the best pilot in a long time!
29 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This single episode sums up the entire show, gang wars, bike journeys and brawls. Truly one of the greatest shows of all time. The acting in this program is phenomenal. I wasn't expecting much from Katey Segal if i'm honest, because after her comedy roll in 8 SIMPLE RULES, i didn't think she could have pulled of the whole drama thing, but i was pleasantly surprised with a hard-hitting, Golden Globe winning performance. Charlie Hunnam plays the vice president of a biker gang, a part which was brilliantly written. My Favourite character, CHIBS, played by Tommy Flanagan, is a hilarious part well casted. Not forgetting Ron Pearlman's worryingly convincing roll as the gangs president. So a good opening for a good show ;)
