The series revolves around a gang of motorcycle riding outlaws who operate out of the fictional town of Charming, California, a quiet venue in close proximity to Oakland. Their chapter is known as SAMCRO for The Sons of Anarchy Mortorcycle Club, Redwood Original. The central character is Jackson "Jax" Teller (Charlie Hunnam), the club's vice-president, who is finds his heart split between his ex-wife Wendy (Drea de Matteo) who has just given birth to his son, and his high-school sweetheart, Tara (Maggie Siff) a doctor who has just returned to town to work in the local hospital. The cast runs deep with amazing personalities including Ron Perlman, playing the club's president Clay Morrow, Katy Segal (who is also Kurt Sutter's real-life wife) playing Gemma Teller Morrow, Clay's wife and Jax's mom, Kim Coates as Tig Trager, the club's ruthless seargeant-at-arms, and Mitch Pilleggi as Ernest Darby, the boss of a rival gang called the Nords.
A no-holds barred storytelling approach similar to The Wire, The Sopranos and The Shield is immediately noticeable in the series pilot. The gory details are laid bare, with graphic illustrations exhibited of the extent to which the gang is willing to go to protect the club, their business and their families. The clubhouse is located in Clay's auto garage, but the gang's main source of income is running guns to the big city gangs in the East Bay, San Francisco region.Read more ›
The story line in season one of this show is very interesting. A story! What a concept!
I am purchasing other seasons tonight. I watched for a sale when a kid at a local dept store told me to just go to Amazon and purchase it. Much less expensive on Amazon and we got it in 3 days I think. We live north of Toronto, ON. Canada shipping is usually worse than a snail pace. Amazon has something figured out. I know where I am doing my Christmas shopping:)
I just finished re-watching Season 1 which made more sense to me this time - all the relationships, business deals, and gang rivalries. The DVD set is worth getting for the Special Features - the bikes, the ink, the set, etc. This is a unique show that will be a classic!
While this premise is simple, Sons of Anarchy is actually quite complex. We follow the Sons in their often violent criminal activities, rivalries with other gangs and confrontations with the law. There are also domestic dramas -- troubles with women -- their "old ladies" The cast is universally good. Standouts are Katie Sagal (Mrs. Kurt Sutter) as Gemma, the psychologically manipulative mother and Kim Coates as Tig, the gang's psychopathic sargeant of arms.
This excellent show is not broadcast in Canada and I discovered it on blu ray at my local rental place. I found the show so compelling that I purchased it and spend the entire weekend watching it. I just could not stop, it is that compelling. Unfortunately, it has been overlooked by the awards people but it is as good as any show on television. I highly recommend it.
