Yeah, still a gripping series and twists and turns abound but I confess that, round about half-way through, the implacable squalour of the club's life and times was starting to get on my nerves. You're hard pushed to believe there's a single honest person in the whole of the USA, to go by what happens here and I am starting to be irritated by the complete self-absorption of every single major character! Apparently, Sutter's putting the whole thing to bed in the next season and it's probably about time, to be honest.
It's been a good ride but it's had its day. Don't let me put you off buying this, if you liked the previous seasons, you'll like this - as usual, no one is safe from being written out with extreme prejudice and blood and guts decorate every episode - in fact, I'd venture to say this is the most violent season of the lot and that's saying something. I think I've just lost any character to identify with.
Watched every season back to back so far. I read somewhere that it was described as having a Shakespearean influence to the whole series. It certainly has, Macbeth, King Lear and Hamlet rolled into one. Part of me would like more Motorbike detail and less guns, but the acting is world class and the character development as good as I have ever seen on screen. The thoughtful titles to each episode are interesting. The spiritual and ethical situations for all the characters show the challenges that come to us despite our good intentions. It is written by those who really know a thing or two about life. Impressive. The only flaw is that the Sons ride stock out of the showroom machines! Doesn't quite match up! I strongly recommend watching the whole set of seasons from Season1 to appreciate the development. Unashamedly addicted.
So awesome, especially as UK TV have stopped showing it i was desperate andf bought this instantly.
This truly is one of the best dramas since Sopranos, but completely different in its execution, where mafia lore and practise are reasonably well documented. SOA treads new ground and develops its own mythos.
All of the main characters are back with their own little twists and side plots, even the return of Walt Goggins in drag. Plenty of drama, action and violence.
One of the best yet. The mix of ordinary, content domesticity conflicted with the violence, lies and betrayals of the gang life along with more depth to the characters made this the most moving of the seasons. The characters dont seem to act out of character, there are no random actions to move the story on that clash with what you would expect from the characters. Some of the acting is very good, you can see what Gemma, Jacks and Tara are thinking without it needing to be spelled out. A mix of the blatant and the subtle that I like.
Absolutely LOVE this programme... if you haven't seen it yet you MUST!!
It took me awhile to get around to watch it but once I started I was hooked!!
Love Jax, his character is brill!! All the series are entertaining, full of twists and turns, the loyalty, friendship, family, love, revenge, murder, torcher, sex, guns, drugs .. its got everything, the only bad thing is that is finished!! :(
If you are going to watch season 6 then you've probably been with SOA from the start... You won't be disappointed. I thought this was the best season by far and can't wait for season 7. I'm gutted that 7 will be the last but glad that it won't go on forever and lose its brilliance. There are some real OMG moments that will leave you reeling and desperate to watch the next episode (even though it's late and you've got to get up for work in a few hours!) The last 3 episodes were particularly good, the build up to the end was just awesome. I'm a huge SOA fan so I say watch and enjoy the ride.
I watched seasons 1 to 5 and was looking forward to watching the new series on Five USA and discovered, quite late in the day, that seasons 6 and 7 had not been commissioned. Went straight to Amazon, my one stop shop, ordered it, it arrived a couple of days later. Watched Season 6 during the Christmas break. Enjoyed every fantastic minute of it. Drama doesn't get much better than this (and Breaking Bad). I won't say what happens as I hate spoilers but fans be prepared for the unexpected. So glad that there is a season 7.
Just started watching this season and am so loving it.. It seems to be getting more violent.. and I guess it will all end in tears. Really engaging with characters... still wondering why this series has not picked up more awards as it really great... I watched Breaking Bad last year but I prefer this... Sad that season 7 will be the last. I am loving the music as well, and also the jewellry the ladies wear which is apparently all made by Jaxs' real life partner.
One for the fans! The Sopranos on bikes....same production values, perfect casting, and what a guy Kurt Sutter must be. The dialogue and storylines are realistic and never veer into the unbelievable. I was a bit squeamish about the (happily, not many) torture scenes but felt they were necessary to the plot. One of the greatest dramatic series made in my lifetime, in my opinion.
