"Sons of Anarchy" review by Suzanne
Airs Tuesdays 10/9 c on FX

When Sons of Anarchy first debuted, I read about it and figured I would not like it. It is not my kind of show. I knew it would feature trashy people doing bad things. I was right. However, it is also a very well-written and -acted soap opera that quickly sucks you in to the stories and the lives of the characters.

FX recently sent me some disks for the episodes this season. I had never seen the show before; I'd just heard that it was very good and that it was about a motorcycle gang. Even though it's the third season, it didn't take me very long to catch up by watching the episodes. I easily learned who was who and what was going on.

It's a very good show, and if you love drama, you will surely love this one. The only caveat is that even though these are likable people, they are not really good people. They break the law. They are violent and like to use their fists (and sometimes guns). It's not quite "The Sopranos", though. They are just people who've had a hard life and chosen this type of "freedom" of being in a club and riding their bikes (and all of the things that go with that, both bad and good). They try keep the peace in the small town of Charming, but they often make things worse.

The actor who plays Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is gorgeous and a fine actor. He's kind of a combination of Russell Crowe and Heath Ledger. All of the actors are great, but he's great to look at as well. Not that he is only eye candy because he really is a fine actor, too. Jax grew up in the gang but is torn about continuing.

The only problem with this kind of show is that in order to make the protagonists sympathetic (since they are, essentially, not good people), they have to make them go against other people who are even worse. So they have fights with white supremacist gangs, Mexican drug gangs, and the IRA! It's not as ridiculous as it sounds. It's essentially a very realistic show, for a soap opera. Check it out!
