It's a tribute to Sons creator Kurt Sutter (who also portrays the character Otto in several episodes) and his team that they're able to make us care about a bunch of folks most of us would normally cross the street to avoid. The cast, which includes some fine actors from the United Kingdom (including Hunnam), several veterans from popular shows like Deadwood and Game of Thrones, and guest stars like Hal Holbrook (as Gemma's dad), Drea de Matteo, and even Sonny Barger (a real-life Hell's Angel), is substantial, and the storylines are legion (like many ongoing series, this one may require newcomers to do some quick catching up before getting a handle on what's going on). There's plenty of violence (though it's fairly tame compared to the show's cable counterparts), the music is outstanding (you're not likely to find a song by the great English guitarist-singer-songwriter Richard Thompson featured on any other shows), and the writing, acting, and production values are top-notch all around. Sons of Anarchy has a consistent vibe and attitude that make for very compelling viewing--and with the special features including four scenes from season four, it's clear that there's much more to come. Other bonus material includes commentary for three episodes, deleted scenes, a gag reel, and more. --Sam Graham

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.

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.
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!
