Sons of Anarchy – S01E13 – The Revelator Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

After everything that went down last week, I couldn't wait to see how the first season of Sons of Anarchy would end. I had my hopes on Jax doing something big and get make some changes around Samcro and judging by what I saw of "The Revelator", changes are a coming. After losing his wife, Opie seemed to be in a decent mood. He was quite subdued, but that's fairly normal for this character. He doesn't usually speak up unless ... Read More

Sons of Anarchy – S01E12 – The Sleep of Babies Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Wow. I think that word more than any other can sum up this episode. I knew that however this story went, it would be bad, but I didn't expect it to go down like it did. Last week's episode showed that it was decided that Opie was going to be killed by Tig, Samcro's Sergeant at Arms. I didn't agree with the decision for obvious reasons but felt that Tig should have reneged on the agreement after what Opie did ... Read More

Sons of Anarchy – S01E11 – Capybara Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

With Bobby and Opie targeted last week, they didn't bring them in until this week. The ATF put the screws to Opie in more ways than one. Instead of just threatening him, the ATF made it look like Opie turned on the club, selling out Samcro. That was pretty much what this entire episode was about. There weren't many subplots in "Capybara." We did get to meet Opie's mother, Mary, however. She made it pretty clear to Donna ... Read More

Sons of Anarchy – S01E10 – Better Half Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

After falling behind on Sons of Anarchy reviews, I am back with this episode from a few weeks ago. It only seemed natural for the ATF to put some pressure on the women in Samcro. Agent Stahl is one tough cookie and she brought it this week while also getting some back. Cherry didn't last very long. With the women being targeted, she found herself in jail, ready to be moved for arson and grand theft due to an incident ... Read More

Sons of Anarchy – S01E09 – Hell Forward Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

What happened last week had a lot of impact on what took place here. The attempted hit on Clay and Ernie came back to hurt the Mayans. The failed hits cost another Mayan his life. A lot of this first season has showed the struggle Jax has had. He's really not into all of the violence that the club has been involved with. This week, Jax had to deal with the fact that he killed the ATF agent. ... Read More

Sons of Anarchy – S01E08 – The Pull Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

It's been a few weeks in the making, but it finally came time for Samcro to pay the IRA for the guns. We've known that Samcro has been a little short in the money department, so the guys had to do a little quick fundraising. They had to hit up the porn queen for $55,000 but she was all business-like and wanted 5% interest in return. Although Gemma was pissed about it, she didn't have much of a choice and accepted ...

Sons of Anarchy – S01E07 – Old Bones Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

The antics surrounding ATF Agent Cole finally came to a close this week, though he left a mark on Jax in the process. How much truth Clay and company reveal at any one particular time is never entirely clear. Truth and lies are always a big part of this show. Samcro needs to keep its secrets, but some of them were unburied when an excavation crew came upon three bodies along a highway. Clay's initial story was that they were ... Read More

Sons of Anarchy – S01E06 – AK-47 Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

With all the gun-running going on, it was only a matter of time until the proverbial shit hit the fan. Their deal with Nate put them in hot water when more feds came into town, leaving Jax with quite a mess to clean up. I felt sorry for Half-Sack when Gemma cornered him in the garage. He's no match for her. It didn't take long for Gemma to get pissed at Clay for sleeping with that girl in Nevada. ... Read More

Sons of Anarchy – S01E05 – Giving Back Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

"Giving Back" continued the action we saw in the previous episode with a fairly brief prison fight. As it turns out, Sons of Anarchy has made a deal to protect a guy who has apparently stolen $400,000 from the Chinese, as their accountant. When thrown in jail, the Chinese inside the jail came after him. Clay knew he could get a cut by protecting Chucky, but didn't quite realize what he was getting into. Chucky's little quirk was that he's ... Read More

Sons of Anarchy – S01E04 – Patch Over Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Wow, "Patch Over" was a fairly action-packed episode. I'm finally starting to like some of the characters. The prospect, Half-sack is a fairly level-headed guy who got himself in a bad spot when he made a rather immature comment regarding he and Gemma, for which, Clay put him in his place in a rather unusual way. That was pretty cold. The writers haven't gotten too much into Jax's father's writing in the last episode or two. But "Patch Over" ... Read More
