Trivia

When the series explores the Sons' deeper involvement with the IRA and ultimate trip to Belfast, Ireland, the episodes chronicling the chapter's period overseas are titled in Irish: "Lochan Mor" (Big Pond/Lake) (S3/E8), "Turas" (Journey/Tour) (S3/E9), "Fírinne" (Truth) (S3/E10), "Bainne" (Milk) (S3/E11). The theme song "This Life", that opens every series episode, features the addition of Irish traditional musical instruments (flutes, tin whistles) for the duration of the Irish stopover. Episode 13 (season 2) is titled "Na Trioblóidí" which is Irish for "The Troubles", a period generally pertaining to the 30-year political/religious unrest in Northern Ireland that ultimately ended with the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.

Started strong....winding up stupid
20 November 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I only recently started watching this show. In the last 3 weeks I've watched season 1 to season 6. So unlike other reviewers I have not spent 5 years watching this show.

Firstly this show is Hamlet re-imagined if you've seen Hamlet (or any Shakespeare movie) you will identify similarities and draw comparisons between the two. The problem is where Shakespeare is masterful...Sons of Anarchy is frustrating, full of plot holes, full of unbelievable "factuals", stupid and the show treats its audience as dumb as the "White Trash" characters in it.

While I'm not going to ruin this show with spoilers I will say this - Laws and legal matters that are handled in this show are terrible and not even in the realm of believable. Affidavits submitted by felons or people related to felons, warrants issued based of these affidavits (btw warrants usually take more than a day to process unlike this show which seems to process them in about 20min in real time), retired federal agents or agents related to people involved in the crime or victims (conflict of interest). Also under the Fourth Amendment, 95% of the legal matters within this show (which make up a great deal of the show) are bulls**t.

It throws the show even further when everyone has such a convoluted agenda...99.9999% of people in reality aren't generally as complicated as every character is on this show.

When can we have a show were the drama feels real? the characters are believable? the show makes sense?
