Quotes

Jackson 'Jax' Teller: [In his journal] It's hard not to hate. People. Things. Institutions. When they break your spirit and take pleasure in watching you bleed. Hate... is the only feeling that makes sense. But, I know what hate does to a man. It tears him apart. Turns him into something he's not. Something he'd promised himself he'd never become. That's what I need to tell you. To let you know how hard I'm trying not to cave under the weight of all the awful things I feel in my heart. Sometimes my life feels like a ...

Then There is This One
18 January 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

There are good episode of Sons of Anarchy. There are great episodes of Sons of Anarchy and then there is this one. It is one of the best. Walter Goggins (from The Shield) guest stars and is outstanding in his cameo role as Venus Van Damme. The other characters Juice (Theo Rossi) and Tig (Kim Coates) also flex their comedic muscles . It's not all laughs though with Gemma (Katey Segal) still struggling. Her ongoing relationship with Tara really starts to deteriorate setting up some story lines we won't see for a whole season. Eli and his wife share a lovely lunch. When a character is happy this is usually not a good sign for the actor playing the part in this show and we see why in the later moments. There is a confronting little irony at the end as Kurt Sutter continues to push the boundaries (check his Twitter account if you don't believe me). It's a little shorter than some of the other but so shut off the rest of the world for 45 minutes of pure drama and entertainment. You won't find this kind of television excellence very often.
