I am not a review writer but I felt compelled to write a review on this show b/c this is the first show in a very long time that forced me to watch the whole season in one day. I am not a biker chick or never wanted a bike so I didn't think I would like it but this show was HIGHLY recommended so I took a chance and boy I wasn't disappointed. The characters, storyline and action are great and I don't feel anything is too farfetched. I hope they continue for seasons to come.

Very rarely do I watch something on tv and continue to think about it days later. This season of SOA had that sort of impact on me.

************************* some may consider the rest a spoiler **************************************

With Jax's son kidnapped and Gemma going to jail we watch as the motorcycle club seems to be falling apart. The season opener started with a huge unforeseen bang. It was unbelievable. I really was in shock the entire episode. Especially, after the ended the second season with the way they did.

I think this show has some serious writers. With the scenarios they come up with and how they bring everything together has me WOWed.

I honestly, watched this entire season in one night. I was up until 5am the other morning just trying to see what happens next. This is one of the best series I've seen. I'll be thinking of this show for a long time.

Seasons 1 and 2 were brilliant and beautiful. Nearly epic storylines of love, greed, manipulation, crime, murder, revenge, betrayal and redemption. Three-dimensional characters, flawed but sympathetic. At the end of each episode, you talk yourself into watching just one more.

But it's hard getting through season 3. The plots are convoluted. People's behavior doesn't make sense. Storylines that should have been wrapped up in a couple episodes are dragged out for the entire season. Lots of things happen, each more ridiculous than the last, and it gets a bit hard to care about some of the storylines. After every episode, I'd think "maybe the next one will be good." But most weren't.

Now, this is still Sons of Anarchy. There are some signs of high quality here. The main actors are still very good. Some of the story lines are good and make you care. But they are few and far between, literally. Getting through Season 3 is a real chore. You do it because you care about these characters and want to know what happens to them. But be warned, season 3 is a bit of a confusing mess, and not up to the high standards set by seasons 1 and 2.

The twists and turns of this season grew the world of Charming, CA by ten-fold. Completely satisfying. I've been a fan since running across mention of the show pre-Season 1. Between Kurt Sutter's raw, rambling, passionate blog and the brilliant writing, directing and acting on this show each week you have a perfect blend of entertainment rarely seen. The characters are real and Shakespearean, the plot original and often completely unexpected, and like every great love, you are left wanting more.

And thank you Amazon for partnering to provide a great alternative to cable/satellite tv. I almost resubscribed just to watch Sons this season (there was no way I was waiting 30 days for Hulu and no way I was going without!) I am thrilled to have found the on-demand video.

Now for the painful wait for Season 4!

This season had it's moments but overall, it was by far my least favorite. Thankfully, Sutter came back very strong with Season 4, which I find is the best yet. The Ireland deal was really drug out for too long. It wasn't hard to see why this season wasn't nominated for anything. It's still one of the best on T.V. so it's easy to forgive this glitch.

This show is simply amazing. But words can't really do it justice. The second season was the best T.V. I have ever watched, it had me smiling, crying, and wanting to go play bad ass all at the same time. This third season is not quite as suspenseful as the second, it comes very close however and still deserves five stars in my book. The show is just as good as the shield, and maybe better depending on how long it lasts.

As for Amazons T.V. on demand freezing and reloading, I have experienced no such problems. I would imagine it is dependent on the quality of your internet connection.

Sutter crafted this one perfectly. I really thought Jax was gonna fold for minute. Jimmy O took his fate like a soldier, unlike Stahl, the sniveling begging weasel that she is (was). Opie is centered again. Hells Angels president Sonny Barger cameo as "Lenny the pimp"? just brilliant.

I'm so glad the quality of this show continues into the third season. It's well written and well acted, with an innate respect for the audience (I never feel that the writers or actors are talking down to me, or are doing anything purely for ratings) - everything that happens feels like it's plausible and it's always as entertaining as can be. Fantastic!

One of the best shows that is out there. I am really looking forward to the next season. Thank you Kurt Sutter for bringing us this amazing show in the times of ridiculously idiotic television programing. Every episode is equally as good as the next, and they are all amazing. Thank you for ending this season the way you did.

I hate to say this, but the audio quality of any Amazon Instant video is terrible. It's comparable to a low-quality .wav file.

The video looks pretty good, though. Either SD or HD videos from Amazon.com looks great.

Sso, I give SOA five stars for content, but if I was reviewing the downloadable product itself, I'd give it nothing or less than nothing if that was possible.

If you must own this, get the DVD or Blu-Ray but avoid the Amazon Instant.

*I should note that I purchased the entire season and not just one episode. Clearly I got my review wrong, but three episodes in and the audio quality was terrible.*
