Did You Know?


Kurt Sutter has stated several times that the homeless woman was always meant to be ambiguous and that the audience can make up their own interpretation for her. Conflicting information has been found that Kurt Sutter said he wrote the character as an embodiment of Jesus Christ, but tried to leave it ambiguous. It's still open to personal interpretation of each individual. See more »

Loved every second of it...
29 November 2008 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

This is without a doubt the best TV show I've seen in ages. There is nothing about this show that one can't like.Every character is well defined and has it's own boundaries. The story line has enough twists to keep you on the edge of your seats through out the episode. And it may come across as strange, but you don't wait for the next episode because you wanna know what happens next (as in Prison break etc) you wait because you absolutely love the show. I envy the respect the S.O.A have for their members and what they are willing to do for one another.

All in all, this is how you make a freaking entertaining show. Kudos to FX!!!
