Sons of Anarchy - LOVED IT!

We were late jumping on the Sons of Anarchy bandwagon - Season 1 was a Christmas gift for my husband, well, right, from that first episode, we were hooked.   It wasn't broadcast on Netflix Canada, so I bought the second season, then I had a brainwave and checked my local library, they had every season and by the time we finished season 6, the final and last, season 7 was out and available there too!  


Some evenings we would watch three episodes, we talked about it the next day, I can honestly say, we have never watched a tv show and were so engrossed in it.  It's a story of a biker club in California - tough men in a violent world -  and it IS violent and gets more violent as the seasons go on.   Every episode was gripping - so many situations with the guys and their relationships!  We finished it over a week ago and we're still talking about it!!


It's not often CD's are bought in this house anymore, but had to have this collection!    The music is excellent - old songs, newer songs,  songs written specifically, for the show - the majority of them performed by The Forest Rangers.  Katy Sagal, who starred as Peg Bundy in Married with Children plays the character of Gemma, she  joins the band on a few songs, her voice is wonderful on Son of a Preacher Man.   





We thought this show was something like The Sopranos, we loved that one but we thought this one was even better!  I say "yay" to this show, I know there are a lot of people who would not care for it, but to each his own, isn't that right?

  3. Hi Jill! I'm so glad you mentioned this. I'm always behind on the trendy things to watch, so I'll have to add this to my list. I'd heard of it, just didn't know what it was about. My parents just got Netflix. Maybe they can watch it with that. I have a feeling that they'd like it too!
    Hope you're doing well.

  4. Sons of Anarchy is over the top with scheming and betrayal, sex, violence and more violence. Guess that is why it is so popular, lol. Well written also, but difficult for me to watch with all that violence.

    If you liked this, try Ray Donovan.

  6. This was one of my favorite shows that I have seen in awhile. I got on the bandwagon late too. I ended up watching all the seasons on Netflix the few months before the final season aired. I think the show before this one that I was totally engrossed in would have to be Breaking Bad.

  7. We are big fans of the SoA franchise - it's well worth getting into right?
