Sons of Anarchy, S4: Potentially unsatisfying year promises great things to come

8 December 2011 9:13 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sons of Anarchy, Season 4 Recap

Created by Kurt Sutter

Airs on FX

If getting out was that easy, this would simply be a different show; so while highly predictable, this season‘s ending brought the Shakespearean step-father-son relationship finally to the peak season one had already laid out: Jax stepping up to the gavel. Hopefully this resolution will lead to another season of borderline morals, complex intertwined narrative, manipulation, surreal shoot-outs, and sharp dialogues, preferably in the well composed way season one and two worked out.

So this is where it‘s at now: hospitalized Clay (Ron Perlman) was stepped down and Jax (Charlie Hunnam) forced to step up, finally fulfilling his Teller fate. Tara (Maggie Siff) is devastated but understanding, and of course backing her man; Gemma‘s (Katey Sagal) master plan finally worked out as the club‘s dynasty is carried on by her son – maybe not fully »

Sons of Anarchy Season 4 Finale – All Hell Gets Rolled Back

7 December 2011 12:31 PM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

The Sons of Anarchy Season 4 finale has come and gone – in two parts. After an “all-hell-broke-loose’ “To Be, Part 1” – thank you very much Tig (Kim Coates), Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and Tara (Maggie Siff), the actual final episode took a distinctively slower paced turn. Top 10 Moments From Sons Of Anarchy Season 4 Finale, Part 1 Unfortunately for many viewers, news of Romeo’s (Danny Trejo) potential collusion with the government was spoiled a week back. Other viewers who didn’t catch the Internet spoilers grew weary of Romeo after he told Jax that Otto (Kurt Sutter) did not turn on the club. Sure enough, just as Linc (Ray McKinnon), the feds and Roosevelt (Rockmond Dunbar) were set to arrest members of Galindo, the Ira and Samcro as part of their Rico case, “The Three Amigos” showed up. Romeo (Danny Trejo) and Luis (Benito Martinez) arrived with their CIA handler, flashing badges. They shut »

Ray McKinnon Sons Of Anarchy Interview

5 December 2011 6:15 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

On the FX drama series Sons of Anarchy, actor Ray McKinnon has been a memorable addition to Season 4, as Assistant U.S. District Attorney Lincoln Potter. His eccentric and off-beat approach to taking down Samcro, that at times has resembled a human chess game, has turned a few heads in town, including Charming’s newest lawman, Sheriff Eli Roosevelt (Rockmond Dunbar). With this season coming to a close, Collider got the opportunity to speak with Ray McKinnon for this exclusive interview about how he’s both grateful and baffled that show creator Kurt Sutter asked him to join the show, his fear that his take on the character wouldn’t be well-received, how lucky he feels to have been a part of such great storytelling, and that he feels Lincoln’s storyline was pretty well wrapped up, by the end of the season. He also talked about the pilot that »

Matt's Inside Line: Scoop on Sons of Anarchy, Supernatural, Homeland, Gossip Girl and More

28 November 2011 8:08 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Is the supersized Sons of Anarchy finale as good as the 12 episodes that came before it? Who will be butting heads on Homeland? Why is Sam Winchester consorting with a hooker? Read on for those answers, plus other teases from TV’s hottest shows.

Sons of Anarchy | Season 4′s two-part finale kicks off this Tuesday, and it is just as gripping, satisfying and shocking as you expect it to be. Opie’s shooting of Clay of course has massive ripple effects, including one seemingly minor – yet potentially major – death in this week’s hour. Among the standout performances in the finale, »

TV Review: Sons Of Anarchy 4.10 – Hands

10 November 2011 12:44 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

The latest episode of Sons Of Anarchy ‘Hands’ was another brilliant hour of TV and the most devastating of the season so far. Many scenes had me on the edge of my seat, some had me close to welling up and others simply had me wanting to look away in horror. It might have been a difficult episode to sit through in places, but it’s one which marks another turning point for the show – the wait for each new episode of the season is becoming an ordeal in of itself.

