For me, the turning point was Season 3 when they went on a vacation to Hawaii. Wait, that was the Brady Bunch. SAMCRO went to Ireland.

Well-deserved IMO considering how nihilistic this show has become. My guess is that it's going to get even worse in the end, because that's how Sutter rolls.

I'm a fan of the show, but it's no longer Emmy worthy. As someone else said, the year in Ireland is where it took a nosedive in quality for me.

Well, I love the show and characters/story, and hate to see the end of this series.


Hopefully they do the ending right...

Its refreshing to see someone buck the trend of negative posts lately. Not that I don't understand the complaints, I've just haven't decided if I agree with them yet. I've just caught up on the show and have yet to see an episode live, which may be why I'm out of step with the consensus. But I have found the show highly addictive and perfect for binge viewing. Part of the appeal for me is the sheer unpredictability of the show, how they aren't afraid to take gambles, so it doesn't bother me that much if they don't always succeed. The other main appeal is the charisma of the supporting cast, in how the roles are written as well as acted, and that hasn't changed from day 1. There were a couple of times during my viewing that I was ready to quit, but in those cases I found I had seriously underestimated the writing, and in the end the show redeemed itself. At its worst, SOA is still a heck of a ride. At its best it can be thought provoking and disturbing. I don't really think there has ever been anything quite like it on tv and it definitely belongs in any discussion of the "golden age" of cable .
