    Absolutely thrilled they’re putting it in fourth gear. The actors are superb. The writing is great. I thought for sure the future police chief was going to hook up with Jax’s old lady, till they killed him off. Since my bike has ten gears, hopefully there will be six more seasons to go. Love all of you, and all of your work. Congratulations to all. PS How do I get a bit part on this series? Love Jimmy

    I am glad that sons of anarchy is coming back on again. It is the best show ever along with army wives that comes on tv. It is a shame that these two shows don’t come on all the time and is not a weekly show all the time without a break.
