The second series of Sons Of Anarchy starts tonight on Bravo. It’s been described as a modern-day Hamlet, featuring a bunch of hairy bikers who’re going all-out to protect the small town of Charming from scuzzy corporate types, arms dealers and the local police.
Sounds a little bit like an old Knight Rider episode to me, but replacing David Hasselhoff with Ron Perlman and some assorted biker mates. But hey, that’s alright. Here’s a bit more info on what’s happening in the second series:
With plotlines reminiscent of a modern day Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the immensely dark, adrenaline-pumped drama with underlying tones of sinister comedy follows the lives of an antihero outlaw motorcycle chapter called SAMCRO (Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, Redwood Original) who will do anything in their power to protect their small American town of Charming from encroaching drug-dealers, greedy corporate hands and overzealous law enforcers. Alongside this, the biking chapter are intent on guarding their thriving business of illegal arms dealing and will ruthlessly fulfil any duty required by the close-knit brotherhood in order to defend it.
With an unspoken agreement in their community allowing them to operate their questionable criminal activities whilst having the town’s best interests at heart, the series centers on protagonist Jackson “Jax” Teller, the Vice President of the Sons of Anarchy who begins questioning the club and himself.
Oh, and in case I forget, Henry Rollins is in it. I’m gonna tune in and check out a couple of episodes. We’ll review it here later tonight and have a chat about it, OK?
The first episode goes out tonight (28th April) on Bravo at 9:00PM.
