TV Show Reviews

While I am fully aware that there are very few people out there that actually read this blog, and even fewer people out there that care about my opinion on TV shows, I am bored tonight, and thought I'd start reviewing some of the shows I watch. Due to my current employment, I find I have a lot of time on my hands, and not many ways to spend it, so I watch a lot of TV Series on DVD. From time to time, I am going to review either the TV series, or movies that I watch, for your reading pleasure.

I am going to cover some of the plot, so if you don't want spoilers, you might not want to read everything I write. In order to grade the shows and movies, I will have a scale. The ratings will be as follows:

Mind-blowingly fucking awesome
Worth the time if you're bored
Kill yourself before watching this
Watching a one legged midget in a porno sucking off donkeys would be better then this.

Today's review is going to be on Sons of Anarchy. For those of you that have never heard of it, Sons of Anarchy, SOA, is a show on FX. The show is based on a motorcycle gang that lives in a town called Charming, CA.

My vote for this is a "Mind-blowingly fucking awesome". This show has it all. Drugs, guns, chicks, fights, and motorcycles. It's like every 40 year old man suffering a mid-life crisis' wet dream. From feuding with the Mayans(A Mexican MC, or Motorcycle Club) to outsmarting the ATF agents that are on the case, SAMCRO(An acronym for Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original) is not afraid to get their hands dirty.

I fully recommend this show for everyone. Although it is very violent(hence the "Mind-blowingly fucking awesome rating) you can also take a few messages from it. Wikipedia has an entry on it that relates it to Shakespeare. Although it appears to be all about the violence and drugs and guns on the surface, the show is very deep if you put some thought into it.

There is the classic father vs. son battle. Will the old ways work forever? Or is it time to change the direction they're headed? Then there is the good vs. evil battle. Do the ends justify the means? Can you really rely on a motorcycle gang to keep the peace in your town? All of these struggles and more are played out on the screen in this very dramatic series.
