When the Mayans, a Latino gang led by Marcus Álvarez (Emilio Rivera), steal their stockpile of weapons and burn their warehouse, SAMCRO is placed in a difficult position, as they've already taken payment for the guns from the 1-9ers, a powerful African-American gang led by Laroy Wayne (Tory Kittles). As SAMCRO president Clarence 'Clay' Morrow (Ron Perlman) plots their revenge, his step-son and club vice-president Jackson 'Jax' Teller (Charlie Hunnam) finds an old document written by his dead father John 'JT' Teller (voiced by Nicholas Guest), one of the Sons' founders. In it, JT writes about the direction in which he wanted SAMCRO to go; nothing like the gun-running direction in which Clay and his wife Gemma (Katey Sagal), Jax's mother, has taken them. When they locate where the Mayans are hiding their weaponry, Clay calls upon Jax to bring his friend Harry 'Opie' Winston (Ryan Hurst) back into the fold. However, Opie has recently been released from jail after refusing to testify ... Written by Bertaut

Stay away, its awful
27 August 2015 | by wisdomnow2000See all my reviews

Watched this for the first time today, the pilot episode on Netflix. I am not feeling this at all. The acting is atrocious. The story telling childish and transparent. I have no idea how this has a rating of 8.7. An 8.7 rating is usually indicative of better programming. But I suppose the voters who liked it were the ones giving it that rating. The acting is bland, monosyllabic and just plain bad. And there's 7 seasons of this. Ron Perlman is Ron Perlman; Meh. Charlie Hannum is not. Katy Sagal was a stiff Peg. There just isn't really all of that that I can give a good review on. It really is astounding that this got the high rating that it did, I suppose bikers loved it.
