Your appreciation of plot development, getting inside the dramatis personae, etc., etc. all improve at a geometric rate. So get hold of a whole season of SOA (or whatever) and eat up 45 minutes of your life every night for two weeks. Entertainment of the highest order (and no commercials).


My wife and I have an ongoing argument. She wants all the episodes back to back; I want them a few at a time. Since I control the flicks on Netflix I get control, control freak that I am.
We did get through Battlestar Gallactica in about two months, and The Shield in four. Since I don't get HBO or Showtime we have to be patient for Nurse Jackie, Big Love, and Treatment.

When the Babster and I got into Lost we watched at least two a day every day for weeks.

Once in a while the show will slow down and display it's heart. Last episode did that. The prolonged scene where Jax watches his son's adoptive parents in an indoor market, and the agony on his face as he struggles with the biggest sacrifice of all: giving up his son so he can live a normal life. And then his distress at finding them in their Hotel room. It was great movie making.

Also loved the previous episode when he finds out, just in time, that he almost committed incest. "I was ten minutes from dancing in Tig territory."

At the risk of waxing medieval, at least we've finally been "freed of this wretched priest"!

I suspect he's gone after having gone to a Christ like death. My guess it's to appease those who thought his character was leaning more towards the devil.

wow.... a season finale ripped straight out of the Godfather (and not in a bad way). Utterly fabulous.

Battlme's cover of Hey Hey My My was perfection as wrap-it-up music.

*standing, ovating* Wow! I didn't see that coming. I just knew Stall was going to get it, but didn't see it coming to Opie (stone killer). But I knew the Serrif was up to something, when he swung back to the boys and Clay gave him the Godfather "kiss." just didn't know The Serriff was in on the set-up. Ha, didn't know there WAS a set-up.

Great ending--for now. One of the times I approve of bloody violence in tv. just wish Stall'd have had more time to suffer. :mrgreen:

How great is the plotting/character development when you find yourself cheering a rogue biker as he machine-guns an ATF agent in the back of the head while she begs for mercy?!

My staid British wife was muttering "kill the bitch" throughout. My guess is they had her off her lover in order for the audience to get into the mood. The ending sure fooled me. Now we have 2 shows with characters doing time in the off season. The other one is "Terriers." And one on the lam: "Breaking Bad."

So which of 3 versions of Sons do we get next year:

•one in which they escape the slammer and life goes on?

•one which, Desparate Housewives-like, simply jumps ahead in time?

•Oz II?

Katey Sagal deserves an Emmy (I said that last year too, actually).

Of course, if a rogue-biker series isn't your cup o' tea......


Glad to see that at least the Golden Globes got it right and gave Sagal Best Actress.

The Beauteous Babs and I just spent last couple of weeks rewatching all 39 episodes in close succession. Amazing how much more character development comes out when the preceding episodes are fresher in your mind. But what a great cliffhanger to season 4!

Yes the bad boys are back, and already in need of new enemies. When will Jax's gf realize he's as likely to leave SAMCRO as Michael Corleone was to leave the Corleones? Will she care? Will she take over Gemma's mantle?

Boy are they making Clay out to be a mean SOB in this years series. If he's not careful Gemma might just exchange cyanide for his Viagara. If I were Tara I'd split with the kid before Macbeth and Lady get seriously pissed at her.

I enjoy the show but the "Jax wants out" angle is becoming a bit tiresome. Much like Rescue Me's Tommy " almost drinks, drinks, beats someone up and we're back to normal next week" angle got tiring after a while.

I find myself thinking "just leave dammit!".

Looks like they're setting up Clay to be offed by either Jax or Opie, or even Gemma. He has gone way off the rez.

O.K. SAMCRO fans here's a few questions:

1. Will Clay be offed? 2. This year or next? Will the season end with a "who killed J.R. redux"?
3. Who will off him?
4. Will Gemma ride off with Tig?
5. Will Juice get outed and will the club accept him?

There's only one person that can stop Tara from being killed.....Tara...so I think Tara will end up killing Clay.

I've thought for a few weeks that the series is headed towards jax and tara inheriting the roles of Gemma and Clay. Gemma will stick around as matriarch since she's married to Kirk Sutter.

I can't figure out the Otto angle. They spent so much time on it last night that he somehow has to be involved in whatever major story line ongoing happens but I can't figure that out.

The whole Otto thread, as I read it, is that if he takes the deal, the club is finished, so it's a huge problem lurking in the background.... can the boys escape at the last minute once again?!

Of course, bringing him back in also gave us a chance to revisit the porn set, so we got gratuitous (semi)nudity, and, of course, another colorful shooting.

Although I must note that (I've been watching too much CSI!) given where the guys were standing, and with all the shots going through the lid of the trunk, most of the lead ended up in the back seat, not in Georgie Caruso.

Seems that gh needs to brush up on his pop culture.

On the other hand...I didn't realize that was Sutter.

Best guess is that Clay was wearing a vest when Opie shot him. But his days seem numbered unless Sutter pulls some Vic Mackey nine lives scenario.

The premise is that Jax has to stay. Can't be Bobby as he appears to have a bit of a problem. Can't be Opie as he's already been declared incapable and he just shot the current leader. Clay...definitely blood spatter....is either deceased or severely incapacitated. So Jax has to take over.

True but maybe Clay had stolen some cranberry juice from Gemma knowing he wasn't going to get any...and stfuffed it in his shirt....that's my story...

And Tara's definitely showing signs of being Gemma-ized.

I think Tara dies. Hit never called off.

I think Clay dies. At the hands of Tara's instructions to Jax.

I also think Tara has a copy of the "missing" pages-that show Gemma was part of plot to kill Jax Sr-and will use them to leave Charming. As to Tara's f-up'd assasination was it just me or were those Irish guys?
