    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.

    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. Expand

    Yet another show that has absolutely no basis in reality whatsoever, a bad soap opera for men. It would be difficult to find a more dislikeable group of sociopaths. Utter rubbish

    Sons may be as busy as it is brutal, but at least its heartlessness is in the right place.

    Kurt Sutter's epic tale of an outlaw California motorcycle club launches its fifth season Tuesday with the same visceral intensity that stamped season four.

    The second season revealed artistic ambition, reaching for a certain amount of depth in characterization and storytelling. Assessed on that level, the last two seasons have fallen far short of the mark and it seems season five will only repeat the pattern.
