Welcome to 1995.

Hokay. So I finally watched this trainwreck. I'm not sure what they are trying to do. Is there some reason we are supposed to care more about the SoA than the Mayans? A major explosion that's "visible in two counties" wouldn't bring the ATF in? Then we move to the "hero's" premature son with his junkie ex-wife? ROTFL!

These clowns sell assault rifles to the Crips who use the weapons to kill LEOs and entire families and protect their frigging drug empire, fer crissakes. The best ending for the show would have been for the ATF to move in and kill every one of these skumbags. Including the "reformer" who apparently wants to move the SoA out of the weapons business to something less criminal, like... I don't know. What could these losers do? Chicago politician? At least that would have ended the misery. And then the ATF could move on to the scriptwriters and the trash merchants who greenlighted this crapfest.

I guess I'm kind of sick of Hollyweird trying to sell us vicious criminals as sympathetic characters. No matter. It'll be gone once the current filmed episodes are shown.... again... and again.. this is FX after all.

That's why I didn't even watch it, there's no way Hollywood is going to depict motorcyclists as anything other than criminals or some other drooling sh*theads. in fact I rarely watch regular TV anymore. I either watch the History Channel or the Military channel or just watch movies unless there's something good on SciFi or BBC.

They are all going to become "Community Organizers."

"I didn't hear you roll up"
"Yeah, I parked down the street...."

Down the street? You're on a straight-piped Harley. How far down the street, two miles?

Does that mean they get to scurry around in terror of the Hockey Mom from Alaska?

It took what, less than 36 hours for the neo-con propaganda crainial insertion on this one? Amazing how good they are at what they do. You might want to get a tin-foil hat before it's too late.
