Well, he did get stripped of his Tour de France wins. What else does he have to live for?

Very strange, and very sad. He'd been a pretty reliable character actor for years.

The article writer and the editor should be fired. Reading it gave me a headache.

Caption under his picture: Johnny Lewis, an actor who had roles on 'Sons of Anarchy,' and 'The O.C .' was killed Wednesday and was found dead with a 70-year-old woman, according to TMZ.

Article:
Johnny Lewis, an actor who had roles on "Sons of Anarchy," and "The O.C." was killed Wednesday and was found dead with a 81-year-old woman, according to TMZ.

Sons of Anarchy looks interesting, and I need something to watch while waiting for the final episodes of Breaking Bad.

How would you Farkers rate Sons of Anarchy?
 
2012-09-27 11:36:45 AM  
This is very strange. I just watched the "pilot" episode of this series for the very first time last night after getting tired of people telling me how good it was and how I needed to watch it and it would tide me over until Breaking Bad comes back. And so it's only as of last night that I would have understood this headline. I almost feel responsible.

It's no Breaking Bad, that's for sure. And it hasn't completely hooked me yet. But I liked the pilot enough to give at least the next few episodes a chance.

I'd say it's worth watching. My gal loves it. It started out pretty good but I found the more it went on the more it bacame kind of "Soap Opera-like".

Not a terrible way to wait for BB. But I think Walking Dead is more interesting if you haven't been watching that already.

It's entertaining enough but it constantly repeats itself. This season we have another wealthy, powerful bad guy (last time he was a white racist, this time he's black) who's willing to do really reprehensible shiat (rape Gemma/burn a young woman alive) to get what he wants

SPOILERS

And leaving Clay alive at the end of last season really bothered me.
/SPOILER

And last weeks "twist" wasn't so much a twist as it was telegraphed for the last 2 weeks.


So I guess you're right.

More happens on it than on Breaking Bad, which builds to a slow burn and massive game changing events. In SOA, they stretch the bonds of believability to the breaking point occasionally, so you don't get as invested in it as you might on BB.

SOA is fun, but occasionally gets very dark. It is better than regular network TV, for certain, but it isn't a Deadwood, Breaking Bad or The Shield.

Just fast forward through any scenes about baby crap, Gemma and Tara arguing, any part with Jax and Tara in the same scene, and the five minute song at the end of every episode and it's a pretty solid show.

My goodness the hate for the show escalated quickly. Granted, the season 4 finale was ass, but considering how immediately afterwards perception became reality with the Fast N Furious ATF case... I'll give it a pass.

Personally I think it peaked at the season 3 finale, the 4th season was hit and miss, and season 5 is picking up quickly. You can tell Clay can't actively get involved in the club anymore, but he's got time to plan now, and I'm sure he's got a hand in a lot of things happening to the club now. Now I'm just curious if this is indeed the last season, or if they'll stretch it out to a 'bad end for everyone' season 6 like The Shield... which you know is coming.

As for Half-Sack... well let's see, he beats his elderly landlord to death, beats a few other people with a 2x4, then climbs up to the roof and falls to his death. Yeah... I bet real money he was higher than giraffe pussy when he died.

I just finished Season 2 on Netflix last night. Overall, I'd give it 3.5/5 so far. It has its entertaining moments and is much better than the majority of stuff out there. But it is starting to become "meh" for me.

The music selection and covers by the Forest Rangers are also exceptional.

The show is good enough that I'll actually watch it on TV, but not good enough that I'll forego other plans just to watch it. It does have a few stupid moments (last season's finale, for instance) and some brilliant ones (the season finale before that), but other than that its pretty solid. The only thing that bugs me about it is how few 'wins' the protagonists get. Especially in the later seasons, it feels like they're just constantly getting shiat on. Don't know if that's part of the whole Hamlet thing or not.

The show was renewed for seasons 5 and 6, and Sutter would like to end it after 7. If ratings stay as good as they are, I don't see how FX would let them go without a big, hyped seventh and final season.

You have been very misled - SoA is most assuredly not going to hit your Breaking Bad fix. I really enjoy SoA, but it is a fun, action soap opera, nothing more.

Actiony + better plotting you might check out Justified if you haven't - it is wrapped in flashy of-the-week paper, but becomes very satisfying on examination.

7 seasons would also put the episode count high enough for syndicators to pay up (I know 100 episodes is the traditional magic number, but that's been changing over the years). That's where the big money is for the show creators.

Overall, I thought the first 2 seasons were great. The third had a weak start and the Ireland stuff went on a few episodes too long, but it finished strong, and the fourth season was very good, despite the cop outs in the finale.

Funny thing is how much of the Deadwood cast they've used so far. Maybe that means they're setting up Ian McShane to be the villain to end all villains in the final season.

I know the magic syndication number is generally between 80 and 100 episodes, but then you take into account stuff like The Munsters, which was only 65 episodes, and the WB Cartoon model of 65 and done, so networks can air one episode per day for 13 weeks before starting the run over.

So they could probably get by with 5 or 6 seasons' worth, but 7 would make it perfect for some cable network.

/there would probably be too much editing for regular syndication, but something like A&E's sopranos run would make sense.

Sons of Anarchy is great if you think The Sopranos was a brilliant show. Every week there's a different illegitimate business that the same 4 guys have always been in charge of, yet they always seem to have time to get drunk, party, fark 3 different women and murder people. Also all the secondary, normal characters never cotton to the fact that their lives revolve almost completely around a handful of scumbag gangsters.

Oh and there are motorbikes and fistfights. If ten minutes go by and you didn't see someone get punched, shot at, or do a wheelie, you changed the channel by accident.

