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.

According to an interview with Kurt Sutter
, the pilot episode was entirely shot with actor Scott Glenn
in the role of Clay Morrow. After deciding to go in a different direction with the character, the role was re-cast with Ron Perlman
and Clay's scenes were re-shot. Also, in the pilot there is still a scene where you can spot Scott Glenn as Clay, after they blow up the warehouse at the end of the episode there is a shot of the Sons running away from the explosion. Scott Glenn can be seen in the foreground and you can also see Emilio Rivera
in the group as he was originally cast as a member of SAMCRO but then re-cast as the leader of their rival gang; The Mayans. See more
Throughout the series, several officers of the San Joaquin Sheriffs Office are referred to as "Sheriffs" by criminal justice personnel and others throughout the series. They should actually be referred to as "Deputy". A Sheriff is a single individual that is elected by a governing body and has deputies that carry out law enforcement duties. When Lt Roosevelt and Lt Jarry refer to themselves as "Sheriff", it is an obvious mistake. See more
