Frequently Bought Together
Sons of Anarchy is an adrenalised drama with darkly comedic undertones that explores a notorious outlaw motorcycle club’s (MC) desire to protect its livelihood while ensuring that their simple, sheltered town of Charming, California remains exactly that: charming. The MC must confront threats from drug dealers, corporate developers and overzealous law officers. Behind the MC’s familial lifestyle and legally thriving automotive shop is a ruthless, thriving illegal arms business. A series about the seduction of money, power and blood.
This season begins with SAMCRO feeling powerless over Abel’s kidnapping, especially Jax, whose grief sends him into deeper turmoil over his future with the club. The search for Abel sends our guys to Ireland, where Jax faces not only the Irish Republican Army but an untold personal history as well. Meanwhile, still on the lam, Gemma is hit with unexpected news and risks her freedom to deal with it.

Those who have watched the first two seasons and were left hanging after the big cliffhanger of Season Two (Jax's baby Abel being kidnapped by the IRA), be prepared for a drastic change of pace. Season Three is fast, very fast. The action never stops, there are constant obstacles and mess-ups sending the characters to different, unforeseen directions. You will be glued to the edge of your seat right until the very last minute of the last episode. Be prepared for constant surprises - nothing will go the way you expect it.
In Season Three, most of the action moves from Charming to Belfast - and at this point you will need to humour some of the cast's attempt at Northern Irish accents and let your disbelief be suspended. The writing is so good that you can easily ignore them.
Three seasons into 'Sons', writer Kurt Sutter has really developed the characters so well that they are really real and not the usual cardboard cutouts seen in a lot of TV shows these days. Jax, played by British actor Charlie Hunman (whose American accent is, by all accounts, superb), emerges as a real tortured soul, torn apart by the abduction of his child and the toxicity of the Club's lifestyle. He loves his girlfriend Tara but he doesn't want to ruin her life and her career as a doctor. The Club is his life but then again, he also sees how his father's ideals, around which SAMCRO was built, have been gradually corrupted since his death.
The other character that for me, makes the show, is Katey Seagal's Gemma - Jax's mother.Read more ›
The only downside being the Irish accents, they range from unbelievable to horrendous. Any viewer from the UK or Ireland will just have to curl their toes and try to suspend disbelief.
All in all thoroughly worth it.
It's undoubtedly a brave move to relocate the action from small town Charming to N Ireland but what probably seemed like a great idea in the writer's room simply hasn't translated well onto screen, and makes for less-than-gripping viewing.
The main problem is the very slow story development, particularly when compared with the electric pace of the second season. There is only one main story arc (resolving the kidnapping) which really limits the opportunity to develop the main characters. The setting is contrived. It all feels a bit awkward and forced and the show struggles to reach any momentum. It's only for the final few episodes of the season (when the Sons return home to Charming) that the action again starts to flow naturally and thankfully the pace picks up.
At its heart, Sons of Anarchy is driven by a fun cops and robbers dynamic. The skillfully-drawn characters and their development (Clay, Jaks, Gemma, Tara) add depth. We get involved and the line between good and evil gets blurred. It's compelling stuff but ultimately Season 3 suffers because it changes this template.
Here's hoping Season 4 will return the Sons (and especially the writers) to more familiar ground!
Unfortunately, the programme makers seemed to have gone out of their way to let us down this time. The whole Irish thing is totally unconvincing. I think they just told the actors to put on any Irish accent they could manage, regardless of the region, and that's what they got. No two accents are the same, and I think some of them are pretending to be Leprechauns, just for a laugh. It's totally cringeworthy.
I believe they actually went to Ireland to film some of the scenes, so I don't know why they went and spoiled it by making some of the outdoor scenes in California. I don't think Belfast has ever seen such a beautiful clear blue sky, or such loud crickets in the night.
Their dealing with the border guards was a laughably poor scene, and like the whole adventure, it was just not convincing in the slightest.
The only saving grace of this whole series were the female characters. They seem to be overtaking the men for storylines and character development...
Note:This was watched on Amazon Prime Video; picture and sound quality both very good.
