'Sons of Anarchy' on FX HD - Page 41

post #1201 of 1214
You Tube, punch in 24 Damn it compilation... First one up, almost 6 minutes of "Damn It's" [Smiley Face]... BTW, it is estimated Jack killed 247 people over 8 seasons of 24.. Add "We're running out of time"... Sorry to hijack the thread...

Few years ago I watched the first three seasons of the show and was burned out after the third season. Mostly due to really hating the Belfast season. Over the past two weeks I watched the most recent 3 seasons and enjoyed a lot of it, but also found I hated a lot of it. The show has basically become a murder-a-thon each week, which I hated, but what kept me watching were the relationships and a lot of the humor. Killing off Opie and Tara essentially killed off the heart and soul of the show for me. I'm so incredibly sick of Gemma, which is obviously a problem since as others pointed out, it appears to be a vehicle to showcase her. The way this most recent season ended has soured me again almost as much as the Belfast season did, but I guess I'll tune in next season just to see how it ends. It's such an odd show - I love it almost as much as I hate it.

I know. I kept watching although I don't really like ANY of the characters as people. Not sure I can recall another show I've watched like that.

For me it was Seinfeld. Awful people, but a great show.

There's pretty much no one on this show to like anymore, they're all lying murderers or accomplices. Sutter seems to like nihilistic endings and that's what we're going to get this year I think. I'll be glad to see it end no matter what.

I dunno I like Tig. Just because he's the best actor on this show.

I think a lot of SoA's cast members are strong actors. I have come to admire Charlie Hunnam's talent and there is nobody better than Katey Sagal, Mark Boone Junior isn't chopped liver either. And it seems to me that the addition of Jimmy Smits as Nero strengthened the show.

Part of my fascination with Sons of Anarchy is that watching it is, to me, akin to being an eyewitness to a train wreck. As horrific as it is, I can't take my eyes away. smile.gif

I agree with you that the cast is very good. Chibs was in Gladiator and was excellent, I really like Bobby and Opie. You love to hate Clay which shows that he did a great job. I really like this show, and felt horrible when Gemma offed Tara.

I think they're all great actors. I've been a fan of Dayton Callie's since Deadwood. For me the problem with the show is the writing. I never once believed Tara's disillusionment with her marriage. One minute she's in love and getting married, the next she wants to be in WITSEC. I agree that it's hard to turn away from the show. My problem in the most recent season is that it was also hard to watch. I liked Smits' character, but they even turned him into a scumbag of sorts. Regardless, it only has one more season, so I'll stick around for it.

I bought Tara's conflict. On one hand she wants to be supportive of her husband but realizes his actions are putting both her and their children in danger. This sets up a horrible conflict between supporting her husband and protecting her children. I thought all of that was handled pretty well. Smits has shown us Nero's dark side but then everybody in SoA is to some extent a scumbag. The only differentiating factor seems to be each character's level of scumbaginess.

Tara's change of heart really took place over a period of time .. beginning even before the kidnapping incident where her hand was smashed ..

And as she lay in the hospital, saying she now has “no way out” of the life she’s chosen, that she will “never save another life” ...

Sometimes, and I know many will disagree with this, I think Juice is the biggest scumbag of them all ..

That's another issue I had. Juice giving up the club because they might find out his dad is black? That was just stupid. Made even dumber by his attempts to cover it up.Maybe I'd find a lot of this more tolerable if I had watched it as it aired instead of seeing them all back-to-back.

I'm in the process of watching the series-I'm almost 1/2 thru S5. I shouldn't even be reading this thread for fear of spoilers, much less posting. But I too was confused by Juice's reaction to his father being black. It seemed to come out of nowhere..
