    Paying close attention to SOA's array of outlaws makes the series an even more richly detailed portrait of self-righteous villainy.

    This series has become progressively stupider every year it's been on. It's literally gotten to the point where it no longer matters what ridiculous, unbelievably impossible situation the characters have gotten themselves into. If one of them is arrested for murder, discovers they have cancer, and has their head bitten off by Godzilla in the first ten minutes of the episode, you can rest assured that all of their problems will have magically resolved themselves by the last ten minutes.

    The season five premiere of SOA was, to say the least, AMAZING. The tension was so thick you could cut it with a knife. This promises to be the best season to date. Full Review »

    Son's of Anarchy has strayed from narrative substance and rich character development it built over the first 3 seasons. The characters are almost impossible to identify with, as the level of self-destructive tenancies leave the viewer to believe SAMCRO as the most amateur of criminal organisations. Bring back intelligent character driven resolution instead of the reactionary lowest common denominators the viewers are no subjected to. Respect for your viewers will keep them riding with SOA a little bit longer; however at this pace, this season will be my last. Full Review »
