when it premieres next week? ...doubt it...
Sept. 8, 2009, 3:48 p.m. CST
It was a decently produced show, but most of the characters are just so damn unlikeable. Most of them are racist, misogynistic POS, and one of them is even a necrophiliac. Hell, the season finale involved them killing a mother of two accidentally while trying to kill one of their own members.
Sept. 8, 2009, 3:55 p.m. CST
I love Ron Perlman, but God, there was some cringe worthy stuff with him and Segal last season. And I love Hunnam, but I hope he got the accent together (like a certain detective trying to pull of a Baltimore accent..) It'll be interesting to see what Otto is up to this season.
Sept. 8, 2009, 4:10 p.m. CST
One of my favorite networks. This and It's Always Sunny are 2 of the few shows I'm looking forward to this year. Sunny is the funniest thing going IMHO.
Sept. 8, 2009, 4:13 p.m. CST
I didn't catch all of the the first season, but what I saw was pretty good. I liked the season finale. One scene I couldn't get over was when they took a blow torch to that guys bare back in order to burn off his tattoo. I'm the last guy to get all squirmy, but that scene made me nauseous.
Sept. 8, 2009, 4:16 p.m. CST
Even Denis Leary gave us a blow torch to the leg this past season on Rescue Me. Not as gruesome as on Sons of Anarchy, but FX has a fetish for burnt flesh.

Sprague Grayden got shoooted in the head
Sept. 8, 2009, 4:32 p.m. CST
To see Rollins on the show. I thought last season was a great intro into a seedy world ripe for immoral delights. Just wanna see Jax go to work with that fucking knife on his belt. Needs better bikes though;p
Sept. 8, 2009, 4:48 p.m. CST
Perlman and Arkin and Rollins
Sept. 8, 2009, 4:51 p.m. CST
Who ever writes his character has given him the most outlandish attitude. Jesus he talked about fucking corpses. <p> Necrophelia is so 21st century. <p> Plus the man can act. He is a male Lili Taylor. Talented but unrecognized.
Sept. 8, 2009, 4:56 p.m. CST
Dang, I wish Katee Sackhoff was in this too. She would be a perfect fit with the biker culture and all.
Sept. 8, 2009, 4:58 p.m. CST
She even rides a bike. Big ol hog rumbling tween her legs. <p> Vroom, vroom, vroom.
Sept. 8, 2009, 5:27 p.m. CST
Sept. 8, 2009, 6:03 p.m. CST
And AMC is the new FX.
Sept. 8, 2009, 6:10 p.m. CST
I love SOA. Great show and a lot of fun.
Sept. 8, 2009, 6:56 p.m. CST
I'm trying not to get to attached. The guy that plays Jax reminds me of Heath Ledger for some reason,but anything that add's Henry Rollins to the cast has got my vote.
Sept. 8, 2009, 6:56 p.m. CST
Well I guess SoA could've gotten worse but then it would be dwelling in the same zip code as Fringe and nothing sucks as bad as Fringe.
Sept. 8, 2009, 7:27 p.m. CST
how many episodes per season? Now I'm curious about it, but I don't feel like catching up on 22 episodes..
Sept. 8, 2009, 7:36 p.m. CST
Did you even catch the last few episodes of season one Herc? Shit got real. Shit got good. Can't wait 'til Opie finds out.
Sept. 8, 2009, 8:36 p.m. CST
Not great, not bad. But c'mon, that Tower shot was great.
Sept. 8, 2009, 9:56 p.m. CST
Thats how good SoA is. Its hard to pick out the best character.
Sept. 8, 2009, 9:57 p.m. CST
And Gemma would be the SCARIEST mother-in-law EVER.

By those damn Nazi assholes!! Wait till Hellboy finds out. There's a war comin'
Sept. 8, 2009, 11:58 p.m. CST
I hope that part was a joke.
Sept. 9, 2009, midnight CST
Because anyone who finished middle school new halfway through the season that they were dealing with alternate dimensions and yet that tower shot had to be there to make sure people understood it. And I'm sure there were people who didn't get it even then. This depresses me.
Sept. 9, 2009, 12:45 a.m. CST
Seems like the network celebrates the adventures of the lowlife- The Shield, Dirty, Riches, Nip/Tuck and their latest gem Sons of Anarchy.
Sept. 9, 2009, 1:36 a.m. CST
I am surprised you even mentioned Sons Of Anarchy, Herc, seeing as there is no jailbait in that show. For all the people not knowing SOA: Give it a shot. It's much better than you might think. And in SOA season 1 Ally Walker played one of the nastiest bitches you will ever see in a tv show. And Katey Segal is definitely not Peggy Bundy in SOA if that's stopping you from watching it.
Sept. 9, 2009, 2:59 a.m. CST
... is one of the best shows on TV right by a distance, right up there with Mad Men. Anyone got any news about Breaking Bad returning?
Sept. 9, 2009, 3:51 a.m. CST
Anyone know the name of the song at the end of tonight's ep?
Sept. 9, 2009, 5:04 a.m. CST
...was you, Herc!
Sept. 9, 2009, 6:09 a.m. CST
I rewatches season one before last night and no sure where these bad episodes were. I thought this was one of the weaker attempts considering where they left us last season with Jax seemingly ready to start the civil war. Now, we are stuck back fighting the Aryans like we were in the first part of season one. Gemma's rape was pretty startling, but I get the feeling they don't want to do the civil war just yet. I get the felling they are stalling until for a third season. I do like the new casting decision, Arkin is corporate smiley and Rollins' deranged look is just awesome. Even with all these problems, its still the best show on TV.
