FX cemented its reputation as the “Holy crap, was that really necessary?” network last night during Sons of Anarchy’s fifth season finale, when ex-Sons member Otto, an incarcerated killer who’d murdered an infirmary nurse last week, bit off his own tongue, spit the bloody hunk out on an interrogation room table, and giggled maniacally. “Wow, Otto,” said the murdered nurse’s brother, Lee Toric (Donal Logue), watching through a two-way mirror. “Way to commit!”  You can tell a lot about a filmmaker based on what kind of cameo he gives himself; Otto, played by Sons of Anarchy creator and head writer Kurt Sutter, is a demonic imp, on par with the nostril-slitting creep played by Roman Polanski in Chinatown. Toric’s peanut gallery comment sums up my own attitude toward Sons of Anarchy, season five — the whole run of it, really. I don’t like every episode or every scene, »
