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

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.
