A moment of high praise for FX’s top drama, “Sons of Anarchy,” riding off into the sunset this year as Sutter’s Hamlet on Harleys says goodbye to characters like Gemma (Katey Sagal), Jax (Charlie Hunnam), Tig (Kim Coates), Bobby (Mark Boone Junior), Juice (Theo Rossi), Wendy (Drea de Matteo), Unser (Dayton Callie) and Chuckie (Michael Ornstein) among many stellar acting peers who have served showrunner Kurt Sutter well over the seven years it aired on the network. Sutter even played a pivotal Samcro character – Otto Delaney – in the series.Even FX chief exec John Landgraf’s wife Ally Walker was […] »

I gave up on writing about Sons of Anarchy because, frankly, I felt I covered everything in my advance review. It was the same machinations, with once reasonably intelligent characters doing dumb things and following blindly in the footsteps of Jax Teller (whose reign at the head of the table is far more violent and vicious than anything Clay Morrow did, but another day for that one, huh?). But as the season’s gone on and gotten so bloated that I’m worried how long the actual finale will be (this episode, the 11th is the longest of the season at 72:56, slightly shorter than a film), I’ve slightly come around on this season. Slightly. It’s still a show that relies on machinations, poor plotting (even when it’s trying to be clever), and acting that varies wildly. It’s also damned ugly, look at the rape scene between Ron Tully and Juice, »

A weekly feature in which we spotlight shining stars
The Performer | Karen Gillan
The Show | Selfie
The Episode | “Here’s This Guy”
The Airdate | November 11, 2014
The Performance | ABC’s recent decision to cancel its freshman sitcom Selfie is, on many levels, as cruel and capricious as a hunter taking a shot at a baby bird making its maiden flight from the nest.
Ratings (and dubious title) aside, the cute-but-uneven rom-com that premiered in September has seen its heart triple, perhaps even quadruple, in size over the course of seven episodes — in no small part due to the goofy commitment and »
If you're a Sons of Anarchy fan who can't stop talking about the performances Walton Goggins and Kim Coates delivered in that beautiful bedroom conversation between Venus and Tig in the Nov. 11 episode, you are not alone. Executive producer Paris Barclay, who directed "Faith and Despondency," phoned EW Radio from Wales on Wednesday to rave about what he considers to be possibly the best performance by any two actors in the FX drama's seven seasons. Listen to the clip below. "There was really true love there, and when it was done, the crew just stopped and applauded them," Barclay says. »

If you missed Conan's amazing Sons of Anarchy show last night, you're in for a treat. The episode included guests such as Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter and stars Charlie Hunnam, Theo Rossi, Tommy Flanagan, Kim Coates, Mark Boone Junior, Drea de Matteo, and Jimmy Smits. This actually may have been the best show Conan O'Brien has done so far. But that might be because I'm also a fan of Sons of Anarchy. One of my favorite parts of the show was the hilarious cold opening that featured O'Brien decked out as a badass biker looking for trouble, and he finds it. O'Brien looks ridiculous in it. This might just be one of the funniest things you see today. I also included an amusing tourist commercial for the fictional town in Sons of Anarchy, Charming, CA, that Conan showed his audience. Enjoy!

Sons of Anarchy, Season 7, Episode 10, “Faith and Despondency”
Directed by Paris Barclay
Written by Kurt Sutter
Airs Tuesdays at 10pm (Et) on FX
Lo, the grandmother’s comeuppance begins not in the form of blackmail from a member of Samcro, nor an outside party seeking revenge. No, it comes at last from her own flesh and blood. Abel, who this episode goes a long way towards transitioning from “devil spawn” to “devil spawn with revenge blinders on”, single-handedly starts the avalanche that will doom Gemma in the end. The first half of “Faith and Despondency” lays the seeds well, not playing an obvious hand as to whether the reveal would come in the confines of this episode or if it would be pushed until next week again. By the last third, however, the dread builds slowly but surely until Jax’s bedtime visit could not reasonably culminate in anything besides »

Still up after that oh-so-long episode of “Sons of Anarchy?” Well tuck the kids in tight and be sure to hide all the forks because finally—finally the moment we’ve all been waiting for happened. Or, did it? Tuesday night’s “Faith and Despondency” took a long time getting there (arguably an entire season, let alone this supersized episode), but by the closing seconds Jax finally heard the truth that we’ve wanted him to hear for weeks now: that his mother was the one who killed Tara. And he heard it from Abel no less. At this point in the season I was ready for the truth to come from anyone, but there’s something poetic about a five-year-old being in the know regarding Gemma’s true ways while Jax continues to be blind about them despite everything she’s done. Not having seen the previews for next week, »

