    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.

    An absolutely shocking season premiere. Kurt Sutter does a great job of setting up a villain for each season with a whopper of a first episode. It's going to be great to see Tag on a rampage. That guy's potential for fury seems limitless.

    Continues to be a fantastic show. The plot is just so absorbing it's insane, the acting is really good, and the direction is always top-notch. It is hard to find any faults in the show at all.

    Very strong premiere episode. Very absorbing. Looks like this season could go into some interesting directions. Hopefully not to end in a cheap and tidy way like last season though. Some very cool new characters introduced too. One of them seemingly a little too much like Gus Fring from Breaking Bad though. Not that that's a bad thing exactly.

    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.
