"Let freedom ride"



Film Synopsis:

From the creative mind of Kurt Sutter (“The Shield”), the adrenalized drama centers on a notorious outlaw motorcycle club intent on protecting their sheltered small town against encroaching drug dealers, corporate developers, and overzealous law officers. The club is equally determined to protect their ruthless and illegally thriving arms business. Charlie Hunnam stars as Jackson ‘Jax’ Teller, a man whose love for the brotherhood is tested by his growing apprehension for its lawlessness. Katey Sagal stars as Gemma Teller Morrow, Jax’s force-of-nature mother, who along with Ron Perlman as Clarence ‘Clay’ Morrow, Jax’s stepfather and MC president, have their own darker vision for the club.




My Take:

attachment.php?attachmentid=184417&d=1283174969

An FX original TV series, Sons of Anarchy, is an adrenalized drama with darkly comedic undertones that explores a notorious outlaw motorcycle club’s (Son of Anarchy or SAMCRO) desire to protect its livelihood while ensuring that their simple, sheltered town of Charming, California remains, just that, Charming. The MC must confront threats from drug dealers, corporate developers and overzealous law enforcement officers. Behind the MC’s familial lifestyle and legally thriving automotive shop is a ruthless and illegally thriving arms business. Their outlaw style subculture manages the seduction of money, power, and the daily threat of bloodshed.

For those not familiar with show here are some of my comments from my review of Season One:

The show revolves around a California motorcycle club called the Sons of Anarchy. The club is lead by Clay (Perlman) and is run by a strict code of ethics and conduct that is pretty much what you’d expect from bikers. The club maintains a hierarchy that includes various positions such as vice president, sergeant at arms, treasurer and runs all the way down to the low man who is referred to as the “prospect”. Jackson “Jax” Teller (Hunnam) is second in command as well as a second generation member and is primarily the show’s central character.

His father was one of the clubs founders but he died from injuries sustained after being hit by a tractor trailer when Jax was a boy. His mother Gemma (Sagal) is now Clay’s “old lady” and keeps a watchful eye over Jax while maintaining a fair amount of influence over both men. Each member of the club brings an important element to its purpose. The purpose is for the club to thrive through various means which unfortunately place it in direct contravention of state, local, and federal laws. Jax has no qualms about the club’s purpose or seeing it through. He is intelligent and forward thinking (most of the time) and doesn’t always see the need to handle matters in the “traditional” sense. This occasionally puts him at odds with Clay which raises eyebrows among the other members of the club.

Season Two ups the ante as the SAMCRO faces off with a rather nasty group of white supremacists calling themselves The League of American Nationalists, lead by Ethan Zobelle and his lieutenant AJ Weston. Hiding behind a façade of propriety they are looking to make Charming their base of operations for a number of illicit activities which includes the drug trade. This puts them in direct conflict with SAMCRO which is still struggling with the after shocks of Donna’s death and the increasing conflict between Jax and Clay. Gemma sees the handwriting on the wall and continues to try and manage the escalating turmoil which threatens to permanently fracture the club. She and Tara come to an understanding and form a bond of sorts. Tara takes a page out of Gemma’s book when her relationship with Jax/SAMCRO collides with her job at the hospital. Gemma’s resolve and formidability are rocked when she is abducted by members of The League and brutally assaulted in order to send message to SAMCRO. Later this event will be quite significant but not in the way intended by The League.

SAMCRO comes to learn that Ethan Zobelle has been secretly dealing with a non-white MC in order to further his own agenda a fact they use as a means to an end. ATF Agent Stahl continues to step on the toes of local law officials in an attempt to get at SAMCRO. Her impertinence leads to a chain of events that culminate in a jaw dropping series finale. This season is the best yet and ramps up the action, the interpersonal drama, and shock value as SAMCRO goes headlong into contention both internal and external that will result in defining violence/loss of life, the dissolution of lifelong friendships, and the crossing of boundaries that breach a foresworn code of ethics.

