    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.

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.

    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

    Normally I would say that this is a great show but after watching the 4th and some of the 5th season I've realized that not only are the characters not dynamic but it seems the producers could not come up with new material for Clay and some of the other conflicted characters. It seems that they were set on keeping the 'guy you wanna hate' scenario going on through the entire story, butNormally I would say that this is a great show but after watching the 4th and some of the 5th season I've realized that not only are the characters not dynamic but it seems the producers could not come up with new material for Clay and some of the other conflicted characters. It seems that they were set on keeping the 'guy you wanna hate' scenario going on through the entire story, but after a while it gets old seeing the same characters doing the same old things just in different ways. I'm moving on to a different series with more substance. Expand

    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.
