Tv Season Info

Jax (Charlie Hunnam) and Clay (Ron Perlman) vie for leadership of SAMCRO while outside threats to the gang continue to mount in the second season of the hit primetime drama. As the season gets underway, we find the death of Opie Winston's wife yielding unexpected consequences as Vice President Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) vows to take the club in a more legitimate direction, a decision that doesn't sit well with President Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman). Meanwhile, as the racist League of American Nationalists motorcycle club fronted by Ethan Zobelle (Adam Arkin) launches a brutal campaign against a divided SAMCRO, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms enters the picture.

Critic Reviews for Sons of Anarchy: Season 2

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (8)

When Sons of Anarchy debuted, I wasn't sure I wanted to see it last. But now that Sutter and company have finished the long and difficult task of fixing what wasn't working, I want to know everything it has to offer.

We're drawn into their lives, and as it starts its second season, "Sons of Anarchy" can't be left out of any conversation about the golden age of cable drama.

Maybe Sons is the perfect male soap opera. And that ain't so bad.

IGN Movies

It quickly becomes clear that there are tensions here that everyone is doing their level best to play around.

Top Critic

The whole series seems like a lurid exhaustfume fantasy, but it's a fast-paced, well-acted, profanely funny fantasy.

Entertainment Weekly
Top Critic

For a show where emotions are muted behind the crackling of leather jackets and high decibels of Harleys, the relationships between Clay and Gemma feels genuine, as does the renewed passion of Jax and Tara.

½

Not only does the first episode start with a huge bang, but things get really really complicated and chaotic right until the end. Things get morally interesting as these assholes, despite thinking they're doing some good to the community, keep screwing things over and over, not only to the ones around them but their close-knitted group as well.
