Storyline

Sons of Anarchy, aka SAMCRO, is a motorcycle club that operates both illegal and legal businesses in the small town of Charming. They combine gun-running and a garage, plus involvement in porn film. Clay, the president, likes it old school and violent; while Jax, his stepson and the club's VP, has thoughts about changing the way things are, based on his dead father's journal. Their conflict has effects on both the club and their personal relationships. Written by Pia

Trivia

The first and last episodes of season 3 are titled SO and NS, respectively, which, when put together, spells out SONS. This is also a reference to the two rings Jax is frequently seen wearing. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Jackson 'Jax' Teller: [voiceover, reading his fathers memoirs] A true outlaw finds the balance between the passion in his heart and the reason in his mind. The outcome is the balance of might and right.

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent
9 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

FX has done it again. Another excellent show that we sit on the edge of our seats during, and wait impatiently for all week. If the common opinion that shows improve the longer they run rings true for this one, then I predict a perfect rating by season 3 and it will be in the running for all time great. The timing couldn't be more perfect with the great "The Shield" coming to a timely close. Sons of Anarchy takes on a classic Hamlet premise with a dead dad under potentially shady circumstances, a wavering prince, (or in this case vice president of the biker club), wondering what the right path for him is. Should he take the more philosophical path of his deceased predecessor or the hard core gangster approach of his mothers current husband and president of the S. O. A. biker club. The first season is only half over and my wife and I are already dreading the wait for season two. A special kudos for Katey Sagal, I didn't expect her to be able to shed the memory of Peggy Bundy of "Married With Children" but she has been able to create a strong Queen of the club character that is easy to love and hate all at once. Find the time for this one, It's like a white trash Sopranos with a story line that actually goes places.