Much to my surprise, the hands of the title wasn’t a reference to Clay’s (Ron Perlman)– of which Jax (Charlie Hunnam) referred to as “half dead” last week – but Tara (Maggie Siff), whose found herself targeted by Romeo’s (Danny Trejo) men. She managed to get a brief taste of what a life »

Exclusive: Sons of Anarchy Boss Kurt Sutter Sheds Light on This Week's Very Dark Twists

8 November 2011 11:00 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

[The following contains major spoilers from this Tuesday's episode of FX's Sons of Anarchy. If you have yet to lay witness to it all, turn back now.]

If you thought FX’s Sons of Anarchy came in hot this Tuesday night and let loose with a bevy of dark twists, series creator Kurt Sutter needs you to know this: “Things will only continue to spiral downward” for Jax, Clay and the rest of the Samcro crowd. For viewers, he does promise an imminent chance to “breathe” (though, he notes, the show will stop well short of serving up “a lot of laughter”).

In the wake of all that transpired during the episode aptly titled “Hands,” TVLine invited Sutter to discuss the storytelling avenues he steered his Sons onto, »

Sons of Anarchy Review: Broken Bones, Bonds

8 November 2011 8:00 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

My. Goodness.

Just how intense was this week's episode of Sons of Anarchy? How riveting was "Hands?" Consider this admission: I forgot Piney was dead.

Seriously. I know we saw Unser covering up the crime, and I know Clay halted Opie's trip to the cabin early on, but then Tara was abducted... and her hand smashed... and we learned Potter was a fan of cartoons... and Eli offered up his services to Juice... and Clay went all Chris Brown on Tara and... what can I say?

By the time Jax made his major apology to Opie and told him to go see his old man, I had forgotten all about the most significant development from season four, even though it only took place two episodes ago. That's how much action went down this week, and that's how deeply it was all seared into my brain.

No scene more than Tara's meltdown in the hospital. »

Rockmond Dunbar Talks Sons Of Anarchy and Pastor Brown

8 November 2011 2:49 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

On the FX drama series Sons of Anarchy, actor Rockmond Dunbar (Terriers, Prison Break, Soul Food) stars as Charming’s new lawman, Eli Roosevelt, a no-nonsense member of the San Joaquin Sheriff's Department, he takes his job seriously and doesn’t like to be manipulated. Recruited into Assistant U.S. Attorney Lincoln Potter’s (Ray McKinnon) task force to help bring down the Sons’ gun-running operation, he quickly realizes that he is also just a pawn in a larger scheme. During a recent interview to promote his role on Season 4 of the popular show, Rockmond Dunbar talked about how recent events will effect his character’s actions, that Eli comes from a lineage of police officers, that his character was originally supposed to die after 10 episodes, how much he loves working with Peter Weller as a director, and that he has family members that were in the first black Harley motorcycle gang, »

Rockmond Dunbar Reveals His Sons of Anarchy Fate: 'I Don't Die, So That's a Good Thing!'

8 November 2011 8:49 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

A show like Sons of Anarchy tends to villainize the “good guy.” More often than not, the cops, agents and lawmen on FX’s gritty drama (airing Tuesdays at 10/9c) ultimately meet their maker  — and when they do, fans tend to feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Oddly enough, this tried-and-true formula doesn’t seem to apply to Charming’s latest Sheriff, played by Terriers/Prison Break alum Rockmond Dunbar, a fact that is seemingly not lost on Sons showrunner Kurt Sutter.

“My first conversation [with Kurt] went like this: ‘Hey, look man, we’re going to bring you in for a 10-episode arc. »

TV Review: Sons Of Anarchy 4.9 – Kiss

3 November 2011 1:37 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Sons of Anarchy has been on a tremendous run recently and while the latest episode ‘Kiss’ wasn’t quite as stunning as last weeks stand-out ‘Family Recipe’, it was a quality episode that kept the drama building admirably.

I’m a little bemused over the sequence which gave the episode its sultry title, as we saw Gemma (Katey Sagal) giving Wayne Unser (Dayton Callie) a smooch, as they discovered the body of Piney (William Lucking) – whom was brutally slain by Clay (Ron Perlman) last week, with a shotgun blast to the chest.