After reviewing season one of Sons of Anarchy I was hooked. Let’s be honest these are not law abiding citizens and in fact in many instances they prove to be ruthless criminals. While they are depicted this way they are also hold family and personal interests in high regard, and have a strong support system which extends beyond the boundaries of what one might consider when thinking of image of a biker (sorry, you will have to watch and see for yourself). I love the depth of these characters and the grounded manner in which they go about their business. They are well written which clearly establishes their connection and reinforces their strength while enhancing their likeability. Yes they are bad but looking beyond that they live within a definitive and structured subculture where without rules survival would be impossible.

Creator/writer Kurt Sutter did his home work and has come up with a superb balance of good and bad that allows acceptance and forgiveness as we bond with and ultimately root for them. The cast (both regulars and guests) is perfectly placed and primarily consists of seasoned actors with pedigrees that make them well suited to their characters. Season two’s 13 episodes are spread over three BD-50 Blu-ray discs with the bulk of the bonus features contained on disc three. Season Two offers plenty of ass kicking, gunplay, inner conflict, various twists and a few surprises I didn’t see coming. As with season one no stone goes unturned as the show builds to a thrilling and cliff hanging climax that left me hankering for more of this character driven, well written, and compelling TV drama.

We didn’t miss a single episode and are eagerly awaiting the debut of season three on September 7th.


Parental Guide:

This show contains strong violence, thematic material and language that would not be suitable for younger viewers.

Sons of Anarchy Season Two comes to Blu-ray from 20th Century Fox featuring 1080p AVC encoded video that has an average bitrate of 21 Mbps and lossless DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound that has an average bitrate of 4.3 mbps.

Season Two of Sons of Anarchy positively translates to video on Blu-ray Disc and features excellent high definition quality that boasts warm, inviting colors with deeply saturated primaries and vivid hues. Fleshtones are naturally delineated with warm tonal highlights and discernible complexional variety among the cast. Detail is abundant as images look crisp with clearly resolvable texture, and dimensionality that on occasion offer a near infinite visual perspective. Blacks are rich with excellent dynamic range and appreciable gradational stages. Contrast is strong which provides plenty of pop to colors and whites without overemphasis or loss of detail. The video has a punchy, pleasing, and pristine quality that looks great throughout.

The DTS-HD MA soundtrack features crystal clear dialogue, robust dynamics and an enriching surround sound mix. I was impressed with its use of spacial dimension and directional cues to create a realistic and occasionally immersive sound field. This worked hand in hand with shows excellent music score, and action based sequences to build suspense/tension and drive its thematic elements. As with season one this appears to be a faithful and high quality audio/video presentation that looks and sounds great on Blu-ray from Fox.




Bonus Features:


  • Disc 1:

  • Audio commentary by Kurt Sutter, Ron Perlman, Adam Arkin, Guy Ferland on episode “Albification”

  • (HD) 6 deleted scenes
  • Disc 2:


  • Audio commentary by Kurt Sutter, Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman, Katey Sagal, Maggie Siff, Paris Barclay, Dave Erickson on episode “Balm”

Final Thoughts:

Sons of Anarchy is a compelling TV drama that features strong, well written characters who are genuinely brought to life by the show’s multi-talented cast. Creator Kurt Sutter has done an excellent job with the show’s continuing contemporary storyline which keeps interest high as it thoroughly engages with ample amounts of action, drama, and suspense. I look forward to September 7th when season three kicks off. The series comes to high definition from 20th Century Fox Blu-ray in a well rounded package that not only looks and sounds great but includes bonus supplements that offer fans an entertaining inside perspective on the as told by the cast and crew. If you are a fan this set is worth adding to your collection. If you haven’t seen Sons of Anarchy I highly recommend you check it out.

Wow Ralph. I don't remember you ever giving something a perfect 5 before. Next thing you know, you'll be riding on two wheels too.

I really liked the first season and am looking forward to the second even more now, disappointed as I may be in the picture above indicating they're still riding those prissy sportsters pimped out to look more like a sport bike - which no hardcore biker, mush less an outlaw biker, would ever do. In fact, just parking a sport bike at some bars will get it torched. I've known a few former outlaw bikers. And most wouldn't even ride a sportster, despite it being made by Harley - especially not one built later than the mid 70's. But, I guess they're better on the shows budget.

