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. Written by Pia

User Reviews

Rare treat guys-a long running show that is great throughout and ends well!
8 December 2020 | by sd-61275See all my reviews

The show grew on me from the 2nd half of season 1. Then its consistently good throughout. I only came across it on Netflix like 6 years after it finished! The idea of following a biker gang did not appeal to me at all and season 1 didn't reel me in straight away. To be honest the high reviews for all 7 seasons kept me going. And I am glad I did!

There is action, suspense, drama and an underlying story holding the show together. They put a lot of thought into this series. In the end I would say I became invested in the characters and their story arcs. Really good acting by basically everyone. Katey Sagal and Charlie Hunnam stand out for sure though.

The only downside I think is that some of the violence can get a bit far fetched. Then again we are looking into the world of outlaws so you never know!