I find it funny that people are saying SOA is soap opera-like in comparison to BB. I find BB just as soap opera-like, it's just that there are more WTF moments is all. The writing on BB IS better overall, but SOA has it's moments. SOA is worth watching (well, so far, although it did start slow and have a slump in the plot, it picked back up and is giving me just as many thrills as BB now).

SOA had sort of a sucky season in there thanks to a few episodes/plot twists, but so did BB. I still want the hour back of my life after watching The Fly episode for instance.

SOA started slow, picked up, slowed down, got a little silly for a minute, and is turning it around now that they've been renewed for two more seasons. Remember, if you are writing for a show and you don't know if next season is going to be the last or not, you have to set the plot(s) up so anything can happen. Both shows did well at this; with the shiatty season of SOA, they didn't know if the the next was going to be the last or not. So they left a lot of things open.

My lady and I took to calling the show White Fight Motorbike. Then the Ireland season (seriously?! Pipes mixed with your opening theme? Wouldn't it have just been cheaper to air an announcement, "If you're not white, come back in an hour.") happened, and we were gone.

It's one of the best shows on TV...

Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, Justified...
Those three shows really rock consistently.

Each is really good for what they are about, what genres they adhere to...

I don't find any one of the "believable" though...no way a cop shoots as many people as Raylan Givens does and remains a cop...no way Walter White's brazen attitude doesn't get him killed pretty much first or second season...and of course, no way a biker club runs a small town in northern California killing whoever they need to whenever they need to...

But that's why it's on TV...
TV's an escape from reality. That's why these shows are labled "fiction".

Glitchwerks: Sons of Anarchy looks interesting, and I need something to watch while waiting for the final episodes of Breaking Bad.

How would you Farkers rate Sons of Anarchy?


On a scale of 1 to awesome? Super awesome.

OK, SoA thread.... on the actor's death, my money is on Bath Salts or Spice, too.

As for the show... POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT:

Everybody thinks Clay killed John Teller. It's obvious he DIDN'T. Gemma was sleeping with everybody in the club (and Unser), and got Lowell Sr to kill John. Clay cleaned it up, so tying loose ends up Gemma ended up with him when the dust settled.

The whole time, it's been HER manipulations that have precipitated all of this. She sees herself as the "Queen".

When you realize Gemma was the one who actually plotted and executed John's murder (with Lowell Sr), everything fits neatly into place, including Lowell Sr.'s betrayal. The damaging letters probably related John's suspicions that Gemma was sleeping around with more than Clay.

/Sorry, just had to get that off my chest.

IMO, Sons is worth watching, but the following basic/expanded cable shows are better:

Justified
Breaking Bad
Psych
The Walking Dead
Damages

And that isn't accounting for the premium channel choices available.

Still, it's enjoyable and better than most dreck on the big four.

peewinkle: I find it funny that people are saying SOA is soap opera-like in comparison to BB


Breaking Bad is a black comedy - you can see that in the absurdity of Walt's body count. Breaking Bad is never afraid of gong over the top - for a reason.

Sons of Anarchy is more of a drama about family, with a bit of a modern spin on Westerns. It attempts to portray the protagonists in a constant fog of moral ambiguity with some attempt at "gritty subcultural realism" (though framed through dramatic presentation, of course).

Both, like so many shows these days, have very long story arcs.

In Sons Of Anarchy, you root for Jax to turn his club around to the path of righteousness, In Breaking Bad, you wait to see what Walt is going to pull next... even Jesse's character wasn't intended to be a central character (he was supposed to be killed off early in the show). The only guy you really should be rooting for in BB is Hank, but all we do is make fun of him for missing the obvious until it comes to him as he's taking a dump.

Update:

Johnny Lewis murdered his landlady and then fell to his death -- but he also viciously took the life of the landlady's cat by beating it to death and DISMEMBERING it in the process.

Law enforcement sources tell us Lewis went wild on landlady Catherine Davis' cat ... kicking and beating the life out of the animal and "tearing it apart." Law enforcement tells us Lewis did NOT use a weapon, but rather his bare hands and feet.




Just in time for Caturday?

My sister:

(seasons 1-3): "eww, these guys are dirty and gross and I bet they smell really bad since they spend all day smoking in the garage or the club or are outside sweating on greasy motorcycles"

(season 4): "Jax cut his hair! OMG he is soooooooooooooooooo hot!"

so clearly, Season 4 marked a big improvement in the show.

Interesting theory. I would have called B.S. prior to this season's opener. But she's gotten pretty whorey so far this season, next thing is she starts blowing Unser or something. If she ends up with someone other than Smitty, I'd be inclinded to start believing your theory.

And to the original question, I like the show. It's had some ups and downs, but after seeing my favorite character offed, I'm sucked back in just to see what happens next.

Tax Boy: Glitchwerks: Sons of Anarchy looks interesting, and I need something to watch while waiting for the final episodes of Breaking Bad.

How would you Farkers rate Sons of Anarchy?

season 1: pretty good
season 2: not bad
season 3: OMG this show is full-on retarded.
season 4: hey, it's good again.
season 5: pretty good so far

first 3 seasons are on the netflix. i'd expect they'll add 4 at some point since it's on dvd now.


Pretty much THIS. There has yet to be a year worthy of the promise made during the final minutes of the first season finale. Instead there's been lots of soap opera bullshiat and consistently inconsistent characters that pass around an idiot ball based on the writer needs the script to go. The last couple of episodes of the third year were worth watching, and most of year four was downright good, and then the finale happened. Year five started off alright, then Opie.... Well, right now there are three Sons still alive that shouldn't be and the number of likeable ones are dropping like flies. At this point I hope this year ends the show with Jax burning down the club and getting Tara and the boys far, far away. Oh, and Chibbs going back to ride with SAMBEL.
