Reasons to Watch 'Sons of Anarchy'

There's a lot more going on Sons of Anarchy besides sex and violence, if that doesn't get your attention. I admit that I've just jumped on this show's fan wagon quite recently but when I did, I couldn't believe why it took me this long. In a nutshell, the FX series takes viewers to the exciting small town of Charming, where a motorcycle gang known as SAMCRO (Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original) practically rules. It basically puts the spotlight on the bad guys with complex morals while keeping them likable enough by surrounding them with less affable characters like crooked cops, white-supremacist and other rival gangs.

Led by Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman), the club protects and controls Charming through close community relationships, bribery and violent intimidation. Though club members have "day jobs" in local industries (most of them working at Clay's auto repair shop), they primarily earn a living by importing illegal weapons and selling them to drug gangs in the East Bay, along with protection runs for local business. Serving as vice president of the club is Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnman), a relatively sensitive soul who eventually discovers an unpublished manuscript by his late father and realizes that the original intention of the club is not what the rebellious group has evolved into. Jax doesn't seem to be indecisive but he's obviously struggling with the club's direction now that Clay is married to his mother Gemma (Katey Sagal).
