mostly in illegal weapons and small time extortion, tending to protect the small town of Charming, CA that they live in rather than do it harm. They keep out drug dealers and meth heads, keeping the streets safe even if they do use a bit of violence to do so. The story never turns lose of the fact that these are dangerous men who do dangerous and illegal things and yet you find yourself rooting for them. Perhaps it's the biker mystique that has long been associated with freedom and a life without care. But those two things aren't found with the Sons as they have as many problems as anyone.
As I said, I never saw season one, but from what I gathered, club president Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman) made the decision to take out a member named Opie and by mistake that member's wife was killed.Read more ›
