In Season 3, Tara became pregnant with Thomas when Able was 8 or 9 months old, which means Able must have been about 18 months old when Thomas was born. Thomas barely ages throughout the rest of the show, while Able keeps growing. At the end of Season 7 Able is 5, and Thomas is still just a baby of maybe a year old. By that time, Thomas had to be 3 at the very least. See more »

Superb My Son!
22 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK, I saw Sons Of Anarchy by mistake a few weeks back (I recorded the wrong program) I Had heard of it but never really fancied it! Bikers and all that, not my thing! I had major doubts about Charlie Hunnam, I have only ever seen him in one thing before and that was a movie called Green Street (Hooligans) where he played an East End Londoner (West Ham) football fan-cum-hooligan! He is from Newcastle and his accent in Green Street was terrible but he must have had some voice coaching because in SOA he accent (usa) is spot on, all but the odd word! I watched the first episode and thought it was awesome! But then again, how many first episodes are awesome, only to be followed by a totally average rest-of-season? But I am so happy to say that I was wrong! I am up to episode 10 and each one is better than the last! It's not your average knuckle head biker show! It follows the trials and tribulations of each and every cast member! I really can't recommend Sons Of Anarchy enough! 10/10
