Sons Of Anarchy Tears it Up!
I have not felt this much excitement over a show since, well... Jericho! Sorry the show is not a CBS Show. This is actually a good thing because just from the way FX put out the Age Ratings for the show made me know they realize the risky nature of the show and accept it right up front. This means that they are far more willing to tackle these topics and not let some suit take the show off the air.
I have so much catching up to do though, but it will be a great weekend of viewing. Katey Sagal is simply terrific as Clay's wife and Mother to Jax ( played by Charlie Hunnam). She is what some would call a bitch, but I think its more a momma bear thing. She definitely has what the show asks for as a Biker Momma. And love the car!
Ron Perlman plays Clay, the leader of the SoA and Stepfather to Jax. I have loved him since he played Vincent in Beauty and The Beast. His list of acting accomplishments is extensive and his abilities are huge. He makes a damn fine and believable leader of the SoA. A bit edgy for those of us who do remember him as the romantic Vincent but good.
I will play catch up this weekend as I said, and then will be in a better place to do a recap of the show so far. I will say this, I like the premise and I like that this show is portrayed as realistically as it is, is this topic what main stream Americans would want to see, not sure. What I do know is the topic has a place and makes you see that there are cultures out there we need to see, hear and experience. These guys are out to save a town from drug dealers and big corp heads....... I love that idea big time.
I think this show may warrant a separate blog :-) and you know how I love to make my blogs! Best thing so far besides the topic itself ~ Redwood Original!!! Gotta love the Redwood reference :-)
Remember you can catch up on all the SoA info by going to FX website for the show ~ Sons Of Anarchy and catch the show on FX Wednesday nights at 10 pm!
