After seeing I haven't written about Breaking Bad, I knew Sons of Anarchy was lacking from my blog as well. When this show first came out, I was the biggest fan of the show. I would talk to anyone who would listen about it. Trust me, I am not the normal demographic for the show. I loved the show because I love sub-culture, I find the hierarchy and customs fascinating. Another thing I loved was the retelling of Hamlet in a modern day motorcycle club (MC). I enjoyed seeing the reinterpretation of one of my favorite plays.
I would say last season was slow, but I feel that Kurt Sutter was building the background to take the story where it needed to go. This season has been exciting, Opie's death was heart breaking. (I wonder if Ryan Hurst got to cut his hair?) Jax has also significantly changed this season, he has more purpose than before. Gemma is even more off the rails. I loved the random Joel McHale appearance.
I have a feeling Joel McHale really enjoyed this short character run. Clay on the other hand, I hope Ron Perelman enjoys playing such a mastermind villain. I thought Unser was going to die at the hands of Clay. I should have known better than that. Jax knows better though.
Meanwhile, at the club house, Tara shows up with the boys ready to go up to a cabin for a respite. I loved the juxtaposition of the swing set in front of a clubhouse. You could tell something was going to happen to the boys especially after what Gemma has been doing to herself.
The writers are really going for blood this season, and it is driving the plot. I cannot wait to see next week's episode and the fall out from it.
