Critic reviews for Black Widower

After a relatively explosive season premiere, the next two episodes of "Sons of Anarchy" may frustrate viewers hoping for insanity in every episode.

Mostly, I wanted something deeper, more resonant from SOA: Maybe a meditation on the horror of gun violence... Instead, I'm left with a bitter echo of Cassavetes: I love this show. It's so stupid.

Sure, there was plenty of anarchy and pending drama, but it was lacking the passion that fans are used to seeing associated with Jax and the other main characters. Jax's delivery overall was lackluster, too.

Sons of Anarchy has always been a show that borders on torture porn, and "Black Widower" was no exception to that sadistic streak. With relish, the show seems set to rip the teeth out of anyone necessary... along the way to its final ride.

Season seven is off to an awesome start, screaming down the freeway through a river of blood and guts and pathos. We all know how this is going to end: brutally.

If there's one thing Sutter is good for, it's for filling time. He's got a lot of time to fill this year, and I am excited as hell to see how it comes together.
