Holy SHIT, Sons of Anarchy?

Post by Mother Goose » Mon Sep 07, 2009 10:26 pm

How did I just get the memo on this show tonight when I found out Goose DVR'd a few episodes? What a badass series. Watched two tonight, I believe we have the finale of the current season to watch before the season premiere tomorrow night.

The Sopranos on Motorcycles.

Don't want to be dick, but this show is kind of lame. Its definitely not badass, in my opinion. Sorry. Just have to speak my mind because I am drunk.

Sopranos on Motorcycles.
(oh wait, did I say that all ready?)

Probably illustrates real MCs the same way that the Sopranos illustrated real mobsters.

Then again, who the hell am I to say I know anything about that shit.

Doesn't work for me because I loved The Sopranos. Sons of A is just so goddamn phony and contrived. Its the exact fake garbage that Hunter Thompson warned of in 'Hell's Angels'.

K, I honestly don't know anything about mobsters. Not saying I didn't like 'The Sopranos', just sayin....

And by sayin' I'm pretty sure I agree with you.

Very entertaining

You also have to love the sense of brotherhood they have amongst the club.

HST ran with the Angels, as did Tom Wolfe. The Angels, I'm assuming, probably don't allow many people who say 'hey, i'm doing a show about an mc, can i tag along?' to run with them. i think they've been burned a few times by atf agents infiltrating, so they might be a bit gunshy. therefore, creative license has to be taken and accuracy (i'm assuming you road w/the angels too, right?) has to be developed by whatever sources are available closest to the source. sorry gotta go, electric company's about to start.

Alright, legitimacy questions aside, that show is just kinda fucking gay. Sorry.

I like it for the most part. But I ride a motorcycle, own guns and like hot women. Nuff said.

sorry man, i was just being a dick. i think this opens up a broader question though; if you're talking authenticity, what gives Sopranos (not saying it wasn't a great show, because it was) the edge? if you want gay shows (sometimes literally), there are a fuck-ton more gay than this. as far as contrived....selling illegal guns, owning a strip club and a bike shop as fronts? how the shit is that contrived? last time i checked, most organized mc's (i.e. angels, mongols, pagans, etc.) weren't going into buying up foreclosed properties and flipping them for a profit. they stick to what they know how to do.

sorry to go off, but calling this show gay is like calling martin scorsese an 'ok' director. is this series the second coming of christ? no. i just find it very entertaining and i'm willing to discuss.
