“ Seasons 1-3. The season 3 finale is one of my favorite episodes, but in season 4, they immediately *beep* up the entire series by making Clay a bad guy even though he finally reached a good standing with Jax. That really pisses me off, and the show keeps getting worse. Thankfully, it's ending this season.

EDIT: The series finale was actually pretty good, and really fitting. It reminded me of the original seasons, with the connection between Jax and JT. That has been forgotten about over the past couple seasons. ” - nathanielsliwowski

“ Great series, minus the few hiccups.

My favorite episodes include:
"First Day", "Exit 9B", "KILIT Radio", "The Postcard", "Maxin' and Relaxin'", "This Is My Jam", and "A Bunch of Baby Ducks".

EDIT: So, the series ended recently, and now I can comment on the last few seasons. Seasons 1-4 I think are the best. After that, the show became kind of prioritized with the romance, which was never that interesting to me. Romance is best left up to shows like "Steven Universe". But, the last season, with Pop's arch, and the show being set in space, was interesting, and it was pretty good. And the finale, actually, was really damn good, and I cried for about 20 minutes after it. All in all, great series. ” - nathanielsliwowski

EDIT: After Season 2 started, there have been quite a few episodes that would qualify for my favorites list. I'm awfully sad the show is ending after this season though. :-(

EDIT 2: The show is over, and the finale was pretty good. I'm glad the show ended with Dominator still being a bad guy, that was great. ” - nathanielsliwowski

“ Pretty ok show, for the most part. I definitely prefer the Charlie Sheen era of the show over the Ashton Kutcher part, but it isn't really his fault. I don't mind Ashton Kutcher, he just isn't right for this show. And, to be fair, even in the Charlie Sheen era, there were a few bad seasons. But, when this show shined, it really shined. Something I always admired is how funny they make some of the background characters. The doctor played by Ryan Stiles, the next-door-neighbor played by the late Michael Clark Douglas. The wimpy pizza boy. Whenever these guys show up, you know to expect some big laughs. ” - nathanielsliwowski