Her reaction to finding Piney was understandably one of horror, but it soon gave way to conflicting thoughts over her feelings towards Clay. To me, it kind of makes sense that she feels an allegiance to protect the man she loves – whatever the cost. Not only this, but she also revealed her full knowledge of John Teller’s murder, »

Rockmond Dunbar to Return to Bet's The Game

2 November 2011 1:36 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

TV Line is reporting that Rockmond Dunbar will be returning to Bet's The Game for a 6-8 episode arc in its upcoming fifth season. Dunbar, currently portraying new Charming sheriff Eli Roosevelt on Sons of Anarchy, will be reprising his role as Pookie, who he played in a season three episode.

The Game returned to television last January nearly two years after being canceled by The CW. The show, which found a foothold on Bet with its well-rated reruns, then exploded in popularity, arguably launching Bet's current scripted boom. The network recently debuted Reed Between the Lines, a sitcom featuring Tracee Ellis Ross (Girlfriends) and Malcolm-Jamal Warner (The Cosby Show), and will be premiering the next seasons of The Game and Let's Stay Together in January.

Dunbar, most known for his leading role in Showtime's Soul Food, has appeared in the likes of Terriers, Prison Break, and Heartland.

2 November 2011 11:19 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Bet’s The Game has recruited Sons of Anarchy lawman Rockmond Dunbar for a major arc.

“I just signed on to do six to eight episodes of The Game,” the actor revealed on Wednesday during a conference call to promote his FX hit. Dunbar will reprise the role of Pookie, a character he played back in a 2009 episode. “He’s a very interesting guy and so much fun,” he added with a laugh.

The Game Plans Sister, Sister Reunion

Dunbar’s other recent TV credits include the unceremoniously axed Terriers, The Closer and of course Prison Break.

'Sons of Anarchy': Theo Rossi loves Juice

2 November 2011 11:04 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Sons of Anarchy" has been very, very good to Theo Rossi. Just ask him.

"'Sons' has changed my life," Rossi tells Zap2it, "for so many different reasons. That would take 45 interviews. Just little things, like, personally, every single way. I'm ecstatic with anything I do on the show. I'm so lucky, because I really enjoy going to work every day. These guys are my best friends on and off the set. We hang out all the time."

For the show's first three seasons, Rossi's character, Juan Carlos "Juice" Ortiz, has been Samcro's computer hacker and intelligence officer, if somewhat less capable in the field-operations area. But this season, Juice has found himself in some mighty hot water.

The new local sheriff, Lt. Eli Roosevelt (Rockmond Dunbar), put the squeeze on Juice, threatening to reveal his mixed-race ancestry to the all-Caucasian club.

TV Review: Sons Of Anarchy 4.7 – Fruit For The Crows

20 October 2011 8:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

It’s been an oddly subdued season of Sons of Anarchy, but last weeks episode ‘With an X’ was a great one – pushing the season forward and satisfyingly rectifying the notable weaknesses of prior episodes. ‘Fruit For The Crows’ has shown itself to be another standout episode, perhaps suggesting that this is a season that’s just starting to lay its best cards out on the table.

Juice’s (Theo Rossi) storyline – being manipulated by the law and in turn betraying the club – has already been one of the most gripping of the season, but it reached a particularly gut-wrenching point this week. After being arrested by Roosevelt (Rockmond Dunbar) on possession of cocaine after an entrapment set-up suggested by Lincoln Potter (Ray McKinnon), the terms of his co-operation were made explicitly clear. Returning to the clubhouse, clearly distraught, he was given a special patch by »

Will Twentieth Century Fox Bring Back Soul Food?

19 October 2011 2:02 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Following news earlier this month that Lifetime would be crafting a version of Steel Magnolias with an all-black cast, it looks like another predominately black project is getting off the ground.

According to FishbowlLA, Twentieth Century Fox has expressed interest in reviving Soul Food, the former Showtime series based on the 1997 film of the same name. There's been no word on any potential casting or what network the series is being targeted for, but Twentieth Century is said to be looking to "revamp the series for a new generation".

Although I think Bet makes a lot of sense as a possible network home for the show, considering its success with scripted shows recently (The Game, Reed Between the Lines, Let's Stay Together), I'd love to see a drama like this get a fighting chance on one of the Big Four. Yes, there'd be higher expectations and a smaller margin for error, »