As much as I like the show Chad you won't soon find me riding on anything motorized that has less than four wheels.

I may have to invest in some time in watching this show considering it has got excellent reviews for both seasons so far.

I saw a few episodes of the first season and enjoyed them. Mostly it reminded me of The Sopranos except set in a different subculture. The story lines and dialog are well written, and Perlman and Sagal give some great performances (once you get past Perlman not speaking French and Sagal not being animated with one eye).
SoA joins the ranks of The Wire and Breaking Bad for shows I should be watching, but haven't been able to yet.

SOA is very well done with more then a hint of accuracy for the most part, I thoroughly enjoy it and never miss an episode.

Most of the bikes are tricked Dynas except for Bobby's rigid bobber with the S&S motor, as an old guy 65yrs and still counting, its old school look is what I like the best.

So they did upgrade the bikes for the second season? I saw a Road King or two (usually parked), but don't remember any Bobber's in the first season, riden by the principals anyway. I don't remember any Dynas either; even Perlman looked to be riding the same model Sportster as the younger members, and not one of the newer models, which look more like Dynas, but the older, top-heavy, unbalanced, 80's or 90's style, based on the tall, narrow profile and the square tank.

The show is exceptionally well done. Except for one thing: Their portrayal of "Real Bikers" is downright silly. Having grown up around Hell's Angels, I think I am qualified in making that statement.

But if you can take it for what it is, a satirical drama - bordering on a farcical "Mockumentary" (ala Spinal Tap), then I guess it is good entertainment.

I've got some stuff.

Care to elaborate? I've known a few (retired outlaws you might say) and have briefly met others while riding myself (mostly former Outlaws, rather than former Angels), but probably not as many as Ralph may have arrested - or so I would imagine, if the outlaw biker subculture is as prevalent in NY as it is in NC. I don't recall anything about this show being "silly", though maybe my memory is overly generous. If you meant to imply that the series paints the outlaw biker culture in a much more sophisticated, better organized, and far nobler light than it deserves (not to mention everyone being better groomed), I would probably agree. But, compared to Wild Hogs or even the classic, The Wild One, this show spews authenticity in everything but some of the bikes they ride, without adhering too strictly to the cliche stereotypes of Hell Ride or even Easy Rider - not to imply the later lacked authenticity for its day, but it hardly reflects any of the dominate biker cultures or subcultures in modern times. Then again, I've never met a biker who didn't like Harley Davidson and the Marleboro Man, as cheesy as that film is.

I would, season one is great and there is enough carry over that helps to have seen S1.

I've always likened this series as the Sapranos on bikes, just my opinion.

Definitely recommend watching Season One first. It's every bit as good, and establishes the characters and relationships for you.

I rented season 1 Blu-ray from BB. I can't wait to start watching this. I figure that since Dexter and True Blood (2 of my favorite shows now) both got high scores and I ended up loving both of them that I will probably like Sons of Anarchy at the very least.

Finished season 2 the other day. Aside from the girly sport shields, the abbreviated season on a full season admission price, and the network apparently having so little confidence in the writing that they had to leave the season hanging (I hate shows that stoop to such a cheap and tired ploy), it was everthing I hoped it would be. It was kind of funny: the arms dealer not being able to tell the difference between blank and live ammo, though - not to mention the bikers occasionally wearing their helmets backwards. So, I guess the show is a little silly afterall.

Last 2 episodes were a big let down after being teased so much through the season.
Iv just watched the first episode of season 3 and have to say wow!! what an opener, it hardly seems like the same writers (in a good way).

Watched both seasons. I wrapped up season 2 tonight. The video was awesome. I would like to get clarification on one issue however because I'm not sure if its just me or what, but during the final episode of season 2 when the bikers all got on their motorcycles. During this scene the camera went from left to right as it showed the bikers getting ready to take off from Teller-Morrow and this scene in particular looked extremely blurry. I could not even make out all the letters on their leather jackets due to this particular scene looking smeared. I only noticed it during this scene though. Did anyone else notice this?
