Sons of Anarchy Season 1 Ep 1 Review


The local biker gang run the town of Charming and they don’t intend for that to change any time soon. But member Jax is about to undergo a change of mind as he learns that his late father who founded the gang had a different idea about the group’s motives. Jax also has to deal with the premature birth of his son due to his ex-wife’s drug abuse.

Katey Sagal (of ‘Married with Children’ and ‘Futurama’) is Jax’s mom and she’s got her own agenda. She’s unsentimental about her late husband, is sleeping with Clay (Ron Perlman of ‘Hellboy’) the current biker leader and she scares Jax’s ex-wife into a possibly fatal drug overdose.

This was okay. Jax enjoys his lifestyle but is questioning it. He has a son now and he reads his father’s manifesto which says that his father envisioned a group of hippies on Harleys not outlaws. But the Sons of Anarchy gang is a family tradition and bonds between members are strong. Outside of the gang Jax bonds with Tara, one of the doctor’s overseeing his son’s care.

There is a bizarre final sequence set to ‘I can’t help falling in love with you’ and Sprague Grayden of ‘Jericho’ has a small role as one biker’s put upon wife. This is an interesting show.

Best Lines:
“Everytime I see you sitting at this table, I do a double take.”
“That’s probably just the weed pop.”

“Remorse is a dangerous thing

“I’m not the same girl I was ten years ago.”
“I am.”