Sept. 9, 2009, 6:47 a.m. CST
Man, I should start watching this show. What da fuck else am I going to watch? 'Melrose Place'?
Sept. 9, 2009, 7:25 a.m. CST
three white supremeacists in michael meyers masms. that shit was freaky.
Sept. 9, 2009, 9:20 a.m. CST
and Charlie Hunham is such a shite actor. I think I'll stick with Sunny from FX, that's all.
Sept. 9, 2009, 11:41 a.m. CST
or that he could act?Nice guy in person as i had the the opportunity to meet him during some album signing back then.I'm looking forward to checking this out.
Sept. 9, 2009, 12:42 p.m. CST
Great to see Ally Walker back. Charlie Hunnam is on it as an actor- kid's english and pulls off the central valley effect perfectly-easily one of the top ten performances on tv by an actor. As for this episode I thought it was kinda weak but considering the EPIC war that the white supremacists have just ignited I'm satisfied. I didn't like Ally Walker's "sweet" attitude at the end- I hope she's up to something. Hale's arc looks like it might be good this season-liked how they kept him in character to stand up to the Nazi's in principle. Henry Rollins is awesome-do bad he's gonna die in a very painful and horrific manner.
Sept. 9, 2009, 1:04 p.m. CST
never got the whole seindfeld thing, hereos is kinda meh, never got into lost. so you see where i'm coming from. but man, i dig the hell outts this show. one of the very few i'll make sure it on the dvr. everything in it is great. a few lil flaws like Jax wearing baggy pants an tennis shoes are easily looked over when the acting and storylines blow you away
Sept. 9, 2009, 1:45 p.m. CST
Best show on television right now.
Sept. 9, 2009, 1:56 p.m. CST
They've profiled Biker Gangs on Gangland like the Hells Angels, Mongols, Outlaws, Pagans, Sons of Silence, Warlocks and the Breed. So the characters being sociopath scumbags is realistic. The whole war with the White Separtists thing looks too gimicky, just a way to make the SOA seem more simpathetic instead of a war with blacks or latinos. Real Biker Gangs are affiliated with Nazi/Skinhead/Aryan groups mainly because of their Prison Gang connections and no swatiska or SS symbol tats on the SOA?! The main reason Mongols formed was Hell's Angels didn't accept Latinos and Mongols are mainly a Latino Biker gang. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out one of the main guys is really undercover cop or ATF agent- look for the guy who doesn't kill.
Sept. 9, 2009, 4:11 p.m. CST
NOW? Fucking finally.
Sept. 9, 2009, 4:12 p.m. CST
Poop in the pants ending. Nothing crazy new, but looking at where they are going to go with it looks crazy.
Sept. 9, 2009, 4:13 p.m. CST
Does own this show, she'll get a emmey nod next year. Pearlman is just mugging at the camera, and Heath Ledger 2 looks to be shapping up nicely.
Sept. 9, 2009, 4:15 p.m. CST
Finally fit the role he is playing. I think thats the best I've ever seen him....oh well who am I kidding he'll never top his performence in Johnny Newmonic.
Sept. 9, 2009, 7:40 p.m. CST
Hunnam is perfect in this role...much better as a badass with a f'ed up moral compass than as a pretty boy. Katey Segal is perfect. Kim Coates is an awesome sociopath and the addition of Henry Rollins just makes me fucking giggle with delight. This season will be must see TV and SOA is probably my fave show right now. I agree that we need more from Perlman though. He does just constantly mug for the camera... and Opie is gonna have a fun story arc this season as well. You gotta love Bobby Elvis and I even kind of dig the dipshit prospect that used to be on MTV's Undressed. Can't wait till next Tuesday night!
Sept. 9, 2009, 7:42 p.m. CST
TOOOO many comments about the violence!!!!!!! Go watch the Discovery Channel and tell me why underwater volcanoes are going to blow up the earth and life as we know it. This has become a great show, driven by characters...not violence
Sept. 10, 2009, 2:23 a.m. CST
Katey Segal was badass as always. Perlman always makes me laugh with his mutt mug. Hunnam gets better and better. And Henry Rollins finally has a role he can be proud of.
Sept. 10, 2009, 2:47 a.m. CST
loved the first episode. rollins is a legend. now im all scared its gonna get cancelled cause of low ratings! that would suck
Sept. 10, 2009, 4:45 a.m. CST
Did pretty good the other night
Sept. 10, 2009, 8:30 a.m. CST
Was in Waterwold, thats what I remember him from.
Sept. 10, 2009, 12:52 p.m. CST
..man was that a fucked up scene.It was like Peg Bundy getting banged by a bunch of Michael Myers.Good ep BTW and Rollins rules!
Sept. 11, 2009, 9:22 a.m. CST
Damn that last scene fucking ripped my face off, haven't seen something that hard on TV since Aceveda got raped on the shield. And Henry Rollings as a rapist neonazi is nuts. He looked like he was about to rape/kill everything in each scene, that guy is so fucking intense.
Sept. 11, 2009, 1:49 p.m. CST
It was the role Rollins was born to play. <P> Its good to see something good came out of that abortion of a film from James Bond's first born.
