Review this tv show
EloiP.Sep 9, 2009Clearly the best show on television right now. (Because The Wire and Homicide are now gone.) It's the best reason to sit down, turn off the phone, and just get lost in the mayhem. Nobody messes with SAMCRO!
Aug 8, 2010Season two of SAMCRO started of with a bang (unlike anything I've ever seen on a serialized drama) and just kept delivering week after week. Katy Segal is a force of nature. I'm not sure what's holding people back from this show, but it's currently one of the 2 or 3 best things on TV (with Mad Men & Fringe, I'd say). If you're male and not watching this show, you're missing the boat.
BradCOct 27, 2009Best TV series I have ever watched. i thought The Wire could never be beaten but I was wrong.
nicolet.Sep 10, 2009I love this show!!! I have been hooked since season 1, episode 1! Katy Segal makes the show what it is!
KeithS.Sep 10, 2009Truly a page out of the Biker handbook ! A+ for the Shield,never thought we would EVER, be able to reach the peaks that the Shield did. Well I'm happy to say as a Biker, we reached the SUMMIT ! A++ your friend and follower "SHERM-DAWG"
MichelleSSep 9, 2009The second season opener was great. The energy is high and love the fact that Jax is stepping out of his shell. The involvement of the white supremists is a fresh addition to other stereotype criminal enties (Mayans & OneNiners).
MissyJNov 1, 2009I love the show! The show is definitely not lacking excitement. I love the fact the women are just as tough as the men.
tomwNov 1, 2009this is the only series on tv that I look for on a regular basis. it's so good it can't be missed.
philipwOct 8, 2009One of the really good edgy, well written, character driven shows on cable.
SimonLSep 9, 2009Truly excellent writing, direction, acting and cinematography. This is going to be an amazing season.
boboNov 23, 2009One of the three best shows on television (along with Mad Men and 24)
ErnieMOct 14, 2009Captivating writing where all the characters are interesting and the storytelling riveting. I hate stoies where everything is black andwhite. Gray is what real life is about.
Sep 4, 2010The first season of SOA was pretty good, but had some problems such as some rough spots in the dialogue and an occasionally immature sense of humor. Season two gets rid of these problems while building tremendously on the first seasons strengths and adding some neat twists. The show now feels a lot more cohesive as all of its characters are now well developed and the relationships between them add substantially to the season's ever-twisting, but never convoluted plot line.… Expand
Oct 15, 2010This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I'll admit, i was on the fence with season 1. Sure, it was a pretty cool show, but some bits just didn't work for me.
Then came season 2
From the first ep, you can tell this season will be chock full with moments that will change the show, what with Gemma's rape, the ongoing rift between Jax and Clay (including their big fight in prison, yes, they go to prison) and a few murders here and there, it delivers much more than season 1 did.
If you were on the fence like me for the first season, trust me, season 2 will make you love this show in all its testosterone-filled awesomeness. And season 3 looks to be even better, as this season ends with IRA member stealing Jaxs baby boy
Bring it on!… Expand
Aug 1, 2013Sons of Anarchy’s first season took a few episodes to find its rhythm but, following its enthralling finale, this second season hits the ground running from the opening episode.
Plenty of credit for this must be given to the writers. The few minor flaws that held back the first season, particularly in its early episodes, have been well and truly put to bed as they brilliantly capture ththe current plight of SAMCRO. Of course good writing itself is not enough and fortunately the entire cast deliver performances to match. As a result even those characters that at first felt a little one note, such as Police Chief Unser, gradually unveil their hidden depths making for superb drama that builds throughout the thirteen episodes to a satisfying finale.
Can’t wait to see what Season 3 will bring.… Expand
Dec 16, 2012this show contains lots of drama with very well drawn out characters that you care about. It is also very violent. this next part includes mega spoilers Season 1 ended with a huge bang and left us begging to know what happens next. Lucky for me im only getting into the show and its already on its 5th season so i don't have to deal with the nagging anticipation i can just pop season 2 in and see what happens. Damn they
did not hold nothing back, season 1 ended with a bang and season 2
started off the same way and doesn't hold anything back. I couldn't
believe they raped Gemma! that was crazy and i thought it was kind of
funny that at the beginning of every episode when they say "previously
on sons of anarchy" we have to sit through her rape every time. Kind of
funny in a sick king of way. This season introduced and new gang in
town as well and they were relentless in their attack on the sons.
Meanwhile the sons are breaking down from within and the whole time i
kept wondering how the hell they were going to get through this and who
would survive. In the end its the rape that brings everyone together
and finally everyones secrets get out and they are all one big happy
family until the end of the season once again leaves us not knowing
where the club will go next. This season upped the ante and through so
many more curve balls that the characters have grown even more and its
nerve racking to see them get thrown into all these crazy situations. I
like how Jax's old lady has changed quite a bit by the end of this
season, i did not like her at all in season 1 but she has now started
to get a bit better, shes still got some work to do but for now shes at
least not annoying the hell outta me. You know im glad they got some of
the enemies and it angers me that some got away but just the fact that
this movie brings out so many emotions is a huge achievement for
everyone involved. One weird little thing that i've noticed about this
show now though is that whenever a character who doesn't normally get a
lot of attention is focused on at the beginning of an episode it usually
means that something bad is going to happen. For example it might have
been season 1 but the junky that worked at the shop...one episode it
showed him at the beginning with his son and then later in the episode
he nearly gets killed, same happens with the end of season 2 when they
are talking about patching in prospect and then he dies at the end of
the episode(which totally sucks by the way), its kind of a cheap way of them making us care more about
that character before something dramatic happens to them. Not a big
deal just kind of obvious and i watch for it now. All in all though
season 2 steps up the intensity and once again i look forward to
further seasons to come.… Expand
Oct 31, 2012One of my personal favorite seasons of television and gave me reasons to believe this series was going to be awesome. Ever since this season though, the show gets increasingly unrealistic and just down right ridiculous at times with absolutely no consequences to anyone actions. This season was far and away their best, with a great performance out of Peg Bundy AkA Gemma, the clubs Den Mother. Also great are Henry Rollins and most of the SAMCRO group. The writing is tight, the surprises are all there, the action is well filmed, and the characters are not one dimensional. Im not sure what happened to the show, I know other writers have gone on to other shows such as walking dead. Who ever came up with this season needs to get back into the writing crew of this show.… Expand
Morrow is either a dinosaur on the way out or the rock-solid leader the club needs in treacherous times. It's to the show's credit that both descriptions have a certain amount of validity, and I found myself alternately applauding Jax's newfound boldness and regretting his youthful heedlessness.
