Mayans M.C.: Season 1 Reviews

October 2, 2018
There's no one to root for and nothing to connect to so it's hard to get excited. Who needs to watch grown men playing medieval war in California?

There are also a number of callbacks to the original series that will appeal to "Sons" fans. But while "Mayans" may be set in a post-Jax Teller world, the show hasn't yet found a place in it.

Mayans M.C. seems uninterested in exploring these timely sociopolitical themes, instead telling a tale of antiheroes that feels more like a throwback than a spinoff.

Scrape away the gore and you'll get to the main problem with Mayans M.C. - it jams so many subplots into its opening two episodes as to make it nearly impossible to connect to any of the characters in a meaningful way.

Patterned after Sons of Anarchy but missing what made that show great (namely, a Gemma), Mayans is a pale imitation that's one big missed opportunity.

After almost two hours of Mayans M.C., I still miss the Tellers, and I'm worried I will at the end of the season, too.

Already been here, done this. I am exhausted.

Mayans MC finds the brand slightly invigorated by a new cultural context, but fails utterly to replicate or even emulate much of what Sons of Anarchy actually did best.

It's a big cast, and it's no sin if not everyone pops at first, but that nobody stands out early on is worrisome - particularly where JD Pardo is concerned.

The biggest problem is that the universe created here by Sutter and James feels more like the product of research plus flights of fancy than of a burning need to communicate lived experience.
