Audience Reviews for Sons of Anarchy: Season 1

  • Jul 28, 2021
    Great first season which has many moments that foreshadow things to come that often gets missed upon the first viewing. A good solid start to a series that really has you connecting with the characters and draws you into the story.

    My absolute FAVORITE SHOW OF ALL TIME!!! I have seen this entire 7-season show more times than most would admit. Was drawn in when I heard Hunnam was hand-selected by Sam Taylor-Johnson to play Christian Grey. I had seen him in Abandon years before and wanted to catch another performance even though I was certain a show about an outlaw biker gang would not interest me. I turned on the Pilot episode and barely came up for air binge-watching the first FOUR seasons free on Netflix. After a few seconds of thinking I would not pay for Season Five I was processing my credit card. Then, I had to WAIT for the Sixth Season to air the following Fall! I told all my friends about the show and when they wanted to watch I had them over for binge sessions so we could watch together. That was a repeat occurrence many times! Why the obsession???? Everything! The story, the writing, the acting, the directing, AND the MUSIC!!!!! Seriously, this show has it all -- and there's an underlying dark humor that enables you to get through some of the gruesome stuff. Hunnam's performance is mesmerizing and brilliant -- and Katey Sagal is amazing! The rest of the cast - including guest stars are so good! Kurt Sutter is a genius and his ability to draw you into caring about people who do some really bad stuff is a matter of great writing and character development. This first season will lure you in with the Pilot episode and it just keeps getting better from there! This is a must watch and each time I saw it again I picked up new nuances. You know a show is great when you never get tired of watching it!

    binge watched to season 6 so far. Feels like the writer took a hit of speed then finished the script off on his way to the studios. Derivative tripe........but ya know....lockdown.

    Best tv show since Breaking Bad. All the cast were spot on in their roles and the emotions this show takes you through never lets up. Jax Teller is a man who is so conflicted, so dangerous but also so loyal and loving. You can't but help falling in love with him or to hope that things work out for him. But he encounters obstacles at every corner. The ensemble cast works perfectly together and although it is a violent show it's brutally realistic. Absolutely amazing to the point of being perfect.

    I'm thoroughly hooked.