Spoiler alert: In the Nov. 11 episode of Sons of Anarchy, "Faith and Despondency," Venus (Walton Goggins) and Tig (Kim Coates) took their relationship to the next level—then almost called it quits. The always eloquent Goggins, who's recurred as the transgender escort for three seasons, talked to EW about filming their emotional conversation—and where he thinks Venus and Tig went afterward. Bonus for Justified fans, he also got us psyched for that show's final season, which premieres in January. (He's about to start shooting episode six.) EW: Venus and Tig's heart-to-heart follows Jarry and Chibs' combative love scene. It »

Does “Too Many Cooks” mean everything or nothing? "What did it all mean?” asks Ian Crook. "Maybe everything: it was a postmodern satire of television and Web culture, a commentary on the power of nostalgia, a glimpse at the violence that lurks within us all. Perhaps it was a deconstruction on the very idea of virality itself: it’s the Internet that has too many cooks, and all of us, together, with our sharing and repeated clever comments and urge to be the first to share what thousands of others have already shared, have spoiled the broth. Or else it meant nothing, and quit it, you dummies.” Plus: “Too Many Cooks” is the smartest critique of our changing TV landscape, it subverts our expectations of nostalgia, the "definitive" ranking of every character, “Too Many Cooks” creator says "I hate to talk about it too much,” “Too Many Cooks” is set in Denver, »

FX's Sons of Anarchy aftershow, Anarchy Afterword, returns to FX tonight following episode 10, and fans will be happy to see who's at the head of the table.

It’s been a pretty crazy week for Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter, as he had to have his appendix suddenly removed during the middle of shooting the series finale of the show. However, after having longtime Sons director Paris Barclay fill in for him while he was recovering, Sutter returned to set on Wednesday and continued his directing duties until last night, when Sutter, the cast, and crew all finished filming the Sons of Anarchy finale. Sutter let fans know that they had wrapped on the final episode by posting the tweet below. That’s a wrap. Thank you. #soa#finalridehttp://t.co/TGYgugPNfI — kurt sutter (@sutterink) October 31, 2014 Although the final scenes of on the Sons of Anarchy finale finished last night, some of the show’s main actors had already had their last days on set.

In a decidedly rare movie these days, Syfy is letting you in on one of its original movies that’s less than two weeks away.
There isn’t much to know at this point, beyond the fact that there’s some potential to the concept, but at least we know who we’ll be watching.
Sci-Fi fans might want a little more info on exactly what “mutant” means, because it might turn out all too similar to “zombie,” but if you’re looking for a slick, popcorn adventure, having people emerge from their bunkers ten years post apocalypse gives you a lot of options. That’s especially true if you throw in a mysterious stranger with tales of a safe haven.
Keep an eye out for this one, though you don’t have a long time to decide.

Charlie Hunnam Films 'Soa'
Hunnam was pictured leaning against his character Jax Teller's Harley Davidson when the cameras weren't rolling. Dressed in his Samcro attire, Hunnam wore baggy jeans, Jax's signature white sneakers and a plaid shirt under his black leather vest. Around his waste, he was packing his trusty knife.
As the Sons of Anarchy cast is nearing the end of filming the show's seventh and final season, the actors have expressed their wish that it wasn't the end of the road. “We could still be telling this story for five more years, but when we signed on for a seven-year contract, in [creator Kurt] Sutter’s mind, »
The end is near for Kurt Sutter‘s violent motorcycle epic “Sons of Anarchy” on FX, and the cast is preparing to say goodbye still, just as the fans are. Filming isn't set to wrap until December, meaning actors Kim Coates and Theo Rossi are still in the thick of the chaos. It also means they don't know how the show is going to play out yet, or the final fates of their characters. The pair stepped away from the show's set for a drink and a chat on the latest episode of TheWrap's “Drinking With the Stars.” Also read: »

EW's recent cover story (read it online) reveals some of them: among the objects in Charlie Hunnam's backpack is a marijuana grinder; Katey Sagal is happy to talk about Justin Theroux's jogging attire on The Leftovers.
