TV-Series Review Sons Of Anarchy: Complete Seasons 1-7

TV-Series Review - Sons Of Anarchy: Complete Seasons 1-7

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★

The writer of the Shield and the producer of the Sopranos bring you the most ruthless adrenaline-packed new drama of 2009. With over 40 minutes of unaired scenes, the DVD takes you even deeper in the unexplored world of this outlaw Californian Motorcycle Club as its members struggle to balance family life and weapon-trafficking business.

Sons of Anarchy is very well-made, well-written, and extremely well-acted FICTION. Though engaging and entertaining, it won't offer any insights into a real motorcycle club. Kurt Sutter's speculations and story threads have woven a persuasive, enthralling TV show. Let's keep all this in perspective: excellent entertainment draws the viewer in, makes them feel as if they know these characters, and makes viewers envy and wish to be part of such a story. But at the end of the day (and each episode), it's TV at its finest, and not a statement on real life.

Some other reviewer mentioned "for people who don't know any 1%-ers," but I would argue that those of us on the outside will never know anything about 1%-ers, because Motorcycle Clubs are secret societies, like the Masons. They fiercely guard those memberships; thus the need for prospects. Even if you happen to be a family member of a patch-holder, you won't know anything more about the club than any average citizen. They do not and will not share club details with an outsider. Any no 'old lady,' even one of a club president, could or would ever wield the kind of power and sway that Gemma does. Women are regarded as p*ssy, and that is all. Katey Sagal adds another dimension to the story threads through Gemma, but it's an entertaining and compelling farce.

The actors in this entire series bring humility, reason, and understanding to a subculture of folks that just aren't that nice or interesting in real life. Remember that they call themselves 'outlaws' for a reason. They're an unknown quotient, so it's easy to speculate about them and give them the benefit of the doubt. This makes for outstanding entertainment, done by fabulous actors in realistic settings. Keep all of this in perspective: you can envy them, buy a Harley, and ride on the weekends, but leave it at that. They're the 1% that you wouldn't want to join, even if you could. Go read the book, "Three Can Keep a Secret if Two Are Dead," if you disagree.
Magnificent action drama that follows the adventures of Jax Teller, a modern-day Achilles who rides a Harley and helps his Uncle Clay run an outlaw biker gang, the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club (Redwood Original.)
The shocking thing about the show is that although there's sex, violence, and gun play galore, the tone is closer to GAME OF THRONES than THE SOPRANOS. Golden-haired Jax is as tough as they come, and when it comes to brawling with knife, pool cure or bare fists he's always ready. Yet Jax is also a visionary, philosopher and dreamer, and as the first season progresses it becomes more and more clear that he is beginning to question the outlaw life and in particular his Uncle Clay's corrupt and cynical tendency to use the gang for criminal gain. Will Jax challenge his uncle like Hamlet, and if so, will he triumph or fall?
Such a great series. I love that I could buy the entire series all together. The price was very reasonable. I love that this series did not glorify the behavior of those that were in this motorcycle group. The characters were all complex. You could see good and bad in all of them. You could hate and love them at the same time. This is not a series for young ones at all.
